About the player behind Countess Solana Storstrand
I have been playing video games since the late 70s on my father's Apple II+. I loved games like the Wizardry and Ultima series. When MMOGs finally hit the shelves, I immediately joined Ultima Online. I even joined their counselor program for a time. At this point, I have played more MMOGs than I can actually remember. I have led many guilds, and been a member of so many more. I primarily enjoy roleplaying, PvE, and deep story elements, but I am open to other styles of play as well.
About the County
Primary Goal: To create an entire county that is family friendly, LGBTQ+ friendly, and free from both misogyny and misandry, but also full of fun, a thriving economy, and with interesting events that will draw people from all around.
We also wish to create a thriving crafting community, and our Discord channel is setup to encourage that. (See Discord section)
Our county is located in the Rhynelands on the southern border with Alesia:
We have 3 major settlements, two major rivers, and quite a few mountainous areas good for hiking and exploration (especially the western range). These locations may also be ideal for extraction of ores and stone. We have a great deal of forage-able plants, plenty of fresh water, and fine arable land suitable for farming.
The town in the center on the lake is Tân Aelwyd, and is the county seat. It is on a major trade route between Alesia and the capital of Vornair in the next county to the north. We fully intend to grow massive amounts of grain and other crops to trade to our King up the river. It is also our hope to acquire large stocks of quality Kypiq silk and work it into the finest garments Vornair has seen. Our proximity to Kypiq lands will play heavily into this plan.
To the west, we have Kestleburn, ministered over by Mayor Aiden Hawk. A fine village delving with deep caves full of ore and stone. It also has possibly the finest fishing in the whole county.
To the east, we have the garrison delving of Logynmhar, ministered over by Baron Lohmac. This high mountain delving is similarly rich in ore and stone but is predominantly known for its excellent hunting and foraging.
Ideas for the county:
We will have a shrine mostly dedicated to both the Virtori and Faedin faiths, but with accommodations for other faiths as well. As such we expect pilgrimages from various other locales.
Festivals for holy days and regular market days for vendors to sell their wares.
To foster a strong economy, new businesses will be able to take low interest loans using county funds.
A wide range of tribesfolk with different ideas and cultures.
OSHA - Organization for Safe and Happy Adventures - will have their headquarters in the county seat, promoting safe roads and quick responses to safety issues.
Extensive farmland for anything that will grow in our area - Food will be the lifeblood of everything. If we make it ourselves, we become the lifeblood of the duchy, and possibly the Kingdom.
I am open to more ideas to make our county interesting and fun!
