So I'm writing the initial stages for my Free City. It's admittedly very much in a WIP state (First Draft) but I thought I'd post it and see what you guys think of it so far.
Realm: Shyrish (Formerly) Currently: Flying
Inhabitants: Aelves and Humans
Factions: Darkling Covens, Freeguild, Daughters of Khaine, ???
History: Nagganar was originally a city situated in Shyish. Settled in mountains remote and cold, but rich in minerals both precious and magical in nature. When scions of Slaanesh invaded the realm of death some found
the aeleven city and began to lay siege. While Nagganar was well armed and armored the chaos hosts were numberless and covered the entire mountain range destroying everything in their wake. The inhabitants desperate to
escape their doom bid their sorcerresses and mages to find some way for them to escape. Lest their souls be anguish for eternity, and escape they did. The Mages of Nagganar devised a scheme to rip their very mountain
to the skies.
Since than Nagganar has soared throughout the skies aiding various factions against chaos. While not always successful in saving the lands of those people, there are many new towns, villages, and cities that orbit the
Physical Description: I want to talk about this as I've had fun imagining how the city looks although I have very little in the ability to write or describe it. I imagine the top of the mountian to be a sprawling
metropolis of aelven architecture with a massive tower crowning the top of the mountain, while on the underside of the mountain there are stalactite esque towers (that are connected by massive bridges that
crisscross between the spires) that climb down to reach the earth with ballista and
other weapons of war addorning them ready for war. The tower that crowns the mountain also is the lowest raching stalactite, and has a drawbridge or ramp like structure that can be lowered to deploy Nagganar's
armies or it's traders with it's fellow groundbound cities.
Now orbiting Nagganar and connected by great bridges are cities and lands that have been connected to the mountain over time. These will be primarily human cities, but I like the idea of having daughters of khaine
temples and other structures here as well.
Colors: Black, Purple, & Gold are the primary scheme of the Elves of Nagganar however many of the different cities that orbit Nagganar have an additional color to represent their former kingdoms & homes.
I decided to embrace the High Fantasy nature of Age of Sigmar, and make my city fly. A reason for this is I can now just insert my city into any narrative I'd like with "Well my City flies so they are here now". One thing I've been considering but haven't decided on is having Nagganar raid different cities, lands or factions for food, or plunder. I'm not 100% sure on the direction I'm going to take the city yet though so it's up for grabs.
