    Britannia's towns are as varied and unique as its citizens, as you travel the land you'll notice the unique personalities of these player run cities and if you dig a little deeper you'll find out that many of them have a rich and deep seated history. For that reason, each week we'll be bringing you the banners from a few of these towns. This week we have selected two towns from the Chesapeake shard, read below for their story!

    The Town of Gyldenfeld, Trammel, Chesapeake
    Number of Buildings: 20
    By: Tancred RedStar



    Gyldenfeld had its beginnings in 2003 when the Red Wolf Cafe was built on the side of the road just west of Britain as a small tavern. It began hosting weekly events of all sorts and the half dozen people who wandered into its doors soon became a full dozen, then two dozen, then several dozen. The cafe was soon enlarged, but more people kept coming so it was enlarged yet again. In time, many people of the realm began staking homesteads or purchasing land all around the cafe. Within a year it was decided, to provide for a civil and unified society, to form a government and so a town charter was drawn up and signed, incorporating the town in 384(2004).

    Gyldenfeld is home mostly to long-time citizens of the realm and it's industry revolves around fishing, lumber trade and, to a lesser degree, mining. Plant-growing is a popular hobby amongst the locals as well as backyard archaeology. Gyldenfeld has pledged unswerving fealty to the monarch and serves as a bulwark to the west of the capital, lying defensively in front of the narrow mountain pass from the western approach. Gyldenfeld enjoys good relations with other communities of the realm and imposes no taxes on residents, nor tariffs on merchant trade. Despite its appreciable size, Gyldenfeld enjoys a small town feel with just a few, common-sense laws and well maintained, but low fences between neighbors.

    Uhm, this is the wrong forum to post this in, not to mention there are no pics in a thread titled SHOW US YOUR BANNER.

    *sighs*

    Actually - it's exactly the right forum! Anything posted on the UOHerald will get relayed to U-Hall. I'm not sure why this one hit twice though.

    The feed that automatically posts UOHerald news for us does not seem to copy links to pics, etc. Follow the "More..." links at the bottom of the OP to see the full article - pics and all!

    "Its not the size that matters *Holds it together* it is the meaning of the banner."

    That it is! As is everyone's. :)

    We were one of the first banners constructed on Chesapeake, and at the time player's were being cautioned that these were meant to be a simple banner, more or less a signpost.

    Later on Mesanna took the initiative and started making them "bigger and better", and as a result there are some wonderfully detailed and beautiful banners on Chesapeake...SHE's included. Any other shard's towns still going through the process I would encourage you to have a look at some of the creative banner choices on Ches. Maybe I'm biased toward our shard (ok no maybe), but the designers on Chesapeake are top notch!

    We could have petitioned for a redoing of ours I guess, but even though
    its simple in nature, we like it and decided as a town to not ask for a new one...it suits us. :)
