(So this will be a sort of fan fiction and building showcase as I construct the city of Colonia Augusta from humble beginnings in a believable fashion. Colonia Augusta will be set in the times of the Phoenix Empire which I can assume is based off of the Roman Empire. Enjoy the story as I make updates to this topic periodically.)
By order of the Emperor of the Phoenix Empire, an outpost is to be established in the frontier lands of Darkmoor Forest. It is hereby decreed that the fort of Castrum Augusta is to be founded.
And so, seven brave settlers arrive in a valley located in a clearing near the sea in the untamed wilds of Darkmoor Forest.
The first order of business was to set up temporary shelter from the elements. Six small tents and a large tent for the commander of this mission, Potitus Eutherius, were built by the end of the second day. He we can see the settlers socializing by the central fire pit while the commander is patrolling and Marcellus plants some crops.
Before a perimeter wall could be established, the camp was attacked by strange creatures the settlers have taken to calling Entlings. Luckily the commander was able to dispatch the enemy before any one was seriously hurt.
By the end of the fifth day, Castrum Augusta had been built. Surely more settlers will be sent or arrive on their own in the coming days. Room for more tents has been left for the housing of any additional settlers. As the fort grows, so too shall the Empire’s glory. Perhaps one day this small encampment will become a full fledged colonia of the Empire.
