Hello people! In this thread I shall be explaining my city, my plans for it, and various other things that one would deem fitting for this post.

 

Name

 

The name originates from one of the rivers in the Underworld from Greek Mythology, Lethe. The waters of the Lethe River would erase the memories of those who would drink from it; the word Lethe in Greek means "Oblivion" or "Forgetfulness", fitting in with the memory loss thing. Why would I call my town for a River in Hell, you ask? Well, since my town is very nature themed and overall filled with a lot of flora, one could say it was forgotten by humanity, until very recently.

 

Natural Design


Lethe is located on the edges of a shallow lake (Which is nameless for the instant). The land starts sloping upwards from the shores towards the hillier part of the jungle biome. A river that sprouts from the lake passes through the city's first level, separating it in two.


Architectural design

 

The architecture of the first level and part of the second level Lethe is largely inspired by coastal cities (I don't really have an example). However, from the 2nd level and up, it is replaced with a very stone/gray related palette. The buildings further up are not only bigger, but much more spaced, compared to the buildings on the first level.

 

Now, you may wonder, what's all this about levels? Well, Lethe is built on a series of platform that elevate in a "Shelf" method away from the lake shore and further towards the jungle and matching the overall elevation of the location.

 

Plans for the City

 

I have many things planned for Lethe, mainly it being the new commerce center of the server. The level one shopping district is not only beautiful but once my portal Airship will be set up, it will be very easily accessible.

 

I also plan to have a full on residential district with actual people living in it. However, everything is built by me and my associates.
