Jasper's Valley [City Journal]

Postby Quantum Reality » Fri Nov 22, 2013 11:36 pm

Founded by Old Man Jasper once upon a time, this idyllic turn-of-the-20th-century small town has a very typical cozy town feeling. With many of its citizens tending to the basics of agriculture as their parents and grandparents did before them, the addition of a brewery, while regarded with suspicion by some, is hardly a threat considering how readily the beer it produces goes down after a long day of hard work. A few of the wealthier citizens who don't live in farmhouses are fortunate enough to at least pretend to be ranchers, living in haciendas, or dispensing with that altogether to live in fine Tudor or Tract mansions; these folks are the lawyers, bankers, town councillors and the mayor.

The private school, looming above the blocks of farm houses, accepts the scions of those wealthy hacienda owners, and grants the occasional scholarship to those bright less-economically-fortunate pupils who show promise of growing beyond the farm or the barn.

All in all, it seems very much as though things will stay the same as always, the brewery barely registering as a portent of the industrial empire yet to come...

Jasper's Valley expands a bit! A university campus has opened up, spawning some of the more intellectual pursuits in the town. Old-timers may grumble a bit about the pointy-headed intellectual kids, but for the most part, people take it in stride as their young ones can stay in the area and get a good education without having to spend many Simoleons. :)

The wealthier denizens of the city come in for their share as well, with more Tudor houses and Tract Mansions available for them to live comfortably.

... And the first signs of the rise of industrialism come with the Spring Water plant across the river and two Row Houses for those who need to be close to their workplace.

And the industrial district mushrooms! Along with the rise of the Oil Refinery and other marvels of the industrial age, comes a complete re-working of all the roads into properly paved streets, and housing for the workers sprouts up like weeds.

Great town! Thank you for sharing this. I admit, the aspect of keeping the houses super close together was one I forgot, but there is a definite charm to close neighborhoods.

Cool. :)
