Avalon City

Description[edit]

Avalon City was the Federated Suns capital city, located on the primary New Avalon continent of Albion, north of the planet's equator and a few kilometers east of the Grand Avalon Mountains, on a natural island in the convergence region of the Albion, Cris, and Thames rivers. The environment surrounding the city is an assortment of towns and villages, forests, mountains (with Mount Davion to the immediate east), and prairies.[1]

The city of Barrington lies to the north-west. The city's DropPort lies south, across the Cris River. The New Avalon Institute of Science lies beyond that.[2][3]

History[edit]

Avalon City was first developed as a theme park with a medieval motif, which inspired the use of that imagery by the Davion family as a means to inspire confidence in the realm. The occupation by the Word of Blake during the Jihad left the municipality devastated.[1]
