Your world is coloured greatly by the cities, and no city is more important than the Capital city. This is where the government usually is; it is a center of trade and the destination of tourists; if your capital is boring, the whole country is boring! Here are some pics of various fictional cities; Feeling inspired yet? Great! Write 2-3 paragraphs about a traveller entering the Capital City for the first time; be sure to include details such as Any common themes in the archetecture The feeling the city gives you (peaceful, at-home, oppressed, chlaustrophobic, adrenaline) How transport works Any famous landmarks Alternatively, fill out this form or use your own: Name: Rough population: What are the slums like? Is the city segmented at all? What famous landmarks exist? What is the archetecture like? Is there a colour theme at all? Is there a lot of nature? (trees, gardens, parks?) Are the streets very busy with people, traffic, open-air markets, peddlers, or is everything inside? What kind of environment is the city built on? Above all else, your capital city must be impressive. It doesnt have to be huge (heck, if your country is young or small it wouldn't make sense for a huge metropolis!) It doesn't have to be paved or built on a unique geographic site like a waterfall or cliff, it just has to be impressive.
