The Kingdom of Paranor Island is a small country off the west coast of Wales and east coast of Ireland, in the Irish Sea. It is one of the world’s oldest and most powerful monarchies. The current king of Paranor Island is His Majesty King Alfred IV of the House of Leah. Paranor’s powerful enjoyed great prosperity through the Colonial Age and the country still has territories in the Atlantic and the Caribbean. During World War II the Kingdom was invaded by the German war machine and suffered extensive damage from Luftwaffe air raids. Because of this there are many more modern buildings in the country’s oldest cities. The capital city of Paranor is Leah, named for the Royal Family. The city lies beneath a dormant, believed extinct volcano called Mt. Argo, which when last erupted two thousand years ago killed six hundred people.






More will follow soon, thanks for reading,

Craig
Very Happy

Paranor Island Under Construction

Post by CraigKingOfIreland on Tue Jul 29, 2008 9:23 am



CAUTION: City Under Construction


For the first update I'll show some pics around Paranor that are currently under construction (that being most of it)

-------------------------------------------------


Firstly, this is a plan (and somewhat reality) of the islands main region at the very south. Red is street level Metro (GLR) and blue is underground Metro. Black is InterCity rail and brown in suburban commuter rail. Finally light blue is motorway.




Killeshan is my attempt at a proper skyscraper city without going to the ridiculous extremes I went to in Normandy.



Leah, my nation's capital isn't quite the way I want it yet even though it is the oldest and most worked on city in my region. For that reason I'm not going to show much of it and none of the really good areas.








Melcena is my first real small town so be nice.








And finally, Illian, my latest city. I have good expectations for this city and hope they're not misplaced

Leah

Post by CraigKingOfIreland on Tue Jul 29, 2008 9:25 am



Although the King has complete discretionary power in all matters, Paranor Island does have a parliament. It was created by the king to facilitate the political needs of running a country. While technically wielding no power, Parliament runs the country on behalf of the King, taking care of day to day matters. The system of government is modeled on Paranor’s neighbour, the Republic of Ireland, with a proportional representation system. Parliament is made up of two hundread members, five from each constituency and elections are held every five years. After elections are held, Parlaiment appoints an An Chéad Aire (Prime Minister) who in turn appoints government ministers. Leah is the capital of the Kingdom and all government departments are are located here. Leah is also a economic, cultural, and educational centre and the city has a very long history.

Wow, amazing CJ! Can't believe I haven't seen it before! I love how you show some under construction shots, most people would be too afraid to do that but I like seeing how the cities began and then going back and comparing that with the fully built city Smile.

I especially like the area housing all the embassies and the picture of the cathedral is fantastic too.

Sorry to hear about the death of your king, hmm maybe this might lead to the nation becoming a republic? Viva la revolution Razz.


Glad I get to be the first CJ available on SimSports, this is a great addition to the site Slacker, it should make it more active

Thank you, and what a way to start the CJ section it is Very Happy. You should bid for the Simlympics sometime Razz.

My Simlympic park & bid is currently under construction, but is for Killeshan, not Leah. I am putting a lot of thought and effort into the process, so it might take a while Very Happy

Simlympic Torch Relay

Post by CraigKingOfIreland on Sun Aug 03, 2008 11:45 pm





The Simlympic Torch Relay is a huge event taking place in over 20 CJs/MDs all around the SC4 world. The Torch Relay will be at a different city each day for 27 days, climaxing with the beginning of the August Simlympics on August 24th. To follow the relay please click here and for more information on the Simlympics, or to sign up to compete, please click here

The Simlympic Torch Relay has come to Paranor Island and the it's capital city, Leah

Here is a map of the route the torch will be taking with major landmarks along the way


The event has been widely covered by the national media as it is a much needed happy occasion for the country's citizens


Many of the city's major roads were closed off for the route, but not many people have been angered by the fact. Here is the torch as it passes by Parliament building


The torch passed by many important sporting areas of the city, including the University of Leah


Thousands of people lined the city's streets for the event with great enthusiasm. Here is a huge number of people gathered at Guinness Stadium minutes before the torch passes

Here is Leah International Airport, located in the southern Leah suburb of Arendia. The terminal building is several years old and is due for rebuilding once Terminal 2 constructed.






Here also is a diagram of the terminal layout





Thanks for comments Smile

Have a couple of ideas, but I haven't completely decided where T2 will go Smile






I've been inspired by similar things by other people (by which of course I mean I stole their idea) doing this kind of thing
If you would like an embassy in Paranor Island please leave a comment with your country name, link to your CJ and your flag

Thank you to those of you who have commented (and those who have read)
