Shannonia expands: Riverside
Rollin'... rollin'... rollin' on a river
About this creation

Riverview Arena. Not that you can see the river from inside. This Saturday - world championship bullfighting. Visiting matadors and toreadors are often shocked and dismayed to learn that city ordinances prohibit them using any equipment except boxing gloves versus those angry bulls.





Alpine High ski and snowboard. "Like, chill out, dude... we'll get to you in a minute..." says the scruffy-looking punk behind the counter. "Want some Doritos? These are like, SO GOOD right now!"






Easy Rider bicycle rental. There is no helmet law in Shannonia, but riders are required to wear those embarrassingly revealing spandex shorts.







The mighty Blue River may not be as picaresque as the Mississippi, or as long as the Nile, or as steeped in history as the Danube, or as dammed as the Yangtze, or as piranha-filled as the Amazon, but... what was the point again? Oh yeah -- it beats anything Australia's got. Murray-Darling, ha! Don't make me laugh.





Sherman's Bait and Tackle. Don't expect either in here, though, they mostly sell beer. And those hats that hold two cans of beer with straws coming down. And T-shirts with beer company logos on them. Sherman stands by his motto that "Fishing isn't about catching fish -- it's about getting drunk in a boat."





Aurum Hotel. Do solid gold fixtures dispense water or flush away your waste any better than the ceramic and stainless steel ones found in lesser hotels? The mega-rich snobs who stay here say "Yes!"






Little O's tube shop. If you've never floated down a river on an inner tube, you've never truly lived. Unless you live in a country where crocodiles may eat you for doing so. In which case you can probably be forgiven for not trying it.






Plasticstackers Lodge. Masons, Elks, whatever Fred Flintstone was a member of... every town has its fraternal organization of something or other. This is Shannonia's.







Every rock outcrop and patch of trees pictured on the near side of the river here has its own different city park. You think I'm coming up with a name and caption for every single one of them? Keep dreaming, chief.






The Illuminati Hotel. Do you really want to know what's going on? Do you REALLY? Too bad. There are no vacancies for the likes of you. Ever.









Orange Smoothie's tower -- no, wait, that's wrong. I now officially have too many different buildings to keep track of. This one is... this is... Bah, I got nothin'. Make up your own caption.






Riverview Apartments. What the description in the apartment guide fails to mention is that those ***FABULOUS RIVER VIEWS!*** are only available in the top floor apartments with south or east exposures. And none of those are vacant right now.






Coincidence that the river makes a big S? Actually yes, but it works out pretty well. It would be really weird if it made a big O or something.







Okay now, this one is the smoothie place. I think.








The Whine Cellar. The loyal fans of the Spinners, Shannonia's semi-pro foosball team (who play their home games across the street in the Riverview arena, and who have lost 153 straight matches) gather here afterwards to commiserate and drunkenly rail against the opposing teams' obvious cheating.





Sunshine Home. You know those preternaturally happy, relentlessly cheerful, upbeat and optimistic, go-go-go rah-rah-rah types that normal people absolutely can't stand? They get committed here, where they can't bother the rest of society.






And like a river, the expansions just keep on flowing. More to come...

Is the whine cellar where the people go to complain about their troubles? Anyway, I love this micro city! The details are incredible, and the landscape looks very realistic! Keep building!

Quoting Topsy Cret Don't you mean picturesque?
No, I mean picaresque: 1. Of or involving clever rogues or adventurers. 2. Of or relating to a genre of usually satiric prose fiction originating in Spain and depicting in realistic, often humorous detail the adventures of a roguish hero of low social degree living by his or her wits in a corrupt society.

Don't you mean picturesque? Anyway, again, I'm surprised you didn't some kind of military station or something near the river. Good day

Love the orange dreamcicle tower. Gives me a craving for one of those little cups of orange sherbet and vanilla ice cream with a little wooden spoon. No treat is as tasty without that woody goodness.

Murray-Darling: yeah, you got me there. You can skip stones from one side to the other (of the sections of it that haven't died yet) and that Illuminati Hotel is looking dang fine.
