Anville is one of the most important cities in Godville. The town is the leading supplier of weapons and armor which it exports to the rest of the towns. The city is known for being the capital of forgery. Any novice blacksmith can come into this town and leave in a year as a master. The town is home to thousands upon thousands of anvils, many of which are more than a hundred years old.


Game Notes

  • Equipment is of high quality here, but is also expensive.
  • Gold bricks can sometimes be purchased for less here than in other towns.

Data

In Godville Times:

  • Day 232 g.e. "Have your golden bricks stacked up in a useless pile? We’ll put your gold into work! Anville, “The Field of Wonders”."
  • Day 234 g.e. " Valiant guards of the city of Anville seized a large shipment of almost real donuts from the pockets of the citizens. Grim Creeper was arrested as a suspect and very likely to be released back to home due to lack of evidence."

History

Anville is one of those rare cases where the town is actually named for the reason you might think of. Anville began as a terrible joke that was circulated among the community of blacksmiths. They gave themselves this name as a joke but this little joke has in fact morphed over time into a large town in which the culture revolves around iron. Not too surprisingly then, the short temper of these blacksmiths combined with their love of decent weaponry means that the history of this town is rife with small battles and petty civil warfare.

Geography

Anville, looking south from the Hypergiant Delta

Anville is located directly on the west side of the Hypergiant Delta. Because it is right near a water source, it uses small ships to transport goods using the Mainstream. The town is rich in ores (e.g. gold, silver,iron) and gems (sapphire, emerald, ruby, etc.) which it uses to make and decorate its weapons.

Since the town is located on the coast, it is extremely hard to reach as the westerly winds make travelling around the area a most difficult task. Mines litter the nearby countryside, but the smog they produce is dispersed nearer to the town by the sea gusts while a vast cloud is carried away to another faraway land. The inhabitants of Anville are overjoyed, though one can't imagine that the place receiving the grotesque mists are.

Distinct Features

The city is often called "Clanky" due to the somewhat disorientating hammering of newly forged weaponry. Anville has the highest prices for its armor than any other town, yet people don't complain. This allows it to have one of the most successful economies in all the land. Despite the abundance of metals, Anville makes all its ships out of wood and bamboo. Where they get the bamboo from is a mystery to outsiders. The city also has a museum which houses hundreds of ancient weapons and relics from the land's prolific past.
