Notable Points of Interest in Riopoderos

RiopoderosPlan.png

1. Vastos Paisajes

This will be the first Castellanese settlement in Riopoderos, in 1799. One of the highest-altitude incorporated towns in the FSA, Vastos Paisajes will have a historic old district and generally not be much influenced by the Ingerish, somewhat like a Santa Fe without the McDonalds.

2. Barrancai

Somewhat like Grand Junction. A semiarid, mountainous city that was once prosperous from the mining industry (specifically silver), but has now grown poorer. Its population is in slight decline. It's not really much to look at, but it has some pretty great views, is the headquarters of a major donut company, and has an interesting new museum about earthquakes.

3. Mount Camacho-Vazquez

One of the four major mountains in the Mighty Guard Range, at 13,782 feet.

4. Mount Hina

The tallest of these four major mountains, at 14,001 feet.

5. Mount Coombs

Another of these mountains, sitting at 13,808 feet, although controversy has arisen over its true height. Also a popular ski resort.

6. Mount Greene

The southernmost of these mountains, with a height of 13,879 feet. Has a world-renowned Castellanese restaurant and inn at its base camp.

7. Mighty Guard

A small town that gives spectacular, panoramic views of the mountains of the same name. Known for its quirkiness.

8. Savillines Falls

Although it's not very tall, this waterfall is surrounded by lush, green forests, and is located in a wildlife preserve.

9. Porte Springs

A master-planned community, designed in 1989 and one of the fastest-growing cities in the country. Has exceptionally low crime and unemployment rates.

10. Lago Palavero Tonora

The largest lake in Riopoderos, almost larger than the adjacent city of Coriolis itself.

11. Coriolis

The capital and one of the first Ingerish settlements of Riopderos.

12. Planckwell

The first Ingerish settlement in Riopoderos, officially incorporated on January 20, 2023. I hear they're planning a massive 200th anniversary celebration...

13. Summerlin

The largest city in Riopoderos. It's a cross between Denver and San Francisco, with a lake to its southeast and mountains to its northwest. Beginning as a normal agricultural town, the town began growing rapidly after precious metals were discovered in a nearby mountain range in the early 1900s. Although the mine went defunct in 1984, the town did not, being boosted by being the prime town for IT companies as well as a large producer of geothermal energy. Today it is one of the most populous cities in the entire Unnamed Mountains.

14. Hafen Bay

Although it's actually a lake, the term "Hafen Bay" was popularized by many aristocrats in the 1930s. Today it is almost like a small Californian (Tauhonian?) coastline, with millionaire's houses and foothills surrounding the area.

15. Fronteras Canyon

A beautifully green canyon right at the foothills of the Unnamed Mountains.

16. Jolesville

A satellite town of Summerlin, with a population of ~90,000. One of the FSA's leading tech companies, Versatil, is in this city's limits.

17. Indie

This Boulder-esque town hosts one of the world's most sought-after marathons, and is home to some of the FSA's greatest long-distance runners.

18. Las Millas

The second-largest city in Riopoderos. Home to a large waterpark and Victorian-equivalent era houses.

19. Millas Valley

Hosts some of the largest wheat production in the FSA.

20. Corbin Valley

Here, the land survey deteriorates and gives way to almost east-coast like rolling hills and picturesque towns.

21. High-Tail Range

Semiarid plains known for its abundance of horses.

22. Squawfoot National Forest

An almost-untouched area of the wilderness bubbling with geothermal opportunities, as well as canyons and conifers.
