As Schulmania is an ever-growing nation with a lengthy and colorful past, newcomers may not be fully aware of the rich heritage of Schulmania. So, here's a second installment of a brief guide of the essentials for any Schulmania fan. Learn about the fascinating history of Devonshire.
Firmly entrenched in Schulmanicus and Atkinos Districts, Schulminions commissioned the Fleet of Discovery to explore the seas to the east. Three great fleet captains were under command of Admiral Miles Macintosh. Their thorough exploration opened up the vast new territory of Devonshire to colonization. The City Planning Office got to work choosing an initial site for settlements. Soon, it was decided to build around Lake George and prepare sites at Devon Creek. The Council of Lake George assumed control of the colonial government, and the first of four towns was built: Georgetown . Georgetown was an immediate success, leading eventually to real estate speculation on an unprecedented scale. The next town, built on the western shores of Lake George, was more rural. George's Crossroads is a small farming community. On the north shore, St. George became a fashionable destination. It became known as the "heart of great shopping" for its many fine upscale businesses and lovely homes .
While Lake George was being developed, the Schulmericho site was being prepared - for a town far larger than any in history! The first expedition to settle Schulmericho ended in disaster. The repercussions of this debacle show up many times in Schulminion history and in many places.
If this tragedy was not bad enough, fears about a curse of some sort over Schulmericho began to surface. Luckily, these concerns did not impact development in Georgehampton, the largest of the Lake George towns. Named the administrative capital of the region, Georgehampton was home to a college and a hospital. It provided homes to nearly 5,000 colonists as well. All four Lake George towns were serviced by the port town of Darkel by the Sea. This community serves as a great starting point for settling the interior. Land to the south and east has been occupied with small farms and villages. The most significant of these is the hilltop village of Monkey Power Mountain. This farming village is the hub of activity in eastern Devonshire. The Lake George and Monkey Power Mountain areas are catalysts for the rapid expansion of Devonshire and its full annexation into Schulmania, shedding the "colony" moniker. The drive for additional resources and land for development is pushing Devonshire eastward - toward the hills - and the unknown.
