The city charter includes 8,000 acres of cropland, a legacy of the old Republic of Aleath.
This land is farmed by approximately 140 freeholders who pay taxes to the city.
Given the area size of 8,000 acres, which equates to 12.5 sq miles, would these croplands all be within Aleta or could they spill over into Kedisa, all the way to the Eryn River and South of Lyb & Ilune?
Using the Kanday Interactive maps in CC2, creating a boudary within Aleta alone gives and area reach along the Eryn River upto the border of Aleta/Kedisa (west bank of the Goran) and northward to Bilor (near the Toll gate), heading west just south of Maryael to the outskirts of Witney and looping around Nadar, Welur, Rabint back to Aleath.
Given the size of area, I've been pondering how this would not only look, but how would it be governed & farmed by the 140 freeholders. As the crow flies, a line of distance from Aleath to boundary of Witney is approx 4.5 miles. So with that, would there be small villages breaking up the freeholders, be an expansion/extension of Kurnil village (SW), Morien village (NW), Afael village (NE), and Arsone village (SE)?
If this acreage spilled over into Kedisa, this would be an extension of Afael and Arsone, whereas Kurnil and Morien villages would be the larger one to have the most area.
Just trying to paint a picture of it's area, structure, and layout. Would love other peoples viewpoints on this.
