Vallusa?

Postby Schlake » Sun Jun 18, 2017 8:38 pm

I've tried google image search using both English and German words, but I can't find a picture of that city. Does anyone know a URL to an image? I really want to see a visualization of the Firetower of the Temple of Ingerimm. Alternatively a good textual description would work in either language.

    Das Land an Born und Walsach page 118
    Land des schwarzen Bären page 103-104, M181
    Wege der Götter page 124-125, 127

I also cannot find any pic of it.

Amazon has those for....about 230 euros. That's a bit much. I think I'll wait. In the meantime, do you know if the tower is just a red tower as depicted on the coat of arms, or is it a lighthouse, or something else? Is it just a tall tower to show off, or does it have a functional purpose?

At least the "Wege der Götter" you can buy for small money (16,90€, DSA4)

And in ebay you can find "Das Land an Born und Walsach" (DSA3) ...

Did you take a look at the Wiki?
http://de.wiki-aventurica.de/wiki/Vallusa

It says that there is a map at Rauhes Land im hohen Norden and Land des schwarzen Bären (I have to check this at home).

It also says "Auf der dem Meer zugewandten Seite wurde der Ingerimm-Tempel mit einem 20 Schritt hohen Feuerturm und einer ewig brennenden Flamme in die Sturmmauer eingebaut."

So it is an Ingerimm temple with a kind of lighthouse and a everlasting flame. It does not tell the color, though.

Furthermore it says, that no other building may be higher than this tower (lighthouse).

@GTStar
hmmm, there are maps in this books, but he is searching a pic from the tower. I would say a map will not help him.

I did find that last night, but I only scanned it quickly, and didn't notice that in there. Thanks for pointing it out!

I hope it is ok. If not, then please delete my post. Here a text from "Land des schwarzen Bären".

Schon die ersten Siedler mussten erkennen, dass ihnen die Insel nicht nur Schutz bietet, sondern auch manche Gefahr birgt. Da sie die Molochen aus den nahen Sümpfen zu Frondienst beim Aufbau der Stadt zwangen, zürnte ihnen Efferd: Sturmflut u m Sturmflut sandte er gegen die Stadt und nichts vermochte sein Wüten zu beenden. Da riefen die Vallusaner Erzzwerge zur Hilfe, die in nur drei Monden ein gewaltiges Werk vollbrachten: Aus Granit und Basalt fügten sie eine 15 Schritt hohe Wehrmauer, die fortan allen Unbilden des Meeres trotzte. Den Mittelturm aber, 20 Schritt über dem Meer, weihten sie ihrem Gott, so dass sich dort heute der lngerimm­ Tempel der Stadt befindet, der gleichzeitig als Feuerturm fungiert. Die Legende besagt, dass Ingerimm seinen Schutz von der Stadt nehmen würde, wenn ein Bauwerk von Menschenhand den Feuerturm an Höhe überträfe...


I looked up the above pages. Only 'Land des schwarzen Bären' offered some information. The other sources were only short references. A picture of the tower was nowhere.
