Penwall Settlement in Ailuridae | World Anvil


The main settlement of Ailuridae. Penwall is the heart of the land and the central powerhouse of House Ailurus. Home to Archon Mykola Void, Polemarch Senna Nightshade, the Ferals and the main storehouses of the protectorate. The city stands as a testement to what friendship and determination can achieve.


Penwall is the capital city of the Ailuridae Protectorate, which is a newly formed state covering the areas of Oregon State, Washington State, Aldergrove BC, and portions of Idaho State. It is ruled primarily by the head of House Ailurus (currently Mykola Void) as part of a constitutional monarchy.   The people of Penwall are expected to pay their dues to the Ailuridae Protectorate, and the Ailuridae Protectorate is expected to use those dues to provide infrastructure, services, and safety for all the people of Penwall aand the entiriety of the Protectorate. As of 2023, the income tax base is around 35%, but increases significantly after a declared income of over 150 million Woodlander Talons. The majority of these taxes go back into the public service programs of the Ailurus Protectorate.


Penwall is surrounded by a large wall meant to bolster defense and slow down would be invaders. In addition the Feral Den, centeral operations for the Ferals, also resides in the heart of Penwall. Funding is also being set aside to set up some literomantic wards to aid in defense though they have not yet been put in place.


House Ailurus is planning on undertaking the gargantuan task of refurbishing its infrastructure system to better suit the needs of a place that will consistently be overrun by zombies every November. Some highways and interstates are being widened with specially-designed defense points installed to be battle locations if needed, while the routes to the Lapin and Meles Protectorates are being reinforced. The construction is scheduled to start sometime in 2024.   In addition, Penwall features a large state-of-the-art hospital which is supported by a public health care system,as well as a university, arts school, airport, portal pad, bunker, multiple parks and a fairground, a harbour, markets, a temple, and many other amenities. The focus of rebuilding penwall having been put on those locations that the magical contributors thought important, useful, or relaxing.


House Ailurus' pride comes in the form of a House-sponsored Storehouse system which is designed to be able to keep up to 5,000 people fed, clothed, and alive for up to a year. This Storehouse system utilizes a mix of hidden, underground, and public bunkers to store supplies. When the world is not at risk, the Storehouses act as food banks to the needy.


The original city of Penwall was destroyed in the Third Word War, leaving mear ashes of what had been built except for the storehouses that remained untouched. As such the city was deemed uninhabitable and Mykola Void and Senna Nightshade began looking into perperations for reconstruction.   After the third word war ended and a few months of deliberation. House Ailurus was granted the territory that was unclaimed, presumed to have belonged to the missing. Shortly after the decision was made construction of the new Penwall began. The city was built with a literomantic ritual in April 2023. The ritual did not go smoothly, though disaster was averted by working together and through friendship and quick thinking.
