Skyline is a city situated on the edge of the largest snow biome of the original disc of Freedonia, founded by getplayerhead.sh?jayceetee&16.png jayceetee and currently managed by getplayerhead.sh?theschlozmeister&16.png theschlozmeister, getplayerhead.sh?thesprazzler&16.png thesprazzler and getplayerhead.sh?ardoom1&16.png ardoom1.

Origin

Skyline was first created as a settlement for getplayerhead.sh?jayceetee&16.png jayceetee and all his IRL friends. It expanded rapidly, with over ten players residing in the town eventually. In August 2012, getplayerhead.sh?jayceetee&16.png jayceetee, along with getplayerhead.sh?theschlozmeister&16.png theschlozmeister and getplayerhead.sh?TomWithAGun&16.png TomWithAGun, started to push for a warp for Skyline, but when getplayerhead.sh?SlowRiot&16.png SlowRiot visited, he commented on his lack of town infrastructure. getplayerhead.sh?jayceetee&16.png jayceetee was annoyed, so he asked getplayerhead.sh?Machines_Are_Us&16.png Machines_Are_Us to dig a hole to create a custom train link for Skyline to Newlands. When jay and schloz dug up to see where they were, they realized that they now had a 2000m tunnel that lead in the opposite direction to Newlands! Eventually though, a link with the Freedonia Railway System from spawn was finished, along with the self dug line direct to Newlands, owned by getplayerhead.sh?TomWithAGun&16.png TomWithAGun. Sadly, after this series of events, Skyline lay as ghost town for 5 months, with getplayerhead.sh?theschlozmeister&16.png theschlozmeister occupying its grounds, holding the title of Protectorate of Skyline, while getplayerhead.sh?jayceetee&16.png jayceetee was absent. Oh, and getplayerhead.sh?TomWithAGun&16.png TomWithAGun was banned.

The Big Build

After the first big surge in building and the push towards a warp (which it did not achieve), Skyline lay fallow for 5 months with only getplayerhead.sh?theschlozmeister&16.png theschlozmeister occupying its grounds, as players such as getplayerhead.sh?jayceetee&16.png jayceetee had recently given up or had been banned, like getplayerhead.sh?TomWithAGun&16.png TomWithAGun. Then getplayerhead.sh?theschlozmeister&16.png theschlozmeister showed getplayerhead.sh?TEllins&16.png TEllins around the town, with the intention of setting up a new Room 101 for her or a new house. Rather Suddenly, she decided to pledge her services in the now ghost-town in the hope that a warp might be obtained. The outcome remains to be seen. getplayerhead.sh?thesprazzler&16.png thesprazzler has also promised his building services and support of the project. Also, getplayerhead.sh?TEllins&16.png TEllins and getplayerhead.sh?theschlozmeister&16.png theschlozmeister have been building a Mall to bring new customers and players into the town, adding essential town infrastructure that getplayerhead.sh?SlowRiot&16.png SlowRiot said was lacking the last time he visited. Also, some guy called getplayerhead.sh?ardoom1&16.png ardoom1 has jumped on the bandwagon and has helped around the place.

Info

Please ask for building permission from getplayerhead.sh?jayceetee&16.png jayceetee, getplayerhead.sh?theschlozmeister&16.png theschlozmeister, getplayerhead.sh?thesprazzler&16.png thesprazzler or getplayerhead.sh?ardoom1&16.png ardoom1. They will grant you a space of land and some free stuff. Good quality and creative building is always appreciated so that we could soon attain a warp. If you build without permissions and your building is not judged by the management to be of a quality we encourage in Skyline, then you will have a month to improve the quality of the build. There is a train line from Newlands to Skyline, and a station on the Occidental Line from spawn, please ask for more details.
