    Site name: Wall of Falador
    Location: The wall starts in Walltown city and stretches to the coastal town of Port Elleija - The Southern border of Falador region
    Country: Os Corelia
    Category: Historical
    Why it should be chosen a Heritage Site:
    The site is of historical importance to democratic history in Os Corelia. It was built when the nation was known at Taloshia run by a dictatorist militry regime. The 13th Viscount of Os Corelia Jostiah Krell was aware the faladorian peoples were resisting the Taloshian regime so he decided to wall off the states southern border and deny the state basic supplies and amenities leading to mass starvation and famine. Anyone born in Falador was made a second class citizen and oppressed at every opportunity.

    The wall is a physical warning from history. It was also on this very wall the current Viscount, Kalistus Xavier, declared a proclmamtion of democracy and created a constitution to restore rights to all citizens.

    The wall has had access routes carved through the stone as the citizens didnt want a part of their history destroyed in the way the Taloshians destroyed falador.

  • Site name: Cathedral of St Juliana (Cathedralis Sanctae Iulianae)
    Location: Port Aureus
    Country: Pax Aurea
    Category: Historical/Cultural
    Why it should be chosen a Heritage Site:

    This beautiful cathedral is a majestic testament to the exemplary craftmanship of medieval Aurean stonemasons, glass artists, and sculptors, and a prime example of the gothic architecture in the then-Republic of Pax Aurea during the Late Middle Ages. Constructed in the busy mercantile center of Port Aureus between 1432-1460, it stands between two eras, borrowing its beauty from them both: the ecclesiastical monumentalism of the Middle Ages and the freely-flowing artistic brilliance of the Renaissance.

    The interior of the cathedral is decorated with spectacular stained glass windows, exquisite marble statues, and frescos from the 15th and 16th centuries, painted by such prominent Aurean names as Cornelius Salveni and Jean-Baptiste Murcellius.

    The cathedral was named after its patron saint, St Juliana (or Julian) of Norwich, a 14th century English canoness and mystic. It played a crucial role in Pax Aurea's Protestant Reformation, being the key location to the religious upheaval that eventually led into the formation of the Lutheran Universalist Church of Pax Aurea, the denomination that half the Aureans still follow. Today, it is an important shrine to both Lutherans and Catholics alike, a site of pilgrimage, and a popular tourist destination.
