[Æonis] - Imperial Warrant Street / Rue des Fournisseurs Minecraft Map

The imperial warrants were build following the great plans of the area northern of the palace. The plans conceived a concept for the whole area, also developing the hills next to the small valley at the Violane to create space for the new memorial Sacre-Cœur de Lucrécy and a huge square featuring a statue of the deceased Impératrice Belle. At the western slope of the adjacent hill flattened space was created for the individual mansions of the empire-wide nobility, interconnected by a winding street.
Two years later the plannings for a new quarter in the north of the cathedral were finished, where a new palatial building was conceived for the archbishop as well as several religious buildings.
Besides the imperial warrants a new inner city harbour was built to distribute and trade imported goods, also featuring a harbour office and a small market place. At the opposite of the newly arranged street, a triumphal arch is located together with a tourist information. The space left between the Place de Belle and the warrants got recently filled by a gastronomical arrangement and the new built main postal office with a celestial harbour to allow the anchorage of postal airships.
Right Side:
  • The Harbour Office:
The first building you get to see to the right side of the road is also one of the first ones build there. The Harbour office is not exactly part of the warrants as it is an imperial bureau and its employees are sent to control the arrival and departure of the ships at the harbour as well as to admonitor the adjacent market. Its position is closely linked to its distribution as it features a huge thouroughfare from the mainstreet to the harbour and passages for pedestrians at both sides, thus the building itself works as a gate to the waterways of the city.
  • Marchands Di Versante:
It is almost impossible to not know about the ventaliccian merchant family Di Versante. Settled in the northern region of Ventalicci in the region of Pezzano with many trading posts all around the world, this family managed to create monopolies with many rare trading goods from the new world such as gemstones, ivory, porcelain and jade. So noone was wondering as this family was chosen to become imperial warrant for imported goods of the new world even for the imperialty of Castaire. Therefore they built a trading post with space for storage and a connection to the new inner city harbour. Furthermore, this merchant house is the only one where the operating family does not live but a delegate and his family. The house is coloured like the family coat of army with bright yellow and orange plaster and features a typical ventaliccian balcony at the front tower. Besides that, there is some space in the backyard and also a huge terrace at the rear side to dry goods such as tobacco.
  • Boucherie Hackpierre:
Originally the Hackpierres were resident in the southern region of the empire in Lanthenas close to the coast of the Mer Blanc. Their cattle farming and the quality of their meat products got them well known among the local nobility and their reputation even got them to the imperial court where they earned the title of a imperial warrant. The head of the family moved with his wife and children to Lucrecy and left the responsibility of the farm in the hands of his brother-in-law where they still get their meat from. After they lived in Lucrécy for three years, the royal warrants district was constructed and the family bought a little property in it to be closer to the palace. The five story house they built is coloured rose and is recognized by its remarkable oriel in the front.
  • Festivity Planning Office:
In order to better control all the logistic expenditure our Empereur decided to construct a building just for these purporses right in the center of the imperial warrants district. The head office of this building is directly supervised by the Grand Maître de l’Empire, Jomes Cendrefort, the highest servant and confident of our Empereur. The employees have to coordinate all the different kinds of warrants for specific events and to prepare them for the upcoming overcapacities. To faster communicate the building consists of two properties, one for each side of the streets warrants, and are connected via a two story high arch to exchange their information and to frame the view of the pedestrians in the street.
For our glorious Empereur even the best things are just good enough and even in terms of art this saying is a valid statement. One of the best portraitists, Hylia Beilschmidt, serves the imperial court. Originally, she is from Lehritz in Suedmark in the former country of Polsika. Based on the partition of the lands between Prussien, Osterlitz and Rothenia the resistance of the locals against the foreign forces often ends in riots in the cities. Regarding to this dangerous environment Hylia planned to leave her homeland and move to the court of one of Esradons countries for whom she often worked. Many royal families and even the castairien imperialty wanted to host her with pleasure right by their side. Back then the imperial warrant district was just finished and His Imperial Majesty offered her not just a place at his court but also a property directly at the street where she could build a house after her visions on the Empereurs cost. Flattered by this generous offer she moved to Castaire and now creates all portraits of the imperial family and many landscape paintings. The house she build is very unique and sticks out amongst the others in the street with its high rising thouroughfare, huge windows, the almost random shape and the central glass roof to create excellent lighting at the inner rooms.
  • Forgeron Ghyslan:
The Ghyslan family comprises some of the most talented weapon smiths in whole Castaire. In their new smithery their extended family and some employees create not just the personal weapons for the members of the imperial family but also the decorative armours and weapons for the interieur of the palace. They also sell some of their swords and other products to the local nobility and merchants. The second son of the smithmaster Bastien Ghyslan, Dominique Ghyslan, is recently seeing Emilia, the daughter of our Imperial Majesty without his approval nor even knowledge. Their green coloured house is even exterior-wise clearly divided between the rooms of the family and the working space and features a little marquee to sell products to the locals. The decoration of the houses mainly consists of many statues covered in armour made by them and other metal works. The rear facade is dominated by the huge chimneys for the furnaces.
  • Boulangerie Boulanger:
The name of the family is neither a coincidence nor a renaming of the family. The Boulangers run this business for at least twelve generations and were even in the past the imperial warrant at the court of Favorite. Their baking technique creates products of highest quality and so many different kinds of bread and other flour based products. Nearly every year their bakers create a new kind of bread to please their customers. Their house is a high rising complex with baking ovens at the rear facade, a ramp at the front and an inner lift to transport arriving wheat or flour some stories higher.
  • Tannerie et Couleurs Fargon:
This institution is quite unique within the family of imperial warrants as it produces not just end products ready for use but also serves as a supplier for other warrants in the district. They dye leather for Chauvin and silk for Perlint but even create leather products by their own such as saddles and any form of bags. The Fargons originate from the little villages Tannerierre and Couleaux in Gardelegen where the two families Varrieu and Fargon came together. With the marriage of Marie Varrieu and Gustave Fargon they united and became the dyeing and leather works dynasty we all know and love. The home and working place of the family is a light blue building with a remarkable tower at it’s left side which looms over the height of the gabel.
  • Cordonnier Chauvin:
Having a good step is always important, especially when you want to rule the world. Thus, Charles Chauvin founded his shoemaker store in his hometown Montbarrois and sold mainly boots for the local garrison regiments. Using refined leather and special procedures, his boots were highly durable and rumours of his talent made it to the ears of the imperial court. When Nathanaël II was in Montbarrois, he ordered a pair of riding boots from Chauvin, whose quality made him appointing Chauvin imperial warrant. After the construction of the warrant district started several decades later, he asked the court administration for a lot and moved with his family to the capital, becoming the personal shoemaker of the imperial family. While he is mainly known for his boots and low shoes, his personally favourite kind of shoes are those for females, low shoes with many decorative elements like ribbons, flowers etc. in all kinds of colours.
  • Triumphal Arch:
Concluding the street of the imperial warrants, the triumphal arch is located next to the tourist information and opens up the way to the lowered terraces with Sacre-Cœur de Lucrécy and the Place de Belle. Originally conceived as a monument to show off the victory over Cantoras between 1738 and 1742, it later became just an memorial arch for the many victims of that merely senseless war. Constructed of white marble, it resembles the style of the cathedral just behind it and concludes the viewers panoramic vision.
Left Side:
  • Jardinage Fleury:
The building of the Fleury family concludes the street and is the first building at the left side. Featuring a large glassy pavillon at its mainfront, it features several high windows to show off the floral beauty of the produced arrangements. The light rose colour of the house fits very well to its overall architectural grandeur, mainly showed off by two 4 story high spire towers at the park facade. The Fleury family is responsible for the imperial gardens and conceives their brodery patches and other fleural arrangements throughout the gardens.
  • Vinerie Vêndome:
Importing their grapes mainly from Keravel and Cherbeaux, the Vêndome family is best known for their most delicious wines, supplying the high nobility of Castaire with excellent products. To show off their trades, the main facade of their home is covered with vines. The tower houses several wine presses to be able to produce more wine. The wine cellar has entries both at the front and at the rear side to provide maneuvering space for the carriages transporting the wine barrels.
  • Soie et Broderie Perlint:
The Perlint family is one of the newest members of the imperial warrants, as they came to wealth just two years ago by planting mulberry trees to houses silk worms. Thus, the offensively expensive import of “raw” silk was not needed anymore and they were able to boost their income this way. As their products also feature an incredible quality, Belle made them imperial warrants. Representing their new status, the house is compared to the other homes, lowered by one story, but features all important weaving devices.
  • Confiserie Rantaillon:
Everyone loves cake! At least none of the Castairien nobility said “Let them have cake” in case of a famine, but sweet confectionery is super popular amongst every stratum of society. As the Rantaillon family produces tons of sweet cakes, muffins etc., they are able to sell them for a low price, allowing poorer inhabitants of Lucrécy to also afford some cake a week. Being confectioners, they designed their home to look like a giant, overly decorated cake with many white elements.
  • Vêtements Visont:
The Visont family, consisting of Håkon and Olivie, works closely together with the Perlint family, as they provide the raw material for their products, fine dresses, suits, justaucorps and gowns. Manufacturing nearly all the dresses of the imperial garderobe, the Visont family is by far the richest of the imperial warrant families. The main facade of their house features large windows to show off their newest creations, while the upper stories are occupied by weaving looms and fabric storages.
  • Orfèvre l’Estrion:
There can’t be too much golden decoration in an imperial palace! Following that credo, the l’Estrion family made an extraordinary fortune from the aspirations of the nobility to surpass each other by the amount of precious interieur. Featuring several melting furnaces at the rear side, l’Estrion is able to directly produce all his goods locally. Nearly all of the interieur items of Palais Castaire were conceived and produced by l’Estrion.
  • Charronnerie Escarbleu:
Transportation was quite important in times where cities weren’t interconnected by railways. Carriages were the only alternative, and for the nobility they offered a splendid way to show off their superiority in glamorous parades. Thus, there are several coach makers throughout Lucrécy with the Escarbleu family being one of the most prominent. Being undisputed experts at their craft, they became imperial warrant for supplying only the most splendid carriages to the imperial court. Their house features a large working area at the lowest story with a spacious yard for screwing together the individual parts of the carriages. They also work closely with their neighbour l’Estrion, who provides many of the decorative elements.
  • Parfumiere Thiebault:
“You took a bath? Why that? Were you out of perfume?” Such a sentence perfectly resembles the thoughts of many aristocrats during the 18th century. Not so much in Castaire, though perfume was also an important and especially prestigious good, as its production was quite expensive and time-consuming. Having an extensive collection of fine fragrances was kind of obligatory especially for young women. The Thiebault family perfected the manufacturing of perfumes and creates new fragrances nearly every day. Their house resembles their wealth and features several working rooms as well as a flower garden for the different scents.
  • Information des Touristes:
As the capital city of the worlds most ambitious empire, Lucrécy accommodates many tourists throughout the year, who want to visit the striving metropolis at the Violaine. The tourist information is the first focal point of the interested visitor, featuring many information regarding the history and conception of the city as well as several architectural highlights. Finishing the street of the imperial warrants, the tourist information has an interesting floor plan, consisting of its main building and an additional building for the archives.
