Robinson Capital City?
« on: 07 October 2022, 15:29:00 »
What is the Robinson capital city?

Several big sources like Objectives: Federated Suns, Field Manual: 3145, and Shattered Fortress list it as "Beuller." But other sources, including the most recent source touching on Robinson, Recognition Guide vol 6, use "Bueller."  Then there was "Robinson City" in Be Not Afraid of Greatness and Historical: War of 3039 which ordinarily would indicate a capital city.

It's Bueller. 

General rule of thumb is that the most recent source is the current canon.  (That's why we have Kaznejoy instead of Kaznejov.)

Bueller matches the traditional spelling of that name, in any event (as seen in Ferris Bueller's Day Off).
"We have made of New Avalon a towering funeral pyre and wiped the Davion scourge from the universe.  Tikonov, Chesterton and Andurien are ours once more, and the cheers of the Capellan people nearly drown out the gnashing of our foes' teeth as they throw down their weapons in despair.  Now I am made First Lord of the Star League, and all shall bow down to me and pay homa...oooooo! Shiny thing!" - Maximillian Liao, "My Triumph", audio dictation, 3030.  Unpublished.

Thank you. Is Robinson City separate and distinct from Bueller?

The geography of Robinson has not been defined to date, but Robinson City definitely appears to be a distinct location from Bueller.  Note that Patriots and Tyrants show Bueller as the site of the House of Lords and the Ducal Hall, as well as the site of the Robinson Battle Academy. 

The Pal Sandoval Chronicles show Granite Falls as the site of "Castle Sandoval"

Robinson City is never described as a capital - just that it's the site of a spaceport, and near some mountains.
