Totem Beach is a bustling city on the shores of Avenir Bay, in Epsilon, Ward 6. It is the largest city in the immediate area, and serves as the main economic hub and general way-point for the far Southwest. Due to its unique climate, accessibility, and low corporate taxes, it is a very popular area for economic activity, and fast becoming a hub for various road, rail, and air infrastructure, due to its prime geographic location between the major hubs of Gamma, and the fast-developing regions of outer Epsilon.


A Fresh Start

Crimsonf0x (then known as Foxwolf11), had been becoming increasingly unsatisfied with his first town, Gryffin, located on the MRT Valley Line. Gryffin had suffered from poor long-term planning, and because of such was becoming difficult to rank up. Alongside this, Foxwolf had also seen the other grand cities of the MRT, and felt hopeless that he had nothing to build up and compare them to. This reached a breaking point when he kept building up the exterior shells of buildings and just never doing anything with them. Finally, when Foxwolf was building an amphitheater that wasn't undergoing any significant progress, he flew up and left Gryffin, never to build there again.

Originally, Foxwolf flew west, hoping to claim a plot of land on the Savannah line for his metropolis that would be master-planned all the way to Premier, but he soon discovered that there was no good area that had not yet been claimed by another member. Unsatisfied with the selection, and having passed a beautiful bay on his way, he flew to that, and thus Totem Beach was founded.

Early Beginnings

April 1, 2019 - April 30, 2019
On that same night, Foxwolf was eager and had high motivation to build. The first build in Totem Beach was a section of road that is now the wide boulevard known as Boardwalk. At this time, work on the city was sporadic and slow. Among the first buildings are a condo building overlooking the waterfront, a recreation store, and Foxwolf's house, the Mayoral Mansion.

After many unsuccessful bids for Councillor, Foxwolf decided that he needed a project he could put his name on and could feel pride in. Thus, many of the beach piers were demolished, and a grass waterfront was created. After 3 lengthy hours of terraforming and landscaping, the waterfront was finally complete. Shortly after, Totem Beach was approved for Councillor by Tom_Pairs and hvt2011

Mayoral Quest

May 1, 2019 - June 15, 2019

After he achieved the first rank for Totem Beach, Foxwolf11 set to work, aiming to aim the basic infrastructure and roads of Totem Beach, most notably finishing a waterfront project that contains a new hiking trail. A new marina center will be established north of the waterfront. After these improvements were put into action, he constructed a new tall building, the Totem Beach Library of Records. He made many road and infrastructure improvements, as well as constructing many buildings to the South, including the Courthouse, Justice Center and Unity Tower. Also at this time was the founding of the Vulpine Republic on May 30, a merge of Fiorkistan and the Vulpine Republic.

Finally, on June 15 of 2019, Totem Beach was promoted to Mayor, by HeavenAngel and godzilltrain.



The climate in Totem Beach is very interesting and unique. In the summer, temperatures can reach as high as 40C due to the surrounding desert to the west. However, the temperature can drop to low temperatures of 15C-20C due to the cold ocean to the east, and the wind from the extensive snow biome across the Estival Sea. In the colder months, the temperature is typically 15-20C during the day, and 5C-15C during the night. Totem Beach is not susceptible to hurricanes and typhoons, as it does not get rainfall often, and the near ocean is cold. However, in the summer, it can get brief, torrential rains when flash floods are to be expected.

Totem Beach has a political system that consists of a mayor, a deputy mayor and three councillors. The councillors represent three districts of Totem Beach, and operate out of City Hall (50 Civic St).

In addition, Totem Beach is one of two cities currently in the Vulpine Republic, a state controlled by Foxwolf11. It maintains neutral in disputes not involved with it or its allies.


Generally, architecture in Totem Beach is with a modern theme, with high use of skylights and windows to save energy. It has some exceptions to this theme, for thematic reasons. It has moderately strict building guidelines and zoning restrictions (especially for large buildings), but not very strict like Evella.


The following people have homes in Totem Beach:

ArizTrad, 151 1 Av, Apt. 600, Downtown
willowars, 151 1 Av, Apt. 602, Downtown
FiorkG, 151 1 Av, Apt. 604, Downtown

DaEdwards, 151 1 Av, Apt. 500, Downtown

Hvt's Arcade (hvt2011), 3 Stratford Alley, Downtown
Dough & Batter Bakery (ArizTrad), 101 Stratford Alley, Downtown

Totem Beach is divided into a number of districts to improve the quality of the town. These districts are zoned into different zones to control what will go in that space. The mayor decided to take a more strict zoning stance after what had happened with Gryffin.


The first district of Totem Beach, Downtown is planned to be the central hub for tourism and economics. With relatively compact, vertical builds it will be small in footprint. It will be divided into two districts, Boardwalk and Financial.


Boardwalk is the first subdistrict of Totem Beach. It is centered around Bayside Blvd, and is a hub for tourism and relaxation. The Waterfront Park is the main attraction in this area, as well as City Hall and other government facilities.

Financial District

This district will be up the hill from Boardwalk. It will consist of mainly tall skyscrapers, but a few other builds are planned. It will be accessible to the streetcar line being planned. It will contain the HQs for many VCORP franchises, as well as a central station.


Totem Beach highly encourages tourism, and we welcome tourists from everywhere. We have some regulations on tourism, though, and tourists are required to abide by City Rules, the rules of the Democratic Republic of Vulpine, and server-wide MRT rules.

Getting There

As of 05/06/2019 there is no good way to reach Totem Beach. However the best way is as follows:

from Valence
1. Head to the Valence Marina
2. Take the Avenir Boat Lines LINE 1 Express to Totem Beach.

Totem Beach is not really well connected to other cities yet, as it is a small, new town in a developing area, but the Totem Beach City Government is working on ways to improve this. A heliport to Central City will be built, and the town is planned to build south towards  D44  Totem Beach Plaza Station. Also, (assuming the UCar plugin will be re-established) a road will be built to connect Totem Beach to Deadbush, Heampstead, and the Contiguous MRT Highway System. Please bear with us as we work to establish these means.

Guide/Where to Visit

These following places are Totem Beach destinations.


As mentioned in the past text, the waterfront is one of the main centerpieces of Totem Beach. It boasts a tennis court, a relaxing beach, a tropical fish pond, and many places for residents and tourists to relax. 100 Bayside Blvd

Beacon Lighthouse

This tall, coastal beauty was built to guide ships into the Totem Beach harbor. It no longer really serves that purpose, as technology gives these boats other ways to navigate, but still boasts a great view of the coast and a fun place to elytra off of. See if you can elytra to the east and see if you can reach the shore to the east!!! 220 Bayside Blvd
