Twinned with the city of White

Sough is a town located in the Empire of Aenopia. Located within the territory of Aenopian Calver, it has an area of 150m². It is twinned with nearby city White. It is the smaller of the two cities, and as such is often overlooked. It borders Aenopian Plushunia on one side.

Etymology

The name of Sough initially came from the name of the local village shop run by retail brand SPAR.[1] This name comes from the underground basin which collects water from several lead-mine soughs which runs through the village before running into the River Derwent.[2] Sough can also mean to make a long high or low sound while moving, particularly whilst referring to the wind or the sea however isn't used in this instance.[3] Other uses of the name Sough include a Hamlet located in Lancashire, England[4] and an underground channel for draining water out of a mine.[5]

History

Sough was annexed as part of Aenopian Calver on 23 July 2019 upon Emperor Logan I's visit to the area. It was decided to name the 2 cities after the local area, so Sough was named after the local crossroads with the same nickname. Plans have appeared numerous times to absorb the city into White to form one large city due to it's size, however have been thwarted due to the presence of Aenopian Plushunia which would divide the city.
