What is the oldest town in Illyriad? My first town was founded on july 8th 2010. It's exo'd but still exists. I'm sure there are older towns in the game. 

Is there a way to track how old captured towns are? I believe the date in your castle is the date it was captured, but the city is older. I'm curious what towns still exist from the first months of the game.

Stormont was founded 21 Feb 2010 at 22:08:02 but I think the oldest non-dev town is Taiphoon founded 22 Feb 2010 at 15:17:23

I looked at the datafile the devs make available for download each day. To give you an idea of the data in the towns file:

    <town>
        <location>
            <mapx>383</mapx>
            <mapy>-1815</mapy>
            <terraintype id="9">Clay Seam</terraintype>
            <terrainoveralltype id="4">Small Hill</terrainoveralltype>
        </location>
        <player>
            <playername id="1">GM Stormcrow</playername>
            <playerrace>Human</playerrace>
            <playeralliance>
                <alliancename id="18">Band of Devs</alliancename>
                <allianceticker>DEVS</allianceticker>
                <alliancetaxrate>0.01</alliancetaxrate>
            </playeralliance>
        </player>
        <towndata>
            <townname id="1">Stormont</townname>
            <foundeddatetime>2010-02-21T22:08:02.917</foundeddatetime>
            <population>14517</population>
            <iscapitalcity>1</iscapitalcity>
            <isalliancecapitalcity>1</isalliancecapitalcity>
        </towndata>
    </town>


That data is repeated for each town in Illy and the file is updated each day.

I was just looking at the oldest players the other day. 
Kumo is player id number 10.  I never heard of the people before him except the devs are the first few.

The city ID is updated when it is captured, so you can only track history of cities continuously owned by the same player.

I suppose there is no way to tell the age of a captured town then?
