Proto and I have finished. :) I have a map on my home PC detailing the boundaries of each region, although I'll probably just upload some edited versions of these newer maps (my one is based on my pencil-sketched drawing, not Proto's spiffy one that I've linked).

Hope you like it.

There will be 23 regions of varied sizes.

That's a cool world you got there. I suppose each race will start in a different area?

That is very cool.

But 23 seems like a lot of regions, and if not enough people are int othis you'll only end up with 1-2 people per region and some empty, with no big cities. Depending upon how many people are interested you might want to shrink the number of regions to force people in making a couple of cities.

Mullet raises a good concern, but then again, we can try to be ambitious right and get a lot of folk involved?

Nice map, by the by.

Take care all.

I like it, but we won't use it as the main map because it's not very simple and you need things to be simple for base maps. :) But it's a good alternative map. =D I likes.

EDIT: Although if you think you can adjust the water so it doesn't vary so much...

And on the searoute (helpfully shown on the map) from Fiorenseo to Zhem is the unknown Vincentland, the potentionally hostile and reactionary nutcase Queendom of Elennanórë, and the probably benign Nation of Aura.

I love the map. :) That's awesome!

I just realised I forgot to place one of the original sea routes on my map up top - there should be one between Town Over Yonder and Aztopia. Just so y'no. :)

k, i will try to remeber :D

Nait
08-08-2004, 12:28 PM
I'm adding searoutes by conscience - ie. what I think are likely searoutes. There's no one in Town Over Yonder right now, so no one bothers to go there. <_< >_> I'll add searoutes as soon as Niko gets around to do something.

Yeah, I was just letting you know since my map didn't have it so it might have caused questions.

Nobody's going to be taking over anything - don't forget you don't own the entirity of your region anyway, unless you're all going to be happy to recognise each other's borders. pr00t and I are talking about how to expand your nations, so hopefully we'll have something for you soon. There's the possibility that you guys might organise your own national borders (as would normally happen in any real world). There's also the possibility that you'll be able to put a town in any location on the map that's closer to your towns than any other nation's towns. As for how you get new towns, I'm happy for suggestions (nothing complicated, please), although we might just end up "giving" them to people as we see fit. There's also the possibility of EoFF member = town, or activity = town, or something like that. Try to think of fair ideas rather than ideas that would advantage yourselves. :p

Nait
08-08-2004, 01:14 PM
Natural borders! :D Like in the real-world. How much land would a city control? Could you control the land between cities?

I'll make a map with "sphere of influence" borders, centered on the cities.

Something like THIS?

NEW BORDERS! Changed font size for ALL political names to smaller, in order to fit. Added Myst and New Canada, and tweaked the map in the light of new information.

Come to think of it, maybe the more citizens = more cities rule wasn't such a good idea after all. :mad:

Y'know what I'm gonna do? I'm going to change the names! Every single map from here on will read instead of "Super Shiny Land" and "Psychoticville" and "Monkey Town", it's going to read "Esdham", "Omran" and "Isdhirgadh". >:O

08-12-2004, 03:50 PM
Pfft, you'll never invade Zhem. Cause first you'd have to invade Serenity to get to Eisgaea, the Neifelheim to get inside Eisgae (or alternatively Aztopia - I don't think anyone would conquer Desierto), then you must get all the way, through the mountains and Elennanóre and New Canada to the southern shores, and from there you must invade Aura, and THEN you could, possibly, try to invade Zhem.

Hi.

I don't really know if I should make a post about this or not, but Fiorenso has an additional city on it's largest island. The island in question is now called Tuillevaem, and the port city Ava'lone. I think Neel posted a version of Fiorenso's modified map in the Fiorenso thread, so uhh... just a heads up about that to the mapmakers :)

08-27-2004, 06:54 AM
And the port city on the mainland is called Kazetana.
