How does trading and traveling work?

I suggest something like this:

Between cities, where there are no barriers for trade (ie, entry and exit allowed), there will be natural roads, maybe by the soles of traders and travelers. (brown?)

Countries can, in fits of friendship, brethrenhood and good will, construct roads, la the Roman Empire. (grey?)

You can't build sea-routes (well, except for canals and stuff), so those will come to existence like dirt-roads, because the ships use those routes.

What do you say? :)

The borders of Atlantica are shut to all but those give special permission to enter :P

But your technological, societal and economical progress will be severely hindered by this. :confused:

You would think that but not the way I plan it :D

No outside innovation, no outside-raw materials, no outside influence... Face it, you're a xenophobic, anti-technological, conservative island kingdom doomed to live without many breakthroughs that will sweep the world othervise.

HURRICANE SEASON FOR THE UNITED NATION OF ATLANTICA


Hurricanes in a temperate climate?

Or maybe Atlantica is just warmer than Zhem (with our five out of 13 months of winter)?

See, that's what you get when you anger the gods for saying "I'm isolating my nation from everyone" or whatever you're planning to do. :P

I'd like to name this impending disaster 'Hurricane Alexandria' and wish the United Nations of Atlantica the best of luck creating a shelter capable of standing up to 100mph winds. :D

Seriously, isolation is not good.

I don't want war! I haven't really threatened you with force. I was just talking... Thinking aloud when I noticed that I could cut off all your trade and communication. <_<
