    Welcome to the Roaring 20s, provided by Coro the map scribe!

    Hello there guest. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!



    As always, we will also require 30 RP posts with a new nation for it to be placed on the map. This was a rule before and has now been reintroduced, to make sure that the workload of adding a new nation will be justified. As before, you can start roleplaying as if you were placed - in that sense, it’s not that different from how it has been in recent times for other reasons. If you do not find your nation on this map, there is a good chance that it might be due to this new rule. Continue playing and you will soon find yourself on the map! Also if any requests from the previous thread have been overlooked or wrongly interpreted, please post your requests once more in this thread.

    We will try to keep up a reasonable pace of at least monthly updates.

    Applying for a MAP SPOT (AFTER 30 RP POSTS) :-


    Location :-
    Name of Country :-
    Capital :-
    Location of Capital :-
    Additional Major Cities and Locations :-

    To protect the fairness of our game, please make all requests for alteration to the map publicly. The Mapmaker will not make changes based on IRC, PM, Skype or any other private or offsite conversations. We will not accept requests forwarded anywhere other than official public map threads.

    INACTIVITY & DISCLAIMER

    Role play activity will prevent deletion from the map, there is no minimum activity needed to prevent removal as it is due to Mapmaker discretion, though an announcement of departure in the Absence Thread will excuse a drop off of activity. Prior to removal, the inactive player will usually be placed on the Inactivity Listing, allowing new players to assume their map spot should the player not return to in-character activity. The Mapmaker & Administration can remove, edit, add, or deny changes to the map based on existing rules or past lessons learned - clarification on the reasoning of these exceptional decisions can and will be given upon reasonable inquiry.

    INACTIVITY LISTING

    Any and all nations on this listing can be removed and replaced by a new player upon request for a map spot :-

    A little correction: the small Friulian island city is Savalonut, not Savolonut

    Awesome! Bayonnes was supposed to be in mainland Justosia but not huge. Whenever you get around to it. Thanks!

    Awesome work!

    Few things from me:

    1) Please blank Kollam. As part of my Himyari expansion I'll be ditching any claim to Toyou

    2) Please also give Nobatia some of my pixels, perhaps the stuff around the Sea of Buto (the one shared with Pelasgia) and the giant lake shared with the Dune Sea (presumably that's the name of the lake?)

    3) Subject to consent from yourself/Nedernesie, could we also straighten out our borders to look more 'colonial'? I'm imagining that area geographically to be a scrappy Sahel-like terrain that was simply divided between an emerging Azraqi Empire and white colonising powers

    4) Could the cities of Ooga, Gelinsoor and Burokab be removed please

    5) Close to the lake towards my newfound West put al-Mukarramah and al-Munawwarah (Mecca and Medina respectively - copying the example set by Hajr)

    Danke

    As per Norse' request, could maybe this be the new border between Nobatia and Azraq?

    Great map, as always. Thanks for all the effort.

    Ah Gentlemen, I miss the 'like'-button! Much credit to both Xen and Coro for this work!

    @Touzen or Pohjanmaa">@Pohjanmaa : I have noticed Salen has been enlarged with the latest updates. Though I am flattered with the extra land being granted, may I ask to size it down a bit again? Could one of the following suggestions suffice, perhaps? Many, many thanks!

    1. Former map shape:

    2. New outline, somewhat fitting the current map:

    Sure... it happened as part of a map edit to include some island you asked for once upon a time but apparently accidentally also enlarged you in some oversight. I’ll gladly edit you to whichever suggestion you prefer.

    great work, but could you make Pillau the capital and put it somewhere in the centre of the BPR?
    thanks in advance.

    Thanks! If it doesn't resemble the Low Countries too much, you may adopt the new outline. =) Again, it really wouldn't bother me if my former shape is used, so if anyone from the community prefers that - no biggy.

    Being honest I more saw you just taking the bit around the lake like body than the whole coastline. I'd quite to have an obvious maritime border with Pelasgia.

    Norse, you will need to make a map, because your descriptions kinda confuse me. The lake as in the Lake Chamo I had with Natal (the inland lake between me and the Dune Sea) and then the extension being just the red bit, or the lake as in the Sea of Buto?

    And then the extension is green too?

    One little remark: I upgraded Bremen to a city of 3.1 million inhabitants.

    I see Calidia has disappeared. Does this have a reason, or was it just forgotten in the mass of things?

    Likely forgotten in the mass of things. What and where is a Calidia?

    I’ve been shown a map where it is located, and it will be included in the next update.
