Title: Mapping Your State Part II - New Players Please Read
Post by: The Commonwealth of Rhodesia on June 18, 2008, 09:40:32 AM
(This is a continuation of the "Mapping Your State - For New Players (http://www.nationstatesafrica.com/forums/index.php?topic=2160.0)" topic.)

All new players wishing to request land should post here. The procedure for mapping is as follows:

1. Find the unoccupied piece of land you want from the latest map. The latest map is usually found on the last page of this thread. If it isn't there keep going back in the thread until you find a post from the cartographer (myself) with a map, which should be an Imageshack thumbnail.

2. Find the province numbers for the territory you wish to occupy using the "Provinces of Africa" maps here. (http://www.nationstatesafrica.com/maps_files/Page295.htm) Please post the subregion and the province numbers in the thread.

3. If approved, you will be mapped in the next map update. It may not be the same day you apply, so please be patient. I try to do a new map as often as possible, usually once a week when necessary.

Existing players wishing to have territory added to their nation should also post in this thread. You will be required to post the province numbers and a short description of how you have obtained the territory.

Finally, you must provide me with both the subregion and the province numbers you wish to be mapped to. I've put the link to the page in this post, so no excuses. If you don't provide the numbers you will not be mapped.

4. You may not claim more than 5 provinces to begin with.

Addition:

I check the IP's of everybody applying to be a new state. If you are attempting to multistate I will contact an Admin and ask for their approval before mapping you.

On that subject, if anybody new absolutely has to have the Czech Republic, send me a PM and it's yours.

If you are inactive for two months you will be unmapped if you do not make an effort at IC posts within that time or talk to me about reserving your spot. I make an effort to contact people who have left about one month before their deadline, so you will have plenty of warning.

You will be unmapped after:


You attempts to contact you will be made if your deadline is approaching.

Effective immediately the nations of Malawi and Kazakhstan are available to any new player who wishes to embark on a unique roleplaying adventure!

I am also offering the NSAfrica accounts of "Malawi" and "Kazakhstan" and give permission to pick up my story lines and write the next chapters of Presidents Bingu wa Mutharika and Borat Sagdiev, respectively. Both are eccentric characters and, no doubt, have a lot of potential in them!

If interested, please send me a private message.

Can I be allowed to RP as Kazakhstan? I have some ideas for the nations future.

Well, seeing as all of those territories are currently occupied by nations that don't look kindly upon Germany at this point I don't think you can just "take" them. Even if they were unoccupied you would have to RP an invasion and occupation of them before requesting any sort of territorial additions. Of course, that would probably be opposed by most everybody and the AU would be dispatched to stop your invasion.

So I'd hold back on printing the "Wilkommen in Danzig," signs.

Also, you know who else wanted to reunite the German Empire? That's right...


Title: Re: Mapping Your State Part II - New Players Please Read
Post by: germany on June 19, 2008, 01:52:29 PM
Yes... I see your point... But, what I mean is if the countries leave (like one of the coutnries quit) could I have the territory through process of the AU? Just wondering if it was possible.

I know that this may seem minor, but there is a small island off the coast of Croatia, which is part of Praugsia. The island is part of Croatia, so technically it is part of Praugsia. Could it please be colored as Praugsian territory on the next map update? Also, Praugsia is spelled wrong on the map. I dont really mind if you mispell it, but I just thought you should know. Thanks.

Hi, I just joined this region!

How many provinces can a new nation have?  And is it a problem if a country straddles the sub-regions?  If possible, I would like to request the following provinces in the Central Sub-Region: 59-Trabzon, 60-Gaziantep, and 61-Van; as well as the following provinces in the North Sub-Region: 213-Georgia, 214-Armenia, and 215-Azerbaijan.

Additionally, I had a question about province 60-Gaziantep.  I can't make this out clearly on the map, but is the Hatay province of modern real life Turkey part of province 60 or one of the neighboring provinces?

Also, are there any others steps for new players?  Are there threads I should read to familiarize myself with the forum?  And is there a history for the regions that I should take into account when outlining my nation's history?  Thanks for all the help!

I am sure our cartographer will tell you when your nation is mapped.

As an answer to your other questions, there's an OOC (Out of Character) part on this forum, it's at the bottom of the index page. There you will find "The Rulebook". There you'll find tips on how to RP and certain rules that you have to keep in mind. In case you still have some questions, don't hesitate to contact me or any of the other admins. ;)

South Sub Region:

21
22
43
44
45
46

West Sub Region:

Cabinda is that little slice of Angola in between KweKwe and Warlordia (between the Rep of the Congo and the Dem. Rep. of the Congo IRL) You could play as a government in exile or something. Or just do as I was going to, turn it into a crazy little dictatorship and go absolutely insane with what you do to your people.

It doesn't REALLY matter, I'm just curious.

You can please cancel my request to be added to the map.  For various reasons, I won't have time to RP here regularly, so no point in my taking up space. ;)  Sorry for any trouble I may have caused.  Thanks.

It's no problem at all as I haven't finished the map yet.  :-o

I also applaud your candor and honesty in assessing your time commitments. I really appreciate the fact that you're not one of the people who gets mapped then leaves. Thank you and I hope that when you do find time that you come back to NS Africa.

I'm terribly sorry but I seem to have made a mistake. 114 and 115 are currently occupied by Ostrogothia. However if he does not make an IC post within one week then the provinces will be mapped to you.

Normally you need to have the approval of an admin before you can move your nation somewhere else (especially when it's not the first time you're doing it), so you're nation will not be mapped until I have discussed this with the rest of the admin staff.

Administrator: He expanded the territory on his own, Mitchell.  It's a new player taking over the old Alsace, as far as I'm concerned this is perfectly eligible without RP.  Plus, Alsace isn't a member of the AU, so they aren't required to submit a resolution.

Hi there,

I'm relatively new to the African forums, but a Middle East veteran. I took my bivouac to Africa and I intend to stay. Mostly because of the roleplaying adagio here. Nationstates can be a barren wasteland for those who seek realistic and intricate roleplay.

Anyway, I am here to ask for the territory the Empire will hopefully once occupy. Currently, most of the territory is taken, so I will -if such is possible- reserve lands and roleplay them as soon as they can actually be ceded. I see Patrua as a former colonial power which still holds some leftovers. The provinces would be the following:

North Subregion:
104 Vary
105 Prague
106 Brno
107 Bratislava
108 Kosice
109 Vienna (taken)
110 Linz
111 Graz
112 Innsbruck
113 Liechtenstein
144 Slovenia
145 Pecs
146 Budapest
147 Debrecen

South Subregion:
53 Cabinda

Central Subregion:
14 Djibouti

Additional lands (as I understand that the map will be expanded to encompass the entire globe):
Grenada (Carribean)
East and West New Britain and New Ireland Provinces (Asia-Papua)
Dalian Province (Asia-China)
Kerguelen (Antarctic Indian Ocean)

I hope that these claims will be available some time soon.
Much gratitude and sympathy.

Sincerely,

Patrua

Rest assured, I have no desire to take your lands from. I'm just saying that if they should become available in the future, I'd like to reserve them.

Post by: Republika Orla Polski on July 27, 2008, 06:49:19 AM
Admin comment: Patrua, if you'd like to start RP'ing, then please check the latest update of the map and request for land that is not occupied at the moment. I don't think that any of the nations owning those provinces are currently willing to give it up to you, otherwise they probably would have told you already. Once the territory becomes available, you can claim the land through a resolution in the African Union or by conquest.

I would also like to point out that we do not reserve land for players. For example, if I'd want to attach the province of Minsk to my nation, but a new player comes along and requests it before I RP'ed the occupation, then the land is for the new player. (this is a fictional example, because I know Russia owns Minsk ;) )

Last but not least, it is correct that there are plans to extend the map even more, but those are not for the near future. Right now we have enough land available for new players, so there is no need for extension.

These are the territories of the new Spanish State which you can just label as "República Espańola" in order to conserve space.  "Espańa" if you really want to cut down on space.  This of course is a second nation, that I originally requested but was asked to wait until post July 26th, to ask for.  As far as I've noticed, Hoobeebia hasn't returned, if he has, then please alert me and I withdraw this claim.

If you guys (admins) don't want me RP'ing a large nation like this just PM me.

Quick comment on when you make the map the whole world, make USA a non-controlable country. It has too much military power to be controled by a new player. But, if a vetern wants to control it, it would make sense.

Alright, I'm new to NS roleplaying and everything so I pretty much have no idea what I'm doing. My country claims the following regions, anyhoo.

156 Crimea

157 Dnipropetrovsk

158 Kharkiv

159 Kiev

160 Vinnytsya

161 Lviv

To my limited knowledge these are all unoccupied. Just tell me if I did something wrong. Thanks in advance!

156 to 159 are actually occupied after a war against the previous occupants. They havent just been mapped yet. Russia have been rooting out Stalinists and what now remains are a Trotskitst stronghold.

Post by: Patrua on August 25, 2008, 05:19:05 AM
Admin comment: Patrua, if you'd like to start RP'ing, then please check the latest update of the map and request for land that is not occupied at the moment. I don't think that any of the nations owning those provinces are currently willing to give it up to you, otherwise they probably would have told you already. Once the territory becomes available, you can claim the land through a resolution in the African Union or by conquest.

Sorry for replying this late. I was on an excavation campaign and did not have easy access to internet facilities.
My thanks for your reply. I understand that the nations currently in possession of these areas are not willing to give them up. That was never my intention either. I mistakingly thought the possibility would exist to reserve them.

I would also like to point out that we do not reserve land for players. For example, if I'd want to attach the province of Minsk to my nation, but a new player comes along and requests it before I RP'ed the occupation, then the land is for the new player. (this is a fictional example, because I know Russia owns Minsk ;) ).

Evidently, my assumption was wrong. Since my nation has been tailored to fit the territories I mentioned (art work and such for the website under construction), I will wait and/or canvas other regions for possible residence, even though I would prefer Africa because of its high standard in role-playing.

Last but not least, it is correct that there are plans to extend the map even more, but those are not for the near future. Right now we have enough land available for new players, so there is no need for extension.

Again, this was under the assumption that one could reserve territories to be put on the extended map. Part of it was also informative, to declare the extent of the territories still belonging to the realm but not featured on the Africa map. But I stand corrected and as mentioned earlier: I will wait for the territories to be available before repeating my request.

Well hey there! I see you have your eye on Iraq and Iran! Guess who has troops stationed there in a long term occupation struggling to set up new governments in both of those nations? All the while desperately wanting the expensive war to be over so as to better deal with issues on the home front? AND was in the middle of a controversial take over of these territories, but would rather let them be independent? Yep, ME! So if you are still interested, send me a PM and we can work out an rp of how you will come to power. See the thread "Generation Kill" in the Broadway Theatre for the latest info on the occupation.

OH, btw, not all of Iraq is occupied by me, some Kurdistan and such is ruled by the UFS. (though that may change according to a recent post by him in the absence thread)

You can have a rebel group in Northern Iraq if you want. UFS has a mostly Jewish government (watered down version of RL Israel) so you can be a radical islamic group. The Israeli and Syrian states are mostly Jewish and my other States' religions are like those in RL. PM me as well.

Remember, exeeptions to the activity rules do apply, but if you don't explain things, well, I might can work in Photoshop some, but I'm not psychic, if I was I'd have won the lottery by now and brought my own island somewhere far off and made my own nation in real life there. So ask via the absence thread or if it's something you just aren't comfortable announcing to the whole board, feel free to PM me, please me, seriously, all the Admins, the rest of the GSB, they all have lives, and I'm the one with the map, so don't bother them unless you really, really have to.

Without further ado:

Latest Map (http://i33.tinypic.com/2yyqi34.jpg)

*Cartographer's note: Yea, I know the map says last updated August 30, I'll fix that next time. It was last updated 04 September 2008. FYI.
Trieste is part of Praugsia. Please mark it. (Province number 120.)

Isn't it maybe a better idea to start with a smaller territory and to try to conquer the rest of the land, like the Romans did? That could be a good RP with some of the European nations.

Post by: Republika Orla Polski on October 02, 2008, 01:27:34 AM
As an admin I'd say "Take Hiiraan's advice" to start small and RP your way to the big nation you want. That is also what Russia is doing. He started quite small and now he's got one of the bigger nations in the Northern subregion. Of course, when you do that and a new player comes along claiming some of the land you want, then there's no garantuee you'll get it, since we give new players first choice. Still, I'm not going to use my authority here, since the mapping of the states is the job of the cartographer and he'll tell you whether or not your nation will be mapped.

I offer official greetings to the world and global leaders alike.

I am the High and Honourable King James, and rightfully requesting the lands of the United Kingdom to be mapped as My Territory as it is marked as clear for the taking by new players.  I say rightfully not to be snobbish that my Anglo cousins are so fond of being, rather as it is my home and thy land I hail from.

Sincerely,


High King James,
United Kingdom.

If this gets mapped any way i want all of asia mapped to med since i just baught it for a shoestring for a hobo at the docks. (yes im sarcastic)

Dude quit your whining and grow up. Novaya Zemlya us not owned by any nation therefore it is not in dispute, if Russia wanted involvement they should have acted quicker. The way it stands now is this, no one has ever attempted to RP the province, or even farted in the general direction of it. Soooooo, tough luck. By the way, let a mod determine things, of which you are not.

The type of RP that is going on here does not allow room for dispute, simply because it is an internal purchase of debt by KweKwe. It is a peaceful annexation of a province. Unless Russia can think of a way to RP the elimination of debt by KweKwe, then it cannot be in dispute. And what Russia is saying is that because it is so close to Russia it should belong to Russia right? I'm sorry that is not how it works.

Okay, everybody calm down.

While the final decision is up to Mitch, I'd say that nobody can permanently claim the territory until they've established a presence there. You can make all the claims you want but they don't become official until you've got boots on the ground.

So the race is on I guess.  :wink:

In this instance, pulling a Dan, Russia would win, sheer size and proximity to the supply lines would cripple KweKwe's forces in the area. I believe KweKwe has the right to choose if they want to RP this but in all honesty, its a wise decision not to tempt Russia, a nation that has no political need to look good, and a much larger and more power nation than your prescence there can handle.

My intentions are not to engage in warfare over the land, hell it is just a frozen tundra. KweKwe's interest in the land is purely to create an Arctic resource for military training, add a unique resource to our economic capability and....well heck make for some interesting RP with an African nation becoming involved in such a location.

Of course Russia should be satisfied that KweKwe has no history of invasions or military aggression and we are willing to work out an agreement with them due to our close proximity.  However the rewards versus the cost of entering into warfare over the province would not be worth it and would kill any RP I wish to engage in; simply put I would RP KweKwe backing out of the purchase.

And to add to the true state of affairs, there is no KweKwe military presence as of yet. I plan to deploy the Arctic Fleet but this will be delayed due to the logistics of it all. Basically, all people of the province will be declared citizens of KweKwe and our presence will be a gradual increase. All for some unique role play!

In my defense I have participated in African Politics a great deal longer than you have. Back when I started playing the correct procedure was to make a land request from the AU. But I was granted the State of Albania without any formal land request. Therefore I assumed that the power to map states came from the Cartagrapher. This was my error for not checking with the rules first. However I am still new to this group of ns africa players and will have to get used to certain features. If you would be so kind as to at least indicate that this zone is being occupied by Peacekeepers.

Remaking the map

We really nead to remake the map since the discrepancies  now are beginning to get really big.

For instance compare the region East of Moscow (i was thinking of conquering those small provinces to secure moscow. 
http://i36.tinypic.com/zvakv4.jpg (http://i36.tinypic.com/zvakv4.jpg)

But when i look at the province map i see that half of the provinces dont exist.

http://www.nationstatesafrica.com/maps_files/Page295.htm (http://www.nationstatesafrica.com/maps_files/Page295.htm)

Further investigation reveals that caucasus is another such area.

My Suggestions is that we either change the Province map to reflect reality OR revert to the province map OR make a new blind map(a empty map) that have provinces that reflect the current "real" nations and start from there.

imagine that a soldier can march about 30-40 km a day(and thats a hard march), that makes 35x7=245 km in a week if you march all day, dont stop to fight and your soldiers have strong enough backs to march that far. With a full load of food, clothes, ammo, group equipment and personal equipment its really painfull to march that far. 40x4 is what you get medals for,and then you only carry 10 kg of gear.

You could still claim that area,but you'd have to rp it as a state developing during the Brithish occupation, I'd like that personally it'd add an interesting angle to my conflict with the UK in Iberia.

If you said that because real-life African nations have less influence and power...that doesn't apply here. Glashima is probably the most powerful nation in the game and they control Egypt, Libya, and Sudan. It just depends on how you RP.

#4: Perhaps you could play as a heavily colonized area in Africa, or just something with somewhat alternate history.
#5: We allow players to invade unoccupied territory because there's no reason not to. If we didn't it would get quite annoying and unrealistic. What if you'd told the Europeans in the 1800's that they couldn't form colonies around the world because no country owned the land. Yea, they'd of laughed at you.
#6: Iphapha, #29 in the SSR is part of Rhodesia. You'll have to contact him if you want to paly a rebel force in that area, or choose another area.

PS: I own Sudan, Kenya, Uganda, and part of the Middle East, Glashima owns Egypt, Lybia, Chad, and the Cape Verde Islands.

First of all Atlantic dude it isn't lame to allow nations to invade unclaimed territory, it's called realism! I in RL nations can invade so it's allowed here. It's also realistic that I'm under an oil embargo so my campaign in Spain will be a slow process. My nation only controlls Eastern Spain and the Baleric Islands, Central Spain and Western Spain are still out of my grasp at the moment,and even though I'm invading Spain I don't own the freaking map so if you wish to form a nation there I can't do a damn thing about it. It's realistic and I wouldn't have a problem with you claiming in Spain.

Claiming unoccupied lands is just part of RPing. If your nation wishes to expand that is part of the process for doing so. I claimed Kirov or Novaya Zemlya Province as I call it by RPing a purchase of the territory. It makes for interesting RP for an African nation having an Arctic type province. I however did not lay hold of this territory until I saw that no one has ever set sights on the land. None the less new players tend to come take land, get mapped and stop playing after a very short period of time.

I suggest we start work on a new and improved map that we can use for both regionnames and for filling in countries, yes some countries will change their shape a little but that is merly cosmetic.

I concur, where practical.

For example, where an annexation of a province is well under way and virtually already formally finished, I think it'd be impractical to just cut the province loose and dissapoint a player who's spent time and effort in RP'ing the annexation.

I would like to ask the MAP Mod to change the name of the United Islamic Republics to the Plaguelands.

I will be honest with you all. I have lost interest in playing your every day garden vareity nation and instead have allowed the UIR to become a Disease infested wasteland. I will still RP it as my "nation". The idea is have it so deadly that no one can go in or out, unless you are an immune, and the only way to find out is to try and enter the Plaguelands.

There will be survivors within the Plaguelands which i will be RPing, small collections of survivors who essentially have gone Mad Maxx but they too still carry the Reaper Virus so trying to pull one of them out with spread the infestation elsewhere.

I humbly ask you all to respect what I have done and RP with me if you are interested. If someone would like to join me, as a faction with the Plaguelands, I would be delighted. Just drop me a message and I will talk it over with you.

Weaver requests a country color of black.  The red clashes with my skin tone (I'm a summer-tone) and black is much more slimming.  The current red just makes my hips look enormous!

Thanks for understanding - I'll contact you again when the spring fashions come out to let you know what to change my color to then.  I'm thinking pastel plaids and stripes will be in again but we'll have to see what De La Renta comes up with.

Regards,
Weaver

I will see Lat's request through because there are now several green countries very close to each other in Europe. But I can't go around changing everybody's color. If I had the time to I'd be glad, but I don't. Also, I have been trying to avoid black as a map color. it is confusing and often blocks out the provincial borders. So I will have to deny Weaver's request for now.

With the blessing of the Plaguedlands, The Federation of Djiboutian States will reclaim the following Provinces on the map:


65-77 (Excluding 70 and 71 as they belong to Aksum)

This includes the entirety of Saudi Arabia, Oman, Kuwait, UAE, Bahrain, Qatar, Jordan, and a small portion of Iraq (1 province).


I lay no claim to the rest of the land that was under the banner of The Plaguelands/United Islamic Republics. I will say as a veteran that it is some primo real estate for a new player if it is decided to be freed up.

109-112 Northern Region (Austria) if you can. Byelorussia and I talked for a bit, hence why he seceded Innsbruck. And unmap the Kanin Kingdoms/map them for Russia/Various occupying forces. I decided to restart after Russia declared war and insisted on taking my only city of real size... I tried to hang onto Kanin Kingdoms for a bit, but it failed... Anyways, I was wondering if I could revive the former United States of Austria. It was my best RP (by far), and the only one that's open. I regret stopping it every day.

I agree with Neil on this. Statehopping is the "easy way out", but it's not a solution. Every nation will sooner or later be striken by a disaster and needs to find a way to turn the situation around. That's what a good RP is all about, finding those solutions and not necessarily the wars.

No they werent. I took Bosnia-Herzegovina and Vojvodina after TreLanka quit. I've never had them before. (Just look at the map, and you'll see that those two provinces clearly arn't mapped to me.) TreLanka posted a couple of weeks ago on his national news topic announcing the official breakup to the Outer TreLankan Republics. So, we acted and took his turf. Byzantium got Bulgaria and Albania, Byelorussia got Belgrade, Serbia (the province south of Belgrade, not the whole country), and Montenegro, and I got Bosnia-Herzegovina and Vojvodina.

I REALLY REALLY meant to give you Romania on that update. I'll do Kanin as occupied, and Of the Caucus, what of Azerbaijan, a province which Byzantine occupies, from what I understand, jointly with you?

And I am not understanding what you are saying about KK's south province.

Most Capable Cartographer - you rock, dude!

Here are the resulting map changes from recent elections and subsequent political treaties in 5 territories.  Please ask if you have questions and take whatever time you need.

All the province changes are in the Northern Sub-Region

18-Aragon is now UKNA
19-Catalonia is now Latin Union
20-Balearic Islands is now Latin Union
04-Valencia is now Latin Union
03-Murcia is now Weaver

With those five changes the entire Iberian Peninsula should have some color now.

Thanks again for taking care of the map!

The Kanin government is still operating, just with Russian influence. Oh yeah, and we're going into another civil war. Imperials (Pro-King) vs Democrats (Pro-President).

*wonders if Xibbie would be willing to RP a Revolution of some sorts for a piece of India which my nation kinda needs for RPing*

Oh well, I will see what happens

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...

Once again, I find my natural inclination to accomodate a new player at odds with both IC logic and OOC experience.

The simple truth is that I don't like RPing revolutions and/or successions for several reasons. First, I have difficulties seeing how I could OOC allow such a revolutionary movement to succeed without compromising my IC position. Xibeiguo is after all a ruthless totalitarian state ruling over a disparate group of territories that really have no business being together; hence, logic suggest that such a regime would be most unwilling to let any of its provinces go, since that might encourage other territories to break free- a process that ultimately would lead to the total collapse of the entire empire. For those of you who do not remember what happened to the last successionist movement on Xibei territory, let us just say that it ended in a live atmospheric test of gold-salted thermonuclear weapons.

This brings me on to a second point. In cases such as this, the revolution is a means to an end rather than an end in itself; in other words, the whole point is to launch a new nation and not to play out an interesting and open-ended storyline. And my experience is that such RPs are often, although not always, mediocre. The aforementioned Baluchistan insurgency I reluctantly agreed to is easily one of the worst storylines I have ever participated in, and not something I'm in a hurry to repeat.

Thirdly, and please don't take offence to any of this New Hyderabad, when I have donated land in the past (often sacrificing IC plausibility to meet the OOC needs of new players), the results have almost always been disappointing. Usually one of two things happens: either the player quickly goes inactive, leaving me to try to paper over another plot hole, or the player tries to grab even more of my territory, and when that fails,goes inactive anyway. Now I'm not saying that you would be like this, merely that this has happened to me many times in the past.

***

Right...now that I have pointed out all the problems, it's time to start thinking about what we are going to do to resolve it.  :-)

So...Hyderbad, could I ask you to hold on for a bit longer whilst I try to work out a solution?

Title: Re: Mapping Your State Part II - New Players Please Read
Post by: Eritrea on February 11, 2009, 04:16:35 PM
Okay...on the grounds that you have been polite and patient and I haven't been terribly active recently, I am going to give you the Dravidian-inhabited provinces of southern India, including the city of Hyderabad:

39. Karnataka
40. Kerala
44. Tamil Nadu
45. Andhra Pradesh


I'd appreciate it if you could allow me to make the first IC announcement (probabbly tomorrow morning as I'm tired now)...the way I intened to play it is that after difficulties with the Dravidian-speaking peoples (who have never fully integrated with the empire), Urumqi has decided to withdraw from the south. However it has also deported the Dravidian-speaking inhabitants of northern and central India, as well as the Tamil population of Sri Lanka, to your territories as part of its new policy of sponsoring a new 'Turko-Aryan' national identity. All this will of course be explained through a series of IC news posts. Then it's up to you...  :-)

On a more general note, this land donation is, and I stress this, ABSOLUTELY AND IRREVOCABLY THE LAST. That's it. The end. Finito. There will be no more RP gymnastics as I attempt to justify IC why my regime has whimsically allowed a large chunk of the territory it fought so hard to acquire to drift away...  :wink:

Free Hyderabad, please, please stay and continue roleplaying because every time Xibeiguo does this the person takes the land, then leaves.

Trust me I will stay, and hey my MSN is Ziggard@comcast.net, so if I go a bit inactive, u can mass IM me and bug me lol, that has worked at times when I forgot about something

Regardless of his promise, he has been inactive for over a month now while lacking a post in the Absence and Return thread.  It seems that Xibi was correct once again.... I wonder if we'll see more gold-salted thermos...  :wink:

Normally a link to the latest map and to the province numbers can be found in the first post of this forum, but I have been so busy that I couldn't keep the link to the map up to date. Maybe one of the other admins or one of the mods has.

Thanks for the link but looking at it I'm not sure I'd make a very accurate decision would it be okay if I made it up with reference to the stats worked out for some of the other provinces?  I'm planning for a moderatly industrialised nation (i.e. some manufactureing) but the majority to come from agriculture and resource gathering. I was thinking a population somewhere between 10 and 15 million, I'll set up a poll to ask for peoples input when I've come up with them.

um.... I noticed a mistake on the updated map, one of the areas accredited to my nation on the map isn't actually under my control, its the province that straddles the subregional border, the eastern part of the province has been given to me by mistake.

however I notice that its happend with provinces across the border elsewhere so I'm not sure what if anything you'd want to do about it.

OK, in east Europe, especially in the Ural region, some province numbers don't line up. They just don't correspond to the map and they don't look right when one looks at the north and east sub regions. Generally, the provinces along sub regional borders do actually have different province numbers for either side of the split provinces, so be careful when choosing. There is an update in the works to rectify this.

I should have clarified, I meant 3 days after I sent the messages. I have not sent any yet. I posted that very late when I did and yesterday was just one of those days. Babylon and Polski, you are both cool, I honestly did not remember when you said that Jess, I am really sorry. Good luck with those. The others on that list, you will receive notices today.

I'm sorry for being so harsh, but I got notified of being on the list for deletion by Dan only a few hours before my exam. I was stressed for that exam already, so it was just the final straw, you know.
I did however say, when I left, that I would be gone for quite a long time, because of personal issues and studies being really busy. At the moment I'm passing my final exams to get my Master's Degree and I'm busy trying to get all the paperwork in order to go to Russia next year for specialization. I also did tell Neal a few weeks ago that I would definitely return after my graduation. I know he's not that active anymore as well, but I'm just trying to say that there were people who really knew about this.

Russia supports a independent Estonia. And would support any attempt to take it over. That is i think it would be ok for a new player to take Estonia, NU is fairly large and could stand loosing one province.

11 June 2009 Map Update. (http://i43.tinypic.com/28sv5hl.jpg)

NOTES: About half of the nations notified have been removed. Either because I really don't think they're coming back or because they told me to go a head and remove them. The other half will be removed next time, but I just couldn't stand it, the ones still not removed are nations I very much enjoy rping with, an I hate to see them go so I decided to give them one more map update to confirm their status.

Jess, don't worry about it, that is a valid excuse, take all the time you need. Sorry if that came on a bad day, it is ok. I did not mean to stress you out. We would not want to loose the one known female we have on this site under any circumstances. Oh, and your rp is great too.

dvesperman, I went ahead and mapped you, as the NU had given Estonia to Russia (a fact that I had forgot), and russia had given you permission. So make us proud!

Okay, I've got a question for our cartographer.

Serandum has posted twice in the last week in an IC capacity, however had been inactive for approx 4months prior.  They were on the map for the June 8 update and gone by the June 11 update.  Therefore do we all proceed under the conclusion that nation is defunct and gone or simply unintentionally deleted from the map?

Since Serandum has posted in an IC context I must draw the conclusion that they are formally to be considered an active nation for the time being.

2.) Vojvodina and Bosnia-Herzegovina are listed as Praugsian. They really belong to Byzantium. Byzantium also has all of Byelorussian Serbia.

To sum it up, all of Hungary and Slovakia is for Praugsia. All of Serbia-Montenegro and Bosnia-Herzegovina belong to Byzantium. Thanks.

Good evening, gentlemen.

I would like to be placed in the Northern Sub-Region, if at all possible.
It should come as no surprise that I want Provinces 56, 57, 58, 59, 63, 64, 65, and 66, but I will settle for Province 56 (Iceland), if what I am asking is too much.

However, since the initial cap is 5 provinces, and if you wish to bestow on me 5 at first, I would talk 56, 65, 63, 64, and 66.

My capital would be in Reykjavik in Province 56.

Hey, does this mean I'll get all the extraneous territory that I requested?  The rules clearly state that 5 provinces per new nation is the law.  There may be no bylaw that requires them to be new to the group, too, though there also isn't a bylaw that says that old players are given seniority.

So, which is it?

Espada, I am eager to see what form of rp you have for those provinces, but just as a heads up, there is a lot of rp currently underway for the majority of those territories from weaver, myself, latin union, byzantium, and russia.  All in all, this should get very interesting  :evil:

So you wish to claim Sardinia and Sicily? I hope you're prepared for the stress of rping against the interest of my pan-latin nation, the Latin Union. Plus, you should change your language from Portugese to Sardinian, Sicilian, and Italian to portray the culture correctly.

OOC:

I was planning on RPing Espada as a Portuguese-speaking nation (or rather, speaking "Luso," a made up dialect of Portuguese). Would this cause any problems? I'd prefer to keep Espada this way, but if would cause major problems, we can rethink it.

Quite frankly, I have no intention of keeping the provinces completely true to their real world analogues, otherwise I'd just roleplay as Sardinia or Sicily or Algeria, etc.

And I think that'd be a shame.

Of course you can rp play your nation as you wish, it's just my preference to stay fairly true to my nation's cultures as my nation is meant to explore the many latin languages and sub-cultures that few people know about. It'd be hard to explain why Sardinians and Sicilians would speak a dialect of Portugese instead of trying to propagate their native tongues. And FYI the Latin Union wouldn't like the idea of fellow Latin races oppressing eachother's languages. I'm a history and language nerd sorry!  :lol:

OOC:

Certainly fair. I'm assuming, however, that the history of whatever provinces I get will be significantly different than in the real world, and of course, would include various linguistic minorities. Arabic, Italian, possibly French all included.

If that makes roleplay and external relations that much more complicated, well I'd say that's a good thing.

Feel free to PM me about Mediterranean politics, just to get me up-to-date. :)

Well well, Latin Union, the man/lady hasn't even started yet and you're telling him/her how to best fit into your area? This IS quite the event ISN'T it.

Well, my intentions are good. If it is infact realism we're seeking when rping, then one must be knowledgeable of the demographic and historical situations of the territories one desires to control. The reason I decided to claim France and Italy as my nation was because I already knew alot about the sub-cultures within France and Italy that are little known to the outside world and I still to this today study the Latin nations to maximize my rps. French isn't the only language France,Occitan, Catalan, Artipan, Euskara(Basque), Alsatian, and many other languages are spoken in modern times. In Italy Italian isn't alone there's also Tirolian German, Friulian, Neapolitian, Sardinian, Sicilian, Ladin, Venetian, Lombard and such!

Espada, it is great to have you. I am having a hard time justifying giving you all those provinces when I have forced several nations to only take five. True, it was never put to a vote, but as Cartographer I have some executive powers. If you could simply pick five that would be most helpful.

Other requests may start rping and Espada may start rping as soon as they only have five provinces selected. Aim to have a map update before the weekend.

We seriously need to put this 5-province thing to the vote sooner or later.

Confederate Republics, thanks for your help.

With that in mind, I'd prefer provinces 126 and 131 in the North, and 45, 46 and 47 in the West.

If this interferes with the peace talks between the European powers, I'd accept 126 in the North and 45, 46, 47 and 48 in the West, or 44, 45, 46, 47 and 48 in the West, though both of these scenarios are rather unsatisfactory.

The Republic of Royal Africa request territories 5, 6, 7, & 9  in the Central sub-region, as well as available  of territories 1,2,4 & 5 in the West sub-region.

That'd make your nation split in twain with a continent between the respective area.

Sounds very impractical...

 :-D

Perhaps this would be a better phrasing?

From the Exalted Desk of Supreme Raj Amitabh Bachchan, Ruler of the Commonwealth of Bollywood, Star Among Stars, King of All Entertainment, Hero of Past, Present and Future, Decent Dancer and All-Around Nice Guy:

The glorious paradise of the Bollywood Commonwealth has recently come to power in Bombay. The new government, led by the world's most compelling filmi stars has pledged to bring joy, passion, drama and delight to all. Our land is a veritable masala of sight and sound, and with our state-created religion, Mastibai, to guide us, we are certain to conquer the hearts of all with our unique blend of song-and-dance storytelling.

Accordingly, I, Amitabh Bachchan, Bollywood's Brightest Star and Supreme Raj, request provinces 35, 37, 38, 39 and 40 or the east sub-region and hereby appoint the nervously charming Akshaye Khanna as Prime Minister of the Commonwealth and Shahrukh Khan, Master of the Squiggly Eyebrow as Minister of State for External Affairs. To guide us in our quest for nirvana-rama, the attainment of enlightenment through repressed sexuality, I have chosen Grand Temptress Rani Mukherji to lead our religion, Mastibai.
