Mapping Your State: Like an Adriatic
« on: June 07, 2016, 06:25:28 PM »
 

Map Current as of: 12 July 16

http://oi68.tinypic.com/1ywaqw.jpg

Establishing a Nation State (Country)

A player is limited to a starting country roughly the size of Ireland. Exceptions may be given if your territory covers large areas of unpopulated territory such as deserts or tundra, or you are wanting to RP a real world country or historic power. Posting in-character (IC) for your country can begin immediately after being approved for territory but a Country Factbook must be posted within two weeks of your territory approval. To note, you can request RL countries, such as Austria or Belgium and the AS will map the appropriate provinces (see my country of Adriatic Republic. I “requested” the RL of Croatia and Slovenia). Expanding your territory happens through roleplaying your country in the forums.

What about those empty provinces? How are those treated? Generally, players should treat empty provinces as sovereign countries and neutral in world affairs. For RP and storytelling purposes, you can treat specific provinces as needed for your needs.

Mapping the World

The map has historically been maintained by a single person. If this person goes inactive, some else starts from scratch. Single-point-of-failure mapping is no more. The entire AS (at least 3 people) will be able to edit the map. It will be Microsoft Paint friendly so edits can be made quickly and posted in a timely manner. The new map will also use RL province boundaries so that players can easily identify what cities, etc., are included in a country (with a bit of research in the case of smaller RL countries).

I would like to request Albania and, if possible, the Epirus and the Ionian islands regions of Greece. I'll mark the latter two later when I can get on my computer if necessary.

On second thought, no. Could I swap the Ionian islands for the Polog, Southwestern and Pelagonia provinces of Macedonia instead

While i am confused about being in "Africa" but with maps of Europe, Giubero-Scebeli wishes to claim Ethiopia and Somalia as "territories"; if it is forbidden to obtain such claims, we'll request the sole territory of Somalia.

Thanks

Just a note, it seems you forget to add the Epirus region to my country as well. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epirus_(region)#/media/File:Ipiros_in_Greece.svg)

I due to popular demand, I'm going to expand the map to include all of Africa. I included Europe be case it has historically be the most popular area for new players.

Looks like things are finally coming back to life here, so I'm exciting to start RPing again.

So I'd like to request the territories of Western Ukraine (Chernivtsi Oblast, Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast, Khmelnytskyi Oblast, Lviv Oblast, Rivne Oblast, Ternopil Oblast, Volyn Oblast, and Zakarpattia Oblast) for the Republic of Galicia–Volhynia

(Formerly Finland and KaNgwane, and now looking for a new challenge!)

Hej everyone I would like to request the area of South Africa. Also as a little extra request I would like to have Lesotho and Swaziland so I don't look like a swiss cheese. Thanks

Updated.

...let me know if I mapped you correctly.

Just a quick note, you missed out Zakarpattia Oblast. It's the  province directly south-west of my country, above Romania and to the left of Slovakia.

Thanks for all that you've done so far!
