What should the feel of this map game be?

1400's Europe (Lots of tiny states and feudalism and random stuff)
1600's Europe (Yay technology we're sailing across the sea to colonise foreign lands)
1800's Europe (Industrial revolution!)
1900's Europe (There's over there! Let's find a camel!)

Realm Map Game 2
« on: April 12, 2015, 08:13:28 PM »
This is a map game about constructing a fictional (Universalis?) realm thingy. Not sure exactly what it is but we were all excited about it on the IRC. 1900's tech or so.



Haezhen (obviously not Aeridani, no way this isn't the same nation just a different name) is somewhere in the ballpark of England/Ireland size-wise, with the center island being able to give Jutland a run for its money. Climatically, it somewhat resembles the western French coast, and geographically it tends to be quite flat but with rapidly rising hills along the southern and north-eastern border.

It is composed of 12 districts and a capital district, highlighted in darker red. The nation is divided into three parts: The southern part, island part and northern part. These three parts are all separated by a (great strait? river? I dunno, whoever puts a nation south of Haezhen gets to decide. maybe an amazony river?).

Haezhen has no current political allies, enemies or neighbors as they do not exist yet.

a continent

and I have no idea about image size and frankly that shouldn't matter, but probably it will end up being at least twice its current size or maybe more - however much space we need to fit all the countries we want

Malland Princedom, resembles the British Peak District, getting more rough further to the north.
The country has 5 ceremonial counties, which contain several lower district and township titles. The capital province is deep purple.

this is supposed to be 1900 not 2030; biology isn't nearly at all advanced as it is today and molecular biology probably isn't even a thing yet

The La˙casript Commonwealth is composed of two semi-autonomous states, Lau and Casript. Each of those constituent states are further divided into counties. It is ruled by an elected president via a system of representative democracy, and experiences a moderate level of corruption.

Lau mainly lies along the flat Ihaulkt basin, however its eastern portion experiences steep rises in elevation corresponding to the Vaus mountain range. Casript is totally encompassed by the highlands adjacent to the Vaus mountain range and relies heavily on the Agede river along its southern border in order to export goods.

The La˙casript Commonwealth's current presidency and elected senate are both dominated by revanchist political parties who seek one day to reclaim the coastal state of Verderenz they lost to Haezhen during the War of Three Towers. For this reason, they actively seek to align themselves to Haezhen's rivals and maintain good relations with their culturally similar relatives in Malland.

Jesvean - The Jesvean Dominion

A mystical kingdom located south of Haezhen. Although undoubtedly they maintain friendly relations with its neighbors, its true intentions are unknown and efforts of foreigners attempting to penetrate deeper into the kingdom have failed, with either disappearance or ordered to turn back. The king has never been seen before in public ever since the death of the last ruler, although some rumors unfold that he may be practicing witchcraft inside his own palace to bring wrath upon his neighbors. These rumors have been since dismissed by many of those in the government.

Tovia▀ - The Kingdom of Tovia▀

A kingdom located further south down, from Jesvean and bordering the coast of the Pvilies Sea. Friendly relations with other neighbors are the norm, although cautious of the various countries around it. Its leader is paranoid, and the military has grown steadily ever since the start of their reign; these have been covered up with calls of peacekeeping by the royal government. No doubt that contraptions built by the military have been tested annually; unusual sightings have popped up in the Pvilies Sea, along with reports of strange noises or the sounds of the world collapsing from time to time.

If there were to be a competition to determine the sick man of this Realm, the Ovarilant Empire would beyond qualify as it appears to be simultaneously dying of pneumonia, cancer, nervous system failure and explosive diarrhea. The scramble to divide the once great power is on, and in the north La˙casript is taking advantage of the situation to "liberate" some states that they apparently owned at one point. The Pvilies Commonwealth has seceded as well, and they are currently attempting to expand their domain. In the south the long oppressed Argosta people have taken advantage of the situation and formed the nation of Argostan, soon after realizing that they probably wanted a warm water port or two. As if this was not enough, apparently the Ovarilants thought it was the perfect time to undergo a neo-socialist revolution.

With the balance of power severely disrupted throughout the Realm after the fall of one of the great powers, the great game of diplomacy has entered new, unstable territory that many fear will lead to a war to end all wars.

Oh, there's also a small island nation called Brunha.



I added a volcanic arc of islands to the east so I can make some sort of sensicle tectonic plates, so comment if you like it or not.

one does not simply take it for 16 hours - I think maybe we should add a time limit, and someone can prolly go over tuto if they want

Tegro and Kulatok have pretty boxy borders, would anyone mind if I cleaned those up a bit?
