Řots is slowly getting some kind of shape. Especially the mapping part is somewhat new to me; since creating detailed maps of my ficticious countries has never been a priority, I am most comfortable with making them on the national level only (and even then I often leave out roads and rivers). Apart from some unfinished attempts in the past, Nekkar and Hamabaurgs (in West-Commonia) are by far the most developed city maps that I ever designed and seeing some of the other cities here at OGF, there is still a lot to do. Deciding what should be where on walking distance scale, estimating the size of buildings, etc. will therefore prove to be a new challenge – if I ever get to that, because there is a lot more to fill in on the national and provincial levels.
At this moment I’m mostly trying to give the coast a less straight character; after that I will probably work on the national borders of Řots (if that is allowed, as I don’t have neighbours yet with whom I can discuss this..).
My other plans are creating some more people (most notably, there will be a notorious duchess who shall be considered a black sheep in her noble family ‘because’ or ‘and because of that’ she has rejected living according to the rules of the Codex any longer) and publish news articles to add a bit of life to Řots. I have to elaborate the local sport of Rřap and I have to revise the description of the Řotsnan grammar; I discovered that the verb system in practise hasn’t turned out the way I described it.
Too bad that there are only 24 hours in a day...
