New country

Posted by cibrage on 8 August 2017 in English (English)

Hello everyone!

I've begun mapping a new country in Uletha - Ćira. I'm hoping to stay active and to keep good relations with everyone.

Location: Muckrushia, Ćira

Welcome, cibrage! I really liked the name of your cities and of your country. What are your influences? :)

Thanks! They're in a language very loosely based on Czech and Lithuanian. A notable influence would be a little weird - the Prague Metro station names.

Interesting! It got my attention because it is somewhat similar to Nasmany, the language spoken (alongside French) in my country, mainly used to name places, like Ćimiarića, Poleźar and so... well, I had Eastern European influences, but with Bulgaria and Poland in mind.

By the way, is that a lake near Klvádanca? I like the way it connects the neighbouring countries (and possibly with the sea via that river flowing near Vendra and through Suriya). Keep going!

The mix of french, a more gentle language and slavic languages is rather interesting and yes, I can really see some similarities between our languages! I was trying to make a difficult to pronounce, "vowel-hating" language, though yours seems a little more forgiving to foreigners, haha.

Since I can't have any land connections with my neighbors Litvania and Drabantia, water transport will be the main way of reaching them.

Hi, hello and hey and welcome to the area! I'm the owner of Drabantia, just across the lake from you. I'm open to collaboration and if you need help with anything, let me know.

So, here's like two or three things you may find useful to know.

  • The river flowing out of the lake doesn't have an official name yet, but I like to use the name Ina or Inna.

  • The Egalian Lake got its name from Egalia, which is the area in Litvania and Drabantia on its shore, and a historical country that influenced our countries in the past. (See wiki.)

  • Happy mapping!

PS: I didn't quite catch any Prague metro references even though I live in Prague, but I suppose that's a good thing.

Hello, very nice to meet you! I have actually named the river already, because I didn't realize how big it actually is. I do like that name and I'll change it asap. I hope we'll get along.

P.S.: It was only where I drew inspiration from. I'll make sure to add one or two references in my capital's metro ; )

Hello there! I am extremely happy to see our region gain interest with others! I'm Michal, the owner of Litvania, and I welcome to you to OGF. It's great to see that the egailian region is now full of active nations to collaborate with.

I like your language, and i would like to ask if you are an avid paper map drawer as well;)

Anyways I hope that you stay active and we can collaborate on any Water connections (finally, only was a dream of mine to make some water connections across the egailian lake!)

Happy mapping, and feel free to contact me for any questions!

Michal

Hello to you too! I was a little hesitant when picking the territory because I thought that the neighboring countries won't be too active, but now I can see that it won't be a problem!

I used to draw maps of continents and countries on little pieces of paper, but I'm still new to more detailed planning. Hope to begin collaborating soon!
