You can use Hoppon which is about 90% japanese. or Hopponese as I call them. Not much built but it is between Ataraxia and Wiwaxia in Uletha.

I've been in the process of determining Calliesanyo's colonial period, so if there's room in your history for a Calliesanyan colony somewhere starting around 1650-1690 (A little short of your 400 years, but close enough to be approximate), I would be happy to help get the histories to work together. Calliesanyo speaks Babelic, which has in my practice just been Google Translate simplified Chinese since I'm not sure how the Semetic roots thing the wiki mentions is supposed to work.

You can use Castellanese language (Sapanish). This language is originated in Castellán and today used in wide distribution in the world due to the historic colonial activities of the Castellanese people. My idea is that between 1400 and 1470 the Castellanese Empire expands into Tarephia and Antarephia colonizing Latina, Paxtar (for example) and other countries of those continents , from 1480-1550 to Archanta through Central Ocean. This expansion could have happened by the need to find resources to cover religious wars between Castellan and Mazan.

@ Portopolis and @ Reece202: I would like to use Hoppon as a source for settlers and later immigrants, and Calliesanyo for a source of later immigrants for my province of Sabishii, if that's acceptable. I'm trying to stick to predominantly Japanese sounding names for places and people.

@ FBG: Can I reference Picard as a source for Brunich settlers and immigrants for two provinces? If it is okay I'll update my Germlish references over to Brunich. And I'd like to add some Brüenden referencing names to places also. Neu Brüenden (or a Paxlingua-cized version) for a city or area?

@ Kalh79: The three spanish (somewhat) speaking provinces began settlement in the early 1600s. A good place to look for resources, providing land-grants to groups willing to supply goods back to Castellán. Later abandoned by, or cut off from, Castellán due to their remoteness? The Sathrian Empire invasions of Castellán sounds like a good trigger event.

Brunich settlers allowed to settle areas further inland, since they would eventually send goods back down the rivers, which would ultimately aid Castellán.

Hopponese settlers and latin speaking settlers arrived in the northwest earlier, so their history will be separated somewhat form the Castellanese in the south.

A thought in regards to the User Diary about Ocean Names. There's a large bay or gulf to the west of Paxtar, south of Hiltonia and southeast of Btuaga. [ Map ] That would be a good body of water to name after a Castellanese explorer. An OGF version of Magellan, Drake or Columbus, if one exists, would be good to mention in the other diary.

Thank you all.
