I have been working on Tojmidia for about 6 months on-and-off, but now I'm hoping to have a more definite goal for where the country is headed.
In the past few weeks, I have added administrative boundaries to all of Tojmidia and have undertaken work on Faarva state/province. Faarva state/province has seen the majority of my time. Fallo itself will take at least another month to complete, by which point I will move on and try not to add tiny pointless details like mapping individual trees (an urge I have to fight).
Once Faarva is done being roughly mapped with a few pockets of detail (Fallo and surrounding areas), I will start mapping Bolgan, a significantly larger city in Karitoft. Alvermod will come after that, (it's more awesome because it has a coast) and Olbayan, the capital, after that. This means that it may be months before Olbayan sees significant mapping due to my preference of completing an area before I move to the next.
The general geography of the country also needs work. Kadu river's riverbank is broken (and too wide in most parts). Many large rivers have zero detail and were sloppily made. The coast is okay, but unrealistic in parts (like the ugly peninsula just north of Alvermod). The current forest areas in the country are closer to rough guidelines of elevation and wilderness than actual forest cover. Honestly, I'm really only proud of the flag :(
Once Faarva is complete and I've added some actual detail to Tojmidia's general geography, I'll put a bit of work into fleshing out Tojmidia's wiki page. Tojmidia's history is still a rough draft, but I have a general idea of what I want the country to be, both politically and historically speaking. My initial plan was to have Upper and Lower Tojmidia be separate political entities in the style of BiH or the UK, but I decided to make them more united because it would be easy for a pro-unificationist dictator or even a representative government to keep them united due to Tojmidia's small size.
The language of Tojmidia takes elements from Mongolian, Swedish, and Finnish. Nothing more complex than that because I'm not a linguist. The only rule I have set up is that Lower Tojmidian-speaking places don't use Å.
I've been steadily improving on scale after my initial delusions of the size of Tojmidia (Alvermod was originally supposed to have a population of 1.5m lol). As far as I know, Fallo and the surrounding area, which are the most recently mapped, look fine to me. Can more experienced mappers confirm this?
Does anyone have any feedback/comments/naming ideas? Thanks :D
