German Quarter in Gautig

Posted by Volcanizion on 12 November 2019 in English (English)

So I was looking at Wiesbaden Village and it has buildings and roads in German (or at least based on the language). I think it is good to make this area a sort of the old town of the city. Since Gobrassanya was supposedly colonized by Europe-like countries, it wouldn't be surprising if Gautig (and the surrounding areas) was colonized by Bloregia, Eäßnordælånd or Eshein. It would be really nice to see the entire area be based off a German city. I wanted to use Qingdao as a basis but there's not a lot of German influence there, so I think basing it on Munich would be a good idea.

You are free to do whar you think is needed for the area. Its nice to put this up for discussion. Try to get others to collaborste with you in the area.

Gobrassian history isnt really detailed (apart from some scant details you can see on the Khaiwoon page), but you hit the make saying it might be colonised by various powers (at least, what it was said on the Khaiwoon page). Though the key powers are: Ingerland (UK), Kalm (Germany), Floresecenta (Portugual) and Castellan (Spain).

Other colonial powers like French and Dutch are still in the works, but we have already seen quite a number of Franquese (French) speaking nations in the world (like Beaumontan and Pretany). Dutch have not been established proper; three Dutch nations have pulled out of OGF for various reasons, and there hasnt been an estabilished name for Dutch in OGF yet. (The name High Astrasian doesnt work).

There are still other smaller colonial powers, like Karolia (Scandavian-like) and Pretany (Latin-homeland). Im not sure if there are others.

Bloregia is a small and relatively young nation with no history as a colonial power, imitating mostly Finland and Norway. Also, Bloregian language is not an OGF German equivalent, although it has some German influences. (Same applies to Eäß language if I'm not mistaken.) Minor Bloregian immigrant settlements might exist in Gobrassanya, as kinds of OGF equivalents of Nordic towns in North America.

As someone who has lived in Munich for 17 years of his life, I wish you the best of luck and look forward to not be disappointed
