Feedback on the Beginnings of a Cultural Collision Zone

Posted by geoboi on 15 March 2019 in English (English)

Hello everyone,

This is a question about the CONCEPT, not the MAPPING QUALITY (yet).

I asked kaanhanel, the user in charge of mapping Elmali, if Leresso and Elmali could have a sort of "cultural collision zone" where the Everian and Turquese languages and cultures collide. In Everian, it is known as Xéstohyàlarés. In Ingerish, it is known as West River Territory. I definitely think, for the sake of verisimilitude, that more areas like Xéstohyàlarés should exist in the OGF world.

What do you guys think of this small-scale collaboration concept? Any advice for kaanhanel and I moving forward in terms of developing the history of the region and mapping?

I appreciate the feedback!

I do like the idea of this, though due to the fact that the cultures of the OGF world are variant, rather sporadic and random and change regularly this is rather hard to achieve and keep. It also requires commitment to staying in your own territory (to which I can hardly say, for example, that I comply with). It'd also be quite hard to achieve, with IRL examples of this difficulty being Alsace-Lorraine which is entirely mapped in French, despite a fairly significant German presence there, due to it being owned by France.
