Expression of interest: larger Archanta territories

Posted by wangi on 14 February 2020 in English (English)

Hi, the following territories are currently marked as reserved in Archanta and I would like to invite expressions of interest in them (individually). This could be a single advanced user, a group of users or an experienced user looking to coordinate a collaborative.

  • AR043 (Deodeca) - western neighbour of four states of the Federal States, language would be predominately Castellanese/Spanish with Latin American theme
  • AR056g - landlocked, surrounded mainly by Deodeca, Federal States and Ardencia (plus AR056a, AR056c); primary theme would be a majority Native Archantan (Amerindian / Native American) population
  • AR063 (Xsegunis) - southern South Archanta, to the west of Ardencia; primary theme would be a majority Native Archantan (Amerindian / Native American) population, with consistency with Ardencia
  • AR067 - landlocked territory in North Archanta, with Commonwealth of Central Archanta to the west and Commonia to the north. Southern African theme (e.g. Namibia, Botswana, and Malawi), tying in with the Commonwealth. Some flexibility on the borders.

If any of these interest you then please forward on a more detailed plan for the respective territory to the admin inbox, being sure to put the territory ID in the subject.

Thanks/L

Great to see more territories with 'backstories' already thought of! This would encourage people to acquire a territory in Archanta.

I hope that also some of the territories in former Northern Commonia may be reserved for some other potential Southeast Asian/Indian nations, especially with regard to AR909.

That's certainly what I've been working toward, and have just made it more explicit on the territory map.

Thanks for setting this up, wangi! I am very hopeful that someone decides to take AR067 and just want to let everyone interested in the community know that if they want to submit a plan for that project I would like to be a part of that planning process! I'll answer any questions that you might have about Central Archanta so that we can create a seamless area of African-style mapping in the region. I encourage anyone to look past the landlocked nature of the territory because it is very possible that we will be able to expand the already rather large Lake Ichibi Lesto into something like Lake Malawi or [Lake Tanganyika](https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=8/-5.574/29.959] meaning that the area would actually have a decently high population density for being so far inland. I hope that could help attract mappers interested in trying a new mapping style.

Best Wishes, Infrarrojo

Honestly, the former Commonian nations are sort of a jumble, so I would rather place OGF:India in what was Vilvetia due to it bordering Mathani, and how it is very close to the Indonesian/Timorese nations.

Let's not get away on a tangent. There's an overarching desire to not specifically have real word analogues.

... But this is just about those four territories.

I miss the old "State of Reagan" in the old Commonia. It looks like someone built right atop a flood plain and delta that I mapped out.

Hoping to see the now-vacant old Meilan (AN119) reserved and moved to the Asian-inspired area in Archanta like Cinasia. Too much good mapping to risk losing by not moving it.

AR067 has now been allocated.

Also, unrelated specifically to this, mapping from AN119 and AN124 is moving to North Archanta.

I would combine the Castellanese and the Native nations to one, maybe Yuris too if he agrees.
