For some reason the link to my factbook isn't in the original post, so here's a second link that hopefully sticks around.

Personally, I think this place would make a great spot for @Galahinda, @Orioni. The climate would match and there could most certainly be some historical colonial shennanigans between @Limonaia, @Fleur de Lys and @Kipan there. Furthermore, that's a great spot to do business with the powerhouse Kipanese economy, *cough cough* me *cough cough*, and the entirety of the Aurelian continent. Naturally, this might limit Kipan's potential future expansions, so their input would be important to this decision.

Alternatively, one of the islands north of @Synturia might be a suitable place for a postcolonial megacity as well.

*rubs hands together* Sounds like you are itching to give the Aurelian League another member @Sunset Sea Islands lol. However, you are right -- @Kipan would need to be involved in this discussion as I am sure he has some 19th century colonialism going on over there.

Concerning the second set of islands, I am pretty sure @Fulgistan has been pining for them...in some future scenario.

I saw @Rihan's ping. From what I read of Galahinda's, I don't think the island right next to me would make the most sense cultural-wise. I am of the opinion that Northern/Western Aurelia is a sudo-Asiatic-esque area. As with the longstanding opinion, Aurelia is a hodge podge of cultures. Why not consider a portion of the landmass between Aurelia and Alharu? Perhaps a set of islands in Marenesia or even some other islands between Argis and Europa (Adaptus)?

These are all very good points,

I remember we had discussed an island location in between the New World and Adaptus that @Galahinda liked.  Maybe he’s changed his mind, but that’s what he had decided on iirc.

the island that Sancti is referencing as us liking is this island to the east of Seylos image0.png

It is an interesting proposition but seems quite isolating.

It would be. Why not take a very compact place in Alharu?

I apologize for the intrusion *but*

Galahinda arguably wouldn't be that isolated. If anything the screenshot above can be a little misleading. In doing some measurements, his closest neighbors would be a decent bit closer than my own if he became a neighbor to Seylos. Of course, it would likely mean the climate would not be the one originally intended by Galahinda and at that point it would be a compromise I would presume.

To SSI's second suggestion, if I do have any say due to proximity, I would not be opposed to having a neighbor somewhat close to me if Galahinda were to take up residence in the smaller isle east of Synturia. Alternatively, he could take the spot in which Synturia currently resides? I know that Synturia's place on the map has been a little bit of discussion and depending on where it is at, perhaps a new occupant could take their place. This is of course presuming Galahinda likes the thought and that the discussion is where it should be.

If climate and being an island is something very important to Galahinda, and SSI's suggestion is not ideal I would also be willing to offer up my southern isle and reshape Oyus a little to make necessary adjustment as not much-if much at all-has really been done, fleshed out, and written with regard/reference to it. The only major city has been referenced very little and could easily be replaced. There is no catch to this, I don't expect some sort of compensation or anything like that presuming this would be allowed in the first place and presuming if Galahinda really found it to be desirable. (This could be just unnecessary)

I apologize if I made any great leaps and strides in making some presumptions.

I’m honestly not too attached to the climate aspect, as long as it’s not arctic tundra or Sahara I’m fine with whatever.

Let's see what @Orioni suggests and go from there.

@Galahinda I'm glad you made it through the academy. Clean application. This checks all the boxes.

In the above conversation I see three locations being mentioned: west of @Kipan, north of Synturia, east of Seylos.

  • Location: It's perfectly reasonable to request an island all to yourself. As others have already mentioned, do keep in mind that you're complicating your own future expansion plans. 😉 So don't say we didn't warn you, because I'll be referencing this text here if you do.
  • Climate: The island east of Seylos comes closest to your desire to be in a Mediterranean or Caribbean climate. The other two locations are certainly much more tropical.
  • Culture: Choosing a history that is realted to Lysian, Limonaian, or Adapton will most likely result in an Adlantic location. This just makes the most sense. The area on the Oriental Ocean we would like to reserve for other culture groups. More on that later.

Based on your own criteria, I think the best spots would be: either east of Seylos (1st choice) or north of Synturia (2nd choice). As a 3rd choice you could also consider the island west of Seylos. It's currently unoccupied. And I don't believe anyone had expansion plans in that direction. (Do correct me if I'm wrong.)

I'm completely alright with you settling there! It'll be fun having a neighbor that isn't a crazy empire.

I say 3 is your best option. Orioni's #2 is actually where @Fulgistan is looking to expand (and where Rihan will hide under the cover of night and blow up his fleet, I mean, launch a massive fireworks display to show the friendship between the two countries).

I'd have said 1, but I don't really have a horse in this race.

I would like to state though I did kind of have "expansion ideas" and story ideas for the island west of Seylos (3) but I haven't posted anything formal about it so my ideas can change on the matter.

      I have been doing some initial contemplation over what a prospective expansion of the Republic may look like. Given that Aurelia is rather devoid of nations, it may be prudent to become the 'big' nation. None of this is set in stone but it would occur in two parts over the next year. The map below is for discussion purposes only.

      Part 1: The area between the current red border and everything within the expanded yellow line would occur during the course of the next six months. It is within this area that involves 'Enolia,' a people the Republic attempted to conquer, only be to defeated horribly in what ultimately became a war of attrition. Tensions will rise with Enolia along the eastern borders and this only one element of the political game that will be occurring. As many of you have seen, there is a hidden war between ambitious senators over replacing Terix, the current Praetor. Whoever succeeds him may use the tensions with Enolia to bolster their political fortunes, and secure more support by promising the wealth of the land in exchange for funding the war which they, the Republic would win. As you can see, this land would also look to be heavily fertile, making the Republic perhaps one of the most extensive food exporters. This yellow-area expansion would also unlock new mineral resources to further accelerate industrialization and additional ore exports to more industrial-heavy states. I would be kinda be treating this expansion in the same way as the Roman Republic expanded into Spain or Asia. I am also contemplating a situation where the Praetor who led this war may inevitably be removed by a more 'consensus' individual in due time because they are discovered doing some less than 'honorable' things. This could also be an opportunity to provide the region with a Tiberius/Gaius Gracchus moment of very, very influential commoner magistrates demanding more from the far more powerful Senate.
      Part 2: The area between the current red border on the north and all the land within the teal line (including an unseen section at the top of the forked rivers) this would happen at towards the end of next year. It is my current inclination for a different individual or perhaps even a yet-to-be-created Senate faction will convince enough members in the chamber to emancipate all the remaining Zelvorians [who make up the largest contingent of remaining slaves], and give them an opportunity to resettle, abet far from the center of the Republic, to the more less agricultural nice and far more mountainous north. They would be given some level of political autonomy as a client state, though they would still be dominated by the Rihannsu. Again, this would allow the Republic to triple, if not quadruple mining potential, giving the state a massive cash cow.
      Some of you are probably asking why I am not looking instead to the west of the Republic? There are two reasons: firstly, based on what I've read of Kipan's factbook, I have the inclination to believe that his former Imperial colonies are probably over there and I foresee him as a long-term trading partner and would prefer to have a friendly relationship rather than a potential rival. Secondly, Asgeirria and the Republic have a mutual understanding concerning the Aurelian continent that seems to have an interest in the western coastline.
      This is just the beginning of the conversation and I welcome everyone to help me develop/refine/suggest - or even participate to some extent. I firmly believe that this two-part expansion (which would be dubbed the 'Second Expansionst Age') will have profound impacts on Aurelia and the wider global community.

      I'd like to expand into the former territory of Beautancus. He left around the same time as I did, and to my knowledge is not active within the region or even a nation on NS any longer. I have considerable history however with that area from previous role-plays in the archive and so forth. 
      I will begin a role-play concerning it as well leading up to it, from the current diplomatic thread here:
