  1. 🎉 A very happy birthday to you!

  2. Took a first stab at adding some basic maps to our timeline. No lines or borders. Only labels. The idea behind is this might help explain the changes through time. https://iiwiki.us/wiki/Timeline_of_major_events_on_Eurth Feel free to edit and replace. Use the "Upload a new version of this file" feature. Assistance will be given if you don't know how this works
  3. Thank you @Esonice for the reminder. Reading your description of the economic situation and evolution, I get the feeling you're positioning yourself with the role of: an exporter of rare Eurth metals, minerals and gems; and an exchange and distributor for similar resources going to and leaving Alharu. For the 1st role as exporter, your description story of economic recovery and investment would work very well. I like the reference of the "Esonian Tiger" model. The RL analogues of Bolivia (Lithium) and Chile (copper) spring to mind. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy_of
  4. An a holy hat for @Salviaball.
  5. Wish granted! The Paris Commune survives its "bloody week" confrontation with the French army in May 1871. The conflict continues for several more years. As a result, Karl Marx doesn't describe his "dictatorship of the proletariat" and never influence Lenin. Lenin misses his train, the Russian revolution doesn't go anywhere, and Soviet Russia never comes to be. Thanks a bunch, Parisians. I wish snow came in all the colours of the rainbow.
  6. @San Castellino A couple of comments. 1. Area The 4 area points get you an area of between 310,000-350,000 km2. I will try and match this as best as possible with the area you drew. 2. Landscape Meanwhile, I did have a look at the factbook you linked to. It mentions: "The Republic of San Castellino is a large archipelago made up of ten or so islands of varying size (ranging from 24,005 km2 with San Castellino Island, to 4.8 km2 with San-Miguel Island). Its climate is Mediterranean, even mountainous in the center of the large islands." (Source) Since the map you dr
  7. @Theaca Thank you for your patience. If you are alright with the location and limitations as discussed earlier, your country will be created in the area you drew. The balance sheet points you mention will allow a 150,000-200,000 km2 area. I will try and match this as best as possible with the area you drew. This will be included in the next update.
  8. "Why don't I feel like writing" is a really sad question to hear from anyone passionate about writing. But if you find yourself asking this, it doesn't mean your well has truly run dry. You and your craft might just need some... relationship counseling. Maybe this can help.
  9. ¡Hola nuevo amigo! Thanks for the message. As you can see from the application rules, you'll first need to pass through the academy. More about this process here: https://www.europans.com/forum/157-academy/ A mentor can be made available if you would like a helping hand. Good luck and have fun.
  10. 29+30+31. Generations Q. What are the defined generations of your nation, age-wise and culturally? How do different generations get along? And who makes up the next generation to lead your country in the future? A. In Orioni, someone who was born before the 1989 is part of the Owa-liji, named after the late Empress Owa who reigned from 1926 to 1989. Most members of this generation still remember "the old days", either because they lived it themselves or through the stories of their parents. Political scientists consider this Owa era as the last high-water mark for the country.
  11. @Theaca — In that case I'll process the original land claim you showed in your screenshot. In the past there was a similar discussion with @Cashar about having a modern economy in a hot desert. The discussion was mainly about cooling buildings and offices. @Salvia — I draw a realistic border within the available point system. Not sure if that's been discussed on Discord; I don't see it here in the request.
  12. Thanks, Salvia for you feedback. It's easy to display the borders on top of any layer, and even change the colour. I'll keep that in mind.
  13. Aha that's interesting. You may want to share these opinions with
  14. @Anatea Okday, will add these new cities in the next update, marking this topic as #todo. The NPC's in Aurelia do take up a lot of space. This a was a trial. Given the excellent feedback shared in another topic, it seems to be a good idea to limit the number of NPC's and try a different approach.
  15. Happy 20th birthday @Batengdei!
  16. Copied from Discord. https://discord.com/channels/274678876242837505/274678876242837505/794298135757062164
  17. Finished plugging the holes in the country table. https://iiwiki.us/wiki/Eurth#Countries Next up: Simplifying the hex colours. Integrating the HoS/HoG.
  18. Okido, wil update. I'll add a reserved area for @Oyus as well.
  19. Will do. Based on the topic title, I presume you want the joint name to be: "Gallambrian Adl. Ocean Territories / Ashford & Tarago". If the two flags are merged into one, which would be the one that remains?
  20. Well you can still play as a link in the !Silk Road. If you desire that area you drew in South Alharu, you'll have to work within the existing parameters: Tropical climate. This doesn't necessarily have to be a limiting factor. Really depends on how you roll with it. Culture. Strong presence of native Alharun peoples. Working with the diverse set of neighbours: !Asian Fulgistan and Yeosan, native Metztlitlaca and Oyus, colonial Shffahkia and Mauridiviah. This could be your reason for having a large numbers of !Asian traders present. Economy. That location would certainly be s
  21. Meanwhile, in the Yellow Empire of Not-Fulgistan. Different hat for the real @Fulgistanball. Wing commander @Anateaball takes to the skies.
  22. The most recent map update (30 December 2020) includes an attempt at NPC's in Aurelia. Please keep in mind that this is an experiment. Right now this continent has a limited number of active players. The borders and names come from a really detailed proposal by @Shffahkia. There are also some references in https://iiwiki.us/wiki/Shffahkian_Empire. The above image shows what these places could look like in the present. What's your opinion on fleshing out these empty areas? How would you solve potential conflicts? Which changes or improvements would you prefer?
  23. In December the Köppen climate map was used to create two simpler climate versions. I'm not sure which works best. So I could use some help. What is your opinion? Which improvements will help us? The update of December 2nd included a test version with the only 5 simplified climate zones: dark-green tropical regions yellow semi-arid steppe regions red arid desert regions green temperate regions white-ish polar regions The update of December 30th included another attempt at some natural colours, with more intermediate colours.
  24. Map: political variant with countries and borders https://i.imgur.com/Rx10eXe.png Map 2: another attempt at some natural colours https://i.imgur.com/laj9Aq9.png and still not convinced which version works best. Let's discuss: https://www.europans.com/topic/5531-eurth-map-rework/ Added: Add "reserved" area for @Prymont. Added "Ceris" label for @Seylos. Added cities for @Esonice. Added city for @Salvia. Add Ooreta city in @Rekamgil Returned some lakes that had gone missing dried up. Added placeholder sea names where it makes sense.
  25. 22. Drugs Q. What are the most common recreational substances in your nation? What is their legality? Which demographics use which drugs the most? A. The varying degrees of legality of recreational drugs and their use in Orioni. Alcohol is highly regulated. Alcoholic beverages are classified in three categories. Drinks in class A have <5% alcohol with a 50% tax; class B has 5-20% alcohol and is taxed at 100%; and class C has >20% alcohol and it taxed at 200%. The highest tax is also applied on any imported alcoholic drinks. Cannabis was banned in 1926 by Empress O
