Naming the Mountains


Recommended Posts

dMxg0Qm.jpg

With oceans and seas slowly getting their names, it's time we have a look at mountains and mountain ranges.

Do you have a mountain in your own nation? Let us know where it is and what name you'd like to give it, and it can be marked with a 🔺

Please do try to be more original than everyone's apparent favourite Mt. Olympus.

Here is a list to help you on your way:

  • Mountain - a mountain is generally steeper than a hill.
  • Mountain range - a series of mountains or hills ranged in a line and connected by high ground; mountain ranges are usually segmented by highlands or mountain passes and valleys.
  • Massif - a large mountain mass or compact group of connected mountains forming an independent portion of a range.
  • Plateau - a high plain or a tableland.
  • Hill - a hill may refer to a particular section of flat terrain without a massive summit.
  • Volcano - a rupture in the crust of Eurth that allows hot lava, volcanic ash, and gases to escape from a magma chamber below the surface.

(Although I’m not on the map) I call the largest mountain range in my domain the Divine rocks. This range has a thousand mountains but also contains many volcanoes including the highest point in my nation, Mount Enclave which rests at 3,666 feet. They also contain the highest waterfall in the nation from the second highest point: the 3,000 foot crimson dome named for its red lake  (Lake Julius) on its summit which flows down its northern face. As part of the coronation the monarch must hike the mountain and bathe in the sacred lake.

The mountains to the north of Alenveil are referred to as The Kendovstrunmahhe (Jesus, that's a mouthful. This can be shortened however you see fit). Their name is the only thing left of Kogaan culture that has stood the test of time and avoided Limonaian conquest, but their true meaning and translation are unknown. (OOC: Kendovstrunmahhe is "Soldier Mountains.")

The largest mountain that looks like an ax is called Hahkunstrunmah. Hahkunstrunmah is divided by the Ysgram Valley into two pieces. The southern portion is called Vurstrunmah and the northern portion is the Tuzstrunmah. (OOC: Hahkunstrunmah is "Axe Mountain," Vurstrunmah is "Valor Massif," and Tuzstrunmah is "Blade Massif.")

The circular-shaped mountain south of the curve of Tuzstrunmah is known as Key Spaan, and the cylindrical mountain to the southwest of Key Spaan is called Key Zahkrii. (OOC: Key Spaan is "Mount Shield," and Key Zahkrii is "Mount Sword.")

I would also like to request that some mountains be named. I would like these ones marked as 'Apf Kadirn-Gebirge' (my best attempt at corrupting Celtic words, meaning 'Son of the Mighty').

And this small one marked as 'Þiudansfaírgun' (Gothic meaning 'King's Mountain).

I guess as the only one around this mountain range, I can name it. I think that's how it works, at least in colonial times it was :P.

The Metztli-Aslo- call the mountain range many names, but the most common and used in official documents is "Tapatepetli".
However an older name for the mountain range is Sukōravval, although is only used by the Metztli-Tapelt or in general poetry.

Andalla doesn't even have any "mountains" by Eurth standard, so I'll just have my highest peak on the map. Storvitinden, located on the fourth main island from the north. The island right below the three small ones and above the huge "n"-shaped one. :2thumbs:

Tectonic map can use some volcanic activity. Does anyone know where to place these?

Llalta was originally destroyed by a volcanic eruption in the 1800s, and Seylos is formed by a now inactive chain of volacnos.

Near the western coast of Cashar is the Marjan Mountains stretching west, and near the eastern coast (and extending south) are the Walstret Mountains.

The highest peak in Cashar is Mount Lazez in the Marjan Mountains at 3, 488 m.

I guess a request to... Myself? Weird.

I'm going to be adding Mt Dhiīve to Xio (Dhiive on the map), as the sacred mountain prominent in the Xi religion (the same large central mountain on Xio's flag). The D'Kalla mountains also renamed to the Dhiikala mountains, closest in the Xi Dialect/Language to 'D'Kalla'.

Hello if possible can you please rename the Kendovstrunmahhe Mountains to the Yetis Mountains

Why the name yetis? The name would originate from the Yetish empire @Ateenia. And they would also give there name to the peninsula. And secondly it’s much easier to spell. If the original name most be keep because of old time sake that’s fine.

I have no problem with this, the original namer of these mountains has long since left and it has subsequently only been used a handful of times since (and those that have could easily be retconned to be a mountain ridge within the greater 'Yetis Mountain Range'). All I would need is consent from @Ateenia and @Ulfheimr, former for lore and latter for proximity.
