V5 Cartography of Eurth Directory Hub
--- Restricted Language Groups ---
Currently 3 language/cultural groups have been restricted on Eurth to avoid over-representation, as we already have a lot of active members with those groups, and we would like to encourage new members to step outside of their box. These language/cultural groups are:
• Germanic Languages/Cultures (>25% of members)
• Romance Languages/Cultures (>23% of members)
• Celtic Languages/Cultures (4 active members and widespread minorities across other members.)
--- Four Core Concepts ---
These are the four concepts/guidelines' members are expected to follow when roleplaying on Eurth. Although these concepts are not directly related to map applications, they should be taken into consideration when applying for the Eurth map. The four concepts are:
--- Starting Stats System ---
This link takes you to the document with the 4-point system Eurth uses. The points are used to ensure newer members are balanced to current geopolitics upon arrival.
--- Map Application ---
The Eurth map application form document, the rules for applying to Eurth, formatting your application, and where to post your application. This document also outlines how the cartographers process applications and manage territorial consent. This link also provides several maps that may help pre-determine where your country may go.
--- Map Thread ---
A thread of maps. The first post on the thread will be changed with every update (not draft) with maps of topography, blank maps with and without borders, et cetera. Everyone is free to post their own maps to the thread.
This thread will begin with v5.11 at the end of August.
--- Ver.5 Continent Discussions ---
These links take you to different continent-specific forum threads where discussions for continent-wide changes between v4 and v5 take place.
--- Expansions and NPC Guidelines ---
All current rules and guidelines for expansions and Non-Player Countries are written here, as well as how to apply for an expansion and the requirements to do so. It will also discuss the differences between Lore NPCs, Expansion NPCs, and Reserved Territory.
--- Inactivity and Termination ---
Guidelines for what constitutes inactivity and the process for dealing with inactivity, which tend to be:
• Reduction in territory (~ ½)
• Scrubbed from the map & Eurth/regional lore
• IP seizure & converted into an NPC
--- Requests & Miscellaneous ---
Document for making requests for map edits and other miscellaneous questions are here.
