PostSubject: Geography of Adonia   Fri Jan 30, 2015 9:02 am

Here we can discuss how the actual LAND of Adonia will appear, which, considering Cipher's lack of geographical description outside of 'here thar be', would b extremely beneficial.

As of now, however, we should decide on cities and landmarks, which we can then establish relative locations between, and then iron it out here. The blank space in between landmarks is a lot less important than the landmarks themselves.

So think of this as a placeholder, I suppose.

I move that we don't worry about neighboring and far off countries more than then in the super generics that "they exist and are kind of *insert land type here*" until we have a map for Drachurst in mind.

Mainly I mean no details and directions for those things yet. I know a few people have been chomping at the bit for these to do backstories, but we only have the vaguest sense of our main area so far.

Drachurst comes first.

I was thinking Drachurst would have 3 'major' mountains (or large mountainous areas) on 3 completely different parts of it (accounting for the different geography and whatnot)

The first would be a standard giant stone mountain, the second would be up in the northern (snowier) area, and the 3rd... Would be a volcano. Either towards the edge or off on its own island somewhere.

Any opinions on this?

You might need four, unless no one has "normal" mountain plans inside Drachurst, since Kuro's home and all that stuff we discussed the other day with Chris and the twins (which would also have a fairly safe, quiet town at the base, that I have not given a name yet). Considering bamboo forest, it being the volcano or snowy region doesn't make much sense. And while the volcano might be interesting for fueling his forge, I'm sure other people are going to have plans for a volcano.

So 4 conveniently elemental mountains (Grassy/Water-y, Stony, Snowy and Volcano-y) cool with everyone then? :0

I suggest a ruined city up somewhere near the midland north. There are plains south of it, mountains north of it, and it is a distance from any active roads/cities. Its name is Arisfol.

I suggest that a large (but not enormous) forest is to the west and north (more west than north) of the continent. On the outer side (toward the coast) is a village that seems to be the most uneventful city that exists. It is small and quiet and not densely populated. On the side of the forest away from the coast would be a much more active town that is more generic, although it attracts a lot of scientists who want to study the forest. This would be the closest town to Arisfol. Existing towns might fit for these, or I could create names.

I suggest that a rocky hill/small mountain slightly north of Lochmere Town and concealed from the surrounding geography. This hill would be a Scientists' Village. It is technically a part of Friezant (maybe a district) but it is away from the crowd to better host the observatory and research buildings. It is somewhat obscurely located, even though it's right near (and technically part of) the capital.

I suggest that to the southwest be a desert peninsula, uninhabited except for a village near the entrance and one on the coast. This desert is fraught with dangers, and few make a journey to traverse it.

I never saw that map before, so no I didn't. I don't recognize anything though, so I don't count >_>

Anyhow I was more referring to the use of a pre-made map..and just relabeling. Though on this map is generally every different kind of geography so....good start here.

I personally don't particularly care for using a premade map, but if it can be made to work...eh, I'll live with it, I guess.

I'd much rather see a custom-built world than a world rupped from an anime or other media, but adaik none of ys are cartographers
Maybe we could find some random generic fantasy map and lavel it as we need?
