Noun Project Map icon 1463108.svgPhysical geography
An overview of climate, topography and landscape of the country. It is advised to also create a sketch, you can add a link to this (hosted on imgur or similar)

Much of this province’s terrain has been filled in. There is a seemingly flatter wetlands area and a blank area where I wing end to put a city in on the shores of a massive lake (that I intend to build a port on). As you go further from the lake, the land gets hillier until the border with neighboring ambroise.

A brief description of the territory demographics, economic development, land occupation, infrastructure and mapping style

I don’t know if I get to choose this as part of Deodeca, but from looking at the landscape there would probably be a substantial timber industry in addition to an agriculture industry hosted in the flatter lands to the south. As for the mapping style, I intend to have a densely populated city center with skyscrapers on the shore of Unnamed Lake, fading to neat suburbs, then to agricultural land, and then to mountains.

Noun Project languages icon 105908 cc.svgHistory & culture
A brief description of the intended culture and language

[copied from wiki as this is part of a collaborative territory]:

  • The area was widely settled by indigenous "First Nations" peoples prior to colonization. While many different Ulethan nations made initial contact during colonization, the largest and most successful colonies were Ingerish. These colonies are assumed to directly influence the modern shape of territories and the nation as a whole.

Once again, I don’t know if I get to choose this, but if I do I intend to have the large city and places closer to the lake English-sounding, but becoming more Franquese -sounding very close to the border with the seemingly Franquese speaking Ambroise.

To support your request provide links to areas of OGF mapping which showcase your mapping skill. Mapping relevant to the requested theme & geography is especially useful
The {{coord}} template can optionally be used to link to the OGF map - it results in a nice formatted link. Or you can paste in a URL.

This is where I have done most of my mapping prior to this point:

Discussion for clarification & decision

To clarify, yes, as part of the larger Deodeca project you can choose local industries to focus on, especially logical ones such as timber and agriculture in an inland territory like this one. Keep in mind that, while there will undoubtedly be some shipping on the lake, there is no (natural) outflow to the larger Lakes network to the east, so the market for lake-borne shipping will be relatively small. Overland (roads and rail) connections to AR060-04 will likely be more common, within reasonable topographic limits. While you're welcome to change the topography of the territory, please don't make any changes to the southern and western ranges without first consulting with your new neighbor (newflanders).

Also, yes, it fits well into the larger Deodeca plans to have your main urban areas be primarily Ingerish- (English-)speaking, with a bit of Franquese (French) along the southern and western borders.

Good luck and happy mapping! --TheMayor (talk) 20:29, 25 March 2022 (UTC)
