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)

In Pretannia there is a mountain range that runs from south to north from the border with Plevia and occupies the center-south of the country. Two large rivers flow: the Pretannia river in the north, navigable, which has an important transport channel; and the other important river to the east bordering Suria. The climate is humid continental (Warm summer subtype) and oceanic throughout the territory, except in the South-West where it is arid. In addition, there is a high mountain climate in the previously mentioned mountain range.

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

The history and culture of Pretannia is linked to the Romantian culture, since there are historical archives (Old Wiki) which affirm that the birth of the Romantian Empire was in this country and from there it spread to the south (Current Plevia, Navenna, Mitras, Castellan, etc. ) and to the West (Current Franqueterre & Garlis).Pretannia is also culturally influenced by Slavs and Germans adding cultural richness to the country.

The dominant language in Pretannia is Pretanic (= Rhaeto-Roman language) throughout the country. On the Southern border with Plevia Italian language. In the east, Italo-Slavic languages (Conlangs) predominate and in the capital of the country, Latin (Romantian Language) has remained as a secondary language.

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.

I have been mapping Mitras for the last couple of years, and Regions of Valasca and Sarrense in Castellan for the last couple of years, and my style as a mapper has evolved over this time. Some examples follow below:

Discussion for clarification & decision

Hello, Kahl. Some notes regarding this territory:

  • The northern river should probably remain unnamed for now.
  • The imagined canal system also runs through the country's western border all the way from the northern river to the Pretannic Lake. That area should be carefully crafted as it would be an area of collaboration and immense importance to the region and continent.
  • I do like the idea of that area to be the home of the Romantian, however the birthplace of it should not be subject to only one country but instead a smaller area in the region. Nevertheless, I am not entirely opposing the idea of having the birthplace of the culture in the area, although personally I think it would be most fitting if that area was on the coastline of the Pretannic Lake, spanning 08m, 08j and the western part of 08k.

Are these points okay with you? Bixelkoven (talk) 09:14, 22 August 2023 (UTC)

>Hi Bixelkoven, thanks for your response.

Ok, no problem in respecting your suggestions, just add that regarding the channel that runs along the north and west border, I had thought of taking the Rhin River channel as a reference.

Regards, --Kalh79 (talk) 07:45, 28 August 2023 (UTC)

Sounds good, whatever you find useful as a reference is good. Just take caution that you'd need to collaborate with the users on it (although for now noone owns those territories, so it is advised to plan ahead with other potential mappers in mind)

Application approved, welcome to the area - Bixelkoven (talk) 18:29, 31 August 2023 (UTC)
Plans are well coined, it could work as a good project. Have the comments I mentioned above in mind, and with the collaborative nature of this territory's borders. The mapping (old St. Richardus) in the northwest will be moved in the near future.
