Discussion for clarification & decision

Hello TheSeamonster, thank you for your interesting application. A couple of comments:

  • For "physical geography", you mention a tropical climate. Please be aware that the territory you applied for is a country with a steppe climate, bordering even a desert zone. Furthermore, glaciers would also be non-existent at this latitude. You may reference the EUC to get an overview over East Uletha's different climate zones. The salt lake would be an interesting and very realistic touch I feel however ;)
  • In the administrative map you posted, it looks like UL27d is an island. Please be aware that only the north western part is an actual coastline. Also, currently, a major river originates in UL31a, flows along UL31a's border with Reelant, then passes through UL27d and through Reelant again to finally reach the ocean. Please rework your topography and watershed concept in a way that goes together with these existing natural features, or make proposals for larger-scale changes that can be coordinated with your neighbours.
  • Most importantly: please continue practising your mapping a little more before applying for a personal territory. I see that you already have over 100 edits, however they mostly consist of very small and unconnected pieces of mapping. Consider applying for a Beginner territory! The mapping you do there can still be moved to a permanent territory later on if you want to do so in the future :)
