The State will be flat, with a large mountain range in the middle. The mountain range will push the clouds up and make it rain alot on the western side of the mountains. On the north coast there is a small mangrove swamp. There will be two main rivers, The northern main river will run through the main city and end in a delta. The second one runs into another state and goes through their biggest city. The northern coast is a tropical rain forest while the middle coast is a subtropical rain forest.

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 me and legoman mainly map: OGFmapicon.png Benderth - Sandalos Area

  • Just so you know, AR120-87 is a constituent state of the Federal States of Archanta project, and is not an independent nation. Accordingly, please update your application to acknowledge this and try to understand how this state would fit in with the rest of the nation. Alternatively, you're welcome to reapply for a different territory elsewhere. --TheMayor (talk) 16:10, 13 April 2024 (UTC)
  • Hi, unfortunately your application isn't detailed enough to really be considered - it needs more information and the sketch should be based upon the OGF map and show land use. The geography feels different from what is currently mapped, but how does that interact with neighbouring states? It's also really hard to evaluate your mapping level, as there a few mappers active in the same area. So, can I suggest BG13 instead? This would allow you both space to demonstrate your concept, while also allowing opportunity for a fully proposal to be written in time. If a subsequent application is successful then mapping could be moved. Thanks/wangi (talk) 08:09, 17 April 2024 (UTC)
