The Pretanic Faction State, or just Antigo, is a totalitarian dictatorship which used to be part of Pretany. The country is a "community territory", marked in purple on the overview map. If you are interested, contact bhj867 or zhenkang. It will be courteous if you inform us if you are mapping in the area, then we may assign you an area to build on.

This page is intended to support collaboration for this country.

Guidelines

As stated in one of bhj867's diary entries, there are guidelines concerning the PFS.

  • Any new mappers will be assigned a duchy within the country. You are to map WITHIN the borders of that duchy only and with supervision from me and zhenkang.
  • This is an internship so to speak. You are learning to collaborate with each other on your borders and how to function in a productive manner to produce aesthetic looking maps. The mods have the right to tell you to change something if it is outlandish. In the most polite manner possible. We also hold the right to "tweak" but only before letting you know what we are doing and why it needs to be done. including but not limited to, scale inaccuracies, unauthorized motorways, city grids that are not neat and organized. The quality of your mapping = how much we let you map without interruptions. More experienced or talented mappers may never be bothered at all as long as something is not completely astray. This is a learning experience and a "school" of sorts. Please set your expectations to that level moving forward.
  • If you do not want a full duchy, you can map within a "residential land use" of a small town or city within the PFS, and that includes the city of Antigo with help from zhenkang and me.
  • The PFS has mainly Algonquin-like location names, with many street names references members of the "revolution" and other ingerish/anglo dominated names. There is a strong Pretanic culture within the country itself. The Antigo language is a loose mutated form of Algonquin and Arabic combined, widely spoken, and growing yearly. Have fun with the culture. It is not going to be micromanaged in terms of region to regional differences during the mapping process, but I do want it uniform across the entire country.
  • PFS is very central and South American in its road layout. It is a very ancient area, so many cities may even have an ancient "square" where there used to be a temple for cuppa sacrificial worship.
  • Any motorways are SET IN PLACE unless needed to be moved in 1-3 km or below increments around towns and cities, This keeps the motorways currently in place from becoming messy. Any additional motorways must be approved by me or zhenkang.
  • I also encourage ALL members, not just new people, to message me or post below and get assigned an area.
  • This is an impoverished totalitarian dictatorship with cruel tendencies like North Korea. Think of all of the atrocities that may or may not happen in the real world, and even in possible fiction like the handmaid's tale or 1984, and add that to this country. Zones, tent cities, concentration camps, "indoctrination" schools. Large halls in every town for local oligarchy meetings. The original layout of what PFS looked like before the government takeover is vague and always "hinted" at in the mapping. Examples would be former commercial centres converted into churches, Former non-cuppa religious institutions burned to the ground, tightly guarded housing "districts" that were formerly loose suburbs, government corporations and housing stock linked to the same property. like a "company store" or a "company housing"
  • HAVE FUN!!!!

Motorway system

For those mapping in the Pretanic Faction State, if you want to create new motorways/trunk roads, you must obtain permission from the coordinators bhj867 or zhenkang. The PFS is a dictatorial nation similar to North Korea, and the government for the PFS may not have the money to construct too many motorways, so we do not encourage new motorways unless we think it is necessary. This is also the same for other nations.

Please note also the level of the roads must not exceed 'trunk roads'.
