Hi, Tparigo! I notice you are using ".br" as Internet TLD to Broceliande, but I was using it first, to Brasonia, as the list in List of country code top level domains. Could you change?? -- BMSOUZA (talk) 19:40, 4 December 2015 (CET)

Oh Sorry.

Yes i change.

Thank you, Tparigo! ;-) BMSOUZA (talk) 21:36, 9 December 2015 (CET)

Shipping lines?

Can I add one? ZM misses an underscore and the z needs to be small (talk) 07:41, 15 February 2016 (CET)

Clear - we can make one from Troie to Saguset in Latina --Histor (talk) 11:35, 15 February 2016 (CET)

Hi, No problem, feel free to link Troie with your main ports --Tparigo (talk) 11:49, 15 February 2016 (CET)


The OGF world uses different words for some things, mostly languages. And I think the OGF word for French is Franquese _zM (aka ZM)(talk here) 15:40, 22 February 2016 (CET)

Greater Franquese Empire?

I was wondering whether it is possible to change our histories a tiny bit to form something similar to the French Empire (with the general area of Lycene Tarephia), just one that is now split up in the OGF World. Yes, I acknowledge that UL141 is also planned to be some sort of "France", but I think it is still possible to have some sort of Tarephia-based "French Empire". --Thanks, Trombonist2003 (talk) 18:40, 29 September 2018 (CEST)

Hi, why not! What countries/territories would be involved? --Tparigo (talk) 10:10, 1 octobre 2018 (CEST)

In my opinion, "Franqueterre" would have been a relatively small nation (Métropolitaine, for lack of other word), but the Franquese empire woul have spread out over vast amounts of land. For "Franqueterre métropolitaine", it would hopefully span across The majority of Côte d'Or, Kurromatania, Ferran, some of Ünglend, Tigeria, Compaly, Cuvian, and Balavalonia, and the entirety of Brocéliande and Beaumontan. The link below should take you to a map describing it:
The empire would have former colonies in almost every part of the OGF World, (maybe even all the way as to "creating" Ataraxie), almost like the Ingerish Commonwealth. --Thanks, Zekiel (talk) 17:49, 1 October 2018 (CEST)
I like this idea. Just so you're aware, the Franquese communities in Tigeria are primarily in Bergeronneau, the southern regions of Haxiwen, and the Cinq Îles. I have written Tigeria's basic history so that Tigeria would never have been a colony, but I would be open to a historically united nation made up of constituent nations in the style of the United Kingdom. I found out that Broceliande is a place in Brittany and is associated with the legend of King Arthur, so I thought we could derive other historical places from that region and legend. I like the name Grande Lyonesse (Lyonesse was a mythical land at the western end of England which was destroyed by a great flood) which would refer to the sea around the Cinq Îles and the Îles du Midi. Maybe Grand Ys also works (a similar land near France was called Ys). Although the OGF people are now in separate nations, they once could have been united under a single Lyonese/Ysian identity. Just a thought. --Chazeltine (talk) 09:39, 6 October 2018 (CEST)
I think that that's a great idea, the monarchical union, most likely under the Broceliande throne, that dissolved maybe around the time of Prince Henri or Guillaume II, due to major interior tensions or the like. In terms of name, I am open to any, as long as it has some sort of relation to the language name Franquese (please correct if I am wrong). As well, I would like to create something similar to La Francophonie for former Franquese colonies and other.--Thanks, Zekiel (talk) 14:11, 6 October 2018 (CEST)
How about "Francesca" or le Francès, which is derived from "the free one" (in Compaglia they would call it "la Francesca"). The language is Franquese, and the speakers are called Francesophones in La Francèsophonie. --Chazeltine (talk) 18:24, 6 October 2018 (CEST)
I like the idea of of a monarchial union like the UK which would have collapsed somewhere during the XIX century. As we don't know from where the Franqueses come we have to assume that settlers arrived in souhtern Taprephia and founded several Kingdoms or Principalties or free cities. For the name, i would go for something very french, equivalent of Nouvelle France or Territoires de Taréphie or Taréphie Française or Union Française de Taréphie; assuming that in this union, countries have a large independance.
On the other subject of the equivalent of the Organisation internationale de la Francophonie, it is something i have in mind. That's why i started developing a network of Instituts Franquais in serveral countries. --Tparigo (talk) 11:45, 8 October 2018 (CEST)
What's stopping us from making southwest Tarephia the homeland of La Francèsophonie other than the wiki? Yes, UL141 is a planned Franquese-speaking nation, but it currently doesn't exist and should have no influence on our mapping. When UL141 does come into existence, it could be a former colony of Francès/l'Union Franquaise de Taréphie much like Brazil was a colony of Portugal. I also like the idea of the Instituts Franquais. --Chazeltine (talk) 16:36, 8 October 2018 (CEST)
I would agree with Chazeltine, where Le "Franqueterre" or Francèsophonie, or UFT, etc. can not only be the former dominant franquese region, but the Franquese origin. Yeah, its location is a bit awkward to make colonies around the world, but in truth, UL141 is frankly much worse in terms of location. So as the predecessor to whatever union name we decide on, could there be that one giant Franquese entity that is southern Tarephia and the true origin of the Franquese language?
The one nation that really messes with the extreme imbalance of power in the X to XVI century that is focused in North-western Uletha. Because of that lack of other powerful nations, the homeland could easily spread far out not only into Tarephia, but slowly build the empire that spreads across the entire world, eventually founding UL141 and Ataraxie.--Thanks, Zekiel (talk) 19:43, 8 October 2018 (CEST)
Franqueterre sounds ok for me (Francèsophonie doesn't sound french). I still believe that whatever the origin of Franquese is, it should be somewhere up North. We could go for Nouvelle Franqueterre for this area of southern Tarephia. This would explain why there are several independent countries and why the territory is discontinuous. This also gives more liberty to the other french speaking countries around the OGF world. --Tparigo (talk) 22:35, 8 October 2018 (CEST)
Very well, that sounds good. Wherever the origin is, our area would still be the dominant Franquese land, despite not being the origin? --Thanks, Zekiel (talk) 23:15, 8 October 2018 (CEST)
Maybe Pays-Franquais? Also, I thought using la Francèsophonie was okay in French because you have la Lusophonie, l'Hispanophonie, l'Anglophonie, l'Italophonie, la Russophonie, la Germanophonie, and more. Maybe I should be spelling it la Francésophonie? --Chazeltine (talk) 07:01, 9 October 2018 (CEST)
