Ola, Kalh79! Achei engraçado que o presidente de Castellán se chama "Eduardo Campos". Este nome é o mesmo do candidato a presidência do Brasil que morreu num desastre aéreo durante a campanha eleitoral, em 2014. Parecia ser honesto... Eduardo Campos na Wikipedia -- BMSOUZA (talk) 11:32, 20 August 2015 (CEST)

Hola BMSOUZA!! Although I didn't know Eduardo Campos (Brazilian ), may be his reincarnation in OGF.--Kalh79 (talk) 12:12, 20 August 2015 (CEST)
Hahaha!!! May be! :-P -- BMSOUZA (talk) 12:34, 20 August 2015 (CEST)

I really like the way you use the Eganian civilization influence for your history :-) it gives me ideas for Egani's history as an equivalent of ancient Greece. Modern Eganian language is different from modern greek, but it is close to it. But Eganian language is based on ancient greek, so it would be like a cousin-language of greek if it would have existed in real europe.

It would also be interesting for my country to have Castellanese community in some Eganian city, and give historical reasons to it. -- Clik (talk) 3 December 2015

Glad you like, my idea is that in the ancient Egani (1000-700 BC) the Eganian people was a great traders, in Castellan they traded mainly with the ancient cultures as Doirans, Iruneses, Caolians and Tolosanians. Through trade also they expanded the Eganian culture, religion and language. Something similar to the story of the real world between Spain and Greece.
I like your idea for your country to have Castellanese community, because they are neighboring countries, it should determine what caused their migration to Egani.--Kalh79 (talk) 10:18, 4 December 2015 (CET)

Conquistadores in Asperic Ocean?

Hola Kalh79. Tengo algunas preguntas sobre 'conquistadores', estaría muy agradecido si pudiera ayudarme responderlas: in my country Udenarrat's history, I would find it really useful if there had been a couple of invasion attempts by strong Ulethan nations, e.g. Castellán. The first would have happened about 1305, the second about 1530 (there could have been other ones too, but I would like to include both those dates as significant events in Udenarrat's history). Both of the attempts would have been, sadly for Castellán, unsuccessful - and as a result Udenarrat became known as 'La Isla Sauvaje'. Would this be ok with you? Following on from this, and having been in contact with User Olufsen in the neighbouring territory to me, Wenesinia, could it be possible that these attempts to claim Udenarrat led to Castellánese conquests in Wenesinia? - Olufsen is looking to have Spanish speakers in the western part of that country. Gracias --Udilugbuldigu (talk) 22:26, 8 December 2015 (CET)

Hola Udilugbuldigu, it's very interesting what you propose, because, as I said my idea to other users, my idea is that between 1400 and 1470 the Castellanese Empire expands into Tarephia and Antarephia colonizing Latina, Paxtar (for example) and other countries of those continents , from 1480-1550 through Asperic Ocean to Archanta, Udenerrat and Wenesinia could be the first territories to conquer other territories in Archanta later. In my opinion, the first date 1305 is too early, but we could set a date between 1480-1550. What do you think?--Kalh79 (talk) 23:10, 8 December 2015 (CET)
1480 is ok for me for a first landing, and I'd stick with 1530 for second. If there was a chance of earlier contact - maybe a report of some islands from a passing ship that didn't actually land - that would help me with some of the historical back story in Udenarrat. For Wenesinia and actual colonization, see what User:Olufsen says - I think the best way would be for you to message him directly as he's not done much wiki yet. --Udilugbuldigu (talk) 23:28, 8 December 2015 (CET)
Ok, I agree with your proposal about a report of some islands from a passing ship. I message Olufsen to know his opinion.--Kalh79 (talk) 23:39, 8 December 2015 (CET)

Castellán Empire

Hello - can between 1500 and 1530 be a king named Fernando (may be the III or IV or so)? I need a king, who has set some points in the old town of Latina (Cidudad) in the latinian colony. Thanks --Histor (talk) 22:06, 4 March 2016 (CET)

Of course, I have thought that between 1497 and 1544 the Castellanese king was Fernando III. I hope that it will be useful to develop the history of Latina. --Kalh79 (talk) 14:09, 5 March 2016 (CET)
Thanks - I will work with --Histor (talk) 18:20, 5 March 2016 (CET)
Is it o.k. for you, that this king Fernando III himself visit the colony of Latina 1510 and visited the Fort of Inca in that year? Will give my new town Inca some historic background. --Histor (talk) 20:20, 22 April 2016 (CEST)

Hello - what is your meaning to this? --Histor (talk) 21:31, 26 May 2016 (CEST)

@Histor sorry for not answering, as for the visit of Fernando III to the colony of Latina, no problem, I think it's a great idea. I'll remember to edit the history of Castellan.--Kalh79 (talk) 22:58, 26 May 2016 (CEST)

Geography Castellán Sea

Castellan Sea Geog.png

Above is suggested collaborative edits to address geography issues that arise from the formation of this sea. My suggestion is to move the Takora river to the northeast into the Sweetwater valley with headwaters near Dagazan. The western segment of the Takora would be renamed and travel southeastward to the new sea. A new middle section of rivers will meander from the central part of West Takora passing by Agua Dulce then heading southwestward to the new sea. Deos Canyon will be redrawn to a desert mountain canyon and will serve as headwaters for the new meandering desert river in the central. Alama Desert will be enlarged.

Thoughts --Indyroads (talk) 04:35, 2 November 2019 (CET)

Funnily enough I was going to propose something similar to you both these days. As the geography of central West Uletha is going to change, I had the idea of the enlarged Pretanic Lake naturally draining into the 'Castellan Sea' through a big river whose end would correspond to the left river on the image. That way the historic presence of the Mazanic and Franquese cultures in Tarephia could be explained. —Stjur (talkOGF) 10:57, 2 November 2019 (CET)
Shall we talk this on the Ulethan page or smth? I also thought of changing the Alam desert sea and cooperate with you on the hydrology in the Antigoan region.--Happy mapping and God blesses you, ZK (talk) 11:04, 2 November 2019 (CET)
Looks like the Castellan Sea is moving forward. Kalh79 messaged me stating "I have re-edited the coast of Castellán, I have decided to create the sea that I eliminated yesterday. I have thought about refining the geography of the area (mountains, rivers, valleys, etc.), according to what you proposed to me. What do you think??" and I responded "Yes I am in favor of that. Its a bold change but I think it makes sense and will allow me to use the West Takora terrotory differently. I am proposing moving DIOS CANYON to the new river that will flow southwest from Canyon City cutting through those mountains and then traversing to the sea from there."
Kalh79 I have proposed to Stjur to create an inland sea in Mazan, as it would affect the geography of Takora I would like to know your opinion. Our countries would be separated by the new sea, but it would imply new perspectives, it would even give up part of my territory in order for your country to have access to the new sea, to give more realism.
Indyroads I am not sure of the sea being that large. I really like the canyon alternative better. the river canyon can be very deep even navigable if neded to allow ocean transit. OI like the idea of the lake better than the sea extending up that far especially considering that the territory of mazan is higher in elevation and some of it may be in a great basin of sorts. Stjur what are your thoughts.
I personally am also in favor of a river instead of a sea or a chain of seas connecting the Pretanic Lake with the wide ocean, however many users are against a river connection. I will present the situation and the proposals to fix it in an article when I'll have time.—Stjur (talkOGF) 23:44, 4 November 2019 (CET)
Chain of seas or great lakes is the worst idea here. River is better and more natural. But it doesn't mean it is a logical explanation of Franqueterre as a naval power. Except for political reasons mentioned earlier, there is technical limit which probably closes this solution. Since Colombian times river ships and these which travel overseas differ in immersion depth (to protect the ship from falling over during heavy storms). In ships travelling to the outer seas it is much higher, which makes them impossible to be used on the rivers. That means even if we overthrow the political limits, the Franquese may ship only in rivers and along the shores which is not enough during colonial age. Honestly the best solution is to move Franqueterre to southern Uletha (like UL131) or create a sea between Kalm and Andy's countries. --Rüstem Paşa Discussion 13:17, 5 November 2019 (CET)
