If someone has a question for me, please ask. Or if someone has a suggestion to Neberly, please tell me. You can write to me in dutch or english. --Antoon (talk) 21:01, 1 September 2014 (CEST)

I have a proposal

That Pretany colonized Neberly sometime in the middle ages. Out countries have very similar sounding saxon-like town names, and according to [1] this map you are the next logical step of colonization for Pretany. A kind of midieval colonization of sorts. Bhj867 (talk)

Also, Neberly is a lot closer to Pretany than it appears on the map. Because both places are so far north, the map projection exaggerates the distances. From Port Emporium to the westernmost part of Neberly is only some 2400km, about the same as Rome to Palestine. --Isleño (talk) 20:50, 5 September 2014 (CEST)
This could maybe work, but i still have some doubts. Not so much about colonization, as long as Neberly became independent at least 200 years ago. This to get some credibility for becoming a kingdom afterwards. As for the distance, over sea it's not that much but over land it is. Especially as i'm thinking about a great mountain range on my west and north borders, to explain the rivers flowing as they do now. Of course i know about the great Roman Empire, but that was mostly concentrated around the Mediterranean Sea, and i don't really see a logic ancient route from Pretany going eastwards. --Antoon (talk) 21:40, 5 September 2014 (CEST)
Inara which was an ancient empire that was in the area that is now Pretany held all of the major overland trade routes from western to eastern Uletha. Your country could have gained its independence after the fall of the inaran empire in 1370 AD. Read my history section of Flsg.jpg Pretany. The Inaran Nation CONTROLLED the trade routes eastward. Bhj867 (talk)
Alternatively, you could think of the settlers more like Vikings than Romans. The first 2/3 of the journey from Pretany could be by sea (around Dagelanden) and then there's a huge river (over 1 km wide in many places) which meanders through what looks like a very flat region all the way across UL088 and into UL085, where it comes within 130 km of Neberly's northern border. You could have mountains there if you want, separating the river basins, but they aren't necessary. You can definitely have a "continental divide" that isn't very hilly at all. --Isleño (talk) 23:31, 5 September 2014 (CEST)
The idea of becoming independent as early as 1370 seems good to me and also in being in some kind of trade route. On basis of the climate map there doesn't seem to be much agriculture land, perhaps some livestock. But my idea is there was some early industry in Neberly, for example foresting, paper, textile, early mining, armour, glass or pottery. As for the border between UL085/UL088 and Neberly, i want to stick to my original plan for having a mountain range. I already drew some height maps which i hope to show later. My idea was that people came from the east or south so i projected smaller hills or some kind of plateau in the south, so there is certainly room for some trading routes there. --Antoon (talk) 12:17, 7 September 2014 (CEST)

Neberly in UFA

Hey Antoon,

Zou je het goed vinden als Neberly lid word van de UFA? Dit is de voetbal bond van Uletha. Ik zou het heel erg waarderen :)

Hoi Niels,
Bedankt voor je verzoek en ja, ik heb Neberly daarnet toegevoegd aan het rijtje landen van UFA. Dit is misschien een beetje een late reactie, maar ik ben veel meer bezig met mapping dan dat ik in deze wiki artikelen bijwerk. Als je me nog eens wilt benaderen is het daarom makkelijker/sneller om dat via een bericht via de OGF-website te doen.
Groeten, Antoon (talk) 11:48, 3 April 2016 (CEST)
O, oke. In het vervolg zal ik je op die manier benaderen. In elk geval, bedankt voor het toevoegen. Groeten Niels20020 (talk) 12:08, 3 April 2016 (CEST)
