The Great LandGrab (Large Image)



  • Well, It seems that since I made the map of the Cytherian planet, I've started designing cultures for the various areas with little thought to the fact that others may have wanted to introduce new cutures and races. Therefore, I present a map to you of areas that presently have no culture assigned to them.

    You may now claim the remaining areas, on these conditions -
    (1) You will design a culture for you're area.
    (2) You're culture will not be 'silly', it will be a well thought out and constructed afair.

    Here is the map:

    To place your claim, just post a note saying you claim area #, where # is the number of the area you wish to claim. Areas are represented by flags, white flags with numbers are unclaimed.

    Key to Flags -
    B - Bryce
    C - cache22
    m - Magpie
    A - Avatara
    K - iKaterei
    I - IdiotSavant
    L - Luke
    S - Slayer

  • I think I'll take area 7, maybe. Bryce, can you give me some sort of sense of proportion?

  • I'd like to claim an area for the Elemence, but there's just one problem- Vera is located on the mainland. (Cythera -does- have a mainland, doesn't it? I mean, it's an island.)

    Although I have an idea that I might use... Can you hold #8 for me?

    Nope. Cythera is an island, yes - but it's located in some kind of dimensional rift, with strict boundaries, ending in the Ethereal Void. The small area of sea around Cythera is populated with islands, but nothing that could be classed as a mainland. What might exist beyond the void (assuming it has an end) nobody knows, since nobody's been able to get there.

    :redface: I'd forgotten about that area, Bryce! Hopefully, I'll be able to bend some brain cells in that direction in a few days.

  • Updated Picture to show new claims.
    Oh, and don't forget the sea territories. They are bound to contain islands of your design. :)

    Perhaps even a new, fairly small continent might be found there... just maybe :)

    Okay, you might wan't to read up on you're new property, check out the 'air-castle' TS in the archives. Not too much has been established about it, though, so you have an almost blank slate.

    Well, that could cause a slight problem. It would actually be good if nobody from Cythera had ever been there, but I mentioned ferazel being there. Ah well, it doesn't really matter that much.

    Ok, I know what I'm going to do with the land that I staked out. :) Not telling yet, though. Btw Bryce, the map wasn't updated- either that or my comp is borking.

  • Yeah, It's been updated, it just dosen't show on netscape. Open a new window, drag the map into the window, then reload from the new window.

  • I suppose I should claim something while I still can. I claim area 1, home of the undine, as I see things.

    Good, I'll read that. This is my first attempt at an original work about Cythera, so any background info about my island will be appreciated...

    Compare it in size to Cythera. I'd say you've got a little Maui sized thing there. Big enough for many cities, considering Tatrinas is not seen on that map (It is off the shore of the Northren Continet), and it contains several cities.

    It's kind of hard to tell, so it's mostly up to you to make the call, but it is a pretty big island - most islands are too small to show on that map, and are lopped together into sea territories.

  • I skimmed through the Air-Castle, didn't have time to read it all. Uh, maybe I'm missing something... exactly what is known about this island? Does it have a name? This isn't the island Gwydion or whoever came from, right?

    No, you can name it. Little is known about it, see below.

    Sadly, this island does bear the mark of having spawned Gwydion. :)
    Aside form that, all that is mentioned in the story is that a race of very low-tech tribespeople live there, the Balloon Crew had a confrontation with them after unintentionaly ruining part of the forest near where the tribe lived.

  • Is the largest island supposed to be Cythera?

    ------------------
    luck is beating the odds, bad luck is when they are the odds of having something bad happen to you.



  • No. The island with no flag in the upper left quarter is Cythera. It should be marked with a 'G' for Glenn Andreas, but I thought everyone knew that :)
