I am beginning forum-side preparations for the Emperia AU, for which my map has been stolen by another group, so I find it prudent to post all of my preparations here instead :p
More will come in a little bit, but for now, here is my map and some other assorted things I have found.
Basic overview of the world WIP
Heimojenmaa, the northernmost land, a conglomerate of Kingdoms that have been battered together throughout history.
Bjørndalen, the northern kingdom of the Danes.
Kondarsland, the republic of the Kondars (Germans)
Anshan, the massive Persian republic, an industrial and political powerhouse, and controller of all trade in the strait.
More will be coming soon, at least as soon as I can get stuff together!
