@ClocktowerEchosI added a bunch and included some bits about your lands, not about your folk though.

Ooo, I know an Inkarnate map when I see one! Been using Wonderdraft myself, but damn if Inkarnate isn't the more user-friendly to use.

Haven't done a group RP in a long, long time, but I could give this a shot if you'll have me. Thinking of writing a semi-comic relief character who has a completely different (wrong) understanding as to what's going on due to language differences. My idea is that his people only very recently settled in the north-east (~within 50 years?) and were formerly nomadic sea peoples raiding the coast.

@DegenerateThree, Not to be a pest, but settling implies that displacement of other people. Are they at war with the locals?

Ah, sorry!

No, they're not. I was imagining something along the lines of the relationship between IRL Normans, Vikings, and Franks, where the Normans are Vikings who turned their allegiance over to the Franks.

By this analogy, my character would belong to a people who have cut off ties with their more warlike brethren to settle in the north-west and in return, they protect the waters around the area. This is probably doing some world-building in your world, so that's my bad. If that's not alright, just let me know and I can think of something else.

That's a pretty shoddy explanation, but in short, MC would be part of a subset of sea peoples who have chose to settle down but in doing so pretty much declared war on their own people on behalf of Dawnhilt.

This is going to require the GM's input, but it could be something Steinland has against the crown. That the good king gave some lands to the sea nomads in exchange for them protecting the shores from other raiders like Vikings in Normandy. The nomads asked for some land on the peninsula. Steinland objected. The King gave them a chance to prove themselves and once they did, he carved away and enclave and gave it to the sea nomads as rewards for service and defending the realm, making them directly vassals of the crown rather than Steinland.

Could be one of Karl's objectives, to get the land he believes was "stolen" from his family back by influencing the new king and maybe slandering the nomads.

Edit: ofc I post this literally a minute after the previous post lol

Looking at the map, if @ClocktowerEchos has his state north of Alycone but south of the mountains, it's not a stretch of the imagination to say that they originally owned regions north of the island (around the north-western corner). Those could be the bits cut off for MC's people.

@DegenerateThree I was under the impression that the area directly above me/the mountains was Steinland. Also, I just did a big update of my CS on the first page. They're sitting on what is effectively worthless land that no one else wants and no one else has conquered because any possible reward wouldn't be worth the fighting. The most I really see House Amberclad ever getting is maybe like a majority of the mountains and that's it. They're not expansionist because most of the time they can't actually afford large scale armies to take things over.

Ah, bugger. That's entirely my bad.

No worries! I can shift my character elsewhere, maybe north-east if there's no one there. So long as it's a coastal region, it'll do.

Hey everyone, sorry for not responding sooner. I've fallen a bit under the weather lately with a lasting migraine of sorts but am slowly recovering!

Anyway, wow! So many great ideas and applications already. @Pagemaster and @ClocktowerEchos, I have updated the map to include your regions (hopefully they are in the correct spot(s)). If you'd like them moved, or if the cities/townships need to be moved, please let me know. I love both your applications by the way, definitely makes for some interesting dynamics: tensions of civil wars in Dawnhilt's west and Steinfield's population thinking itself 'better' than Wynterwood ... pfft, what nonsense! ;) I love it!!

I'll add more here soon as I continue to 'assess?', but glad to have you both on board.

*I forgot to mark the cities in Steinfield with the little black dots, I'll do so next time I edit it.



And as for @DegenerateThree, that sounds like a great idea. Perhaps Kieran's grandfather or something granted your people a slice of Dawnhilt's land long ago in exchange for military aid, resources, loyalty, etc. despite protest from the broader population. This could make for an instance of tension still present in Dawnhilt's modern political climate - and may give a reason for wanting a character to marry the crown Prince, perhaps as a way of showing unity? Up to you :) You're most welcome to pick any spot that's free (according to the now updated map) and if you were wanting it where another region already is you'll have to ask that roleplayer specifically if you can sap some of their land haha.

And yes, I'm making the map through inkarnate! I'll admit, I'm not very good at it but the interface is very user friendly :)

@Wavy Wallaby Myremarke is in the right place (maybe no stretching as far out to the other mountains as it is right now) although I'm still personally on the fence about Boatmurder being considered a "port" since I wrote it more as an over-glorified fishing village lol.

I'll be interested in seeing in how people are going to think of Myremarke now that its getting "uppity".

@ClocktowerEchos Awesome. I'll enclose the top so it doesn't extend all the way to those mountains on the right and I'll replace the ship with a dock/fishing pier instead :)

EDIT: Alright, got it to an acceptable state at last.

@Wavy Wallaby Also, I forgot to mention earlier, but I think that's a pretty good map for a start on Inkarnate. I remember I had troubles with using the ground paints when making biomes. It's tough trying to make them segue into one another as naturally as possible.

So I don't mean to sound impatient or rude, but how many players are we looking for to start this proper @Wavy Wallaby?

If we're still wanting some more, you could try to post another int check in like general or advanced sections. Can even say that they don't have to make a nation/kingdom and get help from another member who can do that, they just need to make a character. I know that for some people, making a nation is a big difference than making a character that they just don't feel as comfortable with.

I second this notion, though on the other hand it might defeat the purpose of this being an NRP.

Still, I world build as a hobby so I don't mind filling up the world if need be with background nations, then if anyone wants to use them they're free to do so.

That's the idea behind the "you make a character and someone else can help make a domain". People who NRP tend to be more active world builders and don't find it as daunting. Basically lowering the barrier to entry as instead of wondering how to make both a fleshed out character and country, its just a character.

Hmm.. This might be interesting. I'll put something together this weekend.

Edit: Still working. Might be another day or so until I have everything finalized.
