Map Expansion

Post by Snudge » 2013-03-06

This has already passed senate, but I still want some input from the realm as I design the new expansion
What would you like to see land mass wise? Contients, large islands, Pangaea, an Archipelago
you get the idea, please consider this a discussion thread.
Also, inland bodies of water. Rivers and lakes?

Coastal areas, rivers, and islands seem to result in more dispute & war (in the game & in real life) than large swaths of inland territory. This is less relevant in Darkon, since we can cross mountains in winter without loss of life, but it still may play a role.

Make it as interesting as possible; huge rivers, lots & lots of coastline & islands...a few very difficult to reach areas. Think strategically. :D

I would love in land bodies of water with some nice land hexes in the middle of the river maybe a circle of land hexes surrounding the realm

Would like geographically appropriate territory. If we are expanding to the north as previously stated, it should be rocky and icy.

The mountains will be made of the softest, most cushiony marshmallows. The rivers- the most smooth and water soluble lubricant. The plains are to be crafted of Swedish Temper-pedic system beds and the air itself is to be filled with Albuterol. These are the Softlands, and none shall be sad. None shall be hurt of posterior. A land of promise, a land of niceties.

there's really no reason going up on a sheet of paper has to mean north and cold. it just depends on what map projection is used.

I always contended that the planet is HUGE!! We could be at the equator for all we know..

Wouldn't it be awesome to have a globe one day with the maps of other clubs on it :)

Ive always assumed we were a plane of existance, which is why we often find ourselves transported to other "planes" for adventures and such.

Nah...we are at the center of the Multiverse but not part of any...so all Universes have wormholes/portals/rifts that fall into Darkon...

I mean look at LOAP! They are obviously from 15th-17th century Earth.

I'll have some rough ideas sketched out at event if anyone is interested. Be aware these may have no bearing on what the land actually looks like. They are just rough ideas.

I think there should be rivers that can reach far inland. Areas that are designated river crossings. These would be hexes that could be occupied by either a boat or an army. Pretty much places that add strategic value be ause they could allow easier movement of armies. Both could be blockaded. River mouths by boats and "crossings" by either armies or boats.

Likewise, a 'road' could be build on one of these river hexes creating a bridge, no?

There's not a mechanic in the game for bridges in the roads rules that went in. We've never needed them before. But if people want to discuss it while staring at my drawings we certainly can.

COOL! I think this shall be fun and interesting. I am glad everyone is getting so involved in this.

Yes, I believe that our "plane" of Darkon is it's own little planet that is ever changing as it seems to be the place where many other universes/planes/whatever else you want to call it, unload creatures, people, and countries at random. We seem to be a Universal dumping ground for the weary and restless. This explanation works for me, that should satisfy the physical theorists and the magical theorists. Good Night gentlemen!
