Exploration and Discovery: a nation's Founding (CLOSED)

Postby Lancearc » Sat Jun 30, 2012 1:55 pm

Hey there guys. Now, before I get started I'd just like to say I'm not a complete newb :p (I've had nations since 2010, this one being my second puppet), though this nation is relatively new. I've been tossing around an RP idea in my head, one that would involve people Roleplaying as a group of the very first explorers to set foot on and map out new terrain of nations on NS. The first RP would involve the first explorers ever to set foot in the land known as modern day Lancearc. These explorers would be sent by the very first king of a new Kingdom that had arisen on the eastern most border of what is now Lancearc, the Pyiz Kingdom.

However, if the first RP goes well, I plan on turning this into a series of RPs that deal with the first explorers of many nations, of which I'll pick from the ranks of nations that join the RP. I don't have everything prepared yet, but if we have a decent amount of people than I'll have a map made immediately and get the IC up as soon as possible.

IC is up!

The Journey--What To Expect in Weather and Geography
Lancearc is a nation with only one side exposed to the water, it's eastern border. A large part of Lancearc is mountainous. The Anrel mountains are mainly in the center and south-southwest of the country. The Raeph mountains are located in the north of the country. Both ranges are home to an indigenous people known as the Bismis. It is a fine example of many varieties of a Mediterranean climate, though as altitudes rise with the mountains in the center and drop with the deserts east of the mountainous areas, they become extremely cold and hot. Northern coast and interior are mountainous with large areas of bordering plateaus, intermontane valleys, and rich coastal plains. The east is large, dry desert. It is also a long-forgotten part of the Roman Empire, and many ruins can be found.

The highest point in the land known as modern day Lancearc, Jir Taoim proved a great obstacle for the explorers sent by the Pyiz Kingdom. For one thing, it was the very first and arguably the toughest challenge the group of explorers had to face, and they were facing it early in the journey, which meant that many of their supplies would be depleted before they even got into the Unknown Regions proper. The temperature near the summit is also below zero degrees Fahrenheit, and wildlife and edible fauna is scarce upon the mountain. It is in the southwest of what is now Lancearc.


The Raeph Mountains are very geologically unstable and prone to numerous earthquakes within a span of five days. The most ever earthquakes including aftershocks recorded in this five day span referred to as the Bismis people as Eesny'l ezegitaetk or "Earth's Awakening" is 8 major earthquakes with up to 20 aftershocks. Periodic droughts also occur in many regions of the land.

Oh, and just to clarify, the year is 1595, since I didn't state anything about a year in the OP. So, right around when muskets were new.

Personality:

My App
Name: Jeff Wallace
Age: 32
Appearance: Brown eyes, coffee-colored thick hair, beard and moustache, tall with a light build, caucasian. He also wears a light chainmail-backed leather armor.
Occupation (before being chosen for exploration): Former guardsman for Toirle, a port town in the Pyiz Kingdom.
Weapons: two flintlock pistols and saber.
Short Bio: Being born to a poor mother and father who worked at the local stables in Toirle, Jeff grew up in the lower class for almost all of his life and as such has developed a humble side. His mother worked most of the time and his father was always there with her, so Jeff spent most of his time as a child with his tutor, whom his mother and father had spent almost all of their money to hire and make sure their son was raised to become a better off man than they were. He did, and at 24 he got a job with the guard in Toirle. He rose through the ranks slowly and surely, and eventually rose to lieutenant, just under the captain of the guard. He was chosen because of a recommendation by the guard captain, and his knowledge of the earth taught by his tutor in his childhood.
Personality: tough, honest and positive, though he can sometimes be something of a mean person whenever agitated.

Age: 29
Appearance:

Occupation (before being chosen for exploration): Blacksmith
Weapons: Musket, Short Sword
Short Bio: Josak grew up learning how to be a Blacksmith. He also grew up with a distinct like of the outdoors, always going out and hunting when he could get the chance. Being an apprentince gave him little time to hunt but he still found ways to do it, even if he had to sneak out. He mostly hunted with bows and spears. When he first could, he began to train with these new "Muskets".
Personality: Josak is a very cheery person, always one for a laugh. He can be quite serious, though, when that time comes.

And in the beginning, the OP said, 'Let there be IC!'

And there was IC.

We'll get started, wait for others to make apps so the journey can begin proper.

I'll have to think about this one, considering that in proper lore, no land exists off of Lancearc's coast that would be close enough to logically sail to the country from. For the time being, pending.

It's not a really big issue, though if you could change a few little things it'd be fine, like say coming from the southeast, where it connects to the rest of the continent.
