Hello everyone! A Walmingtonian presence at and around Tangier certainly strikes me as a worthwhile addition to our coalescing Mediterranean scene, and the territorial additions, as outlined, have my full approval. With Iberia foundering in a sea of violent religious fanaticism for, potentially, sev...

One very minor note, I had been hoping to include Madagascar as well in an expanded Basque state (albeit as a poorly-integrated colony), and drop Reunion in the process, though if there are any objections this is all, naturally, completely negotiable.

First of all, a hearty and unequivocal, albeit undoubtedly redundant, endorsement of Depkazia's return! An AMW without Chingiz can scarcely be imagined! (And he would probably agree!) Secondly, if there are no objections, I suppose I'll sign off on my proposed additions, though if it isn't too annoy...

To begin with, I'll happily sign off on E-P's proposed alterations. Secondly, as I've recently mentioned on discord, I'd like, if there are no objections, to add Madagascar and much of Morocco to Ezpanna. The Moroccan regions in question are: -L'Oriental: 2,314,346 people -Fes-Meknes: 4,236,892 peop...

For starters, as I still have very little idea of Basque-language grammar, maybe it would be safest to use Basque, or even Hispanian, as the adjective for now until I manage something better. Probably how the English-speaking nations would translate it in any case! Ian's outline of Iberian history l...

For now, I'm afraid, I have only a sketchy idea of what history might look like for Ezpanna, though there's a good chance it will resemble RL Spain's quite closely through 1000 ACE. Anything before 1500 is quite hazy indeed, though I tend to think there would have been some kind of quasi-unified ent...

To begin with, as for the Maluku Islands, I certainly didn't mean for this to cause any controversy, and as goes for any aspect of what I suppose I'll provisionally call Ezpanna , it is entirely negotiable. Again, like the French Southern and Antarctic Lands, my thinking here was that the Malukus we...

Hello everyone! Significant developments currently underway will obviously require a more detailed response than this one, though if it isn't too little to count I'd at the very least like to declare (undoubtedly an over-grand word!) my continued interest in AMW. Gandvik, it appears, has missed the ...

Hello, everyone! To begin with, I must apologize for disappearing for quite a while without prior notice, and although AMW is, clearly, moving along at what I hope no one is offended for me to call its geological pace, to echo Walmington/Dra-pol's sentiments at least I would like to keep TCB active ...

Just one very small note on the map, Gandvik is shown as having possession of Leningrad Oblast plus the City of Saint Petersburg, which to be entirely fair was not part of the original claim, though in all honesty I am increasingly drawn to the idea... Ultimately though the fact of the matter is tha...

I'm perfectly fine with TCB's proposed changes, and would have no problems relinquishing the rest of Belarus as long as you take Bryansk oblast as well. I don't think I could take the map's look otherwise. ;) And hey, everyone loves a long, narrow country, right? That would leave us with ~107,828,8...

Addressing, first, Walmingtonian comments on the future of Scandinavia, yes, you make a very good point regarding southern Sweden. What seems, on the map, like a fairly modest expansion would clearly take away a substantial proportion of Sweden's population and industry, so perhaps if we decide to d...

Hi everyone, Just a quick note, after a bit more thought, clear or otherwise, on the matter, I think I'd like to put a halt on re-adding Sweden and Norway. It seems like a mistake to eat up the last pieces of open territory in Europe when someone else could presumably place a very interesting new na...

No objections to the various additions discussed for Saint-Laurent and Britain, and an inexcusably belated endorsement for Kyr's new North American claim. Any state based in the southeastern part of the RL USA would, I think, make for a very interesting counterweight to a strongly left-leaning and (...

Hi everyone! Hmm, while I'd imagine that Gandvik would at the very least maintain an embassy in Saint-Laurent, whether or not diplomatic relations happen to be particularly strong or even all that friendly, I'm not quite sure where it would go. Probably in the embassy quarter, more or less? Probably...
