The Map of Rushmore (Rushmore Only)

Postby Astograth » Sun Mar 29, 2020 2:29 pm

This thread will be dedicated to administering the map of the region of Rushmore. We're an NS Sports based region, so if you like the cut of our jib, come say hi in NS Sports!

The rules will remain largely the same as when the Rushmore Institute of Cartography was based in Volonovsk, Polar Islandstates, having relocated to Urbizania, Astograth.

MAP CLAIM RULES
The following rules are open to discussion and change.

Eligibility
1. To be eligible to make a claim on the map, the nation in question must have been in Rushmore for at least a continuous month (30 days).
2. To be eligible to make a claim on the map, the nation in question must have displayed a healthy proficiency for RP. Since Rushmore is mainly an NS Sports region this could take the form of a competent league post, a series of RPs in a tournament, or things of that sort. If not sports-oriented, the nation in question must have displayed a healthy proficiency for Rushmori RP, e.g. active participation in the CRC, many IC posts on the RMB, International Incidents RP which involve Rushmore, etc.
3. The above also applies to puppets/reincarnations of old nations of note. There may be more leeway in the case of the latter.

What To Do
1. All map claims must be made in this thread. No post, no map claim. (Claims/requests that were made prior to this thread are still valid)
2. All map claims should include a passage indicating where-abouts on the map you want to be, as well as any other features required: a teapot shaped border, a narrow strip of coast, etc. Claims may include a list of cities, with their locations, and must include a capital city.
3. Don't hog land. Claims should not be larger than the approximate area of Rhodesiah.
4. Include the word 'banana' as the first word of your claim, so I know you've read the rules, or at least made an attempt to.

Conventions
1. Pretty much anything can be done regarding borders/coastlines etc. If it's grey space, it's ripe for editing slightly if you'd like it so.
2. The exception to this being where the requested editing of grey space would severely affect the IC geographical situation of an existing nation on the map. For example, editing a huge lake just off their western border, where once was RP'd mountains.
3. By taking a spot next to grey space, you are tacitly agreeing to the idea of someone moving into that space at some point in the future, even if it's a user you're not fond of.
4. Naming rights of water features (lakes, seas) fall to the first nation to border them. If an existing water feature wants to get named or change said name, all active nations bordering it must agree to the new name.
5. Nations' map claims will not be changed in the mupdate just after said nations first appear, unless a fault or error lies with the cartographer. This is intended to avoid constant tinkering.
6. Even if they all meet the eligibility criteria, one new nation per user per mupdate.
7. Nations that have Ceased to Exist may be subject to removal, though traditionally Rushmore has limited this to nations of very little historical or cultural impact upon the region. Nations can always request that they be removed from the map.

So, I actually drew this up and can send you a file (let me know what program) if it's easier (and I'm allowed in- I was the WA delegate for 2 years but I've also been back for...under a week...) but I hope this makes things easier.

Image

I had 9 cities before, now I cut it down to 7- Île des Souris is now "Tchérec", there's some new islands nearby- they don't have to be very big and we've also claimed that open space near us so we have a direct border with Erathore (which ethnically influenced this region) and New Sirain.

Here is my map claim. The area is to the eastern border of the map, near where Taeshan and Savojarna are.

Image

I request that a river goes from the lake pass the capital city Dai Hoa and out to the ocean northeast of the capital.

Thank you.

My bad for not informing this earlier, but that area down to Szavoda will be occupied by Pridnestrovia, in accordance with the claim they posted in the previous map thread nearly three years ago. This is the only change not in this thread, so any other grey area is fine for claiming.

Here is my updated map claim in a different location. I made some changes to the coastline. Hope that is ok.

Image

I request a small lake within my border, in the northeast anywhere between the capital Dai Hoa and the border with Cassadaigua. From there I want a river flowing southwest through the capital and out to the sea in the southwest.

Thank you.

2) Alfjord
3) Naversund
4) Kanneton
5) Bärø
6) Umber
7) Wingipeg
8. any of the others

And please delete Karditan from the map. Up to your if you want to sink the island entirely (I might be in favor of that, always thought I made a mistake making it an island, looks a bit out of place)

Rushmore Map Update 16
Link

Previous map: link

Changelog:
- Added Pridnestrovia, Saintland, Mavinet.
- Darkened Szavoda to differentiate from Pridnestrovia.
- Changed Cotdelapoms to Donnacona, changed borders, added islands. Deleted Bellefeuille on Tchérec/Île des Souris as Abk. are not on the map anymore.
- Changed Falcus to Falkyr, changed cities, changed Helving territory to Eura.
- Deleted Karditan + island they were on.

Migrating the map between the different programmes PIS and I use may have introduced some issues (mostly layering), so please point out any mistakes.

Bananas! B-A-N-A-N-A-S! (okay, I know it's supposed to be just Banana ;) )

I'd like this black-outlined island below (i.e. ignore the smaller ones on the bottom left) to be placed southeast of Nouvelle Angouleme, please.

Image


It being about the size of Rio Oscuro should be good. If it cuts through the time line (and I imagine that to be the case), I'd appreciate if you alter the lines so that the entire island falls within Endemien time. The red box is the location of the nation's capital, Monterra. In case you need it, the body of water in the middle of the island is Lake Altan.

Let me know if you need additional info, thanks in advance!

Alright so here's the "Official Rushmori Map" Map of Southwest Eastnorth

Image

Here's the "Official SWEN Map" Map of Southwest Eastnorth

Image

Southwest Eastnorth is a fairly young nation formed in 1975 after a great migration of Tonissians escaping the homeland founded their own nation between QPeMA and Antoletia. As of now Official stance is that their are no borders aside from the pre-existing ones with legacy nations Antoletia and QPeMA. When the interior has been explored enough, then SWEN will determine their nations true borders. But alas the Cartogrophy department needed a "set border" and thats what the fisrt map is *

Banana.

Electrum has already requested some changes to the Eura-Electrum border. However the big change in the region is that the Republic of Sameba now ceases to be - its former territory, including the Uke Islands (between Olastor and Azerxurade) is now part of Eura. Please could you make the following changes within the borders of this enlarged Eura/Sameba:

- The "Sameba" name removed from the map and Sameba turned Euran blue, with the border between the two removed.
- Samebus changed from capital city to normal city, as its lost its status as a capital city of a sovereign state.
- Balleck to be added as a city (just northeast of Aspel and southwest of Brega, on the leftmost of the two coastal headlands jutting into Aspel Bay).
- Rivet to be removed as a named city from the map. Formerly a megacity with a massive urban conurbation home to nearly thirty million people, it has been devastated by the years of war with Eura, the battle for the city, its occupation, mass abandonment, population displacement and collapse in civil society since. Rivet does still exist with a population of millions but by Eura/Sameba standards it is not a major city any more.
- The following cities to be added in "Eura major": Callodown (just above the "E" in Eura), Usmer (west of Ulsa on the banks of the river Holden), Sword (just southeast of Bastion) and Suttonville (southwest of Spartangrad).

If it would help I can mark these on a version of the map.

Peach (out of bananas)

Tikariot would like to move into a nice piece of real estate on the south side of the Kytler Peninsula thing, between the Kytler Peninsulae and their little exclave down there.

The map is as follows with the capitals of the provinces (Port Rhovanyon is the country's capital). Also the body of water that Tikariot will be coastally facing is yet unnamed, so I shall dub it the Xandrian Sea.

Map is as here follows, the coast line is uncannily close to what is already there (you'd just have to tilt the map a little to the right! Graintfjall will eventually move in to the north of me, so there might be a lake appearing along the border once he does, but we still have to hash out the details there.

Image

Addendum: Image

Lake is for Graintkariot border purposes, but I did not want to have to redo the big map.

Yuezhou would like an island chain with the below outline (ignore the province borders) in the below location (southwest of where Tikariot is planning on locating), such that the eastern tip of Jiangdong covers the intesrection between the four lines in the middle of this region. Most important cities are (in order) Yincheng [capital], Nangang, Beian, Jiangdong, Mükiachou, and Xihaishi. Let me know if I can clarify anything (the handwriting is a bit sloppy).

Bananas. Please excuse the lateness and shittiness.

Main requests:
  • Nation name: Græntfjall
  • Capital city: Háttmark
  • Odinsfluss is the main river. Tikariot has agreed that its source can be in his country.
  • Border with Tikariot and northern coast. This does make my claim on the larger side (though still within the limit, I believe) but I am happy if you want to move the northern coastline down to make my landmass smaller.
  • Lake Viljan is shared between Tikariot and me; he has agreed to this.
  • I have no preference as to whether I border KP and Weatherdon. If not it leaves thin slivers which may be ideal, but as I don't think either nation is actively RPing it doesn't matter to me. Whatever is easiest for you.
  • Small northern exclave on the north side of the Komodo Channel.

Here is my map claim.

Image

Snuggled between Tikariot, Graentfjall, and Weatherdon. All the red in that area is Nyowani Kitara.

Nation name: People's Republic of Nyowani Kitara
Capital city: Dewayo
Other major cities: Karora, Inhalo, and Port Viljan

Obviously, agree to everything that was put in place by the region's active RPers (Tikariot and Graentfjall), especially regarding Lake Viljan. I guess I'd be the third nation sharing it. I've spoken to them both about it, they seem to be fine with it.

And lastly, I guess I technically haven't demonstrated a proficiency for sports RP with this puppet yet, but I will be able to do so shortly in the upcoming Copa Rushmori. This is a puppet of Banija, so if you want something now you can use that I guess.

I am transitioning the "main nationship" (or if there is a word) of NS team sports from Filindostan to Hispinas (f/k/a Hispania y Filipinas). As the nation is already resides in Rushmore for more than a month and is currently participating in the current edition of the IBC. I would like to request a spot in the Rushmori map and I believe to have met the criteria for a map claim.

Claim Image:

Contrary to the claim map, please include the below cities (kindly refer to the second image for approximate points):
1. Mandrid (capital)
2. Ciudad de Cebuenas (or simply Cebuenas)
3. Punta de Malklan
4. Vallezul (ignore the value in the parenthesis)
5. Vigano
6. Piedramarilla

Should you have any queries, please TG me or DM me on Discord. Thanks!

Yellow-long fruit.

Because there is nothing a mupdater likes like a bit of poorly-drawn pixelated mapwork.
The bit below should fit to the south of a claim higher above by Nyowani Kitara. You might notice that I've changed the coastline quite a bit, I hope that is no problem.

Image

As it is a fairly small nation (you can see the orange band from the regional border in the screenshot), only the capital suffices.
San Ortelio, your favorite pseudo-Italian, coastal microstate. Less than half a million inhabitants who stand for a rich culture, are governed
by an delicate yet marvellously balanced system and remain economically viable due to fishing and funky tax laws.
But enough about us. Come vai?

I'm afraid you need to review the Eligibity section of the rules - being in Rushmore for 30 days and generally taking part in either the Rushmori or NS Sports community. To answer your question yes, that island could be added, though you'd have to specify what you mean by tropics since there's no defined equator.

Qzvarkian Qaz wrote:we do plan on entering a few sports things locally if the gods of Rushmore will it. Currently trying Lacrosse.

I'll be keeping an eye on how that goes, since QQZ have really only posted rosters and league tables so far.

The claims by Nyowani Kitara, Hispinas, Norrhem and San Ortelio are accepted, but it's unlikely I'll have time for an update before February.
