Define the history of Laȹnaki - optional mapping series

Postby Nuloerkun » Thu Oct 01, 2020 2:41 pm

Image

This is the current map of Laȹnaki, a large, remote island located in a temperate ocean. Its initial status:

Year: -2195 (Beginning of iron age)
Population: 0 (undiscovered as of yet)
Area: 6019 km^2
Highest point: 3315 m, in the dark red to the east.

Each subsequent post should focus on events occurring here, one year per post, possibly over only part of the territory. Maps may be included in any post if desired, with particular focus on main settlements and national boundaries. You are welcome to simply copy the image presented and edit it if you'd like.

- Founding, dissolution, division or merging of nations
- Conflicts, their results and any changes in national boundaries
- Leaders of nations, when they accede to the position and when their tenure ends
- Important policies
- Other main events that could influence the next year's events

Year -2194:

Day 55: A group of 155 people from a distant nation arrives at Laȹnaki, on the coast bordering the highest mountains in the east. Their nation is called Uɱa Iknlat.

Mmmm, the iron age? Looks a little old and boring, how about we fast forward to the Medieval Period or something?

Even if this was to remain the Iron Age, I'm pretty sure nations would exist by now.

And, it's an island. Doing an entire world would be impractical, I agree, but so is an island. How about a continent?

New Zealand wasn't settled until medieval times, so I think it's possible for nations not to exist until the first post. Maybe somewhere in between?

And yes, a small island (~1 km^2) usually remains entirely under control of one nation for a long time, and that would be boring. Many islands in the Mediterranean, Indonesia, and Polynesia of around 6000 km^2 have seen varied histories, however. Azgaar only allows 100k points, which isn't enough to simulate an entire continent; also, at that scale, the pixel limitation (<1800x1800 images) becomes prohibitive for NationStates itself. At continental scales, an entire nation can fall within one pixel.

True, it wasn't until some Polynesians discovered it. As stated earlier, deciding the history of an island is somewhat impractical.

If we will continue, I could add nations. What do you use to make your maps other than the Azgaar heightmap?

I haven't tried anything else, when I put in nations it's just drawing them on the map in Powerpoint or something.

Alright. Do we need to decide where we are fast forwarding to?

I don't think the specific number matters, we can just say -2195 is in the early medieval period or whatever (equivalent to ~600 AD in our world)

Also, "ɱ ȹ ȸ" represent /ŋ͡m k͡p g͡b/ in the language of Uɱa Iknlat.

Year -2193: Mholeostiww is formed by 50 murderers escaping their country. They also settle on the island's east coast. The Guang Hordes also reach the island from their own country and attempt to annex it for themselves.

Got a little lazy so I used Azgaar instead.

Spain:

year -2190

a mentally Ill adventurer, Crisostomo Valenzuela has been annoying the local governor of Zaragoza, so he (and a few other fellow nutjobs) were given a boat and told to "Sail away as far as possible, to find land for the King and bring Glory to the kingdom or whatever. They set sail for a land yet to be inhabitated by anyone. Then they arrived here, in this mysterious place after 3 years... The North-Western river was settled, by 17 mentally ill people... For the crown? The river was named after Crisostomo: Rió Cristelia. There are 7 women, half of which have actual hysteria, and 10 men, who are delusional, or have ADHD...

ya'll mind If I come in?

I'm relatively certain this thread will fail immediately.

That's why I decided to do nation threads instead of mapping ones.

Year -2189: Uɱa Iknlat and Mholeostiww both expand slightly. The Guang Hordes expand massively but skip some territories while doing it.

I have no idea if I'm allowed to do this, but which river is the northwestern one? That way I can make the map.

Maybe. We'll have to ask him, but that's the likeliest case so once I have time I'll edit the map.

-2188:

Uɱa Iknlat aligns more with the Meem side than the Anti-Meem side, and the division becomes more pronounced.

Ibknina I becomes leader of Uɱa Iknlat, and is in league with the Meems.

Day 202: Another wave of colonists arrives to supplement Uɱa Iknlat, totaling 284.

Oh, okay.

I could hold a vote between mapmakers for this thread to come under the Mholeostiww thread's control of being required to post there once, but most people aren't active. So, you technically don't have to post there.

Still, it's impractical to force your control onto another thread.

-2186:

Upon the Meems' defeat, Uɱa Iknlat serves as a refuge to those ejected in the process. Uɱa Iknlat expands further, into the peninsula to the east.



-2185: Ibknina I unexpectedly abandons Uɱa Iknlat, and sets up another nation called Numklat in the mountains to the northwest. Uɱa Iknlat is now ruled by a distant relative, Kinpa.

Population: 1,221

-2184: All that comes of the war is three isolated incidents, given that the total number of people involved is a mere 100. Given the distance between the Spanish colony and Numklat, no treaty or any sort of agreement is made either - the status quo returns.

-2183: Uɱa Iknlat becomes more like what the Meems were before their defeat.

Day 113: A mutual understanding between Meems and Anti-Meems develops, resulting in a more peaceful society on the eastern coast.

Days 200-255: Uɱa Iknlat expands further into the mountain regions, up to the drainage divide.

Population: 1,224

-2182: Random people leaving the Mholeostiww and Uɱa Iknlat territories found a new nation up in the highest parts of the mountains. They dismiss both Meem and Anti-Meem ideologies, and arbitrate several conflicts between the sides.
