Map Thread XXII

I've been playing a lot of TNO recently and felt inspired to make a super-shattered America similar to Russia.View attachment 873618
Edited it a bit with some errors removed and some other small additions

So... This one's going to be pretty weird to explain... Or maybe not so much...

For some time I've had the whim of creating a Fantasy world. And I've been mostly failing at it to be frank... It's not that I don't have any idea about what I want, it's just that I'm a disorganized mess that's also unable to focus on one specific thing or idea long enough, which naturally doesn't help making everything coherent.

At one point, I wanted to make a map to help me a bit. And found out I have even less imagination than Games Workshop did when they created Warhammer Fantasy. For all the jokes of things like Naggaroth being Warhammer's Dark Elf Canada, at least you notice the differences. Me? I have a bad habit of trying a bit too much to stick to the geography of the nations I take inspirations from... to the point I went "might as well draw the borders on an actual Earth map..."

Then I discovered the Blue Marble project and found the data actually matched pretty well with the 8K map for me to mess around... At which point, combined with the earlier idea, I basically went "Fuck it, let's go."

TL, DR: This is basically just me messing around while playing a bit with elevation.

Had to split the map in 4 because it's too big otherwise. Color-schemed is supposed to be SUCK but I might have botched it...

In all honesty I'm not completely happy with how it turned out. Some parts of the geography I changed looks fucking ugly (special mention to Potato Madagascar). And there are areas where my borders feel random (The Sahara was a nightmare for me). Plus my imagination kinda got limited by my knowledge of history in some parts.

But it was still a good fun and I'd love to hear some thoughts and criticism about it.
 
Mennonite farmers would not set up their own republic. As long as they got freedom of religion and freedom from persecution, they would just be peaceful farmers who wouldn't even vote. Mennonites are congregationalist communitarians with no central authority.
It's kinda more like a 'Democratic' Steppe-Horde-esque kinda thing, where its only really a few military leaders in control

2005: The Islamic Emirate of Khorasan, formed as a merger between the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, the Islamic State of Pakistan, and the de facto independent Republic of Kashmir (1) in the year 2000.

2010: Its successor states, following the 2006-2007 NATO-EUTO (Eurasian Treaty Organisation)-India intervention into the regions, listed in alphabetical order as follows:
Balochistan (green), Gilgit-Baltistan (light green), Kashmir (gray), Shamal (blue), Pakhtunkhwa (maroon ), Punjab (dark green), Sindh (red).

Not shown: Taliban insurgency in Pakhtunkhwa, Islamic Front insurgency in Punjab, Islamist insurgencies in Kashmir and in other states, the autonomous State of Hazaristan in Shamal, de-facto Indian control over the foreign affairs of the new pro-Western government in Kashmir, the free-trade agreements made between the successor states, done due to international efforts to try and form an EU/NATO-esque alliance to counter Islamist militancy and to overall promote relations between them), and more...

(1) - I'm sort of thinking like a Chechnya-esque situation happened here.

THE MAGICAL COUNTRIES OF EUROPE

wFiMfqE.jpg

Based on Harry Potter's Wizarding World, this is my interpretation of the magical countries of Europe, based on the information we know. KEep in mind that Kodolstoretz does not have an official logo and the one imprinted on the map is simply a fan interpretation of one. Alongside the Big 4 Schools of Europe, I've added some minor schools of own making to rationalize magical schooling over so much cultures and populations. Alongside the map, some statistics about the Big 4 countries of Magical Europe are listed as well. Alongside, some majority wizarding towns/cities (barring the capitals, which have their magical sectors parallel to the muggle counterparts) in Europe. Obviously the ones outside of Europe are just interpretations. Azkaban and Nurmengard are represented as well.

Thoughts?

Honestly, that map looks good for me, I only occasionally read HP fan stuffs to be honest. Also, I never really cared for JKR's lore and worldbuilding anymore since she's...well...lacking so to say. Yeah. Honestly I only read 1 HP fanfic now, Harry and the Shipgirls.

Yeah. Despite flopping hard, at least the Fantastic Beasts series tried to worldbuild. Even though some of it was just plain idiotic, the qilin choosing the mugwump one like.
