I've heard that German has fifty words for sausage. Now confirmed
Much like how Americans have over two hundred words for sandwich.
Well, if you would plan to eat all types of German sausages on a single day your doctor would have to assume a Wurst-case scenario for your cholesterol levels.
Yes. That was intentional.
But to ease the digestion have here now the booze map of France:
A map of the Solar System (distances not to scale) as it was known in 1846
I love the wildly out of proportion asteroids and comet. It would make a great pulp setting
So uh, not sure if this is the right place or format to post this in, but here we go:
Here's an archive of all the OTL maps I have saved - most of them are from 19th century atlases, and mostly focused on Europe, but I hope there's something in there that might be of use to some people!
I thought you might be interested in these.
What's the most up to date worlda map available?
This is the third map I made on Persian history and probably the one of my best work yet. Since someone requested me to make a map of the Achaemenid Empire, I thought to myself - "Why not?". So here you have it, The Empire at its peak.
If there's any historical errors or misdirection, just holler! But please post it here in order to be more organizable.
Webfound, endings of city/town/village names:
I don't know about the rest, but I read somewhere that the -ach(en) suffix is typical of places of Frankish origin. Similar reasoning were done with Thuringian, Celtic (In Nothhern Italy, all the places ending in -ago and -ate) and Saxon (I think the -hof thing, not sure). It would be interesting to see a similar map with place-names origins.
Not bad, but someone forgot -ingen. (Hint: In the SW.)
And now something new: The Native Americans before Columbus.
That map is wrong, and slightly problematic - what it actually shows is where the various nations lived when white people began to settle their lands. The Cheyenne, for instance, lived on the upper Mississippi as late as the mid-18th century, and their character was completely altered by the arrival of horses, their migration west to hunt buffalo and the spiritual revival that followed (notice how they're a massive geographic outlier in their language group?). By then, most of the tribes in New England and down the east coast had been driven extinct or close to it.
Libya in November 2018
Huh, seems like the GNA's making a comeback.
This is the clearest situation map of Libya I've seen in literally years. I forget which of the two governments is the UN-sanctioned one - they back Tobruk, right?
For those who want a sharper map: [Link]
Is that meant to be OTL? Because the borders of both Trondhjems len, Livonia, Ingria and Pomerania are off in that case.
Some of those place names might be somewhat anachronistic. Better ones might be Reval (Tallinn), Uleåborg (Oulu), Åbo (Turku) and Vasa (Vaasa). Egentliga Finland ("Finland Proper") would have been known simply as Finland at the time. Kiruna also did not exist yet.
Separate names with a comma.
