    I think what he means is a map of say, where all the gold, iron and silver are.

    Lemme an example. Japan is not very rich in resources, so during ww2, they had to go elsewhere to provide their military/industrial force with the needed materials such as oil, iron, rubber, etc. This motivated their conquest of Malaya, the Philippines, and the Dutch East Indies.
    Another example would be that Kazakhstan has large amounts of uranium or where the middle east has a lot of oil or that india has a lot of gems and jewels.

    The point I'm trying to make though is that resources will politically motivate certain countries to a specific action, such as an invasion or vassalization, or deciding who's rich and who is not. Perhaps making a map of natural resources would be good, especially since so few resources are actually capable of being used in the 'ancient' era of the Tellurus world.

    To be sincere, the nations outside of the "center", like the ones in the East, the Sea of Ashufe and the peoples in the extreme west

    What are your plans for the inter-continental people of Hatar in the Komis Valley, as well as the tundra peoples in Komsala?

    I've made it a goal to have every country have at least a few events happen in it so you'll be in luck.

    As of the current year of the TL, they're still tribes but things will eventually happen there as civilization expands. Every dog has it's day. :p

    So what I'm currently doing besides from updating all the maps is making a list of rulers for most of the pivotal nations.

    Here are the ones I've finished:
    Kyngir
    Narrak
    Kadimar
    Sutarba
    Knoas
    Mukania
    Tyhrrus
    Qarnenak
    Esirta
    Haxamanids
    Argaeas
    Apamaeans
    Karulhanids
    Xin/Tanshuai

    And here are the ones I plan on doing as well
    Tymria - FINISHED
    Neathuq (possibly) - FINISHED? very little to draw inspiration from.
    Nasenites
    Semaron
    Fornestian Republic (spoilers ;) )
    Arthacesids - FINISHED
    Rasan
    Adina
    Shudisha (also spoilers)
    Laotong/Qintong

    Edit: Also, most of the geographical features in Equatoria will be getting renamed.

    hmmm that large red nation directly at the end seems like some sort of Rome especially since it seems to be spreading by beating back other smaller empire and tribes. (Also because most people portray Rome or Rome Like nations on a map as a dark-ish red)

    You would not be wrong if you made that assumption. It's wont be exactly like Rome though, I'll give a few twists.
