    Some of the names are great (and I love the map), some I'm not so fond of, but hey it's your map.

    One thing I've tried to do when naming towns, etc. is to consider the people of the area and their heritage and what kind of language they might speak. If its say a "viking-like" background, maybe you try to lean a bit toward scandanavian-ish sounding names. If its more middle-eastern perhaps you loosely base it on arabic names.

    Just some ideas.

    Ur right about the heritage background. Right now I'm trying to put upt he story for the map soIt may help you guys tell me which names to change or upgrade to put on the map.

    For now just think about this:

    In the beginning, the human nation of ROAM where living in MOAB but htey had to flee once the plague started. Now MOAB is a undead region.

    Not bad...the fertility goddess could be Iridala, and the plague causing deity, Tykhoor, see the WIKI for more inf on these goddesses. They could also have local alias' if you prefer different names.

    Would you mind throwing a link to that on the wiki when you get time as well? There's a brand new Project Overview page that it'd go perfectly on.

    Here is the part1 (the Roam land) of my country in a pre-finish version.

    Read it, and then tell me what you think and what should be change.

    If put in a small description of every cities so if someone want to map them he will have an idea on where to start. They are all free game. Also the description is in most case subjective to what I thought at the moment of its creation but can be change.

    Also any correction on the text would be welcome, because I'm too tired right now to find any error on the text.

    NOTE: name for the ocean would be welcome

    Thank you,
    Alu.

    Map

    Here is the maybe final version of my whole land. I've just finish the undead county of Ash Coast. Tell me what you think about the new color and labeling of the towns. And tell me also If I made some errors of if you got an upgrade sugestion.

    The undead story and town description should follow in the next week.

    Since no one as post a comment about the human story, I guess its mean that it is good like that.


    Thanks,
    Alu.

    Fabulous. Gotta be the most colorful map in Ansium and I thought Neons was pretty vivid. I will update Ansium and also create a new region on the world map to contain Roam and make sure that I don't lose that nice bit.

    Thanks RR.

    The only thing missing would be a compass and a scale bar, but can some one give me the grid size I should use here, cause I can't figure the good one for all our maps.
