QUOTE

Officially Named Continents:
Yellow: Calania
Green: Verdena
Orange: Paripana
Red: (Terra) Foringana
Blue: Auzeria (final confirmation pending: alternatives Southhaven / Calyr / Kilian / Dionysius / Alexandria)

Currently Un-Named Continents With Suggestions:
Pink: Fish Island / Ellesmere / Devonia / Arrosia
Cyan: Westhaven / Ellesmere / Cyanea / Cilesta
White: Nothandryun / Bielica


So, we have:

Yellow: Calania
Green: Verdena
Orange: Paripana
Red: (Terra) Foringana
Blue: Auzeria
Cyan: Cyanea (by default as Sarzonia is the only resident)
Pink: Arrosia
White: Nothandryun

And we can add Vircæis, the landmass to the south of Luciterra containing Vephrall and Kura-Pelland.

For more suggestions or agreements with suggestions above, please do post.

I made a new landmass map with the eastern islands shown. Though there are actually five major regions within the orange area, I managed to restrain myself from placing them on the map, and you can look at the full map of the area if you want the individual names. tongue.gif

On the basis of over two years of RP history, I unilaterally name the orange “landmass” Paripana.

Edited so people know what the hell's going on here - Star.

I don't think Westhaven works as the name for the Teal landmass, considering it's in the Eastern part of the region. Easthaven or something like Esteria might work.
Sarzonia
It's all about the Navy.

I would have to object to any names denoting specific directions in them, as it is possible that not all nations subscribe to the same directional system of measurement.

Doesn’t that make the concept of a regional map impossible? tongue.gif

I'd like my continent (Red) to be called Terra Foringana. Has historical and cultural significance to Pacitalia - roughly translated, it means "Land of the Tall Palms" - I dunno whether SU could translate that to Conabi, but he could give it a try. And if he doesn't agree with this name - too bad. I was here first. tongue.gif

Perhaps just plain old Foringana, rather than a 'Terra' prefix which obviously means land/earth etc?

How about Dionysius for the Blue Continent. You could do worse, you know.

DAMN! I should've posted first in this thread. My hatred is rising.......

Seriously, though, I like that name. I can translate that into Conabi as:

Ootahaeth as "Tall Palm" or Ootahaeth Dhash "Nation of Tall Palm". Sorry, I'm having a hard time trying to remember what "Land" is in Conabi, so for now I'll just use nation or Dhash. smile.gif

Honestly, we should just name my continent Babylonia, because I am awesome.

I liked Canon, but that's too biblical.
