Yggdrasil Map

Yggdrasil Map
Overall Map
Cartographer: Skothafjordur.


The Yggdrasil Map is the official current repository of information, claims, and discussion on the current map of Yggdrasil. The map's primary function is to give an easy way to interact between nations in the same region when dealing with roleplay. Yggdrasil currently has one map. The map is 800,000,000 square kilometers, with each pixel equaling 400 square kilometers

Rules:
  • Composition: Try to make your claim look interesting. Roughly jagged boundaries often flank mountain ranges, rivers, and other geographic features that may have historically marked the edges of nations. Conversely some modern nations (chiefly postcolonial republics) also have straight-line borders across a particular parallel, normally reached through agreement with neighbours upon decolonisation. Random curves without character are unusual, and equally too much detail can look out of place, so it's usually a bit of trial and error. Importantly, try not to stick to the coast, and instead use as much inland territory as you can. Coasts are often premium territory, and so "Chile" shaped nations that may landlock others are discouraged.
  • Land and Population: Since this is supposed to be a realistic roleplay, it'd be best to have your roleplay population set at a reasonable cap. Generally speaking, the more economically powerful your state is, the lower its population should be. This also depends on the amount of florins you pay for your claim.
  • Price: Each claim must be bought using the forum currency know as "florins". These can be acquired by posting on the forum or starting a thread. For the first claim every 16 pixels of the claim is 1 florin, and for each claim after the price doubles with a maximum of five claims (16:1, 8:1, 4:1, 2:1, 1:1). If you wish to claim a large territory but want to retain a strong economy you may pay 10 times the amount of the base price for the claim. When you make a claim please have your florins out of the bank so the cartographer can determine whether or not you can afford your claim.
  • Payment: You pay directly to the cartographer making your map whose name is displayed on top.
  • Tech Level: All nations in Yggdrasil whether they are in Modern Tech (MT), Postmodern Tech (PMT), or Fantasy Tech (FanT) will share one map.


Making a Claim:
  • Claim must have white (#FFFFFF), one pixel wide borders.
  • Claim must be coloured in red (#FF0000) to distinguish it from other plots.
  • Fill out and post this to make a claim:
    [b]Shortform name:[/b] <name>
    [b]Longform name:[/b] <title and name>
    [b]Map link:[/b] <link to claim on map>

    [b]Population:[/b] <population>
    [b]GDP (PPP) per capita:[/b] $<gdp per capita>
    [b]Physical alterations:[/b] <alterations made to map>

    Shortform name: Silvadus
    Longform name: The United Republic of Silvadus
    Tech level: PMT

Hey guys,

So I'm laying claim to the North. The frozen mountains, the land of always winter. We're a small country, with intelligent educated people, with a high GDP (pp) 

Shortform name: Tiku
Longform name: The Kingdom of Tiku
Tech level: FanT
Map link: Attached below
Government type: Scandinavian Liberal Paradise
Population: 10 Million
GDP (PPP) per capita: $59,990
Physical alterations: 1) The area where the Prime Meridian meets the Arctic circle line, I would like some more land there. Presently that junction lies on the sea and I would like some of my land on there. 2) Requesting islands to the left of the landmass. 

 

Thank you so much!!!
