Cat memes are great when a simple welcome back isn't good enough :lol:

great to see you back, I was worried about you, in fact had been thinking of dropping a PM to the forum heads and see if they had heard from you. Yeah I've been a busy beaver, finally beginning to see the end of the tunnel here. I haven't touched the maps since we talked last, just did some tweaking to the Averoignian map but true to form I've found another side project rabbit hole to disappear into.


I looked back at my horribly amateurish attempts to map out towns (Braastar, and Erendyl) and discovered that urban map making program. I tried the freeware version of it and wasn't quite up to working standards so ordered the pay for play version. I am likely moving to mapping the named towns, and villages on the map, as well as moving on to doing a map of Metro Glantri City, the whole of it not just the center shown on the Gaz3 map.

I do hope to start wrapping things up this year and then turn my head to putting it all together and PDF'ing the baby into what this all seems to have become.. a campaign supplement to Gaz3 as well as an expansion to it.

so with the completion of the unraveling of the d'Ambreville paradox pending any outside feedback or internal tweaks or improvements. moving on to the dedicated Glantrian Almanac. Doing up the pre Great War years at the moment which is adding in fandom events others had established, adding my own, and detailing Rad's moves prior to the outbreak of the war.

1000-1001 I did previously so now working on 1002-1005. 1002-1005 and then adding the broad strokes of WotI and filling in the details till I get to 1007 which if I've finished that gets imputed and if I haven't finished the Thar document that will be my cue to get back to cracking on that. Once that is done, back to the maps and writeups of the dominions bordering the broken lands (the only Gaz3 dominions I've yet to writeup) along with filling out the 1006 non canon dominions.

After that... we'll see.. The dominion writeups are all circa 1014. Yet since I started those, like 8 years ago, the addition of a dedicated Glantrian almanac up to (or perhaps including 1020) has come into play. either I'll go with getting all this put together and PDF'd it as is or go back through all the writeups and work in the events of the almanacs to the individual writeups and go with a 1020 themed work, rather than the originally planned 1014 work.

Dear Micky.
If you (ever) read this...
Know we have not forgotten you.
Your sudden dissapearance seems to bode nothing well
so I think my words here count for the most here...

"Whatever happened, we wish you the best and a good return"

Taken all your words into account, I am working on something I know you would like.

Best wishes, take care and take heed.
On all the paths, health andwisdom you'll need.

Some information I compiled and stored without sharing spawned from making the Ethengar NW map which In my opinion makes the work of Micky much more complete...Even if he's not here, his spirit brought a seed that still grows. All from the Fusion of Micky's information(see links below) and Betti's map

The map I created on this compiled source of Information.

most East Glantri)
I infused and used information from the following sources.
Tschernovodsk FPviewtopic.php?f=3&t=2331&start=25#p29427

Mongolia Viscountyviewtopic.php?f=3&t=2331&start=25#p29544

Additional information
Kaschgar (225) on the Trans- Boldavia Bramya Highway, is not the only Village in the east of Tschernovodsk FP.
The following additional villages exist too.
These are mostly small farming communities, often with a single constebulary, with 3 farmers/or magic adept citizens called in as back-up force. There is rarely anything of importance within these small villages.
Names are taken from Betti's Map, Population estimated . Extra information as by combination of Betti's map information and personal input, continuing Micky's information going north to south.

Rock Tower (55)Military keep to protect from further Ethengerian incursions


There are also several Hamlets. Settlements of less than 30 inhabitants.
These have rarely a name, and if mentioned they are often related to the "Hamlet of the family (insert family Head name)", for example "Hamlet of Oscar van Beuningen", these are not registered on the map.
Ruined/abandoned hamlets also exist, these have rarely a name, and even if they had such this is also not registered on the map.

Micky...if you read this or not....I hope you like it...it is done in your spirit :halo:

Thanx Greenbrier ;) ...Someone had to take the glove, and continue :geek: ...As I already worked with Micky, I know somewhat more on his work and intentions. And as my work overlaps many of his intended or existing regions I had to bring it up here too. :ugeek:
Probably more will come up later. :o

Yes I miss Micky too.. :( as if I have lost a faraway friend..hope the best for him too. :halo:
