Well, the goal is several-fold, but one part is to sort of bring together as much fanon as possible into a contiguous whole (with maps and notes), and maybe (eventually) a replacement GAZ11. Maybe. (I envision it as a new document with a lot of detail, plus themes/patches for alternate takes on parts of it.) Years away, at best
So, thanks for sharing your information so it could be incorporated
(And, if my e-mail archives are correct, thanks for giving me permission back at the end of 2009
I see that I haven't put in Helmsley, along the Amsorak River, so I'm assuming it wasn't in the maps as of when I last looked. It falls into the Lost Valley of Brethilad, so I'll let you two duke out how that fits today
(I think it would be near the ruins of Minas Brethil.)
Updated the Daelbar map
with the spelling changes and geographic changes. I haven't unconverted the ruins yet. Your map had "Felcross", but the description has "Fellcross". Given the derivation, I changed that, too.
I probably won't have time to update the Corunglain area map in the immediate future, but I went ahead and created a development thread
for it so that we can branch off this part of the discussion. This much back and forth for all of the individual regions would probably break the thread
(I should add: I didn't migrate your notes, figuring if you wanted to do that, you could/would.)
Regarding Otharos, my current notes are:Otharos
: An old village with an old name, originally contemporaneous with the other old settlements (Athenos, Akorros, Salonikos, Dolos), rebuilt by refugees after being razed during the humanoid invasion.
So, nothing that contradicts the above. With that thought, though, here's an idea: it could be an area which changed hands enough times that it is almost its own region -- locals split on the town name (it keeps being renamed when it changes hands), but just enough local pride and population divide that the bare plurality go with the traditional name. With unification, the tradition became emphasized. (I'm thinking of the myth of Alsace-Lorraine here, rather than the political and historical realities.) That would also mean it probably had a more Daelbarish name when Daelbar had claim on it, so it sticks out less. Given the other tarms, I could well see an Othartarm, Othatarm, or even Athatarm. (I've been assuming a long O, but a shorter O would allow for the latter.)
