Update 17 | Info and the City of Karpathos

Sign in to follow this  



Today we'll be going on a little information highway into Posillipo. I'm going to try to explain some of this stuff about COFR's "New Gaea." Basically, it's a replacement for earth specifically for the need of more realistic role play, I realize some of you are like "How is a 'new' Earth realistic?" and to that I answer with this.. Most CJ unions require you to take up non important land or extremely small amounts of land on Earth to keep it realistic, but in COFR we realized that a bunch of random islands and taking tiny and big chuncks of land from real countries isn't realistic, also most people hate having tiny chunks of unwanted land... I mean they're unwanted for a reason right? So, at COFR we developed "New Gaea" so we can have normal sized countries and more realistic role play.

We developed high definition maps and then chose our land (realistically sized land) and set up our countries, now we still allow role play with "Non Gaean" nations like normal, just like you where on Earth, no tacky Sci-fi interspace travel and such, it just kinda happens. We've developed extremely realistic satellite composite images of "New Gaea" with the help of our extremely talented Marsh, these maps can be seen below! Currently we are looking for more countries to fill up our empty space, so if you'd like to join please contact me in a message on here, add me on skype "simfreak1998", or visit our site: http://www.cofr.darkbb.com/ and contact one of our government officials and they can help!

So, now to the dynamics of Posillipo. Posillipo is a partial monarchy, with two assemblies, the Senate and the House of Consuls. The Vasílissa, or Queen(or King in times of a male ruler), is the head of government and head of state of Posillipo. While the Vasílissa hold's most power over the government, the Senate and House of Consuls hold some important jobs. The official title of Posillipo is the "United Kingdom of Posillipo". The nation consists of 23 "Counties" which are the equivalent of a State or Province and 5 Commonwealths. Posillipo currently has a population of 250 Million people. 

Now time for maps! 

First up, a map of New Gaea showing all the nations and their land claims. Make sure you click for full size. 


That map has one problem, the Joli Islands have been purchased by Posillipo and are now called the Marin Islands.

Great update! Those night shots are amazing! I actually moved my COFR country (Iryllian Federation) to this map.
Saathoff just needs to add it... It's right beside Oblast Of Ostrelaka on the Perunia Island. I really hope the area I chose is a temperate climate on the satellite image. :)
