Gotha date; RH

The World of Gotha is a collaborative geofiction and worldbuilding project in a setting equally fantastic but different from that of our own world. Intended as an interactive setting for members to showcase their creativity and develop new skills, we enjoy exchanging ideas as well as learning about & discussing various topics as they relate to this project.

If you'd like to participate as a nation-holder, environment designer or observer, or you just want to learn more about Gotha then proceed to the Setting page of the Gothawiki ➦ and follow the arrows at the bottom of each page or send us a message at admin@worldofgotha.com

Also, if you're on Facebook stop by our Group.

  POLITICAL MAP UPDATE
Posted by: Brian von Gotha - 04-05-2015 12:29 AM - Replies (9)

Political map update in progress.

Any colonies without an informative wiki presence have been removed from the map. This doesn't mean they are gone. Below is a "report card" with information on player's colonies and why they are or are not on the map.

If you have been affected, please find the information about the corresponding colonies and create a wiki page for it. If you have no written information yet, you probably have an idea in your mind (mental picture) of what that colony is like. Without getting to hung up on it, try to put that idea into words and create a wiki presence for your colony. You can use it as a starting point to build onto at a later time.

At that point let it be known that you have completed something and it will be added back to the map.

The final map will be posted at the end of the thread and of course on the wiki.

AEDELAND
---------------------
Aevaland

Acheillo (city state)

Taurès - OK (needs redirect from taures)

Cykeria - OK

Búle - OK / make changes for size

Haniyyahs - convert / change from ithrieni page


AMBERIA
---------------------
New Amberia - OK

Ayatawantin - good desc on forum, need wiki presence

Carolina - good desc on forum, need wiki presence

Wanamian Islands - good desc on forum, need wiki presence

Austrasa - good desc on forum, need wiki presence

Ujjaiparam - good desc on forum, need wiki presence

Black Isles - good desc on forum, need wiki presence

Great Edwin’s Land / defacto hallis?? / mark as disputed


AURESIA

HALLIS
--------------------------
overall, lots of shells, some nice flags and maps..
Too much concern with individual territories seems to be bogging you down. Focus on first creating a wiki presence for an entire colony before delving deeper (ind. terr. level).

Alliance Islands - wiki shell / nice flag / no info

Great Edwins Land - wiki shell / nice flag / no info

Dominions of the Crownlands - wiki shell / nice flag & locator map / no info... you have some on the forum .. move it over Big Grin

Dominion of the Southlands - wiki shell for collective colony, some nice flags, no information

Arkandia - wiki shell / locator map / very little info

New Perch - wiki shell / no info

South ocean territories - OK

Bernardian Islands - wiki presence but needs work - BUT... an unapproved colony

Kuvimbic colonies - no wiki presence for any


VITTMARK
-----------------
Fisks - OK


THE BIND
------------------
Lotus Island - OK

  Request for Nation/Colony Summarys
Posted by: Brian von Gotha - 08-06-2013 09:42 PM - Replies (8)

To any player (especially those) with current approved colonies and/or dominions.

Please provide me with a list of your APPROVED colonial claims, along with the name of that grouping and whether it is a regular colony or company run entity (or dominion by special approval). Providing the year of acquisition is helpful if known, either for the entire group or individual territory. Please do not include a list of your colonial hopes and aspirations Wink

I will cross reference these for approval, but this will make it easier for me to complete the ledger and map more quickly, as rooting through threads with evolving colony proposals is confusing and time consuming. Many of these threads, after realizing player conflicts or changes in direction from the original requests, end without a clear statement of what was actually approved.

If there is a known out-of-game (OOG) conflict, please mention it as well. In-game disputes can also be mentioned by the de-jure occupant listing the territory on his/her report.

If you have a preferred nation trigraph, other than one which I may have assigned in the wiki nation infobox, please let me know.

example:

Quote:Colonial Report for Myopia
trigraph: please change to MPA

Homeland (no date necessary)
1899

------

-unresolved OOG conflict with Dumbland over territory 6671

-In game dispute with Dumbland over territory 5613

Thanks a lot guys and gals... this will really help me out a ton!! And help bring about a resolution to any issues we may have outstanding.

  Transition of Powers
Posted by: Brian von Gotha - 07-05-2013 05:33 PM - Replies (4)

Beginning on August 1st, I am going to re-position myself within Gotha from administrator to "Founder."

This will mean relinquishing my admin position, in terms of decision making, and transitioning to being the keeper (and 'improver') of statistics. I will, of course, also be a regular player and have my own nation. While I will not be voting on administrative issues, I will be available to advise and mediate when needed. This will hopefully alleviate some of my frustration with feeling overwhelmed, and give me a chance to channel some creativity into Anat Tahan and Gotha in general.

In the mean time, I am putting the finishing touches on an updated ledger and map of development based on revamping some of our original stats for some of the advanced colonial areas. They should be similar population-wise, but have better GDPs than are created via the (old) 'retroactive' colonial update method I was using before. That method was fine for short periods (i.e., for playing out the game), but some of our colonies are just too old for it to work, resulting in skewed statistics (very poor people) without additional tweaks. Basically, we'll be starting with a (more balanced) base, with no tweaks or retroactive development. I gave special attention to some key areas on the 'colonialized' continents, so this will not affect most homeland territories. Anaria remained virtually untouched in this process.

This needs to be finalized before I step aside, so I will put the proposed updates forth to administration, and we will discuss it and make changes. After that, and until further notice, ledger updates (in terms of advancements) will be every 10 Gotha years (like a census), that's every 5 earth years. Essentially it will be static unless something awesome happens in terms of database programming/automation on my part, but we wont plan on that. Instead I'd like to focus on making those statistics easily accessible and usable.

A more detailed description of my duties, as well as the duties of the Administrators will be posted by August 1. At this time the name of a new Admin will also be announced.

Sincerely,

Brian
