Current map version 1.0.1, updated 9 Aug. 2022

Esferos Topographic Map | Biome Map

Joining and staying on the map

In order to join the map, you must follow these steps:

  1. Join and introduce yourself on the main TWP Discord server and the TWP Roleplay Discord server
  2. Read the Guide to TWP Roleplay & Esferos Lore Introduction
  3. Apply to become a member of the Hall of Nations
  4. Submit your Mapplication™ to this thread once you have applied. See below for Mapplication™ instructions.

The map is updated on the 15th of every month—to stay on it you must remain active, which requires you to:

  • Maintain your Hall of Nations membership—this includes making at least one post (new thread or reply) per month anywhere on the forums
  • Engage in the Roleplay Discord at least once every three months

Becoming inactive or leaving the region immediately forfeits your place on the map and in the canon unless you first talk with the Cartography Board. Inactive nations with significant contribution to the canon may become NPCs controlled by the Loremasters instead of being removed entirely.

How to submit your Mapplication™

iwbLqxJm.pngMapplications™ must be submitted as a reply to this thread. Below, you will find the Mapplication™ form to paste into a reply and fill out.

Submitting your Mapplication™ will begin a process where statistics and realism will be discussed with the Cartography Board. It is important to note that this process is not a negotiation—the community standards for realism will be met, but we encourage you to meet them creatively. If you have questions about specifics, or do not fit in a particular answer category, read the background material and explain where you may land on each of the Indices. Joining the TWP Roleplay Discord server is heavily encouraged for more involved help in this process.

The name that appears on the map for your nation must be reasonably realistic—if the name you choose does not meet the canon standards, you will be notified by a member of the Cartography Board. Your map nation's name does not need to match your resident nation's name.

You may request a premade area (outlined on the map in grey) or draw an area of your own. If you draw your own, please take a screenshot of the map and mark the territory you would like to request, like the example image provided in this section. Major cities and other features are also welcome. Please review the Esferos Topographic Map and Biome Map to inform your nation's placement, as geographic features and environments will not be changed to suit your desires after placement.

The map is updated on the 15th of every month, and hotfixes are released to include new applicants within 48 hours of applying.

Mapplication™ format

Please note: as of August 1, only Andolia and Nur are currently open to new applicants. The other continents will re-open at a later date.

Mapplication™ example:

Spoiler

Nation name: Exampletopia

Discord name: ExamplePerson#0123

Map nation name: Exampletopia

A couple sentences about your nation:

My test nation, Exampletopia is a small city-state that has struggled under the militaristic rule of President Sercan for the past 34 years. 

Exampletopia's civilian economy is very sea-based, with large fishing industries and a fair-sized international port trying to capture sea traffic and spur on the economy. 

Exampletopia is a cautious country, trying to actively balance its de facto dependency on its developed and economically-stronger neighbours. It will likely welcome ties with far-flung nations it think can offer it something.

Any other inspirations or concepts you want to share: Recently, Exampletopia has been trying to promote the nation's newer government-built casinos as a tourist draw and a way to generate revenue in international currency because our currency is suffering massive inflation. 

Exampletopia has the welcoming, warm energy of a Caribbean nation but its residents have the temperament of the villagers of a small Eastern European town that hasn't been visited by outsiders since the 1600s. They're happy to have you over for dinner but have NO idea how to relate to others.

I would like to send territory request if that is fine.

I haven't been able to see the point list, but if I am acceptable into the top three, then I want to be early.

Thanks Again

After a bit of perusal and contemplation, I think Podium would be best suited here, if it's not too much trouble.

All yours.
