Parishes and Townships
« on: May 07, 2021, 07:42:34 PM »
Based on this thread, I made a quick provisional map of our province. The parishes are not official and subject to change, and the only canton with townships so far is Vilatx Freiric. Also everything is unnamed.

This is the link.

Please suggest parish and township borders, as well as names for them!

Great map!  I like the current parish divisions, mostly.  But we should have a parish of Port Maxhestic that's coterminus with the canton, probably.

I think it would be funny if the parishes within Jahnhaven were named Jahn and Haven.

Things to honor in names:
- The Mar Talossan
- Our absurd and amazing provincial flag
- Milwaukee Art Museum
- Danihel Lorentzescu
- The former name for Maxhestic: Südlicher Großhaven
- Reunision (perhaps one of the VF parishes should have that name?)
- Multiple-term senators Mick Preston, Epic, and Ian P.
- Cunstaval Brad Holmes
- King John
- Numerous landmarks from the list on the wiki (http://wiki.talossa.com/Maritiimi-Maxhestic#Territory), which I put together a long time ago but should mostly still be good.

I added all the townships now. Some of them are ridiculously large (e.g. Jahn·haven 2.14), but there's nothing I can do about that.

Now, the names.
I'm guessing we'll have to name Vilatx Freiric 1.4 "Vilatx Freiric" to make the baron title work?

Yes. That is the intended block.

It doesn't seem right for us to just decide on the names, of course. But maybe we could draw up a bill that establishes these boundaries and suggests some names. Then we can put it in the assembly in the next convocation.
