Overview

http://balthazar.simpli.biz/~veratien/images/Lancre%20Overview.jpg

Since Lancre is a giant megalith the areas of land outside aren't 'islands', they are gigantic stacks. Just wanted to clear that up. New members should state clearly where they wish to be placed and what their capital is and where they want it.
02-06-2003, 23:10
Wow! That Lancre place sounds really great! Maybe I will send Sirroco a message asking for him to let me into what seems like the perfect place! Well I know its the right thing to do! Maybe lots of people will realise it like I have and also join. Wouldn't that be great?! :D
02-06-2003, 23:23
Boy that Sodarules is one cool kid. I think I should telegram telling what a cool kid he is and then go and give him my country. Boy that would be swell no wouldn't it?

Sodomy sure is a fun thing to do,
but I have to say this as a warning to you,
with almost all animals you can have a ball,
but the hedgehog can never be buggered at all!

10-06-2003, 17:23
I do! I read it in a book. The name is such a nice solid sounding word for a region don't you think? Where do you think I got the idea of it being on a megalith from...
11-06-2003, 00:21
We've read all the books, including the extras. I even cooked (and ate) a quatra rodenti pizza from nanny oggs cookbook.
All together now:
the spines on his back are too sharp for a man,
they'll prick you in quite the worst place they can,
the result I think you'll find will appall,
the hedgehog can never be buggered at all!

Probably would have been a better idea to add the map in a new post, or at least give the thread a bump. That way it wouldn't have taken so long for me to find it.

Lancre wahey! Who's capital is Bad Ass? Where are the Morris Dancers?

Well I can now say we've got a capital called Lame Ass... something about a mule that was too ill to cross a river. As for Morris Dancers, you're going to have to ask KATHERINEE...

Since it didn't seem to come through last time...

We in Tesseract would like permission to settle on that light blue patch at the bottom right of the Lancre map.

Please respond soon; the fleet of transport helicopters currently holding us aloft above the region are running a little low on fuel, and we don't really want to have to make an emergency landing on someone else's country.

Basically, you have to give us a VERY good reason for our regions to be allies. Alliances are decided by vote and Lancrastians are very cynical and sceptical. Telegram me with the reasons why we should ally, it gets posted on the messageboard and people vote.
23-08-2003, 10:25

Lancre has been passworded for a long time.It was necessary because of the frequent attempts at invasion we were confronted with. They failed everytime, but we like to be totally secure.

Yeah... we daren't un-password ours though... far too risky. I could only accept UN nations but I prefer Lancre to be a free region. The Lancre Cup began as a way of geting everyone to know each other and, hey whadday know it worked! :)

We've also got a newspaper, lots of active RPers, a Capital-list, a forum and the world's largest bungee jump club: Club Boing-Boing.

27-08-2003, 21:46
4 pages, we had a peak of 33 members but unfortunately 7(!) got deleted on the same day... presumably for inactivity but you never can tell... anyway, everyone feel free to join Lancre, we'd love to have you aboard!
Qaaolchoura
27-08-2003, 22:56
Of the four that I saw, they were deleted for obscene names, UN multis, or possibly both.

Just a guess, as the four that I saw had sexually centered names, and almost all members of Lancre are UN members.
Sirocco
27-08-2003, 23:00
Is 'sexy' obscene? I never knew that. :?

UN multis... maybe, I couldn't say.

We've got a lot of UN members because people like their main nations to be here I guess. I know some are puppets but it's not my place to say who they belong too. 8)
Qaaolchoura
27-08-2003, 23:37
Trust me, things are getting tougher and tougher these days.

And they all had similar names, and so if thay were UN members, then it is a safe bet they are multis.

Oh, and Siro, can you add our Capital Dεiαiy to the list please?

*Delaria bats her eyelids*

OOC: And update that blurry map! *fwaks* :P
Sirocco
30-08-2003, 18:27
It is done! Maybe I'll go to Deayay... er... Diayaayaa... um... Deiayeayaya... how do you pronounce that? I'll update the map right now...

Delaria yawned and sent another message to Sirocco...

"It's pronounced 'Djklivgtiy'*..." she stated.

A slight laugh came from somewhere off camera...

"Yes, 'Djklivgtiy'..." came a female voice from the same direction...

Delaria cut the communication as someone walked through the office doors...

"Why do you keep telling everyone the mispronunciation of our capital?" he stated...

"What? It's not my fault the two words are so close..." she replied...

"Delaria..."

"Yes?"

"Were you ever not evil?"

"No." She picked up her coat and walked over to the office doors.

"Never." she stated. "I'll be back in a few hours, I'm going down to the mall."

"That's very uncharacteristic of you, 'Ria..."

"Not really. Vudruksniviy Toys launched their new Bahbey figureine today. Where else can I see hundreds of women catfight for no reason?"

And with that, she stepped out of the office...

The other woman in the office giggled again...

"'Djklivgtiy'..." she said again, and burst out laughing...

OOC: *'Djklivgtiy', pron. "Dyuklivigtiy", Wenwong for copulation... Although no-one who doesn't speak Wenwong actually realises the mispronunciation of the Capital. When written properly, the Capital is Dεiαiy, pron. Dee-aey, and the profanity is Dειαιy...

Delaria smiles.

"Yes, yes you must." she says very matter of factly.

The woman sitting on the other desk bursts into hysterics, leaning backwards and falling off her chair, banging her head to a loud "OW!".

Delaria tilts her head to one side, an audible crack emmitting from it as the bones release the tension.

"Kierea, will you shut up!" she steams at the poor woman, who is still laughing, even as she stands, rubbing her head where it hit the floor.

"Yes, shut up..." she says distantly, erupting in short giggles every few seconds...

26-09-2003, 16:50
It's a contest for the new map, it hasn't been decided yet.
Sirocco
26-09-2003, 16:51
Note that this is a competition and therefore places can't be claimed until I've judged.
26-09-2003, 16:53
Oh shame, my capital is named bogus
26-09-2003, 17:09
Well, since Laru-Tan is a very old nation and is probably a big one thusly, we would like 16 on the map. Our capital Djelibeybi is to the northwest, and our Meteor Strike Tours take place to the east.
26-09-2003, 17:17

It is a megalith.

I asked Sirocco at one point, and he says that it is surrounded by water, but it is a long, steep, fdrop down.

I love heights, but I also intend to stay in Zhaucauzian Friendship wher I RULE SUPREME. MWA HA HA! :twisted:
Sirocco
26-09-2003, 21:33
:P Yah boo! Zhauizzy... Zhauchhjo... your region will never be as good as Lancre! :P

If you hadn't already guessed Qaa, something went wrong with my computer and now I can't upload pictures and .gif files don't move. :evil:

:P Yah boo! Zhauizzy... Zhauchhjo... your region will never be as good as Lancre! :P

On a serious note, may I propose a map, or is it Lancre MAembers only in this competition?

I love making maps.
Sirocco
26-09-2003, 23:28
Well, if you're ready to update it whenever need be, sure.

It had better be good! :twisted:

How's this (note to the clueless, thiss is a thumbnail sorry, bout that Siro, but if I don't say it there will be somebody who says "Isn't it a bit small?")?

(I know that it looks like a hand, that was completely unitentional.)

Ooh! Very nice! Few things:

The colours are too vivid methinks, I'd make them paler too help the text stand out.
Put some country's name on along with a capital as a demonstration of what a country 'filled in' will look like.
Eh... don't make the 'non-Lancre' blue, it makes it look like an island. Although Lancre is next to an ocean, it's next to a mainland too.

And don't make any pink! :wink:

I'm not sureif paler colors will work with a GIF, so I might have to make it a JPEG until IE learns to support PNGs.

And It's not pink, it's magenta. :roll: ( :wink: )

28-09-2003, 09:38
Good map for lancre
Sirocco
28-09-2003, 17:53
Yes, very nice, text is a bit fragmented, but I suppose you can't help that... the nations that are red should be changed to another colour, it won't look good with the writing... but all in all, very good I feel! I like what you've done with the UN labels! :D
Qaaolchoura
28-09-2003, 23:13
Actually the UN label idea comes from Europe.

I do it in ZF too, and I'm thinking about addin the flags (although obviously Lancre being such a large region that is implausible).
Sirocco
28-09-2003, 23:18
I saw the European map once... it's not something I can match! Any chance of making more nations to make the whole map a bit wider...? Sirocco should be roughly at the centre of Lancre and inland.

Well, we've just got to see if Fluttergork can counter this now...
Qaaolchoura
29-09-2003, 00:00
I shall do that.

You might want to send him a tm or post on the Lancre message board in order to make sure he knows that there is another round now.

EDit: Er Sirocco, did you mean to enlarge the map and chop the nations up, stretch the map and completely redraw the borders, or enlarge the canvas and tack some more land unto it?

Keep in mind that the third option will cause it to lose the coincidental hand shape.
Sirocco
29-09-2003, 07:44
Tack some more nations on and stretch it a bit so the nations with really long names can be fitted in...

Sirocco
29-09-2003, 20:55
:shock: Wow! :shock:

That is very cool! :D

Just one problem... can we fit 40 nations in there?!
Peng-Pau
29-09-2003, 21:07
I count 32...

Want me to shift them a bit?
Peng-Pau
29-09-2003, 21:35

Found a copy, but I concede anywhen.

There is no way that I can learn to use it by tonight. :evil:
Sirocco
30-09-2003, 07:54
Well, to be realistic we need a map of about 50 nations because people are joining all the time... we just got invaded. :evil:

But I booted them! Hurrah! :lol:
30-09-2003, 11:20
Wow that map is awesome!!!
Qaaolchoura
30-09-2003, 22:11
Peng Pau wins.

I've decided that even if I could learn how to use Terragen and create a map at least as good it would not be fair, since had she not mentioned how se got It I would not have had a copy. Plus, I must be honest, I would have cheated and made a Flash map if I had not been forced to play fair by having a version of windows which keeps me from installling it.

*sigh*

Next time.
Sirocco
30-09-2003, 23:06
I pronounce Peng-Pau the winner! :D

Hmm... we'll need about 10 more nations to allow for future growth and then we can maybe make two maps (one of North Lancre, one of South or something)
01-10-2003, 11:27
We would like to have the large island in the upper right then please.
01-10-2003, 13:42
