It is also easily defensible, having water flanking it on 2 of 3 sides.

That sounds reasonable to me, but if there was a spot like that closer to the center of our territory, that'd be great.

If you guys reach a consensus that you want it more inland, possibly by the lake, that would be fine also. I'd guess the location I have picked out now could be a major city other than the capital, but I think it would be wise to utilize the location one way or another :)

I motion we move the capital closer to the lake. Indeed, a larger city may replace the location. What do you guys think?

Also, Aside from Elderon and Medieval Guy, not many Lenfel have reported in here. Where are you guys?! :o

Well a capital is usually located in the centre of a nation, so I second the motion. It would be handy tho to have a large city on both borders just to make sure those snow-eaters and sand-chompers won't get anything in their heads. Moving the Capital to the centre also gives the King more time to act once an invading army shows up at either border. If an invading army from Loreos shows up they might take us by surprise but not when they need to cross our dense woods. Although I indeed like your reasoning AK_Brickster I think the Capital near the lake would be better.

Ouch. :roll:

I personally think the capitol in the center is a great idea. :)

I dont want to be part of this discussion since I'm a proud member of the Garheim, but just to give you some input: a capital in the centre of a nation is more an exception to the rule than usual. Consider the European capitals:
London, Amsterdam, Kopenhagen, Berlin, Vienna, Bratislava, Sarajevo, Bucharest, Sofia, Skopje, Athens, Istanbul, Oslo, Helsinki, Tallinn, Vilnius, and Moskow are in no way in the centre of their countries.
Madrid is (but it was build there with the explicit intention to be in the centre), and so are Rome, Brussels, Ljubljana, Belgrade, Minsk and Riga.
In between are capitals like Dublin, Paris, Bern, Stockholm, Warschaw (although this city used to be in the centre of Poland - when Krakow was the capital though), Bern, Budapest, Zagreb, and Kiew.

So, a capital near the border is not that uncommon ;-)

I too think our capital is a little bit close to the border. I put a note on where I think the new capital should go.

I'm also around, reading my eyes out :) I also think the captital needs to be near the lake. It is more central and logs can be transported by river to the border with a city at the border for control, call it customs :).

I agree that it would be a good idea to have the capital on the edge of the large lake, though the original location where the two rivers meet (or split?) would be good for another large city.

Regarding Elderon's suggestions, I like all the names, but would suggest that the "wandering woods" area be made smaller... maybe half that size? As it's drawn it takes up a pretty big chunk of the center of the country.

It might also be a good idea to have (at least) one of the large cities on the coast somewhere, so it could be our large port.

Just my two cents.

I've tinkered with the picture again and this time posted it on Flickr. Ofcourse you guys can add comments and more preferably city names.

Here it is:

As you can see I added a few smaller cities, not sure if that's allowed already, but I thought It would give us a better idea for what nation we live in. Now where the hell is everybody!?

Your link seems to be incorrect, maybe everybody is just lost ;-)
