The Most Avoided in Rushmore
Nations ranked highly are considered by many to be the most inhospitable, charmless, and ghastly places to spend a vacation, or, indeed, any time at all.
As a region, Rushmore is ranked 7,098th in the world for Most Avoided.

Rushmore Regional Message Board
Right you 'orrible lot. I'm all caught up with map claims aside from one. And yes that includes those that were sitting there for over a year. Ahem. Sorry about that.
I've got one left to do and it's a biggun so I'm leaving it for a couple of days because it's late. If anyone else has any last minute requests, now would be a good time to TG them in before I put the file back on the shelf for a month or so. Ta much.
Zandistan has been inactive and CTEd for almost three years. How active were they? There is a late map claim that asks for space south of Electrum already taken by another earlier claim that I've received since coming back. Would there be any significant grumbling with replacing Zandistan? Or would it be preferable to 'stretch' Zandistan down to increase the amount of grey space and accommodate both requests? Both claims were specifically made for that spot on account of suitable IC and RPed reasons, which is why I ask.
Side note: we should have a regional thread on here for map discussion like this - I will create a separate cartography account to do that with later this week.
WCs 61-63, RP'ed a lot in their BoF and for 62 and 63 (in the CoH for WC62 as well). Active in WBC 24, and in CR12, also signed up for CR13 but seemingly didn't RP. That's just the context, I'll leave it up to popular opinion.
I have a question regarding the map - are there any conventions regarding climate zones? I want to live in a harsh, nordic climate but have mainland access given that I regularly refer to a part of my country as "The Mainland" in RP, wouldn't want to retcon that. Given that all mainland parts appear to be relatively southern, I wonder if the climate of my nation is just up to me, if the Rushmori mainland's "southern-ness" is a misconception or if I just missed something else, such as the climate being harsh and cold despite being quite in the middle of the map.
Not particularly, the only established convention is that it's cold up north. Aside from that, everyone sort of decided their own climate.
What you could do is carve out a bit of eastern Rushmore (below Urain, for example), plop your mainland and islands there, and create a micro-climate of your own.
Taeshan RPs as cold, iirc. Next to Taeshan might be a good idea. What tends to happen is places with a similar climate tend to band together. Cotdelapoms, Mytannion, and Swartaz all have had a chilly climate RPed, and there's a little bit of spare land there. Maybe next to Taeshan would be the better bet though.
The south-west is pretty full anyway, so if you'd settle over there it'd mean occupying the tiny piece of land between Cotdelapoms, New Sirain and Erathore. I'd suggest the more spacial area next to Taeshan as well. You've got some pretty sweet room for some islands as well right there.
Also, about to the cold, Candelaria and Marquez and Nethertopia have some fair climates I'd say. That Gary Sea just ruins things for the other isles, stupid cold current.
Aaanyway, I was actually going to make a point with this post. The United Colonies of Nethertopia have been defunct and in the NS graveyard for a couple of years now actually. If anyone wants a claim on that spot on the map, south of the C.N.C.R., please, be my guest. And I guess I could integrate those islands of Danopolis next to the main island into Nethertopia proper. Would you like a TG about that PIS, or is it okay to just notify you over here, like this?
Fwiw Pasarga has a temperate climate with only the area around Lunas being cold, with the thought being the cold waters from the north are mixing with the warm waters of the south around the islands and Lunas is on a penisula on the north side of Peynol. So yeah.
A TG is always preferable. At least til I put a thread up tomorrow.
