You can ignore this until after v1.8 so it won't delay the publishing...
I'm going to be away until April for a high school exam, so I think I better submit it now...
My Request for Axum
Please comment, especially about the new Nile I propose ;)

Aren't those guys pretty well represented by Ethiopia? Or are you just asking for new city names?

Leoreth is focusing the Ethiopians as Axumites now rather than one Ethiopia for full Ethiopian from Nubian era to current era...
Changing their UHV etc..
So, I think their city name should be changed too ;)
Also, I submit request for a more realistic Nile, etc..
What do you think?

It looks fine, really. If it is more historical, then Leoreth should implement it.

Actually I have no way to verify the historicity of these names, it would be easier if I had a "replace name A with name B" kind of list.
Ethiopia has always represented the Aksumite Kingdom, but doesn't represent Nubia.

The problem is almost all of the city names are identical, too modern or not actually a city names; so I start over..
Here's my sources :
-Wikipedia's Axumite and few Ethiopian cities
-Original text of Periplus of Erythraean Sea
-Ethiopian Archeology website
I can guarantee you it's all correct.. I have even re-checked it twice before I submit it here.. :)
But it's alright if you want to re-verified it ;)
The Nubian city names is the one in Red..
I thought to include Nubian because Rhye did so in the original CNM by adding Meroe..
