    Horse Plains near Abydos
    At the dawn of time there were a people known to themselves as Licentians who had wandered the earth until they found a suitable place for them to settle down. They founded a city on the shores of Lake Wallow. The city was called Boaring Wallow and the city grew.

    From humble beginnings more people came to Boaring Wallow and more were born there. In time enough people joined the city that the local government was able to hire workers to help improve the land around Boaring Wallow. Just to the northeast of the city there had long been an area full of wild pigs. With the help of the new workers these wild pigs were tamed and became the staple of the new city diet and economy.

    In addition to the wild pigs there were also small communities growing up around the city near the River Wallow. These farming villages provided much food and income for the growing city. But the people of Boaring Wallow were not confined to thier growing city. They had long explored the world around them and in their travels they had met three other races known as the Mongolians, the Germans, and the Russians. They also heard stories of other races and great cities but no one had ever met any of these people and many thought them just myths.

    As Boaring Wallow grew and its people explored the earth they found other places where people wanted to live. They decided to found other cities under the Licentian flag and to grow and expand the borders of their great country. They founded two grand new cities. Abydos, on a river near the lands of the Mongols. It was placed near to the edge of the wild jungle but also near fields full of grain and a plain that was home to large herds of wild horses. The Licentian people also founded a city known as Micalian's Gate. It was founded on the shores of the Sea of Chip north of Boaring Wallow. It was a beautiful location full of beaches and seascapes, but also very close to a bountiful copper mine in the hills east of town.

    In the decades following 600BC the Licentian people took on a more active role in the world. We began to interact with the other nations around us. We gratiously shared our marvelous inventions, both writing and our alphabet with the poor backward nations that surround us. In gratitude these pitiful nations offered us technologies they considered worthwhile. While we appreciated the gesture we knew that we had given far more than we recieved and hoped that our neighbors realized this as well.

    Unfortunately, Genghis Khan leader of the Mongol hordes has sent is younger brother, Genghis Bob to settle in the lands rightly claimed by Licentia. This undeserved aggresion on the part of Genghis Bob, is likely to lead to the first war among the nations of the earth.

    At this time the Licentian people have grown their nation from one small city on the shore of Lake Wallow to a prosperous and growing group of three cities. They have explored much of the world and thier adventuring spirit is now looking toward the ocean and dreaming of new lands to explore. They have built up a strong military based on the powerful and deadly axemen trained in Boaring Wallow. Many plans and dreams are still in their future and we are looking forward to many years of prosperity and growth for the young nation of Licentia.

    Cartographic Notes

    The World

    In ages past, when the tribes of hunters that would form the great nation of Licentia were wandering across the world, it was believed that the world was flat. With the great advances in learning that came with civilisation, it was then discovered to be a sphere. Some very clever folks then discovered that the world was not a true globe, but a shape called a spheroid. And they were smug. Frankly, everyone else had a bit of a laugh when further discoveries showed that the true shape of the world was not a spheroid after all, but a sidoid - very like a sphere but with some strange properties.

    Despite all advances, it is still not known precisely where upon the world surface our great nation is and we wait for further research.

    Mapping the world

    The process of creating a two dimensional map from a three dimensional surface is called a projection. Due to the unusual properties of a sidoid, only a sirianal projection is suitable for mapping our world. A sirianal projection maintains equal area, but distorts distances. In particular, distances in the directions which are 45 degrees from the 4 cardinal points appear on the maps to be approximately 1.41 times as far as they are on the ground (the exact relationship is square root of 2).

    Some of the small-scale regional maps produced by the cartography office are a conventional orthogonal sirian projection, but many of the larger-scale maps are shown with a perspective view which distorts distances towards the top of the map.

    Map grid

    Most of the maps produced by the Cartography Office have a grid to help locating features. The origin of the grid is the glorious city of Boaring Wallow (0E0N). Grid squares east and north of Boaring Wallow have positive numbers and those to the south and west have negative numbers (for example, Micalian's Gate has a grid reference of 0E4N and Abydos' reference is -4E-10N).

    The reference numbers actually refer to the south-west corner of the grid square and if more precision is required then tenths of a square may be estimated (e.g. our Glorious Leader's Palace front door is approximately 0.7E0.4N).
