I don't believe it...this has to be a joke. I've been looking up maps of regions of New Zealand in an attempt to figure out what petty kingdoms could have existed in an alternate history New Zealand, and while reading about the Te Urewera region, I learn that apparently it means "The Burnt Penis" in Maori...WHAT? According to the story, a Maori chief fell asleep next to a campfire, rolled over onto it in the night and subsequently died from his burns...WHAT? 

Somehow I don't think the "Duke of Burnt Penis" is going to be one of the titles held in this alternate history...

Who am I? I'm a random person who likes solving problems that pop up in various book/film/tv/game/etc series that I pay attention to. Hence, a lot of my work revolves around creating essays, maps, informative pictures, and the odd fan-fic to test out a scenario. I also like designing things, so there's the odd concept there too!

I'm only too happy to help out with things wherever I can...need a quick historical map drawn or want help coming up with a story concept? Send me a message and I'll see what I can do.

Hmm, yeah! I'm actually watching a whole bunch of related videos now...this one's quite interesting; www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vP3Ju… ...could be useful for planning Avalar's future borders! Korinth's Kingdom of Tolagen is pretty much an independent Catalan state, so Catalonians seeking independence from Spain (or Santander/Iberia, in this timeline) could seek to join them.

I kind of feel like you're left out, since there's no alternate New-Zealand yet in Dragons Unite :)

Ha, that was interesting too! USA and UK shouldn't have belonged on the list (one state seceding =/= collapse of country), but Maldives was a funny addition :)

Hmm, yeah, I have been curious about Santander before. It looks like a pretty arbitrarily drawn border.

It's kind of hard, though, there's not many exciting things I can think of...but it would have been nice if the Pink and White Terraces hadn't been destroyed ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pink_and… ). Although I'll be happy if in this timeline the last few elections turned out differently! I think :iconddraigtanto: has toyed with the idea of Indomalaya looking eastward at Australia and New Zealand, though...

Yeah, some were a bit odd. And as for Santander, I'm thinking we might need to rethink that one's history a bit...the borders give the bulk of Galicia, Leon, Castille, Aragon and Catalonia to it, and I remember when I last looked at it, I assumed that in this timeline, the Spanish Civil War ended with dragons breaking free in the North, and Franco taking over the rest...yet the map I looked at was confusing, and I put Franco in the wrong place; his troops started off controlling most of the north, and the Republicans the south! It could suggest that "Santander" is a sort of "North Spain" which Franco's troops formed in the north (and which was either overthrown by dragons or which became a monarchy after Franco's death), while "Spain" is a continuation of the Second Spanish Republic...but I dunno, I think we could possibly do better. We should look into this at some point; as noted, Korinth claims the Catalan Lands, so he'd like Catalonia, and Valencia if he got lucky, so he'd have his eye on the area in case something went down in Iberia...same goes for Sasha with Scotland...

Heh, that was pure luck! They had this giant Smaug model at the airport, so when I saw it I just had to get my picture taken...its eye would open and close and peer around the room!
