Naucean is a tropical planet with large oceans. There is one main continent, Upelluri and 3 smaller ones Adapa, Island of the Swamp Tribe, Ninkasi a small volcanic island in the middle of the Ea Ocean, and Utu a large island in which is colonized in the Imperial Age. Utu has jungles, plains, swamps, mountains and even a desert like Upelluri but is about half the size. However unlike Upelluri it is full of untapped resources. This abundance is the driving force for the Nauceans to travel here, especially by the industrial revolution when the Old world becomes polluted from dirty industry.

I like the names. They sound very tribe-ish and suiting.

They are acually all Mesopotamian deity names. And my solar system is full of Ocean deity names (beside the home planet).

please please please draw us a naucean airplane, or blimp or balloon.

given the laws of physics, Naucean airplanes are going to look almost exactly like our airplanes, except for a bigger cockpit.

the new world map looks cool :)

Cool, I didn't know about the names! I knew about the moons and those, but now when you say it, it makes sense. Good going.

Good looking map. Is there any life on the vulcanic island?
A multitude of rulers is not a good thing. Let there be one ruler, one king.

Yes, it is similar to Hawaii. But no Nauceans if thats what you mean.

see that whole reality thing tends to stifle great imagination
I envision "death from above" blimps like the Kirov Airship

or fighters like the B-wing

the funny thing is that the common airplane is not the only way to fly
the germans tried some plain crazy stuff during WWII, really bizarre stuff
"6.4 Um's per minute" or "The Speed of Wright

The idea is to mix one ingredient that will burn very fast with a second ingredient that will supply enough oxygen for that burning. This burns so fast, it's an explosion.

I saw one of those "wing" aircraft was discovered in a hanger just after WWII, crazy to think what might have happened had they launched it sooner!

Here is a Flight Age River Tribe Airship. These were used to transport Nauceans and shipments.However it is also equipped with a cannon on a turret on the bottom for defense. There are also small aircraft during this age that i will eventually get to. But i thought you guys would enjoy this Laputa style air ship that the Nauceans use. You can also see the similarities betwen this and the other Bronze Age Reed Ship.

Use those talents you have. You will make it. You will give joy to the world. Take this tip from nature: The woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except those who sang best.
