New Tradgardland



The inhabitants of the Colony of New Tradgardland,situated between the French and British areas of influence in northern America ,are concerned . Circumstances will soon force them to take sides. They wonder if other small colonies feel as they do- isolated and afraid yet filled with excitement at the possibilities of this new land. The men discuss such matters as they take a well earned break from their daily tasks near the shoreline. The politics of Europa talk loudly even here!

Yog-Sothoth!I have not yet began to draw the map of mythical North America and a new country is to be added!
John Preece (OSW group) suggested a Welsh colony following the expedition of Prince Madoc of Gwynedd in the mid-12°C. I place it on the north-eastern third of New England.
For me I have a Jacobite kingdom in exile in Acadia (including Maine), and an Irish Catholic republic instead of the Minnesota.
Phil Barker suggested a Briton (post-arthurian) and a Viking kingdoms: to leave room for (most of) the historical British & French colonies I have to place them on North Carolina+ the northern half of South Carolina and Georgia(going west to the Mississipi), and filling south down to Florida (Spanish) respectively.
New France is restricted to Canada as after the treaty of Utrecht -Louisiana is half Vinlander (vikings) half Spanish west of the Mississipi, Axtec east of the river. Texas,New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Nevada and California, together with Mexico and Guatemala, are Axtec. Alaska and Klondike/Yukon are Russian. The remainder of 'our' USA is sino-indian (a 'communist' theocratic empire, Inca-fashion), together with our British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchevan and part of Manitoba...There is a V-shaped 'unclaimed' (by the white & yellow men) tribal wilderness in the north...
I suppose New Tradgarland is on the north-east coast?
Well, next time I'll write about my Lace Wars interpretation of S.M. Stirling's Domination of Draka as a French Huguenot republic in South Africa...

Minnesota should clearly be Viking; the Kensington Rune Stone documents the claim.

The Irish should be around South Bend, Indiana.

There is also considerable speculation that Madoc's group ascended the Mississippi into the the lower Missouri, becoming mingled with the Mandans ... some aparently shared words and special designs on ceremonial weapons being used for this argument ...
"America, B.C." is a wonderful book for making all sorts of links ... and don't forget the Book of Mormon!!!
Also, there's good evidence that Brandon's successors penetrated to the Blue Ridge and had some influence on the development of the Cherokee religion ...

Ignaz, Arthur,
to leave room for (most of) the historical British & French colonies I had to slip southward the likely Briton & Viking settlements - and yet I scratched a good third of the 13 colonies!

Nonetheless, St. Brendan's followers would clearly be drawn by some irresistable force to northern Indiana.

Okay, if we're going to run American hystericals, how about varieties of hidden tribes ... good old Hollywood style lost cities and secret kingdoms run by luscious and seemingly immortal queens, etc. etc.?
I think I'd love that set up --- give a good reason to finally paint up all those Aztec figures ... I mean, think of a world where Pontiac actually won?
