PostSubject: Weyard vs. Earth SImilarities   Mon Oct 26, 2009 6:27 pm

Hello everyone! Has anyone else noticed that some places in Weyard are similar to Earth (somwhat, either by name or by settings)?

Air's Rock is based on Ayer's Rock, Chile is a country in South America, and I have a theory that the Tea of Time is based on the Bermuda Triangle (I do have doubts, but both are/were supposedly very bad for ships, many having been or could have been lost in them).

Also, Jamie pointed out that Indra is based on a town/city in India.

Have a nice day.

This has been known for quite a long time, actually. It's why Kyomizu in my fic is based on an actual place in Japan.

Did you know that the Izumo story actually is part of Japanese Lore? The Serpent is actually Orochi in Japan, and the Cloud Brand is known as the Murakamo no Tsurugi... Look it up.

Cool. Anyway, I think I will rename the topic from Geography to Similarities.

Have a nice day.

Actually, Weyard is almost identical to Earth.
Gondowan=Africa
Indra=India (even the name is similar)
Osenia=Australia (Oceania)
Angara=Europea and some Asia
Hesperia=North America (Indians)
Atteka=South America
Thundaria=Antartic
Izumo=Japan
Prox/Mars Lighthouse=Greenland.
Also, the oceans are very similar as well.

Oh yeah, you are right. I did notice the similarities between Tundaria, Indra, and Gondowan, but my brain was telling me that Gondowan looked more like South America... However, now that you mention it, Africa does seem more suiting.

Have a nice day.

Yes, also Kibombo and Naribwe have "African" sound-alike tune to them. And don't forget they live in tribes (atleast it looks like the case) and have a darker skin.

That is also true. However, this only seems to be in southern Gondowan.

Have a nice day.
