View Full Version : SP League of Nations

I'm curious as to just how many nations we have represented here at SP. While there is a "From" line at the bottom of each person's posts, many people put up fictional places (DR's 'land of milk and bunny' springs to mind - although I know he's an American) and some people just put up a city. If you aren't familiar with the geography of a particular area, you have no idea what country it is located in. For example, Splunge lists Manitoba. While most people would know that's in Canada, some may not. (Manitoba, that's at the North Pole, eh?)
So let's see how many countries we've got represented here.
I'll start: a dull beginning - the U.S. like dozens of others.
Thu, 13th May '04, 9:27pm
Sweden, like atleast half a dozen others.
Thu, 13th May '04, 9:33pm
Manitoba, that's at the North Pole, eh? Well, given that we just had over a foot of snow ( IN MAY! :flaming: ), I'm beginning to wonder.

I'd like to put down Scotland, but I'll probably have to settle for UK.
Thu, 13th May '04, 9:52pm
Scandinavian here, from the area of Finland, and coast-city of Vaasa. In case you do not know, Russia is just east of here. ;)
Prob. in future it will be "USE" :p

Poland. No, I'm not a Polish immigrant in the US, I live here in Poland.

I see we have masked the bi-annual 'So where do you come from?' thread in a layer of veneer and class, what have you.
Thu, 13th May '04, 10:27pm
Perhaps a more prominent SP-german (Ragusa) should pipe up in my stead. Anyhow, Germany. Location: The middle of 'old Europe'. :p
Thu, 13th May '04, 10:40pm
Even though Joc already posted on this thread, I shouldn't do it as well, but, since I feel so distant to him, I will anyway. I mean, if I can't touch someone within my arms reach, they are not close to me.

Thu, 13th May '04, 11:00pm
I'm from little old Denmark, as a couple of ohters
Thu, 13th May '04, 11:04pm
Land of the Switzer.
Thu, 13th May '04, 11:44pm
I'll represent the lands down beneath, a.k.a. the netherlands or Holland
Fri, 14th May '04, 12:12am
USA, like one or two... or three... or a lot of us here.
Fri, 14th May '04, 12:34am
Holland: The land of clogs and weed :roll:
Fri, 14th May '04, 12:34am
The city is called Brussels, which is the heart of Belgium, which is the heart of Europe.
Can someone take an online world map and color each country that's occupied by an SPer?
Fri, 14th May '04, 1:01am
USA - yet another one.
@Oxymore - that's not a bad idea, actually...
Fri, 14th May '04, 1:15am
I too inhabit that tiny piece of land we call England.
Fri, 14th May '04, 1:17am
Slovenia, now coming in the EU flavour to your local ice cream stand.
Fri, 14th May '04, 3:31am
Canada, where in Ontario we just had our first Smog Alert of the season. And it's only May. Ick.
Fri, 14th May '04, 5:48am
Another Canuck here...
Isn't this country great? Snowing in Manitoba, smogging in Ontario...*sigh*
Fri, 14th May '04, 6:09am
A proud and mighty Aussie here (now just remember to pronounce that with a 'z' sound not a flippin soft 's' sound you people! ;) )
Fri, 14th May '04, 8:59am
New Zealand - Land of the Long White Cloud, home to Kiwis, Peter Jackson, Rotku, and, um, Deathmage.
Fri, 14th May '04, 9:05am
Welcome to the west coast of Canada, where the weather is sunny, and we think the snow out east is funny. (Hey, I rhymed :roll: )
Prince George, BC, Canada. (http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp?country=US&countryid=250&addtohistory=&searchtab=address&searchtype=address&address=&city=Prince+George&state=BC&zipcode=&search=++Search++)
Seriously, the best May weather we have had in years. I mean, I may change from pasty white to eggshell or something like that.
Fri, 14th May '04, 11:08am
Zdravo Taluntain (the only thing I learnt from my Slovenian friends), welcome to the EU club.
Spanish by birth, I am settling in Ireland for good.

Fri, 14th May '04, 12:02pm
Chalk up another one for the Netherlands :grin:
Wow, we dutchies are better represented than I thought. I mean, MoN, Apeman, Morgoth, SleepleSS, Big Bald Ranger and of course, me. ;) (And those are just the ones that come to mind.) Not bad for the little country we are :)
Fri, 14th May '04, 1:10pm
Fri, 14th May '04, 1:19pm
Another Dutchman here, not stoned though. :D
Master of Nuhn
Fri, 14th May '04, 1:35pm
Wow, we dutchies are better represented than I thought. It's obvious we are well represented, so once again I remind you that you shouldn't think. When you think, you make noise, smell bad, your head hurts, you make my head hurt, and finally you come up with something utterly useless and not interesting. :shake: :p
It's Faragon-bashing week! ;)
Fri, 14th May '04, 2:00pm
Three Dutchies in a row :grin:
Xei Win Toh
Fri, 14th May '04, 2:07pm
Chalk up another Swede.
Fri, 14th May '04, 2:39pm
Wow, Mesmero and Pac Man, totally forgot about you two... That makes 8 already. Together, we could seize control, and rule these boards as our personal playground! :grin: ;)
MoN: Faragon Bashing Week? Please. I've dealt with pawns bigger and badder than you. I remain unimpressed. But keep on practicing, statistically speaking, you'll get it right eventually. :happy:
Fri, 14th May '04, 2:42pm
Ok, that means that Joacqin, me, Xei Win Toh, and RooK the <something> are Swedish. Did I miss something?
Fri, 14th May '04, 2:50pm
Fri, 14th May '04, 2:56pm
Even thought the US is already well represented, I really liked the map link that was given above. So here I am in Oak Forest, Illinois (http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp?country=US&countryid=250&addtohistory=&searchtab=address&searchtype=address&address=&city=&state=&zipcode=60452&search=++Search++)
I retain things better if I can see them. :book:
Fri, 14th May '04, 3:04pm
I bet Simpsons get to visit you every now and then, Springfield being practically your neighbour. :D
Fri, 14th May '04, 3:15pm
Rhythm is from Malaysia!
Yes, we live up coconut trees in huts made from a combination of strong wood and stone. Tsk tsk, I laugh at you poor Westerners... living in comfortable derelicts that shelter the body from sun and rain. Hahahaha!
But we have Wi-Fi!
Just kidding folks... 'bout the Wi-Fi. ;)
Sir Ai Rayzor
Fri, 14th May '04, 3:40pm
Yeah.. another one from Denmark :)
Fri, 14th May '04, 6:32pm
@ Wirhe - Actually, there are towns named Springfield in many of the states in the US. I don't know that the Simpson's Springfield is in Illinois. However, if you ever watched Roseanne, they are located in Lansing, IL, IIRC, where I have relatives living now. :)
Fri, 14th May '04, 8:12pm
Belgium. Not a bad country to live in really. Don't you folks believe what you hear on the news. :p
Fri, 14th May '04, 9:09pm
Eng-er-land :rolleyes: Like the other dozen plus people with english accents.
Fri, 14th May '04, 9:30pm
Yep, i'm from the land of "stiff upper lips" also...that's England. Although we don't all have stiff upper lips, not at all :nono: Despite the way Hollywood might depict us!
Fri, 14th May '04, 11:11pm
New Zealand - Land of the Long White Cloud, home to Kiwis, Peter Jackson, Rotku, and, um, Deathmage.That sums it up nicely.
Fri, 14th May '04, 11:24pm
I'm another Canadian.
Fri, 14th May '04, 11:40pm
One more from Finland here.
Sat, 15th May '04, 5:45pm
I'm from Canada, eh?
Sat, 15th May '04, 6:37pm
laval which is in Quebec which is in Canada
didn't that we had so many Candian in Here!
Splunge, Laiwethel, Faerus Stoneslammer, Jaguar, Benanthalin, reepnorp, Djieff JSSB did I miss somebody? Well that's make us 9 (with me) so we're more than you Holland
Sat, 15th May '04, 7:10pm
Other Canadians that I can think of:
Mystra's Chosen and Sprite (although she hasn't posted much lately). There's one from Sydney (can't recall who though), and I'm pretty sure there's another from B.C. besides Jag. And I just know I'm missing at least one more, but I'm drawing a blank.
Hmm, I wonder which countries have the most SP members. U.S. would be first I'm sure, but second? Maybe Canada. :)
Edit: add Dragonfly to the list.
Sat, 15th May '04, 7:14pm
No, Splunge. Definitely Finland comes second after the US. :shake: :thumb:
There's also a healthy supply of Dutch folks.
Sat, 15th May '04, 7:21pm
Well, don't I feel stupid - I'll just add Beren to the Canadian list. :o
Sat, 15th May '04, 7:31pm
You know what? Ara, Harkle and Foradasthar don't post much anymore, so you Canadians probably offer more presence than the Fins now, actually.
Sun, 16th May '04, 1:38pm
Tue, 18th May '04, 8:56pm
One more Canadian here, and a French one to boot.
Tue, 18th May '04, 9:13pm
Canadians are more present, the finns are a greater force.
Tue, 18th May '04, 9:28pm
Only #2 in this thread after Tal, but there used to be quite some of us here.
Keneth of the Darkforest (later renamed to Ryn, spammer :p )
Lynx Lupo (newer one, havent seen him in a while)
Fallen paladin (still around)
kukec (seen very briefly)
There were more of us, to be sure, but most are gone now :(
One really strange thing though... I always play druids, Lynx lupo prefers druids and Keneth has "forest" in his name :grin:
Tal, it's your turn to turn into a greeny, tree-hugging bear man :thumb:
Wed, 19th May '04, 11:35pm
Sweden here too...
Thu, 20th May '04, 1:49pm
Well, just to try to catch up with the Dutch, here is another Belgian :D (from Brussels like Oxymore). Now, since we mentioned him, his location line describes it best (though he just stole that line :p ):
Ce plat pays qui est le mien *starts looking around* I'm sure there is another of our rare kind present somewhere. Hmm, where is he?
Thu, 20th May '04, 2:15pm
Well i must be the first one of the Greeks who post here. And i don't have the spare time these last months to post here.
Sunny noisy but always friendly Greece for me.
Thu, 20th May '04, 3:26pm
Nope, Mithrandir you're not :p
There was this chap here befora ya, by the name of Sirdan (http://www.sorcerers.net/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_profile;u=00003058). Unfortunately there was something nasty going on in RL. I dont remember what it was, but he was forced to quit :(
Aldeth the Foppish Idiot
Thu, 20th May '04, 4:37pm
Isn't BOC Greek as well?
Thu, 20th May '04, 4:56pm
We are 4 in number I think. Pretty cool for such a small country. Hi guys!
Thu, 20th May '04, 5:17pm
@Rhythm: Hi! there you are neighbour across the straits of Johor!
I am from Singapore... home of the red wizards of Thay.
.... and a sunny island too...
Sat, 22nd May '04, 7:38am
I'm from Northern Ireland, which means I have both British and Irish Nationalities. Does that mean I get counted twice?
Sat, 22nd May '04, 11:16am
Thu, 3rd Jun '04, 4:54pm
As you might have guessed... South Korea. The first and probably last .But my childhood was spent in Boston(which is why I can write and read posts at all), so maybe I'm....
Sat, 12th Jun '04, 9:10pm
