Landforms / Place Names

This page is for discussing the naming of various landforms in bigworld.

Such as naming lakes, rivers, mountian ranges, swamps, etc

This could help with giving some quests/dungeons some backstory

It may be useful to say what map it is on, also posibly link it to cfworldview?

places can have different names, used by different cultures/races (more depth!!!)

… No idea how well this will go…
