The last thread I saw of this sort was from 2020, and with 2 years plus a pandemic, I figured it was time to start a new one. Interestingly enough, I had just bought my house in 2020 when the last thread was active (closed on Valentine’s Day, because I love me).

I lIve just south of Nashville, TN, USA.

I live in the bustling metropolis of Tunbridge Wells, which is just to the Southeast of London. Situated in the middle of the High Weald AONB, Tunbridge Wells is an affluent commuter belt town of the sort that has far too many grammar schools and a sitting Tory MP with a disturbingly large majority. Aside from the eponymous wells, It is mainly known for its role in the origin of professional Cricket and people writing letters to the editor under noms de plume such as 'Concerned' or 'Disgusted'.

Like Bath, it historically served as a mating ground for young, single toffs. According to Beau Nash, an 18th century celebrity frequently associated with the place, 'There's something in the water.'
We presume he's not referring to excess bodily fluids.

Frinton On Sea (Frientuna in the Domesday Book), Essex. A quiet seaside place, with a sandy beach, currently besieged by housing development and the butt of a classic LNER joke due to its high population of retirees; "Harwich for the Continent, Frinton for the incontinent."

Lethbridge Alberta Canada, I dunno, we've got prairies and coulees and the mountains are only an hour away. We get chinooks in the winter which are warm pacific winds that warm things up nicely from time to time. July is the only month I've never seen snow. It's a small farm city with a university and a college which creates some weird political polarization.

Narnia.





This is a lie. I live on the Isle of Wight. It's like Narnia in that you can only access it via arcane means (the ferry) and, compared to the modern world, is stuck hundreds of years in the past.
The main thing I remember about the Isle of Wight is that there is a map of the UK in a paddling pool and you can jump from England to Ireland. (I may have been five last time I went).

Is that where Carisbrooke is?
Odd fact about me. We played a ton of Kingmaker as a kid so I orient myself in England and Wales based on the cities from that map. When I visited England last time with the family no one had strong opinions on where we should go and I picked cities that were sites of major battles from my childhood.

Didn't make it to Carisbrooke but that was a highly important castle to us.

Richland, WA. One of the tricities if Washington, along with kennewick and Pasco. Near the Hanford reservation, where they helped make nukes back in the 40s. Climate is just shy of desert, and looks more like the old west naturally. Heavy agriculture from the damming of the rivers, and we are the second largest wine growing region in the USA last I checked.

Newmarket, New Hampshire, a lovely town of about 9,500 people. We’ve lived here for twenty years and never see leaving. A bit of trivia: the largest room in the world was in Newmarket, it might still hold the record, not sure. The building was demolished many, many years ago.

Near Bridport, West Dorset, UK. Famous for Broadchurch, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, the Doctor Who writer Chris Chibnall, and the voice of the daleks.

It's a quintessential English countryside town which makes it maddeningly a prime spot for second homes and retirees, and mostly people who have no idea what D&D is, even less that there are other games.

Auckland, New Zealand. Known for being the country's most populous city/region and biggest sea ports. Everyone in the country complains about Auckland, then they move here to live shoulder-to-shoulder with us.

An interesting fact about Auckland city is that it was designed on a grid plan, but the planners (in England) didn't have a topological map and didn't know about the area's five dozen volcanic cones. We tried to build according to the plan, even when it meant bending streets into knots around the volcanoes and that's why our system of roads routinely drives people mad.

My grandfather was from the Isle of Man and our last name seems to be specific to the Isle.
