Trying to help out... Whether Warcry uses these is really up to him. This is to fill out locations around Cybertron. I'll start with Altihex, see what the Mods think of it.
_______________________________

Altihex

Altihex is an orbital torus state that borders Iacon, Kalis, the Neutral Territories, the Rust Sea, the Tagan Heights and Uraya. Altihex is currently a peaceful Autobot territory, albeit an unpopular one. It houses the Autobots' main detention center, home to various Decepticon Prisoners of War as well as Autobots convicted of crimes. Rumours of torture towards the prisoners are spreading, with some (http://www.tfarchive.com/rpg/site/characters/shrapnel) having experienced it firsthand.

The 'current TFs on the area' might work to help overwhelmed players (like yours truly feel sometimes) to track who's who in the place.

Kaon

Kaon is a Decepticon-controlled city-state in the southern hemisphere of Cybertron. Kaon is where the War originally started, for it is in Kaon that Megatron recruited his army of Decepticons and killed Sentinel Prime. Generally considered one of the worst places in Cybertron, in Kaon only two types of people exist: the elite and the slum. When Decepticon Civil War broke out, the slum and citizens riot and fight over the leaders. However, the elite class is growing tired of this and maybe are planning to dispense with leaders entirely. The arrival of Megatron's party there has just heated things up.

I have created, and uploaded, the locations for:

The Border Regions (http://tfarchive.com/rpg/site/locations/border_regions)
Iacon (http://tfarchive.com/rpg/site/locations/iacon)
Protihex (http://tfarchive.com/rpg/site/locations/protihex)

[Re:edit]
Tzai Industries (http://tfarchive.com/rpg/site/factions/tzai_industries) info also updated. Yeah, it's not a location, but it has plenty to do with the Border Region's back story.

(EDIT: And yes, I borrowed pre-existing information already posted by Warcry and Reflector in related entries to create the Iacon and Protihex profiles. The information was already so well written, so why change it. :))

Notice any problems with them? I'll fix 'em then. Just let me know :)

Oh, and I'll upload the Altihex and Kaon entries here in a little bit, if they haven't already been taken care of.

Yeah. It's a double post :p

Alright. Just uploaded your two entries. Your Altihex entry was pretty good. Nice and concise. Regarding the Kaon entry, I made a few grammatical corrections so it would flow a little better and made a few additions (again borrowed Warcry's info). Hope I didn't over do it too much. One question though, your list of Gigatron's Decepticons seems awfully short (I know it's more then just one. It just has to be more. Isn't it?). Anyone have a complete list?

I totally forgot before, but this reminded me -- I uploaded maps of Autobase (http://tfarchive.com/rpg/site/locations/autobase), Crystal City (http://tfarchive.com/rpg/site/locations/crystal_city), Iacon (http://tfarchive.com/rpg/site/locations/iacon), Kaon (http://tfarchive.com/rpg/site/locations/kaon), Polyhex (http://tfarchive.com/rpg/site/locations/polyhex) and Protihex (http://tfarchive.com/rpg/site/locations/protihex), and linked to them from the appropriate location pages.

Incidentally, what is the story with Kalis, anyway? I know it's an Autobot territory, but is anything actually happening there?

I think the zombies sorta made people think twice about using the place as a tourist destination. ;)

M'kay. Zombies it is!

Kalis (http://tfarchive.com/rpg/site/locations/kalis) entry added, with a fun Transformers comic reference! Yay!

EDIT: And I added a fun little image to go with it. Yay!

Re-EDIT: The Maccadam's entry went and got an image update too!

Okay, I'm just about finished with the locations page(s) on our wiki. But I need information, in the context of our own RPG-verse, on the following locations:

Magnanese Mountains, Mithril Sea, The Rad Zone, The Wastelands, Thunderhead Pass, Debris and New Quintessa.

I know Magnanese Mountains is mentioned in the original Marvel Headmaster comic, but we're not adhering to one specific take on the Headmaster story here. So, how has Magnanese Mountains been used here? What happened there?

Also, Thunderhead Pass. I'm only aware of it being mentioned in the Stormbringer comic, as a site of destruction where a rampaging Thunderwing fell. I am aware of the characters history here in the RPG-verse too, and this doesn't quite fit with IDW's interpretation of the character (here he seems more like the Marvel version), thus I'm doubting Thunderhead Pass is used in the same context, yes? So what happened in Thunderhead Pass here?

Though a good chunk of my characters hang out in Iacon, I still have no idea what and where Debris is.

The Magnanese Mountains, Mithril Sea, Rad Zone, Wastelands and Thunderhead Pass are just geographic locations...they really don't have any history in the game that I can remember.

Debris moves around a lot (as befits the HQ of a commando group like the Wreckers) but currently it's located in a modest building inside of Autobase.

New Quintessa is the base of operations for the Quintesson Dominion. I, er, don't remember much else about it, but Quick Switch and Scout had an RP thread circa 2002/3 that was based there.

Thanks! Just used this info for the Debris and New Quintessa pages.

makes dusting off motion with hands

And that, my lovelies, completes the locations page!

zombies? When was this?

Couldn't pin-point exactly when it happened it the RPG, but in the Marvel (UK) comics (issues 164 and 165), Kalis had a bit of a zombie problem. Perhaps this was were the inspiration came from. I know that's where I got the image from for the Kalis page.
