I don't know, but both in rangers apprentice and then especially brother band(I know this isn't the net for them) the populations seem all over the place, also especially the weather. for example in book 9, picta is snow free and chilly, but in book six northern araluen is freezing and seems to have a lot of snow. but then they can push a cart through it all to assault castle mackinaw. seems kind of weird. an example of the weird population is it seems like hallasholm is a small town of like maybe 1000 people( seems like less if you consider the average brother band size is about 20 per year)(and people don't live that long). so having three hundred araluen archers would be nearly unbearably large to support. also if the scandians could only muster 1500 soldiers to fight the temujai, and with their apparent militarization there population would seem very small. which is weird once you consider how big araluens population must be, and how big of a burden those 300 archers would be upon their military, especially since araluen doesn't keep a standing army so the expense would be great. also from a strategic perspective why are they keeping celtica around, there is no reason. aslo completly unrealted, but what the heck happened to all the fantasy aspects after book 2, like seriously would none else try to collect that army of wargals and bend them to a new will. like it kind of came back with the mind control over allice in book six. but still just disapeared. there was the one moment with the barrows that will ran through when trying to get Malcom in book nine but still seems weird. but back to geography and world building, where the heck was he on the map, picta covers the whole top of araluen and it sounded like there was at least hills along the whole border(or why would they invade through Norgate in winter???). so I'm confused. if anyone has ideas epic.
