To the north of the Imperial Peninsula was the Sea of Melons, with sprawling vineyards along the coast; to the south was the Sea of Fish; and in the south-east the Imperial Peninsula was bordered by the Bay of Trout. To the east of the Imperial Peninsula were the Gold Fish and Axolotl Territories, with the Bay of Sakana in the south and the Canal of Sakana at the end of the bay connecting it to the Nipplerock Sea which bordered the entire eastern coast of the mainland to the north-west of the Axolotl Territory.

Nymph was located in the South West ( - +) of the map. Nymph City was located in the very west of Nymph and was the most western point of the Imperial Kingdom. Almost opposite to the mainland, most of Nymph featured valleys of plains surrounded by massive cliffs. In the middle of Nymph lay the Nymph Farms, vast fields of farmland; and on the east side of Nymph was a deep valley filled with mushroom houses. Nymph bordered the Commonwealth to the north and Southshire to the east.
Kraken was located in the South East ( + + ) of the map, almost directly south of the mainland and was filled with lush forests and jungles filled with vines with many coves and bays along the coast.

Across the sea from Serpent was an island that was home to tree farms and south of the main Kraken territory was the Castle of Verona across the sea surrounded by mountains on all sides. Kraken bordered Nro'Meagh to the west.

After some consideration, on the 2nd of June, Seekinq, Duke of Wyvern along with the__druid, a Plexian friend on CivUniverse, decided to return to CivClassic. They originally tried to settle on some islands on the coast of Nymph in the - + that used to belong to them, without realizing that during the time since Nymph was last active those islands had been taken by IMC. They were swiftly told those islands were claimed and after talks with IMC they eventually decided to move up to the + - near Wyvern's old allies of Acadia, who had informed them about the large amount of unclaimed land up in that region.

"Well lads its nearing an end, 4.5 years of CivClassics, pretty crazy looking back on it. I'd like to thank you all for the memories over the past 4.5 years from Kraken to Nymph and Finally to Fish, Its been fun" - SeekinqFish briefly reformed into the Kingdom of Dolphin, however this did not last long and shortly after they announced that would no longer be playing CivRev and reformed back into Fish. Fish and Wyvern then reformed into the High Kingdom of Griffin for CivMC.
Much of Fish's culture was carried over from Wyvern during the migration over to CivClassics. This Includes the love for Melons, and as such Melonism was considered the state religion of the Kingdom and Melons were considered a very important and holy item to Fish folk. Fish folk often greeted other Fish folk and visitors by throwing them some Fishy Melons, with a few Fish people spreading them around the map thorugh gift boxes filled with Melons and other Fish Goodies. Aside from Melons, Fish was very focused on building a casual and chill buildfriend environment.
