[Idea] How to write addresses in Stormark

Recommended Posts

Postal system:

 

When one writes addresses in Stormark to an address in Stormark, use the following format:

 

[Addressee name or title]

([Addressee line two])

[street/identifier] [extra identifier e.g. number]

[locality]

[Postal abbreviation]-[postal number]

 

Also, due to the myriad of different languages, spellings of localities, etc, please use standard spelling of locality names and English for everything else. So Haithabu is preferred over the local Hedeby or the dialectal Heiðabýr.

 

For example, for Stina Arvidsdotter, living in Haithabu:

 

Ms Stina Arvidsdotter

Lango Street 67

HAITHABU

EID-7813-12

 

For Imperial Government offices, use the goverment postal abbreviation, as in:

 

Lady Unna of Skálavik

Hall of Freyr

Vanadísarhall

HARALDSBORG

VDH-1089-01

 

The postal number isn't really necessary for the postman or the one delivering the post to your door. It is for automatic processing so that post can be delivered quicker to the addressee.

 

If you're unsure of the postal number, use the following format:

 

Ms Stina Arvidsdotter

Lango Street 67

HAITHABU

Eidsivarike (or if possible, smaller district)

 

For Government offices:

 

Lady Unna of Skálavík

Hall of Freyr

Vanadísarhall

HARALDSBORG

Gularike

 

Please note that there may be a number of localities in Stormark sharing the same name. That's why the jarldom should be used. However, some localities in the same jarldom may share the same name, please include district of you know or other other geographical identifier:

 

Gwll ab Owain

Caron Farm

CAERNARFON

Goidelia, Sólareyjar

 

Machine-readable address:

 

Gwll ab Owain

Caron Farm

CAERNARFON

SOL-0347-29

 

Some exceptions to this rule is for post to Hurmu Lake District, Riskai, Sangun and Old Sea Fortress:

 

(Only use this method for post that is sent and delivered by Stormark Postal Services and that local postal authorities not be employed)

 

(Note that for all these, postal abbreviations, wherever the locality or address are XXX-1234-56. Please use this to be assured of fast delivery, country names are also acceptable but less quick)

 

Hurmu Lake District:

 

University of Kaupang

Haldarsvik House 90

KAUPANG

HUR-1234-56

 

Riskai:

 

Johannes Karlesson

Androi Park 78

KERA VILLAGE

RIS-1234-56

 

Sangun:

 

Ôe Kenzaburô

Hitoshi Street

KOKUBU

SAN-1234-56

 

Old Sea Fortress

 

Other abbreviations used here are "IPC" (In private capacity), "IAC" (In agency capacity, for anything else than private post)

 

Lieutenant Eirik Gurrason

IPC

OLD SEA FORTRESS

OSF-123-45

 

For Old Sea Fortress non-standard ways of writing addresses are also acceptable:

 

Lieutenant Eirik Gurrason, IAC

OSF-123-45

 

Please note that any post going to and from Old Sea Fortress is actually posted via Haraldsborg High Command and screened for illegal content.

This is a good idea. :)

 

But if the Storish postal service wishes to extend the system of postal abbreviations to Sangun and Riskai, then it should use the following district codes:

 

RIS --- Ritsugun/Riskai

HON --- Hongun

SHN --- Shingun

MON --- Mongun

 

Use of these district codes would ensure that post is sent directly to a sorting office in the appropriate district capital, whereas any post labelled "SAN" or "Sangun" would almost certainly be routed via Kokubu, possibly resulting in significant delay.
