Nogova is located not far from the Malden islands, due west. After enduring a socialist regime from the end of WW2 up until the mid-1970s (when public dissent and less interest in the strategic importance of the island led to a change in government), Nogova was invaded by the Soviet Union in the early 1980s. Coordinated resistance subsequently restored the pre-invasion republic. The population range from petty industrialists to fishermen and farmers. It has a small desert in the south-west and the rest of the island is mostly green. In the north there are many pine trees and rocks. It is the largest and most detailed of the default islands. Nogova is an island full of nature.

Towns & Villages

Castle and village below

Small towns, villages, farms, and some ruins are scattered over the island. Like Everon, Nogova also has a castle ruin on a mountain above the mountain village of Trosky. There are many large towns, including Modrava (the main port), Petrovice (industrial center) and Lipany (the capital), all with very different layouts. Vidlákov, to the south, is a smaller port. In the north-west and north-east of the island are Mokrá Varta and Kvilda, respectively. These towns are more or less cut off from the rest of the island, relying on subsistence fishing. Nogova has a bridge which connects the island over the river running from the south up the center. There are many beautiful locations with breathtaking views, including from the town of Varta in the mid-east of the island, along with the ruins of a church and castle there. A well-preserved manor house lies just outside of Mírov (notably, it appears prominently in the Resistance campaign).


The capital of Nogova (below). Covered in cobblestone streets, it is a gorgeous town full of life and culture. Its centre square includes the large building of the town hall (with a clock and 3 floors, the roof can also be accessed). A radio mast is just outside Lipany, allowing a view directly inside the building with the clock (used a couple of times in sniper missions).

Lipany locals are proud of their town

Apart from towns, Nogova also has 2 airfields, one in the desert and one on a separate island to the north. Small restaurants, shops, gas stations, factories, concrete blocks of flats, warehouses, but also small architecture (e.g. bus stops, fountains and benches) can be found all around the island as well. The only settlements without direct road access from the rest of the island are the isolated villages of Mokrá Vrata and Kvilda, which lie on the northern shores of Nogova, near the foothills of the steep North Mountains.

Terrain & Foliage

North Mountains

Nogova might not feature as many different tree types as Everon, but it is certainly not a boring island for just wandering around to look at the nice scenery. In the south-west, there are dry/dead trees and shrubs as well as many rocks and even a dig-site that reveals a ruin. The desert has some large hills, and the rest is a bit hilly and bumpy. Away from the desert, it becomes greener. The south is pretty much flat with some long stretching hills, and farther north it gets more mountainous. The 2 highest hill peaks are covered in snow caps and there are many rocks and outcroppings in this area.

The lake

Near the town of Frymburk (north of Slapy), there is a lake (pond) with many water reeds. This lake usually lasts all year if rainfall is adequate, though there are no fish in it. Nogova has an inlet that almost cuts the island in half, which can be crossed to the north by road or south by the bridge.
