I wonder if New World works similar to Grand Line in the sense you pick a path. I mean, if there is a path then the way to Raftel isn't hard. There must be something else to it.
I was thinking of it being a couple of paths like in the Paradise, but now that you've mentioned it, I asume it will be just a wall of scattered islands, harder to point out, because normal Log Poses don't work their anymore as mentioned at some point I can't a source to right now.^^
I expect than one of the next two isles to be a meeting point with one of the Supernova, as they are so many and the manga won't go for twenty more isles with their own arcs, wouldn't mind a couple of short ones though for a rest though. Hope they will get to Elbaf as soon as posible. Such a big place should be able to host a lot of pirate crews.
It will be Nami who will make the difference then. Or Robin. Maybe they first have to find an Eternal pose around the New World, going forward and back.
And I think it was Keimi who mention that. :O
You just randomly sail towards 1 direction and record your route?if ur lucky enough maybe you'll gather info along the way.lolol
An island where they can encounter either smoker, supernova, emperor. But it would be great if Luffy beat smoker ass.
Metal-plated trees? totally forgot about that. I was trying to get a Galaxy Express fan I know into One Piece because it has the same thing where it's only limited by the writer's imagination, a different planet each week. The reason for One Piece's success and why it has (incredibly unusually) got this far while still getting better is the imagination and the hugeness of the world, combined with characters people want to spend time with.
Anyway prediction:There hasn't been a winter island since Chopper, so I'm thinking a floating island on pack ice would really fit with the One Piece theme of every place they arrive at completely disintegrating a few days later.... and it's an obvious gap in the things that have happened yet (not counting Aokiji, and Franky and Robin's timeskip experiences). Maybe Oda's saving it for Raftel..
Plus curious about the One Piece world. How many days or months did they sail between islands? are all their adventures documented in the story or just the dramatic ones? Shanks and Buggy arguing about the north and south pole is all good, but what? does the Grand Line go round the equator of their world? or on a slant? All that ocean currents stuff when they first set sail under the sea was straight oceanography truth, so Oda knows his shit scientifically when he wants to. I think the plan of making a world that ran off bullshit and rule-of-cool to make it interesting worked, plus ever since Enel went to the moon anything can happen...
I think, they first will meet X-drake [ that cute dino guy :3] on random island of beginning xD [and rest supernovas, because they are too weak for NW xDDD]

It was Minister Of The Left who said the log posts wouldnt work like usual. I dont want them meeting a Supernova so early, for me that would make it seem like a Supernova wasnt strong enough to jump that first hurdle breaking into the New World. Unless its an island in a Supernovas control, that would set up a good conflict down the line & the Straw Hats cant be too buddy buddy with everyone.
I do wonder if ever anyone else will go to the moon
I agree it would be cool & even if Bonney is my least favourite Supernova, she still towers above most other characters in my book, but it wouldnt make sense if they still that close to the entrance after 2 years its wasted potential considering how strong they should be. It would be better further down the line when the Marines get more involved in the story again.
I'm kinda hoping that there's another Yarukiman Mangrove on the other side of the RL. It makes sense to allow bi directional travel to FI easier, and IMO would be fitting..
I'd love it if in the NW the archipelago was a haven of pirates and pure chaos.
It could be a place where the SH face off with some new rookies, or an old foe.. Buggy, Croc. etc..?
Though the foreshadowing for the island that lighting rains upon is pretty clear.....

According to this picture, there are in the New World some "island roads" like there were in Paradise. The difference is that some "island roads" connect to others before getting to the final island of this part of the Grand Line. We also notice that there are four main "island roads", which probably makes the 4 Yonkou territories. Anyway, I guess the Straw Hats will have to change several times of "island roads" for plot reason : to meet people (Lola's mom, Elbaf, 2 remaining Yonkou, Marco), to escape/fight (Smoker, Blackbeard, Admiral), to get something (new coating, special log pose, technology/material, vivre cards). Also since people and Yonkou live in the New World, most of them probably don't follow the "island roads" in their everyday life/year's travels like rookies do. There must be some kind of Eternal Pose/Map to go wherever you want, when you want.
I so forgot that map! And I don't think Oda forget it too, since He's quite good at foreshadowing. I bet Fishman Island is the first dot closer to the Red Line.
That map has another interesting feature. It seems there are 5 islands to depart from at the start of the new world. In turn, those 5 roads eventually converge into a lone island. That lone island is bound to be a remarkable location IMO. That particular location would be where new world rookies are bound to converge, that is, pirates of actual strength who got a shot at changing the future. It is bound to be an inherently chaotic place. Perhaps it also serves as recruiting grounds for the yonko as every young pirate would eventually make it there.
