So, are just arguing semantics? Because (in-show) all three terms have been used interchangeably. Snow used kingdom, realm, land for her "kingdom" within the Enchanted Forest alone (I believe). As seen with Wish Realm (and in the Camelot storyline), Snow and David were Queen and King  (and David Prince) of the Enchanted Forest, despite the Enchanted Forest being a region with other kingdoms.

I think we use whatever terminology the show uses at certain points. For example, Rumple when talking to Robin asked, "How will you like to take a little trip? Another realm, a land called Oz."

I think we do a decent job. With these "regions" generally called realms (with most not having a name), it's okay. If anything, Realm is used for any separate entity, whether kingdom, region, or world. We can't use realms to mean all three as it gets confusing. So, World, Realms --> Kingdoms/Locations is fine. There's no need to use the universal term of Realm or lLand (which is confusing).

So, are we just arguing semantics? Because (in-show) all three terms have been used interchangeably. Snow used kingdom, realm, land for her "kingdom" within the Enchanted Forest alone (I believe). As seen with Wish Realm (and in the Camelot storyline), Snow and David were Queen and King  (and David Prince) of the Enchanted Forest, despite the Enchanted Forest being a region with other kingdoms.

I think we use whatever terminology the show uses at certain points. For example, Rumple when talking to Robin asked, "How will you like to take a little trip? Another realm, a land called Oz." When talking to Regina, he called Wonderland, a land and a world in the same sentence.

I think we do a decent job. With these "regions" generally called realms (with most not having a name), it's okay.
