I have a question. Mapping, can not add real, fictional elements? If it freehand? Ex: I add a city named Sands, but this city does not exist.

you can ask in your native language. This would remove problems in understanding. Or describe a bit more. Has Richard understood it correctly? I am not fully sure.

What are "real, fictional elements"? Either an element is real or it is fictional. But it cannot be both at the same time.

Definitely not! OpenStreetMap is intended for real, verifiable features. Non-factual data will be deleted.

You can, however, use the OSM code to set up your own fictional mapping website. This requires a fairly high degree of technical knowledge, but some people have already done it. One such site is opengeofiction.net.
