Idea: "Passage to India"
Included will be Indian states, Empires and colonial territories during the colonial age on the sub-continent, from 1600+. Not adhering to strict chronology although intend to stay true to rough geographic positioning.
NB: Downloaded GIMP over the weekend, first time using Photoshop application so still a lot to learn!
Title was thought up last - an obvious allusion to EM Forster novel A Passage to India
- may give new ideas for the map / image??
is a "first ideas map" - I called it a "first draft" but it's not even that. Please comment on everything from names to borders, fonts and colours. I recognise the presentation is very bad at this stage suggestions would be great. You should though have a fairly clear idea of the countries, borders and style of game I want.
