- Thy Bonuses!
- I'm not really sure how you determined the bonuses, but with this layout, a good rule of thumb is +1 per territory, given that they are spread out.
I do like the idea that natty proposed with the 'resource pair' concept between the accusers and accused.
The way its worded may seem like any accused will do.
Can you expand on this one a bit more please.
For the Gossip, I think it could stand to be altered a bit. First, the town meeting places bonus should be nixed since it's apart of the Gossip bonus already.
OK. Perhaps +1
Second, I think you should do the Gossip bonus like a +X per Y with a town meeting place, such as, +2 per 5 villagers, or something of the like.
As for the Landowners bonus, you could probably leave it as is, but it may need some tweaking for 1v1s and 3-player games where one might drop 7 or more Landowners.
First, the hanged. I assume the hanged are those outlined in blue, but it's not clear.
Yes, obviously that colour/design needs work
Second, you don't define "villagers", so I'm not sure if you mean the Landowners or everyone or whoever.
Third, are the roads impassable? One would assume, but it doesn't specifically say.
Fourth, the colors are all very similar, making it a tad difficult to distinguish regions at a glance. Perhaps different army circles could help distinguish accuser from accused from reverend from judge from well, you get the idea?
OK, i'll investigate
Fifth, Dr W Grigg has a color all his own that's not explained in the legend.
Sixth, "All of Witch Hill, Prison, Judges, & Any Hanged" is hard to read with its colors, and "All of" seems unnecessary and just confuses me.
Seventh, is Witch Hill a Judge? Seems a bit odd to me.
Eighth, the word 'assaults' should not be used like that in the "Gossip" portion of the legend, given its association to attacking other territories in the CC context.
Ninth, I noticed there's a "Judge Crowin" and a "Jonothan Corwin" - is that correct? I thought given that their last names are so close, they maybe were supposed to be the same.
I'll fix all that.
Tenth, the "Buggy Stops" portion of the legend should be rewritten, as it's a bit confusing as it's written. I suggest something like this:
"Killer neutral Buggy Stops can be assaulted by adjacent regions and can assault adjacent regions and adjacent Buggy Stops via the roadways."
Fixed. But i prefer "Killer neutral Buggy Stops (-2) can be assaulted by
and can assault to adjacent regions and adjacent Buggy Stops (via the roadways)".
I'll fix all that.
[*]Thy Graphical Nitpicks!
[list][*]First, the names of the reverends are hard to read, given the color of the region and text. Second, J. Trask, C. Blake, J. Raymont, Lot Conant, Sarah Cloyce and Reverends J. Higginson are all bolded for some reason. Third, Old Planter Farms isn't condensed and isn't as bright a white as the others. Fourth, Judge Crowin doesn't have a drop shadow.
OK i'll do something about those.
