Not trying to be a jerk, but I did a quick forum search.

Netherlands final forge on February 2nd 2007 quenched on 24th of January.

China final forge on May 23rd 2007 and quenched yesterday or the day before. whatever it was.


Netherlands the longest time in final forge. Not sure which map was the longest from start to quench though.


Also, congrats again on the quench!

Here you go Wisse. This zip file has both teh large and small version of teh map.

All of the work is done in the Large file and then an image without army circles is saved and imported into the small version. The circles are then adjusted and text moved where needed for the small.

i didn't want to let somone start with that bonus, so i made it neutral, and if i would make it 1 army then it would have been to easy to get and if i would make it 3 then i did get complains about an easy border ;)

i don't like it.

i say that as someone who is benefiting from it by getting all 3 of the territories to the south. that 2 will make it easier for me to conquer and hold.

I've recently started a game on this map, and spent ages trying to work out if the rivers/Great Wall were impassable or not, before misdeploying.

I know it's a bit late to mention this, but is there any chance that the impassables can be added onto the legend to stop idiots like me making silly mistakes??

nope sorry not going to happen, it isn't that confusing that the rivers and the great wall are impassable, because there are arrows and bridges, and mistakes are there to learn from ;)
