If Tuskaroja is the Naval power, why does it only connect to one territory by sea. Logically, it should connect to the most territories by sea. Perhaps even, one way attacks.
Sorry about that that was a typo. That paragraph was about Tytheria. Tytheria is the Naval authority I went back and fixed it.
it's groupings like Ifnal that are going to be taken advantage of to win the game. It's a quick and small bonus with a high yield of 4... which is way to high. I'd say two at best. Perhaps given its coast line the Naval Powers could be able to make their presence known there?
I agree it looks that way but after playing enough games on this map I think you'll find that Ifnal isn't as easy to hold as it looks. It sits in an area that is extremely busy and prone to changing hands, and because it looks like a quick road to victory it usually stays contested. It's part of what keeps the games interesting. I think reducing the bonus to 3 is reasonable, 2 however, would be too low.
Itherania - reunite the old kingdom for a bonus? Similar to the Holy Roman Empire goal of reuniting the Roman Empire?
exactly. Itherania was the name of the old empire.
Carpinthia makes lots of sense. Strong land army so high bonus, though perhaps the border should be reduced by a territory to make it more defensible.
maybe not a bad idea, I kind of like having regions that are difficult to keep but yield great reward.
The idea of sea routes is interesting and might be worth looking into. However, I've put a great deal of thought already into what should connect with what. It's something worth looking into, I just don't want to promote too much interconnect-ability. As in, making it so that everything is accessible from almost any where.
However maybe the idea of a +1 OR +2 Sea bonus is a thought. As in a neutral territory that is only accessable from a few regions, say Ifnal, Illarullia, Thessisamess, and Iskul, that gives you +1. Or It give you +5 or something sweet on the condition that it reverts back to 0. So you might end up losing more troops trying to take it, so it's kind of a gamble. I dunno maybe a stupid idea just a thought.
