I meant to say: the map looks really good. For presentation I think it's the best I've seen here.

That's an odd suggestion. SW is by far the easiest region to capture, and SE one of the hardest.

                  Final Forge

---The Ireland map* has reached the ‘Final Forge’ Stage. I've revived this thread from the pits of the Foundry furnace and have examined the contents. Nearly every major concern has been addressed. If there are any other current concerns, please make your voice heard. There will be two days for you to post any objections; if no one has posted any protest after two days the map will be deemed finished with the 'Foundry Brand' of approval and will be submitted for live play. If after two days there is still discussion going on it may continue until said discussion has reached the conclusion that the map has reached its final and polished version.

Post questions and concerns if any.

*(Note: most maps won't go through such a long waiting period as this map and the Space map.)

Actually, I've a minor change that I'm going to make, I'm going to change the name of the regions like you suggested.

I'll send it on to lack once it's done. :)

I believe that some continents have more borders than they should, and 5 continents is too much... Just my opinion. Anyone with me?

is there a way the colors of the continents can be altered? right now they are too light and not very distinguishable from one another.

They are light... but they look fantastic! A very nice counterpoint to the darker maps... Can't wait for the liveness. Good work Kev.

The colors look OK to me (although the green could be brightened a little), but I think Marvaddin might be right. It's true that "not all continents need to be holdable", but having the Midlands, the East, and the South East right next to each other makes me wonder if any player who starts in that half of the map might be doomed from the start, just because there's nowhere for them to really gain a foothold while other players claim the West and South West.

(Oh, and I think it's great that you're switching to non-directional continent names.)

I'm an Irish citizen...if you're short of the 6 for the breakin game, feel free to call on me...though I suspect there are 6 who are really from Ireland.

I think Marv means 6 is too much. If you'll check the first page, it was Marv who called for 5 continents in the first place...

I think 6 is fine.

And Kyle, Donegal is not in the continent of "Northern Ireland", but in the continent of "The North". You're right to point that out, but I'm sure Kevin is well aware of it. Partitioning Donegal from the rest of Ulster wouldn't make sense in a map where the continents are geographical, not political.

Since you are changing the continent names (good idea), a couple of suggestions - three of the old provinces are more or less intact, so Connacht, Munster and Ulster; the other three - you could make the Dublin one The Pale, and the Waterford one Ossory.

I still think with him changing the continents he should make the country of northern ireland a continent and put donegal as part of the west region, it would also provide an interesting twist since donegal would be like sort of a lone ranger over there in the north bieng part of the west.

I'd play it regardless.

Thanks for the suggestions folks. Good idea on Ossory rocksolid, I wouldn't have thought of that, and Sunny South East was a bit too long :)

I think the midlands and The Pale(as it's now called) as easy enough to hold. Ossary will be tough, but it's got a high value, like Asia on the Classic map. We'll see how it plays out anyway, if things need adjusting I'll certainly do that.

Here's the version I've sent to lack anyways:
