I am perfectly for adding a territory to Cornwall if you think it'll fit. That'd solve the aforementioned 27 problem.

Hmm... I think it's clear to me, Cornwall really does need another territory. well... doesn't "need" but it might iron out a few issues.

If you change Lugo-Finistere to Lugo-Celtic Sea, it'll be possible to defend Galicia with just Asturias and Celtic Sea, so a -1 on the latter might be useful to keep a Galician player on his toes defensively.


The sea routes are a definite, those need to change for Brittany's sake. I see what you are saying about keeping the -1 on Celtic sea since that'll essentially become an extension of Galicia with out it... hmm.... yes.

I don't think Scotland would be worth +4 even if you did add another territory.


Understood, geographically there are definite options for adding a territory but as far as gameplay is concerned I really feel like Scotland has enough territories.

New version to come soon. Maybe, very soon.

if the sea routes are definite, maybe you can try to do them a little crooked...

I was referring to a specific "change" in the sea routes. In graphics I assure you that the sea routes will get a make over.

If your looking for another territory in Cornwall, you could add The Scilly Isles, just off the West Coast of Cornwall (about 26 miles) Its Celtic name was Ynysek Syllan

Ok here is the new version! As you can see I made the change in sea connections at the bottom and raised Cornwall to +2. I haven't added the territory to cornwall officially yet but take a look at this:

Those Islands aren't a bad idea. Here is how I am proposing that they "fit in".

You might want to move the southern end of the Finistere-Asturias connection further west, so that it doesn't run through the word "Morbihan". And if you do that, you might also move the word "Asturias" west as well.

Basically the Islands take on the role that the territory Cornwall previously did. It absorbs all of the sea connections, before they can reach the mainland. Allowing an area that can be defended from the sea.

Is this the closest you could bring Ynysek Syllan to the Cornwall peninsula? Right now it doesn't quite look like they form a single continent.

Looks fine gameplay-wise, though. Don't forget to update the first page.

New update. I made the Islands a permanent fixture. (btw if any one knows how ynysek syllan is supposed to be pronounced please clue me in.) I also made that territory a neutral start and bumped Stonehenge up to a 3 neutral start.

You could put the neutral troops on the map for now, it'll make it easier to evaluate the gameplay.

Interesting, the pretty much all seem to be around .50 points higher than where I put them. To me that says that we can either bump them all up one or leave them where they are. Given the small size of the map I'm inclined to say leave them, except maybe for Brittany. I think +2 is a good amount for it but my friends wanted to see it worth 3.

Well, it's really up to you. I agree that rounding the bonuses down makes sense given the small size of the map.

:D Yay! I gotta tell you I'm glad to be in graphics. I think there's a lot that can be done here to highlight the Celtic feel of this map. The first thing (that I'm going to get on right away) is make the sea connections look pretty.

Please fix the frame of the minimap. It's been really bothering me but I haven't said anything because we weren't in graphics...

The way the edge of the map shows through the frame... it just looks weird. Either make the frame solid or cut off the excess from the map...
