Ok, over in the upper-left hand corner. On the small version the troops are allmessed up. Set the trrops to under the names of the countires and not on the land masses in this case, because the land masses are so small and close together.

A really nice map, but

*spell check troll on*

"unpassable" isn't a word.
Impassable.

*spell check troll off*

Sorry

While impassable may be the more standard, unpassable is still actually a word.

I should have checked a little further.
The word isn't found in most dictionaries, and seems to be a pretty new addition to the language. I'm going to say that it's a common error that has crept into usage, rather than being a full word yet. The web-sites that list it don't give sources, roots, or even a decent definition.

There's no question about its meaning, but I'd still say it's a mistake.

I'll stop being a pedant now, but I'm funny about these things. I'm looking forward to playing the map.

Just started one of your games mate. Very impressed....I like how the river seems to pass through the mountains.

Did you draw the mountains yourself?

Thanks hulmey...yes the mountains are my hand drawings....i think though you'll find that those are one-way land passes going through the mountains...the rivers (in blue) are on the edges of the mountains...sorry but kinda don't understand which ones u are looking at.

Played an RT on this yesterday with some ludicrously tough competition, and the verdict was two very enthusiastic thumbs up (especially from RL Orange). :D

I'll be very curious to see what sort of consensus emerges as far as strategy...

Well done, cairns. This is definitely one of the best new maps.
