what else?

1)Make South Meso-America 3?
2)what about where the two meso americas meet? draw a border right on the edge of the paper?

3)connect the Victoria to Tarascan?

4)neutrals on the boats and Nimiipuu?


1) I would be more inclined to increase North Meso America by 1 - see point 3 ;)


2)I'd say draw the line on the edge of the paper to divide the two meso americas to avoid any confusion.

3)Yes connect the Victoria to Tarascan.

4)2 neutrals on the boats and 3 on Nimiipuu.

well then I would wanna increase south by one also, since they both have three borders, and the south has one more territory than the north.

Yes, but the Niña was his favorite.

So i still vote call it the Niña or find an image with 3 ships and call it the Niña, the Pinta and the Santa María.

the Nina is the only one that made the complete trip.. he started out on the Santa Maria..

same as the Victoria, the guy started out on the Trinidad.. but it didn't work out so well..


I picked Victoria and Nina.

This looks awesome. Hope it makes it through foundry quickly, since the maps are already established.

Did you seriously use the words "foundry" and "quickly" in the same sentence?

You shouldn;t need to draw a border at all; if you want to enhance it, just add slightly more shadow where the pages overlap. This should be more than sufficient.

Actually, I would suggest reverting back to something almost like you had originally for the connections on the Pacific ocean side of the map. With the proximity of the connections across both sides of the map, the Meso-Americas become even more of a bottle neck; having the cross-map connections converging in the middle sort-of defeats the point of adding them in the first place?

If the path across the sea is redrawn to go beneath the bird and around it to the left, then it would be a better approximation of actual established sea trading routes. I'd take the path from Diaguita to Romo to reflect actual sailing routes:

Thanks, IH, just in case she didn't get it the first time, lol...

Would you mind posting your updated map so far, Tisha? It sounds like you've been making the changes, but it'd be nice to see them as you go.

Okay I see what Mr.Benn is talking about now.

You shouldn;t need to draw a border at all; if you want to enhance it, just add slightly more shadow where the pages overlap. This should be more than sufficient.


Or you can do what he said :D

This is just a nit pick - do you need your name on both halves? Doesn't matter either way.

Having the connecting territories further apart makes the Meso-Americas slightly more defensible, and a better place to start. Diaguita in the South and Pomo in the North would be suitable ;-)
