I like it!
The background graphic is a bit too busy to my eye, makes it hard to see the road layout - can it be knocked back a bit?

I suppose I could reduce the opacity of those coats-of-arms...

Well heck. This looks pretty sweet. Kabanellas has definitely proven himself as a capable cartographer and Kings Court 1 has it's fans (not me I sucked hard when I've played it :( ). So uh yeah.

I'm going to go ahead and sticky this for a draft stamp. If anyone has a reason this shouldn't advance now's the time to speak up.

Or you could do what I do with just about every map: plunge into it with reckless abandon and complete disregard for a decent strategy and just get a feel for the map, whilst enjoying yourself, despite your confused, disgruntled opponents resent for your nonsensical actions.

I came here to say this. The background overwhelms many of the borders/roads. Some tweaking of the opacity should do the trick.

Otherwise, freaking awesome. I'll come back when I've properly digested the gameplay. I think my large intestine is just having one of those days.

Did I say I like the colours? Awesome colours! I'll admit I'm not much of a fan of the first one, partly because of how it looks. This one is very beautiful though.

Thanks guys!

I've turned down the opacity of all coat-of-arms and made the roads stand out more. I've also placed all starting neutrals.
All other regions (apart from the Castles and Nobles which are starting points) will start with 1 neutral troop on them.
