Version 4 (22/08/2008)
I've added in some pale contour lines to help indicate the reason for the wonky compass. The compass has been faded into the background a bit more so it doesn't jump out so much. I've tried to smooth the dragon outline a little too...
I've updated the 'poetic' text to include the attack rule - how is it for clarity?
The overlapping army numbers have been nudged around a bit, and I've tweaked a border :-$
On the subject of border-tweaking, I've amended the Flint border to get rid of the exclave :shock: - purely to assist gameplay.
I've run the region bonusses through a calculator and taken off the amount you'd get for holding the Shire pairs. The English area should really be a +5, but I've upped it to a 6 to add to the confusion in foggy games ;-)
Oh, I've also adjusted the Cardigan/Montgomery/Merioneth border to make it clearer.

Mr Benn *waves*

I very much love how this map looks at the moment. I have 1 small annoyance at the moment thou, the water at current I feel needs a little colour. I think a blue glow with a larger spread than that of your continents is needed. Would you give it a try for me please?
What do you know about map making, bitch?

Anglesey is an island, which is why the two land-areas don't touch. ;-)
Do I really need to draw in a connection/bridge? Isn't it blindingly obvious that the two areas border? I mean, where else is Anglesey going to be able to go??
My preference would be to leave it as is, unless there is a mass revolution [-X

I spent a while playing around with some sort of outer glow for the sea, but forgot to click the magic 'save' button #-o :lol:
Consider this on my (hopefully small) 'to-do' list!

Benny - love it.

Reckon you should go with the English can attack english borders - and welsh current territory - and vice versa approach.

In your rhyme you say... "Exert your power over a whole shire and 1 army you shall acquire" -> and then go-on to mention "unto your hand" for "continent bonuses"...

I'm pretty sure you meant this to mean a +1 "continent" bonus for holding both english & welsh bits? - But Acquire *could* be perceived as meaning auto deploy. (which can't be done of course!)

C.

PS -> I'm assuming your welsh is correct?

Reckon you should go with the English can attack english borders - and welsh current territory - and vice versa approach. I've erred away from this, in an attempt to avoid trying to explain it in rhyme, and to avoid ugly attack lines

Your understanding is correct... As for the *possible* misinterpretation, I can see where you're coming from... but can't I take some poetic license?

Most likely!!! (In fact - most people on this website don't know that autodeploy bonuses exist!)

I myself would prefer some type of bridge or link or something............

However, the map is soooo pretty, I can't imagine putting anything there without it being a blight on the map.....

So I vote that we leave it.

I'm loving this map. I find the doubled armies to be a great idea. Excellent fresh gameplay. Can't wait to play :)

The names on this map are going to be killer...probably similar to Iceland and Malta. :)

MrBenn you forgot about one of the most imprtant places on the welsh map.

"Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch"


You can't miss this one out [-X

If you show me how to fit that inside a territory (along with the English translation) the size of the village, I'll put it on ;-)
