Since I've mentioned them twice, I tried to google the Tunimiut. I came up with nothing. ??



:oops: I know i pulled it from one of my maps somewhere.. Tunumiut .. a typo

the whole arctic area are all Inuit.. it's hard to find names for any of them. lingustic stock might be a better way to sort the arctic areas.. no? I don't know.. you should show my how you think it should be divided, and I'll name the territories..:P

I really love this map so far and I'm looking forward to playing it.
I'm not feeling the canoes though, they seem out of place to me. I also agree with oak that the Arctic region might need to be re-examined.

great basin is a geographic feature north-west is a compass direction
as native didn't knew compass you may find some geographic feature for those 3 legend region names
and I was thinking of icons in front of legend region names not territories
and sorry for being pedant about 888

I am pleased to issue this map the draft stamp on behalf of the foundry community.

Welcome to the Foundry Proper!


About Arctic and sub arctic zones, this is how i see that zones.

show

obviously , you can split/merge in a different way, but i think that reducing the number of territories could be a double good choice:
1. More sense of few people living in these zone.
2. Easier to hold, generally when a zone has more than 7 territories is left as "the final zone in which i have to kill enemy troops before winning".

This is a beautiful map, you 're doing a great work Tisha! =D>

Give every man your ear, but few thy voice. Take each man's censure, but reserve thy judgment.

Tisha, congratulations.
I have to say this is the best map i've seen come into the foundry colour-wise. I hope you don't have to change much more of it.

Nah what she means is there has been a good bit of talk already about the color blind people having a hard time with this map. She was hoping you were as this would mean the problem is solved.

i think being colour blind i can say that great basin, mesoamerica, northeast woodlands look the same but with the name order any colour blind person with a brain should be able to tell them apart. Due to the fact all are separate from each other

nice work =D>

As with any Colorblind issue, I always favor of labeling continents/zones on the map---for instance Oaktown's Indian Empire map, Middle East map, DustBowl, High Seas---I realize the last few weren't specifically named because of a colorblind issue---but the sentiment of naming zones on the zones is exceptionally helpful.

map is looking good. i think the colors of the regions look fine except for the "Plateau" because it is so small - took me a while to find it. I would try switching it with one of the brighter colors on the map to make it stand out more.

my only other gripe is using "Dine" instead of Navajo. i realize that they call themselves Dine (with an acute accent over the E, actually) in their language, but this map is in English and that tribe is widely recognized as Navajo (which they also use to refer to themselves). I appreciate the need for space-savers, but I blinked at the map for a couple minutes in shock at their exclusion before I finally made the connection. i think you're better off cutting into the extra space in Nemene and change it back to Navajo.

i disagree with Pamoa's suggestion for geographic names rather than compass regions, but some suggestions if you go that route:
NW = Coast Mountains
NE Woodlands = Great Lakes
SW = Desert lowlands?
SE = ? Swamps ?
as for Artic & Sub-Artic, how about Artic & Tundra?

Lastly - the trees should definitely be pine trees that far north (the current trees looks deciduous) and there really shouldn't be ANY trees in the Artic.

This map is freaking gorgeous graphically =)

I, personally, really like the trees.

I feel like the rivers are too solid of a color however, though that may be my monitor calibration.

They seem to be too bold of a stroke to match the rest of the map. Are they unclear as impassable if a little less solid?
