I don't think so, I just started a thread to see if I could gather interest for more FN maps. I was hoping if there was a clamour for them, then it would be a good time to ask.

I'd like to see First Nations of Europe but I'm not sure it would be possible. It would have to be set before the time of the Romans but little is known about mid, west, north and eastern Europe of that time. Only the south do we know enough about.

I had no idea Australia had so many different peoples going on when the Euros came, not too surprising the Euros took control of the continent so quickly... what happened to the aboriginals? was disease as big a factor as it became in the Americas?


Disease? IH.
I don't think so much...more the impact of settlers arrogance with water and food supplies

Actually a celtic first nations has quite a bit of potential. The Romans did keep a record of where the original tribes were (even if other information is somewhat suspect) and they had a tendency to allow locals to continue with their own cultures (hence why wales is a celtic nation, not a sub-roman one).

Also maybe has the potential to be paired with germanic/slavic/baltic first nations maps. Although I have to say, both africa and australia have just as much potential as well.
