Break it down for me?

both is right. I did not know from which era you will do the map. the true is that not only Normans united land, but after fall of Kent, South Saxe and Middle Saxe kingdoms the Heptarchy was past. in England were then 4 anglo saxon kingdoms - West Saxe, East Angle, Mercia and Northumbria.
and I think also from gameplay view is better to combine small bonuses... but as I wrote it was my opinion before you made decision to go with Heptarchy.
- names of regions must be changed. you have much of them modern. maybe you should go with anglo saxon names.
- maybe use "capitals" better as castles
- Wales was not unitied in these times
- Cornwall was not part of Wessex yet
- Cumbria was not part of Northumbria

The Normans had more than the 4 small bonuses but this will need to be addressed. Try and find a way to split Wales and the North into 2 to balance the north out a bit.

The Bison King wrote:Right but if it means that I'll have to change all those other things in your above post I think I'd rather just combine the bonuses and move on.
The Bison King wrote:I'd MUCH rather use castles, because they are way cooler. In fact the one of the biggest reasons I started this project was because I wanted to do a map with castles.
Again I know they had castles in this time, but they were made out of wood for the most part so they may be "permissible"

The Bison King wrote:I'd like to make Cornwall it's own bonus but it's just not big enough.
The Bison King wrote:Same situation it's just not big enough. Also if I add Cornwall and Cumbria we're looking at 10 bonuses not 8 and that's more than I want.
The Bison King wrote:So as you see it probably just makes more sense to combine East Anglia with East Saxons, and Kent with South Saxons and just do the whole Norman era instead. Which is kind of a bummer because I wanted to use those coats of arms on the final graphics. So a follow up question I would have for you is if I combine those regions what would I call them and what could I use as their coat of arms?
