Funny thing, actually. It started off as a green field, and then I started tracing rivers into it so that I could make some bridges (I have some early drafts around here somewhere if you're really
interested. Very soon, the rivers looked completely out of place and it just seemed more apt to use islands instead. Also, it's easier to build islands around the gameplay I want than it is to place regions around other features.
Incidentally, I did actually consider a city design (which maybe fits the control regions idea better) with bridges that can be closed off, but I can't get the graphics to look how I want them - partly because it's a draft I merely want to see if I (or anybody else) actually like the concept.
Another fleeting idea is to have castles (à la Feudal War) with gates that can only be opened from the watch-tower sort of thing. Or something else with walls.
So...islands it is.
