Good job L.P.

My suggestions:
Saint John's could be St. John's. That's generally how it's spelled, plus it might look neater.
Grandfalls could be Gross Morne.
Sainte Barbe, which I've never actually even heard of, could be L'Anse aux Meadows, which a pretty populated area.
Also, I agree with the PEI/Cape Breton border. Cape Breton should border with Halifax instead.

So stoked.

Gros Morne is actually further North than originally thought... so:

The most northern one could be:
Gros Morne **
Long Range
Barr'd Harbour

The south-east one could be:
Grandfalls **
Codroy
St. George's Bay

St. John's should stay.
**Indicates my favorites.

One other thing: Magdelan Islands... maybe Iles de la Madeleine. It's part of Quebec, and should probably be written in French.

I'd also like to second the motion to move this to the Foundry.

Glad to see the bridge between Cape Breton and Halifax... you know it's actually a 4.5 hour drive?

So, what's the next step? I've looked over all the borders and connections and they all look pretty good to me.. although I'm no specialist.

Does someone start on the XML now?
Do the circles have to be a certain size or color?
Does the title need to be added to the map? Is Gulf St. Lawrence the working title? I think it's appropriate.
Is there a Quebec specialist around to verify all the territory names there?

Ok, you are all just being butts now, i came up with this, i came up with the names and the territorys, the conts, the conections(most of them(and L.P, you missed the connection from Gros Morne to Cartwright)).

Make your sig smaller also LP... :roll: Also i think you might want to add the lakes back in, it i think would look better. I am also going to do the XML.

I don't really see the need for the border between Gros Morne and Cartwright. Newfoundland is currently only worth 2 as a bonus, adding another border seems silly. All the rest of the bonuses seem good to me; I would have made them the same if i had been making it I think. Except for maybe the one with 3 territories (Duplessis, Gaspesie, Anticisti). It's worth 3 right now and only has three territories. Is there a way to add another territory somewhere... maybe cut up Duplessis into two? The rest of the borders look fair to me.

The colors in New Brunswick and the main part of Quebec are a little tricky, they look pretty similar.

you need to add continent names on the legend.

The Family Guy monkey will most likely come under copywrite, so using it as your sig is probably a no-no.
