After playing for some time i think it isent that bad, i only think its a shame that on some parts of the map the hexes and signals from the houses just fade away compaird to the rest of the map... cant you give that a touch more inkt so you can see them beter but without ruining the looks of the map...

What do you mean with " Admiral is the only Counselor that can drop troops from the Court to a non-bombard region"?

You could remove the bonus from the ports... but giving them a -1 bounes doesent make any sense. then you might as wel take his bounis away compleetly and just make him a one way assult route...

If you ask me you should give the admiral only the +1 for every two ports or he can only one way assult all ports.

I know what you mean... I did tried a lot around it, but couldn't get to a solution where you could see the houses coat-of-arms and still see everything that's going on in the map behind them... I'll test it some more though

The fact that you can transport troops between your castles through the Court is very important - That's why the King plays a vital part here, apart from having line of sight to all castles, obviously. With the Marshal you can also move troops but they will be stuck on Archer units making their use more limited. The Admiral on the other hand can actually move troops from one castle or noble for instance, to another Port on a different quadrant and that's very useful.

I want it to keep this ability, though.. because making it a bombard unit only, with such a limited range (11 ports only) and limited bonus capability would make it useless compared to the other counselors....

Perhaps +1 for every 2 ports is a good compromise.

But on the other side does this map have to be so ballenced? i mean docks are all central even if someone takes them all he wil have the rest of the map against him or her...

I still have to check out the house of cardinals, but I kind of like the way the map is... 8-)

In my game, I did not know that you could not reinforce out of a trebuchet. Now I about to lose over 40 troops just because I did not know that. It doesn't say anywhere on the map. Can you please change the map such that you can reinforce out of a trebuchet some-other people might have had the same problem as me.

You can read in the legend, concerning the Trebuchet:

-Reverts to 4 neutral

(which is the way we commonly refer to killer-neutral regions here on CC)

What he describes isn't a killer neutral. He was describing a tert that can only bombard and not attack. Now, all of us who played KC1 would understand that you can't attack, but it doesn't say that in the legend. He's right, it should be there somewhere. Perhaps add: 'Trebuchets can only bombard'

Actually, it does say that already, in the upper right corner:
"Archers, Catapults and Trebuchets can only bombard unless stated otherwise."

I wonder - does it just not stand out enough? Could it somehow be emphasized more?

I think it's fine. I just didn't read the whole legend when I went back to check if it was there the first time. I looked only in the trebuchet portion of legend. Maybe there could be something in the archer, catapult, and trebuchet section that says: 'See Notes'

Yes, I tottaly agree.

In addition if you want to let it as it is you should change the bonus rules of the map. At the moment it is clear that with every 2 knights and a castle you take +1 which does not happen

Lastly I think the King is extremely strong. People will just the king and stack there like crazy. The -5 per castle is not enough. For example look game 11126126. I had only 12 troops at the king and blue attacked me and put half his army there making his bonus bigger and having access to anyone

After playing more, I agree with mc. The King is quite strong once you have a sufficient number of terts. I would make it a little more costly.

Even if I have played only one game I do not like it at all that the knights +EVERY castle does not give a bonus. It makes the castles pretty useless. The +2 of the castle is very little in a map that a player can have 30 troops due at an 8 player game. In addition the penalty of having the counselors+castle or the King+castle making the castles not worthy
