if the point is to gather all this info then come up with a plan and a suggestion and present it to lack asking for map classifications and categorizations then all i can say is: "good luck but i'm not gonna waste my time for something doomed from the start"


No,trust me that isn't the point. ;)
Btw if you had used all the time you spent to write the last posts, you'd already finished the map descriptions! :lol:

Nobodies



not really, but even if that were true, it would still have been wasted time, whereas my posts had the purpose of expressing my thoughts.
so it's not about time per se, but rather about the way that time is spent.

Let's just say that something is in the works rights now. So please do the write ups for all your maps, so the thing tnb80 is working on can be done.

Map Name:Thyseneal
Map Description A medium sized standard map that takes place in the fictional realm of Thyseneal. An ancient and blood soaked land in which kingdoms and empires continually struggle for power, and seek to expand their borders.

With shield in hand, and sword to wield,
Conquer thy foe, subsume his field,
Let carnage fertilize the earth,
Let strength in battle prove one's worth
For in in the end but one takes all,
In the epic land, Thyseneal!

Later in AD times the Normans invaded great Britain and pushed the Celts out of the heart of the Island. The only areas left with a Celtic cultural presence became known as the Celtic 7 Nations. Ireland, Scotland, Wales, The Isle of Man, Brittany, Cornwall, and Galicia.
