It's Carrousel (2 r's), not Carousel. You have it right in the legend, but not on the map.
If you're going to keep the top line in English, you should probably write Catholic, not Catholique.
Title: "à" means "in" or "at." To say "of" write "de." Though you'd probably be best off just avoiding all that and calling the map "Massacre à Paris."

What is the point of the royals? Is there a bonus or anything with them?
It seems kind of crazy that there is a global +1 on all duelers, but its just crazy enough, I think it will work.
There are no black pants in the bottom buildings. Are these ones unassailable?
Also, the lines don't entirely make sense.
Can CA attack CD? Why or why not?
Many of the circles sit on top of the pants. If the pants are important to see which color, the circle should not be on top of them.
DoomYoshi wrote:Ok. It makes sense now. In the legend, the main guy should be highlighted (the bottom green guy) or arrows should be added. I was reading that as from any guy in that diagram, you can attack any other guy. I was expecting you to say CA can attack CC.
On the royal bonuses:
Ok, so imaginary 8-player game. You start with 14 territories (I count 118 starting in total). This means that you have +14 every turn just for the fencers. You also have +4 for holding 12 or more territories. With a basic starting bonus of +18 in even the biggest games, the royal bonus will have to be something like a +20 autodrop to be meaningful.
With the new conditional bonuses, is it possible to code +1 autodrop on Green soldiers if Henri de Navarre is held? That would make for an awesome game I think.

First impressions on game play is another cairns map (complicated) but you said it was simple. So why was it complicated, that may be down to the graphics you have chosen for this draft and the way to have connections.
Graphics, not going to comment on as you always get to the standard needed (but I will say this seems a little hurried, even for you No offence intended).
With the army circles on the men, it is hard to see the black shorts.
H20 looks like he has the advantage because he has a sub machine gun.
Without normal territ lines or territs, I believe you are going to have a lot of trouble with players over what attacks what. Red and green for the men, can a different colour be found for one of them (for CB reasons).
Have you sent nobodies or isaiah a quick PM yet over the size issue?
While you are at it, it might be wise to think about increasing the height. That would take care of a lot of problems later.
DoomYoshi wrote:Yea, the same could apply for Catholics, and then the 2 women could offer regional multipliers.
All I was saying by counting terts is that if you already have a huge bonus to start, taking neutrals for another bonus should also be huge. I think +1 auto deploy on every soldier sounds exciting. Then it changes to +2 if you hold the leader. The regional bonuses will have to be bigger too, to make sense for attacking them.
How do you feel if we run the bonus through the usual calculator, and double them for the baseline bonus (so if calculator says +7, we make it +14 instead). Then each princess doubles it again. (if you hold one princess, your regional bonus is now worth +28 and the other princess makes it +56).
Of course, there will need to be very large neutral stacks on the royals, we should aim to have them not conquer able until turn 5, except of course with unlimited reinforcements.
Final note: these are pretty radical ideas we are working with, but if you can pull this off cairns, this has a definite chance to be a legendary map. The difficulty lies in the balance, and I foresee a lengthy stay in the final forge for this one while everything is worked out.
koontz i shall not fogive you for not posting before this...you should know better than that
Well it is simple!
I am not offended, but i am indeed surprised you chose to travel this road with this comment.
Gees, koontz, the instructions say * Only duelers in black pants in front of buildings sections can assault same section
so i can clearly see there are only 3 at the top and 2 at the bottom who have black pants on.
Yes well, you would have to go there.
I can increase the height no probs, but what problems are you forseeing that you haven't told me about in the communicae.
