Oh, and Happy Christmas:

This would make it more worth the 5. As a rule I generaly just make bonuses the amount of borders and then +1 for every 6 territories that can attack it and +1 if it has more than 6 territories. (the more than six is because at 6 you get an extra +1 for numbers to territs held most of the time) THis would make the sea greens a bonus of 4 as it stands now.
I think your right about making B&B a 2, but I dont really want to make skane much harder to hold-Its a rather central crossroads as it is so I think it is more or less solid in it's bonus. Perhaps a connection from burgandeland to vaetland or barae would be better as they are already boardersTaCktiX wrote:- Your small continent bonuses I think are a little off. Blekyng & Burgendaland is 3 territs, defend 2 against 2. In most other maps, that's a 1.5, so the 1 is okay. Considering that to expand from B&B is to two different +4 continents, anyone dropping there is more or less screwed compared to someone who dropped North (fairly easy +3) or South Jutland (a +4). Look into making it a +2 and adding another connection to Albo (that'd solidify Skane as a +4 in my mind).
I'd keep it where it is as north offers expantion into Halland while south is a dead end.- North Jutland is 5 defend 2 against 4, whilst South Jutland is 4 defend 2 against 3. That's a tough situation where you could argue North Jutland goes to 3, but I leave that to you.
Typo.- Is Reign actually spelled Regn in Dutch, or is that a typo (the legend)?
I'll work on that- not something I know how to do atm but I'm always looking to new skills.- While the bolder colors are easy to see on the legend, some of the lighter tones (like B&B) are hard to read. Perhaps a subtle outer glow on all of them that's tan in tint.
I'll have a fiddle- Sweden is really dang small, making the fact that there's another country up there not as obvious. A little larger font size should help. You can create the same effect for the HRE by broadening its length while not changing its height.
Was the danish flag and symbol of the early kingdom- Is there a significance to the bird in the top left that I missed?
I'll look into that, (though I might just get rid of it entirely)- The island off Lyuthgud is too small to create a color, and thus looks like a screw-up instead of a right and nice island. Perhaps making it a smidge larger for the sake of consistency should do the trick (no other island is pure black).
Vlademar had better defend his territory well, for this map got

The fyun and islands is four terr with three borders. sounds like +3 to me.
Your water connections are going to be missed in several areas. People are going to be caught off guard. Try out some other styles for them.
This map is in dire need of a mini map. The legend is almost impossible to read. Making it readable doesn't necessarily fix your need of a mini-map.

I'm not so familiar with the Swedish part of the map, so I've only made one suggestion there.
Hope you can use it.
EDIT: A little research tells me that Haelsingoer was indeed not of great importance at this time in history, it gained importance later on. It is, though, mentioned by Valdemar in 1231, so it did exist, but as a simple fishing town. I'll leave that decision up to you.
And another thing: the straight between Thytae and Harthe was in fact not a straight but sanded shut (don't know how to say that in English) from 1100 to 1825 allowing passage from one region to the other. That is perhaps a detail.
And, with a very few exeptions, he's spelled Valdemar Sejr (not Vlademar, althgough it's a Danish version of Vladimir).
Balsiefen wrote:Mostly implemented: Hathaerslef, Slaulosae and Haelsingoer are unfortunately too long to fit in their countries and Roskeldae is touch and go even when I shorten it to it's modern name Roskilde. Also I cannot find any other sources supporting names either way so I'm trusting anyone who can find improvements.

this is a german name, the modern danish name being femern.

Fehmarn (dänisch Femern) ist die drittgrößte der deutschen Ostseeinseln und Teil von Schleswig-Holstein.
there is some evidence that the name in the time of king knud the great (1022) was fembre.

will u have room for roskilde as the capital city of denmark and "the biggest town in medieval northern europe", perhaps given a similar treatment as moscow in pepperonibread's soviet union? if u're pushed for space, then maybe a crown-shaped army shadow on both map and legend will suffice.
This former medieval capital of Denmark at the end of Roskilde fjord is not far from busy Copenhagen.
Already in the 10th century Roskilde was a residence for kings and bishops, the first stone church, Saint Clemens´, was build in 1030.
It was considered to be the biggest town in medieval northern Europe with 5 to 10, 000 inhabitants.
moon is actually spelt møn or moen.

i also agree with madsanders that lund must be included instead of barae.
From the 13th century Lund was Denmark's most important city - a city from which the archbishops exercised ecclesiastical power over all of Scandinavia.
