corn farm and corn mill, wheat field and bakery - considering what happened these resource pair are now useless - they should be removed from the map or in terms of accuracy remain but without any bonus ie a useless resource pair. some new rescouce pair should probably relace them but in a manner that counteracts the imbalance I have outlined below
new resource pairs added above

Aoria 3 terr.
Xi 4 terr.
Figye 5 terr.
Mua 5 terr.
Ghyr 6 terr.
Borun 5 terr.
yep the distances are right. they will be tweaked to have the same neutrals value despite the diff number of terits.

i don't want all the water to be frozen, it's common knowledge that where the watter is deep it doesn't freeze.
but the buildings and bridges can be frozen. only problem is that this would make them harder to see.

look at post above
rebelman wrote:to redress the distance from sanctuary issue some secret passageways / tunnels could be included that take you to the island as IMHO no territory should have a significant advantage in taking the sanctuary and neutrals can solve this problem only to a certain degree - one possible secret passageway could be between Gunn and Duht
hmm not fond of that secret passage because:
1. need explanation in legend and i don't have space
2. logical reasoning
3. graphic representation.
rebelman wrote:getting back to my frozen ports idea if Rhit port was frozen over the people of that kingdom might have built a new port at Ieme which immediatly adds another terr. between Aoria and the sanctuary (and addresses an issue some (not me) had with chapter 1
but then aoria would have the advantage of taking 2 villages without having exposed itself by taking a dock. aoria would become too powerful.
rebelman wrote:if my proposed secret passage between gunn and duht was added along with the freezing of rhit to be replaced by Ieme all 6 castles would be 4/5 terrs. from the sanctuary
i still would like to balance through neutrals.
