Since comments are so few and far between on my france map, I have decided to take up a side project.. this is the roughest draft I have.

Things are slightly skewed, and the nile river is enlarged and centered because that was the center of egypt essentially.

I've got some ideas for the look of an ancient map I want to try out. I was going to put those ideas into GodStorm, but am choosing not to continue with that map.

reverend_kyle, if you want some help with this one, I'm keen to offer my services. 8)

More to do with the visual style. I could do another ancient/historic map myself, but we already have Ancient Greece, this one and qwert looking into other ancient maps. If you'd like me to provide you with an alternative base map to work off I can do that. If not, I don't mind, just thought I'd put forward the offer.

Gameplay ideas... I was thinking of trying to get some sort of god/mythology twist added. Some sort of extra bonus to symbolise power, but it probably would've just ended up being in the same vein as all these capital city bonus ideas floating around.

If it could be done, awarding an extra card could be something new!?!

I'll keep that in mind. For now, I'll await Andy's reply regarding GodStorm.

Back on topic though, I'm not a fan of that font. Or maybe it's just the style that's being used. Could you maybe put some different fonts in each continent so we can compare and discuss?
