Despite all the silence we have been hard at work behind the scenes proofing counters/map art for the past few weeks. I just uploaded the map to the file section. This will be the final map unless someone finds an error. So after the upload is approved please look over it and see if we missed anything.

Thanks, Wray

It's up, and it looks great! Couldn't find any error.

Funny that your game ends exactly when mine (Tetrarchia) starts...

Yeah we had a contract artist work on the map for several weeks and then have to bow out due to work. So that delayed us a bit, but the good news is then Mark Simonitch took over the map. I really like what he came up with it.

I would like to point out that the region named Macedonia is a bit inclusive. Although the northern part of the region is definitely Macedonia, the western part is Epirus, and on the south there is also Thessaly, Achaia, Attica and Peloponnese included. I do not think that the name Macedonia was ever used as a geographical term to cover such a big area. The closest name that can apply would be Greece since this is the actual name Romans used to refer to the local population.

Thanks for the feedback. I will say that most of the provinces in the game are amalgams of actual Roman provinces (to suit the scale of the game), and we took liberties with the regional names. Would "Graecia" be a better name? (As far as I can tell, this is the Latin word for "Greece".)

Graecia is the correct Latin term of course.

"Graecia" was the name I chose in my game for the 'amalgam' of Roman provinces in that region.

EDIT/ In fact I needed the name for an even larger region, so 'my' Graecia covered the Greek provinces and the Thracian ones!

And yet I am mistaken.

Doing some research shows that area shown was provinces Epirus, Macedonia and Achaea. So it is essentially a matter of choice. If you prefer to use province name and include a larger geographical scale Macedonia is the better choice. If you prefer to use a geographical rather than a political distinction Graecia is better.

Just my two cents. Now go on and make the game already! We want to buy it!

We wanted to use province names to be consistent with the other areas, but thanks for looking over the map!

We are trying! Mainly it is a function of how quickly the art can be completed.

Thanks, Wray
