Hi guys

I'm about to set up (in the next few months) another PBEM game and for it I require a map of either Ireland or all of Britain. It would be, ideally, a map divided up into areas rather than hexes and would preferably not have cities and roads

Its a longshot, does anyone have a good clue for this?

Thanks in advance

Well there is a GAME with a 'map' of "Ireland" called "Cromwell 2026"('go figure!') and here's the LINK to this:

Check it out and then check THIS other LINK out:

Cromwell
Yeah that map for Cromwell looks like it may have been useful for my purposes. I need a downloadable PBEM style map though

Cool links btw, I knew about Space-War before hand (cos I'm a geek!) but its always nice to read about the oldies!

Kingmaker?
Going into the deepest recess of my memory I thought Kingmaker may do the job. If you do a google search I'm sure there is PBeM site that may have a picture or two

one other thing
Why not SEE about obtaining an actual 'map' from the Library, or someplace, then 'scanning' this, and then USING that! Depending upon WHEN 'in history' you wish to SET your 'Game', you ought to be able find an appropriate 'one' I'd suppose. I've got one of the 'North American' English Colonial period that looks 'authentic' for its TIME! I'm hoping this will make a decent 'Strategic Movement' Map for something I have in mind. Best regards on this then!
cool
