That seems and looks pretty cool. Well done!

I especially like the idea of "personal hero"...but do you play him as a great person, or is he supposed to be a permanent bonus (thereby making him an immortal great person)?

Also, have you played with your version of Japan in the board game?

He played as a great man, just personally in Japan. This great person is subject to the rules of the game. The great man is different just because it works on the Japanese and brings additional RESOURCES. Incidentally, he gives not a lot of bonuses, as it may seem. Yes, played a good balance. I advise.

It will be very hard to explore from that tile in some board arrangements (such as 3 player board the position at the top of the pyramid). I would recommend another land space in the other top corner.

The map looks a bit like the one the Spanish have, with an important difference being in the fact that the Spanish have movement +1.

The problem:
- Spanish can do
-- move onto water tile
-- discover new tile
-- move on

- Japanese can do
-- move onto water tile
-- discover new tile
-- discover their movement has run out and move on (drown)

The last part is an illegal move (obviously), so the Japanese can't reveal new tiles from a water space, limiting their exploring units to 3 locations on the entire map...

This looks amazing!

A few questions;

Are there any other of these, for other civs, anywhere? I have done a search around forums and cant find any :S

Also how did you do the art work for this? i would love to have a try myself and maybe create Aztecs/Babylon and maybe Celts.

Lastly what would you put the artwork on? just some tough cardboard? i would also maybe look into creating some custom random map tiles and i would like to make them as random as the others (so they would obviously have to be as close to real as poss)

Thanks, and Kudos!
