Hi, I bought at Essen '11 the Casus Belli upgrade kit. It's ok, but I'm sorry I only have the Roman scenario. Is it possible to get the other one somehow or at least getting an high resolution file in order to get it printed?

Like water spilled on the ground, which cannot be recovered, so we must die. But God does not take away life; instead, he devises ways so that a banished person may not remain estranged from him. 2 Sam 14:14

There is pretty high-res. I don't think it's a balanced map, so it's not that great, but it could be useful if you were handicapping for a weaker player.

Why do you think that is not a balanced map?

Greeks seem to have an advantage to gain control over the "double" sea squares and get early navigators. By the way I still have to try if it's really unbalanced

There are chokepoints, which assuming both players expand aggressively, means Greeks will have easy access to enough cities to get to 15, while Persians will only be able to get to 10. Additionally, this means Persians have to invest more in early military or they will fall way behind economically.

Secondly, the Persian layout does not lend itself to efficient expansion. Up north, your ship can't get to one, and you are only likely to get 2 land cities with infantry before being blocked. If you send both units southward, then you have to have adjacent builds (at least 2).

Finally, as mentioned, the Greeks can easily get the Navigator bonus, but Persians will need more ships (or more moves).
