    @EKO:

    Yeah- russia or Ummat al-mu'minin or canada really need players- also Magreb union, AU6, Colombia, Sultanates are strong and need players.

    @KOZMOS:

    okay.

    The real map is much larger it just seems to resize when i upload on tiny-pics. I'll try to upload a bigger map (with labels) soon enough. The deformity is based on the fact that its based on a higher water-level map taken by NASA. It is elongated horizontally at the poles but there's not a lot i can do about that to be honest. I'm not going to make a new one from scratch as this one as a ton of work already.

    I hope you join anyway. A map thats slightly deformed is a bad reason not to play. And then what would people think of you? More importantly what would you think of yourself? How could you even live with yourself?

    Peer pressure peer pressure. LUCKY LUCKY LUCKY. So come on? I mean... come on.... join up already.

    Go ahead. Turn zero update was the timeline i guess.

    [First short!]

    Jonathan Kobiate leaned on the railing of his watch tower, staring blankly at the mundane features of night-time Nairobi, paradoxically alert for anything out of the ordinary: when you saw the same thing often enough, the odd became more noticeable. The other three men on this tower were in the hut, playing cards. Officially, three men should be outside at all times, but few towers ever followed that rule, except the ones near the sports fields, which had the opposite problem. Without moving, he smiled softly and whispered over the rail into the darkness below.

    “You’re late.”

    “Oh, shut up.” Came the whispered response, follower a moment later by a small figure in camouflage clothing. “Traffic was terrible.”

    “Really? That infestation traceur back? Or was it mimes this time?”

    “Traceur mimes. They run on invisible walls and roofs.”

    “Riigghhtt. Anyways, anything t report, Kat?”

    “Naaahhh,” Katarina replied, pulling back her hood to run her fingers through her short hair. “Well, their some talk that the Council should re-issue their statement on freedom of religion for the benefit of those merchants from Ummat Al-Mu’minin.”

    Jonathan snorted, then replied “As if that would do anything. Those Islamic Traders have always wanted more than everybody else. They won’t be happy until the Council is paying for their mosques, even if none else get anything like that.”

    Katarina just shrugged. She back home her Order often got supplies from the Ummat Al-Mu’minin, particularly for usages the Russians, but she had been sent here by her Patriarch at the request of the Ethiopian Patriarch for the purpose of aiding in the liberation of his people from the Persians, but one commando-nun was hardly going to get the job done, was she? On the plus side, the Patriarch’s letter was enough to get her a good position with the Revolutionary Special Intelligence, which gave her something to do while waiting for the inevitable war between the New Day and the Persians.

    “Anyways,” Jonathan said, calling Katarina’s attention back to the present. “This part of the city is going to have our-black out in a few minutes, so you should get going. Roofs a dangerous enough without the street lights.”

    “Right. I’ll see you tomorrow.” Katarina said as she climbed over the railing. When she was gone, Jonathan turned back to the cityscape. Even when the power went off a few minutes later, he still remembered his families stories. Nairobi was much the same as before the Fall for most of the people.

    Coolio- welcome.

    K- eko didn't really commit, so you go for it- theres lots of powerful nations left for eko to pick up.

    Awesome.


    Regarding the map- i'll update with labels within a few days or a week.

    I somehow missed ekolite's expression of interest in Russia. :sad:

    If ekolite appears to confirm his reservation, I consider Al Muninin a second choice.

    Could you also try for one with the overlayed with a modern (August 2011) political map (national borders)?

    I would actually prefer one with terrain and modern cities; orders are hard to give without context!
