    2 countries south of Celts. Celt didn't claim it.

    Due to my incompetence I mistook the Elfs for the Dragons.


    Question: Is there any gameplay difference between the races?

    Not really. That's mainly for roleplaying purposes, though it might affect unrest in certain situations. And if you're referring to the littleish one on the coast, that's Ichondor. I'll get a map with names up in a bit.

    :D What color? Or will you map out the claims?

    I'll map out the claims once I know more about the light blue race (which is listed as lesser dragons for lack of a better name)

    The Lesser Dragons are reclusive, but fiercely protective of their strongholds. They reside mainly in the mountains, and can easily be befriended and allied with. They regard Cel'aksh as their patron, however, which means that Celt might have a better bet at befriending them. They are a society where the females are more powerful then the males, meaning the traditional gender roles are reversed.

    For what they look like, think Asian-style dragons. I don't have any scenes with them yet, as the book takes place in the north.

    Anything else you'd like to know? They aren't common in Ichondor, they're just the only race that fit there.

    Nothing constructive is common in Ichondor - the Wastepaper Nation, as it's known unofficially. But that's the book - this is your chance.

    Damn, I really want to be an elf.
    Are the goblins hobgoblins or regular goblins?

    They're diminutive green men who like to drink beer and ride to war, all the while forging super shields and swords and holding an immense rivalry with the dwarves(tied to the greater dragons). What do you think? :p

    Actual goblins. Kepholon(your initial claim nation) is still open, as is the massive swathe of elven land near it(centralized in the elven nation of Ethara).

    LH, what effect will the different species have on gameplay?

    Not much, usually. It's mainly for roleplaying reasons, except for the fact that the species and areas you spawn in can affect which gods are inclined to support you and what heroes you get. There can be unrest generated along the races' lines though in some cases.

    No. Sorry but they aren't in the book for some good reasons. I may be using goblins, but I'm happier keeping the amount of species down to a level where they can all have some unique personality. It's one of the existing races.

    You can't claim overseas without a navy. I'll draw exception for minor cases like two islands in the same seazone, but not what you're doing. And I think I'll make it that you have to (at least in the opening turn) claim contiguous territories.

    EDIT: Here's the map with places and national names on it.

    Excellent! I'll speed up my timetable a bit if I can get two or three more players. I'll also give everyone a starting Hero when the first turn starts.
