    Well, I guess it could have been worse. It looks like the Japanese island there has only mountains and desert. The French at least have a fresh-water lake and horses.

    Quite frankly, I'd abandon the game and re-roll a new start...but then, I'm not known for toughing things out. ;)

    The thing that would annoy me is your continent is tiny. But other than that It isn't the worst start location I've seen. I would play on.

    Sounds good to me :lol:

    Truth be told I'd generate another map or find a better capital spot for a jump.

    Not too bad. Had a start recently with nothing but mountains in the north, then a big desert followed by a huge jungle. Not a whole lot of food sources, but I guess I did have some resource opportunities....no horses though.

    Play on, see where it takes you.

    If any of you looked at the save, do you think I should move the palace to Adrianople?
