Hi guys,

Inserted here is a starting map of Kathonia and the region we are playing in. I would like comments from all as I have a few but this is our game and I want you to share your input.

I will make a few comments myself as I reread over everyone's post.

Rich

One thing I will say now.

The whole area will be hexed into territories with ten hexes = 1 territory.

There will be neutral (no god) territories marked out where you guys can sneak up on each other and territories marked where there are known gods and there will be unknonw territories your gods have no knowledge of at this time.

For right now Ten territories will be known by your people with about 40 territories total on the map.

More on this as I think about it.

Oh and one more thing. 1 hex is one mile in diameter (from cross point to cross point).

Just to make sure I'm reading the map correctly--

The blue lines and shapes are rivers and lakes, and the dark inverted V shapes are mountain ranges (so far this is a no-brainer, I realize). The yellowish-tan region to the northeast is the western edge of the plains of Jasinu (though when I look at the color I think "desert"). The fuzzy-edged brown areas I'm guessing are forests, based on the observation that the really big brown patch is in the right place to be the Sea Ward Forest of Rhok-Kanmor. This, in turn, implies that the forest patch at the north edge of the map must be the southernmost tip of the Frost Ward Forest, and therefore the mountains west of the lakes are the edge of Rhok-Kanmor and the settlement marked by the fortress-looking icon in the northwest corner of the map must be a gnomish city of Pothma. The coastal settlement marked by an icon shaped like a Greek temple is of course the undine city of Jaash.

I'm unclear as to the location of the salamander holy area--I'm *guessing* that it's the clear area surrounded by mountains near the south coast? Which would make the range to the south and along the east coast the Horn Mountains....

I'm completely clueless about the clusters of little brown icons dotted around the map. Ruins? Human tribes? Small salamander forts/camps?

And which is the Central Lake around which our tribes are scattered? Is it the middle one of the three (slightly north of the others? The one closest to central Kathonia (the westernmost one)? Or is it a much smaller lake located somewhere else?

The lake region seems remarkably ... clear. Does this mean we should interpret "plain open space" on the map as dense rainforest/jungle/marsh?

Mind you, I'm fully aware that our human followers don't know *any* of this stuff, except possibly by legend and rumor told by travellers and/or passed from tribe to tribe. How much of this geography (and assicated hazards, such as slamander slave raiders to the south) do we godly PCs know?

(I frequently sound more confused than I am. I just think it's best to hash out all potential uncertainties right away, before they become miscommunications and eventually cause problems. Once I'm satisfied that the GM and all the main players have a similar mental image of the area, its resources, and our primitive peoples' capabilities, I'll stop the endless questioning. *g*)

Oh, and the nigh-invisible little tan "lumpy areas" around the mountain ranges are presumably hills, yes?
