Thanks Arakor I see it on the map now. But I don't see botkinburg, the hrusen river or the barren wood. Or are they just unmapped and "fudge it" :)

<t>Bow's are always underpowered in fantasy games anyway (except perhaps GURPS which actually applies math and physics to create its damage and hit point system).

Will Aihrde be fully developed or will it go poof as Castle Zy* seems to have done?

River problems

<t>It seems to me that putting CZ/Yggs in an existing is problematic due to the rivers. If the rivers were left out I think it could be plunked into any Medieval/Renaissance era campaign area but those rivers keep giving me a hard time for where to put it.<br/> _________________<br/> thank you,<br/>...
