Koldar just mailed me a map, which he and Smith have worked on lately. It was designed in order to illustrate the downfall of the Empire of Korweyn, stretching over a periode of 20 years. Question of course is mainly how exactly we can integrate the map on the site properly... Still need to think about that in detail - proposals always welcomed of course:)

(click on map to see in in whole, the map below is just a small preview, where you don't really see much)

Is that pic I was talking about when presenting the Theodunn entry. Now, that entry needs an update and actually it will become more than one entry, so I guess we can link this pic in those entries? (one about Sylas, one about Theodunn, one about the Battle of Kormendale...)

Oh dear, and I 'm very poor with Santharian history, maybe I should start with Nybelmarian, before it gets too much, or is it too late already???

lol, Talia, is never too late methinks... :)  But you'll have quite a short reading (if any) on the site, most of the Nybelmarian history is in this forum - meaning it's still a work in progress.

what were the latest changes, Smith?

I think concerning implementation we must decide wether we keep the text within the map or add it as footnotes next to the map. Also the arrows need to be tighter so I'll have to revise that anyway.

ok, I saw you came back in force ;)   and to not keep you waiting here is on short what was planned for change:

- Theodunn and Sylas split the armies after the Siege of Cykosi, Sylas goes north (to "liberate") and Theodunn south (to "conquer" because I'm thinking that those cities will pose some resistance)
- The city of Methea is sacked
- Paenoi also decides to resist but Theodunn negociate a truth with them (he promises to let everyone alive except the clerics)
- Next step is a battle on Eypesh that ends in Theodunn's failure to cross the great river. The Korweynite river fleet suffered great losses also - which actually helps Sylas and Theodunn to find another crossing in the north.
- the Battle of Kormendale should be changed in "The Battle for Kormendale" and you should move those "swords" a little more to the east.
- The following territories (to Ontwana) are taken after Korweyn's capitulation (as the last centers of resistance crushed)
- Kosth also is taken after Kormendale and I guess it will suffer quite (seems logical thinking about the way we depicted Murmillions)

I also think that we should keep the text inside the map as it is easier to read this way (than with the text in a legend box), they are just names anyway.

PS. I'm sorry if I mispelled the names, I won't do that in the entries ;)

Arti, when you could tell me what the maximum resolution of this map should be I can work on the arrows and see if I can get the texts readable.


@Smith: River fleet? I'm not sure if that is something practical in a medieval setting, I only know about Germany and Russia having such fleets during WWII for Danube and Wolga?
We might think about a siege at one of the few points where one can cross the Eypesh. Or he had to use boats and failed to establish a bridgehead where he could move his army over the river...

Anyway, minor details, I'll see to make these changes so we can work the map into the entries you were preparing.

Maximum width for maps should be approx. 770 pixels so that they fit into a screen resolution of 800x600 without any scrolling problems:)

well, I must admit that I don't know very much about "river fleets" in middle ages... Still I thought I knew that the ancient egiptians used such boats on the Nile... Actually I guess it depends on how large Eypesh really is. I was thinking that with the Murmillion encroaching east of Eypesh the Koreynites built some boats able to sail the river to have some even better defenses (perhaps boats-platforms for catapults or something; or small and fast ships that might be used to prevent the building of such a bridgehead - the ancient romans in their first Dacian war used a boat-bridge over the Danube...) - and they had plenty of time to do that, as this war lasted pretty long with lots of drawbacks on either side (all these while the west bank of Eypesh always remained secured).

PS: Also deducing from this chain of events the Jerrah appear to be smaller than the Eypesh (that's why I always used "beautiful Jerrah river" and "great Eypesh river"...). right?
