Another shot from <b>Yurian</b>: from an unreleased version (1.2) of his H3:SoD map "Viking Invasion".

This is not "his" map because it is from the second expansion. "A Viking We Shall Go" to be precise. No, I don't have problem with that. But don't write like he made this map. Because he improved it, NOT MADE.

Let's see:
France is dirt
Eastern Europe is dirt
The Balkans are hell
Corsica is larger than Sardinia
Britain is ruled from Edinburgh
Ireland is ruled from Ulster
France is ruled from Bordeaux
Venezia is not on an island
Karelia and Petsamo are Finnish

Yeah, I think that pretty much sums it up. ;)
You forgot about Norway, which is a snowy white peninsula of perfection! :-D

Genuine Soothsayers are hard to come by these days. Luckily, it just so happens that I have the pleasure of knowing personally one of these truly elusive people: myself. Not only did I way back in 2003 predict that I'm going to become a father in the year 2012, which really turned out to be the case, but I also made another famous prophecy. That was in 2008 when I had a vision of the future and instantly wrote it down for future safekeeping. (please excuse the pun) Here's what I wrote down in August 14th 2008. It seems to be about a map of a sorts. Let's read what the note says.

"*Please note that the map uses elements of official NWC map called
"A Viking We Shall Go!". Interestingly, I started doing my own map loosely
based on Viking era Europe because I was rather disillusioned with 3DO's poor
geographical description of Northern Europe. In my version, especially this
updated one, you'll see that the in-game map of Europe is quite accurate."

It's a good thing that I wrote down this prediction of mine in pure prose.
Who knows what might have happened if I'd written it down in four-line verses.
Don't worry if things are going badly today. They will be much worse tomorrow.

But unfortunately, there's no shipyard next to Oslo.

Wow, easy to be a critic, isn't it. I did a search on Maps for ywhtptgtfo and got no (zero) hits. So unless you create maps using a different name, you have not made any maps. "Those who can't become teachers" - or critics.

I'd assume it was obvious that it was written all for fun. But I have a feeling that neither the Amish nor plumbers are known for their sense of humour. Not the towering ones, at least.

If I ever need to deal with a towering Amish plumber, I'd be sure to show a great deal of respect. :S

The Netherlands, a castle, a mill and a trading post. Pretty accurate in my opinion.
