Okay everyone, here is where we list what everyone wants country-wise.

Here is the world map.

Image

Ignore a lot of those colored in bits. That was Czech being artistic I think.

I, of course, claim Cascadia (Northwestern North America for those who forgot/don't know). And yes, I'm much bigger this time. :P I can also say that Rogue wishes to play the United States and Czech has claim to the South. In fact, the three of us have a pretty developed backhistory in mind. Czech also took the route of coloring modern Egypt for Siege I believe.

Also, Bluewolf filled in China for himself and what he thought was Shinn's desired holdings.

Okay everyone, pick your spots.

Well, I lay claim to the Byzantine Empire, with its extent indicated in this picture: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Map_B ... e_1045.svg, plus Sicily and down to Damascus and Jerusalem and maybe all of Italia and not just the southern tip. I am of course open to some degree of flexibility of course and that depends on how the points are distributed. I for one wouldn't mind extending my realm up the Transcaucasia.

Shinn, I'd like to ask if it is OK if I could hold onto Guangdong and Taiwan? I am willing to talk over this and I am just wondering if that'd be OK with you.

I'd like to claim the entirety of the Korean peninsula, along with Manchuria (which wasn't a traditional part of China until the Manchus came conquering). Additionally, the Kurils, Sakhalin island, the Kamchatka peninsula, and the area between manchuria and Sakhalin island (primorsky, half of khabarovsk, and half of Amur oblasts, along with the JAO, of present day russia).

With Zor claiming Japan, I've decided I need a buffer to protect from potential northern aggression. You can indeed have Taiwan and most of Guangdong province, but I still get to keep Hong Kong and Macau. Does that sound good?

In order to compensate for those losses, I'll be claiming Laos and Cambodia.

If it's not too much I'd like to claim Egypt, the Sinai Peninsula and the southern half of the Levant, possibly up to Jerusalem (me and Fin can probably work out who owns what in that area, with a fair bit of no-man's-land in-between); the northern bits of Libya up to Benghazi; and the western coast of Saudi Arabia down to Mecca.

I would also like Sudan as a barely controlled colonial territory where my inept military formations go to practice their trade on even more inept natives.

I'll split it with you. Since the island extends from about 46N to 54N, we could split it at 50N and I take the northern portion, and you the southern portion.

From what I understand that decision has already been made.

Since you went with the Pakistan/India motif in V2, you guys should do the full Pakistan/India in V3.

If that doesn't work out, India and Pakistan -- WITH SOME CHANGES to the topography so it's not all "lol only one place to go" for major army movements does.

I was hoping to get the entire island of Borneo to myself, actually.

Along with Java, Sumatra, Sulawesi, and the Malaysian part of the Malay Peninsula.



Damn, that's a huge byzantine empire.

Then one of de Harclay's pikemen, concealed beneath the bridge, thrust upwards between the planks and skewered the Earl of Hereford through the anus, twisting the head of the iron pike into his intestines. His dying screams turned the advance into a panic."'
