I hope that we will soon see the map as a whole with each of these smaller maps all combined.

Hoot Mon!

Does the MacLaurel have a MacHardy for an advisor that he can blame for getting themselves "into another fine mess"? If so, then does the Mess celebrate with an extra dollop of oatmeal gruel?

Bonnie Scotland Forever!

Ah yes, the Clan McHardy of Hollywood House, at the foot of Glen Close in the shadow of Ben Affleck. A respectable clan of antique memory!

Bonnie Scotland, indeed (one of my favorite Laurel and Hardy movies!).

I'm not sure anyone knows how or even if all of these fit together. I deliberately avoided that while drawing the maps. They could probably fit together in any number of ways (especially if you allow the odd gap). It's part of the fierce independence of each state (and maybe a bit of insularity...).

Okay, I can live with that.

My favorite quote of Emerson is . . . "consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds".

Jeff, there's also the fact that by keeping things vague I can have armies go wherever I want and not worry about map moves and can they get there from here (of course, map moves aren't necessarily a bad thing - they can make for fun and realistic campaigns and I like looking at maps).
