Modified map includes clarifications discussed in the first topic and British units stand out more, and British unit names are easier to read.

And did you miss one canal in the rules overview? There appears to be a canal that runs through astrakhan and rostov from the black sea to the caspian sea? correct? :?

Diplomatic Cable from the Republic of Poland:

The Republic of Poland is deeply distressed by the disintegration of NATO. We call on former allies to reaffirm our ties, and have hope that Europe will see Peace and prosperity through our leadership.

Given the chaos is beginning to develop, our first goal will be to reestablish the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, by sailing a diplomatic mission to Lithuania.

We look forward to receiving diplomatic cables from all nations to establish ties.

I don't want to make a big fuss or anything but the countries were picked among preferences first-come first-serve? ._.

Preferences were based on were you ranked your country. People who had a country ranked 1 got first shot at random for the country. If you didn't get your number one country, then it went to the other two. No one actually picked Germany for any of the three preferences, so, unfortunately, someone was going to have to play a country they didn't want. It just randomly turned out to be you.(Your three preferenced countries were very popular) I tried to make sure everyone got one of the other two countries they picked if they didn't get their first, but I couldn't do anything about Germany since no one picked it.

Yes, there is a canal there. I copy and pasted from the variant bank, actually. I overlooked that omission. And just to make sure another thing is clear, a fleet moves onto the province in which the canal lies before moving through to the sea. Ex. F EME -> Cairo -> Red. This would take place over two seasons. One for the first move into Cairo and the other season for the second move into the Red sea.
