Isengard can get 2. Isengard moves to Endewaith, Gap of Rohan moves to Fords of Isen.


Is it build anywhere? What are victory conditions?

Would build anywhere be better? I am asking for suggestions so what do you think? 16 Sc's = Victory!

There are only 2 home SCs each, so maybe. But then again, there aren't many SCs.

everybody will grow peacefully for a year or two and pink will get caught between all four powers. bye bye

Welcome to playing Austria?

I guess what I'm saying is, it may take more effort/a different kind of effort, but I don't think it should be impossible.

The river is a border in all cases EXCEPT:

1. Firien Wood DOES NOT BORDER Eastemnet
2. Snowbourne does not border Akiburg, Aldburg, Mouths of Entwash, and Edoras

Here are some clarifications on borderings:

1. Wold borders Limlight
2, Entwood borders derndingle
3. N.Gondor Borders Dunharrow and Aldburg
4. Mouths of Entwash borders Akiburg
5. Firien Wood DOES NOT BORDER Eastemnet
6. Flatlands borders both Snowbourne and Eastfold
