Edwardian (2nd Edition)

This is the place for games which are currently being created and developed, and where the designer is listening to feedback from other players. The game is not ready to play, and the designers are not looking for sign-ups - indeed, they may have no intention of GMing the game themselves when it is finished. But your input is welcome!

Alright, that makes sense. I chose German Bohemia simply because it was the historical name of that province in the short-lived Republic of German-Austria in 1918--the closest example of a definitive name and boundary for that region on an administrative level that regarded that area as a unified entity. However, I did change it to Sudetenland for the sake of easy recognition and to avoid confusion.

I have got another question: why did you choose Reval rather than Riga as the Russian supply center, the latter being a much larger town in 1901? According to Wikipedia, Reval had 58,800 citizens in 1897 while Riga had almost 300,000 in the same year.

That's just me nitpicking though. Reval looks fine, it was a pleasant surprise seeing it on a Diplomacy map!

I thought about making Riga the supply center, but I chose Reval because it was of great strategic value as a forward naval base to guard the passage to the Gulf of Finland and ultimately to the fortress of Kronstadt and St. Petesburg. I suppose the best analog might be why Calhamer chose Brest over, say, Nantes in the space roughly representing Brittany. I have no qualms about changing it to Riga if this is a sticking point for others as well, but that's the reason why I chose Reval.

Your reasoning is good enough for me, I didn't know about Reval's strategic relevance at all.

A little thing: Tyrolia and the Tyrrhenian Sea have the same abbreviation (TYR). May I suggest "TYN" for Tyrrhenian Sea, the abbreviation Avalon Hill uses for Classic?

It's funny you mention this because I actually noticed it myself the other day, but forgot to upload a corrected map. Amendment has been made now.
