Couldn't resist a little mapmaking, so I have found myself back at it again. I also enjoy making historic maps, so here it is so far.

Long way to go but work is in progress. It should be very similar to Medieval England, but with Ireland/Scotland and France.

Will you be including bonuses based on specific kingdom sizes from different times during the war? Looking forward to seeing how this goes.

@MrTroll - if there is room to include those bonuses I will at the end, but mainly just going to base bonuses on 'de jure' duchies/counties/kingdoms. No real time period. Just 14th-15th century, I like making it very customisable.

I have a question of my own, I am naming French castles in French but not a lot, if none, of the other territories in French. Should I make all territories spelt in their own language or all English? I guess its better to do it in French.

Looks great so far, although Provence wasn't part of France until 1481, several decades after the war ended.

I forgot to ask this before, but will you be including other areas not under either countries control such as Burgundy?

Also feel free to let me know if theres anything you need to research concerning names/territories since I am a huge history buff and can help check stuff like that

I guess so because I am including Ireland and Scotland, some lands that weren't controlled by England. So depending on how France looks like after I've finished, I may add Burgundy/Provence etc. Especially as Burgundy was involved in the conflict. But I have to watch territory size, I don't want it too big.

Feel free to point out inaccuracies, I'm studying for a history degree so I'm also a huge history buff lol, but its easy to get things wrong considering the size. Plus the fact my main source is wiki :D

What year is it based on, specifically? I have detailed maps of every year of Western Europe during this time. Here's one for 1337:



There's also this map, which you can use to gauge the Crown Lands:


(It's based on 1477 FYI, but should still be useful)

I have no specific start date, its pretty much a map on the whole period. I would say I was aiming initially for the middle, so 1390-1400 I guess.

I think the way I have split France roughly represents the counties/duchies most prominent during the period. Then players can pick a date and either put the land as part of England or France.

This image shows the contemporary border between the Dutch Republic and the Spanish netherlands. A border which has been established at the end of the Dutch war of independence due to failed attempts of the Dutch to incorporate Flanders into the union. Resulting in the Netherlands receiving a small parts of Flanders only, dubbed 'Staats-Vlaanderen' . This border is noticeably historical inaccurate considering these events took place several centuries later after the events of the Hundred Years' war took place.

Instead, the correct border should show it like this with in red the county of Flanders and the bold line representing the divide between the Kingdom of France and the Holy Roman Empire. :

The upper northern part next to the Westerschelde is called 'Land van de Vier Ambachten' or 'Vier Ambachten' in short. And it's not to be confused with 'Staats-Vlaanderen'.

Vier Ambachten was an administrative and juridical entity within Flanders which enjoyed great autonomy and had the statute of 'Keure' to the Holy Roman emperor. I'd highly reccommend to make this a territory in its own right and add the remainder part of Flanders subjected to the Holy Roman Emperor along with it. Please Apollo. Flanders was the wealthiest duchy in the french kingdom. This is a good excuse to add extra land

Ok for sure, will add further down the line.

Things have slowed down cause I'm busier, but slowly progressing still.
