1. Thanks for naming a bonus after me :)

2. There's an unnamed territory in the Iron Coast bonus.

3. I like your temples idea, it seems more interesting to me than just having the map wrap around and every side territory connection to the opposite one.

4. You made the New Earth bonus, which is composed of sub-bonuses. I think, to better balance the map, you should lower both the super- and the sub-bonuses a bit in army value, so it doesn't add up to be worth two times the average army-to-territory ratio. You could make New Africa be worth 4 armies, New America 6, New Eurasia 4, the United Provinces 3 and 4 for the super-bonus. In that way it is worth 21 for 29 territories, instead of 27 for 29, and thus following your normal ratio better.

5. For distribution modes, the only thing that pops in my head is a northeast-northwest-southwest-southeast distribution, with every region holding one temple.
Here are the regions with their borders colored, those are not the territories I suggest to be available for distribution:

6. I wonder why a part of Heqarez and Heqazzaren bonus is sticking out to the south a lot more than any territories neighboring it, I don't think it looks good, but if you have a good reason for this let me know.

7. I'm in for testing! I have tested and made over 10 maps, my average multi-day speed is slightly above 4 hours, and I like the map!

Is there any significance to how you matched the elements to the temples? Because if it's mostly random I'd suggest putting "opposite" elements (*fire* vs. *water* and *earth* vs. *wind*) in opposite corners, so they are the ones not connecting.
Currently, for instance, *earth* connects to *fire* and *wind* but not to *water*, which seems strange.

8. Missing connection: Dferastu State (Naskaq Nation) - Salkan Province (New Eurasia)

9. Gaps between territory borders, and overlapping inter-bonus borders. Not as bad as in Skunk's maps, but still.

10. A few connection lines, like Qearan Peninsula - Ballistinlis Region in Heqazzaran are missing. Also: around the bay in Iron Coast, Tryhenn, Requn, the sea to the right of Rendervon Kingdom, and around Nemerian Island.

11. Nozits Peninsula is not a peninsula but an island.

Huh? In the last post I clearly typed 8. 9. 10. 11. but the forum thinks I wrote 1. 2. 3. 4.

Nothing you can do about that, see [the specs](http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax#list):
|> Markdown supports ordered (numbered) and unordered (bulleted) lists.
|> (..)
|> Ordered lists use numbers followed by periods:
|> 1. Bird
|> 2. McHale
|> 3. Parish
|>
|> **It’s important to note that the actual numbers you use to mark the list have no effect on the HTML output Markdown produces**. The HTML Markdown produces from the above list is:
|> <ol>
|> <li>Bird</li>
|> <li>McHale</li>
|> <li>Parish</li>
|> </ol>
|>
|> If you instead wrote the list in Markdown like this:
|> 1. Bird
|> 1. McHale
|> 1. Parish
|> (..)
|> you’d get the exact same HTML output. The point is, if you want to, you can use ordinal numbers in your ordered Markdown lists, so that the numbers in your source match the numbers in your published HTML. But if you want to be lazy, you don’t have to.
|>
|> If you do use lazy list numbering, however, you should still start the list with the number 1. **At some point in the future, Markdown may support starting ordered lists at an arbitrary number.**

If you want to check your text will format as intended you can always use the preview button of course.

@Iron:
Just curious, is this based on something, or entirely your own imagination?
