Description

Many centuries in the future, humanity is forced to begin again. The Church of God Awaiting, based in Zion, has been created to hinder technological advancement in the hope of keeping mankind hidden from the genocidal Gbaba. Confined to a world dominated by the sea, nations that control the waves can command a lion share of Safehold's resources. Take to the oceans and dominate your enemies!

Thanks for pointing out any errors and broken connections. I have discovered a couple more missing links, one link that shouldn't be there and that I inadvertently used a territory name twice. All of these issues will be fixed in the next version. In the meantime, please keep me advised as to any additional problems.

For those of you familiar with the world of Safehold, you'll no doubt note that I took some liberties with the place names. In some cases I invented place names that I felt were consistent with the spirit of the nation or area in which they are located. In others, I used territory names that are close to accurate but probably a bit off geographically speaking. If you come across any such inaccuracies you have a hard time swallowing, please let me know.

Thanks!

The biggest issue is the "tiny island sprawl" it's next to impossible to establish any sort of chokepoints....perhaps they're should be two maps, one with all those tiny islands, and one without, otherwise, a fantastic map, I love it.
Response by map creator Nathan on 4/24/2014
Thanks, Veith. I intentionally designed the map without chokepoints to reflect the crucial importance of controlling the seas as found in the Safehold series of books. Nevertheless, you might try treating the water territories as chokepoints and see if that changes the gameplay for you. For example, I have found it profitable to surround the island of Tarot and then conquer it to obtain its superbonus.

Love this map.

A great example of naval prowess and true difficulty of creating choke points. So many maps either ignore proper sea lanes or only add a couple meager ones for the sake of having them. Once you're in the ocean, you go where you like. You can't just setup defenses at some spot X and thus block all water travel from spot Y (which is what typically happens, spot X has a sea lane directly to spot Y and only Y, no territory on the water, just a straight trip to land).

FANTASTIC MAP. The world wrap factor adds to the all encompassing can't-hide-via-choke-points nature of the map.

I'm not saying all maps should be like this, just that this type of map absolutely needs to exist, and this one does it perfectly.
