Solid map, Nic. While less than perfectly balanced, the capitals distribution can be attributed to the books.
Nevertheless, Nic has once again found a way to make a map unique and challenging. The negative bonuses of the Hadrac Desert are enough outweighed by their superbonus to make them a tempting, if very risky, target. Similarly, the use of oases isolated by desert as part of a positive bonus makes for some interesting decisionmaking.
My only suggestions for improvement would be (1) make the bridges over rivers a bit easier to see (it took me a minute to realize Utgard was not connected to Gil'ead), and (2) take a few territories out of the Eastern Beor Mountains and move them to the Central region.

Great Map. The -negative point central desert is a real game changer and an excellent addition.

Love the detail that went into the map and how you want to avoid the desert at first but kind of need to own it in order to quickly spread across the map.

Five. Hole. Stars. The Inheritance Cycle is one of my favorite series ever, and I knew there were a couple lame Alagaësia maps, but had no idea you'd made one! It's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen, I just want to cry. Thank you for this map.
