Homelands will be indicated on the map so you will know who your neighbors are and where they are located. Everyone's homeland region will be a 4 GV Cultivated region with 20 PWB in it.
You will have 2000 Build Points to allocate in the categories shown below. Any extras will not be saved. This is a one turn use it or lose it.
Please send in a brief description of your nation in order for me to get a feel for where you plan to take your nation over time. I want to just get to know what your hopes and dreams are sothat I can better interpret your orders and intentions. Include in this the name of the nation and the name of you king.
You may purchase regions up to 2 regions/SZ from your homeland. This means if you can get to the region by going through 2 or less regions or sea zones to get there, it may be purchased. For example. If you have a coastal homeland you may purchase any region that touches that homeland and any region that touches those regions. You amy also purchase any region that borders the sea zone your homeland borders on. If your homeland borders on 2 sea zones then you can purchase any region that borders BOTH sea zones!
In the event that 2 nations try to purchase the same region, the nation who is closer to the region to be purchased gets the region. If they are both the same distance away, then the nation that spends the most build points on the region will get the region. If they both spend the same amount and it is the same distance, then a roll of the dice determines who gets the region. There are no refunds of build points if you do not get a region because of this.
Since there is no terain, GV, or RV associated with regions yet, you may set those values by the amount of points you chose to spend on those regions. The build charts are shown below. All regions you purchase will be of your national religion. All regions on the map have the same language.
All regions in Tarsha will have a chance of having some PWB in them. The ones built this turn are no exception.
