Just what the title says - a map of the setting. Just follow the link to my Skydrive to download the file (8.6 MB). Map of Zaidan
Explanations Castles The castle icons represent the capitals of the various realms. The number of towers in each icon denote the level of the capital: I (minor Lord), II (major Lord), or III (Paramount Lord) rather than the level of the castle. That information is available in the Holdings and Assets sheet.
Torii Gates The torii icons represent the headquarters of the shrine networks (known as Grand Shrines).
Totally irrelevant über geeky stuff Most of the names are actual Japanese place names, with the exception of the regions, seas, bays, and some of the islands. - In the names of the regions, the suffix "-do" is usually translated as "circuit" or "route", but held the general meaning of a region and that is the sense in which I am using it. The names of the five regions translate as follows: Chuo-do=Central Region, Hokuto-do=Northeastern Region, Hokusei-do=Northwestern Region, Nanto-do=Southeastern Region, and Nansei-do=Southwestern Region. - The names of the seas surrounding Zaidan translate as follows: Hokkai=Northern Sea, Tokai=Eastern Sea, Nankai=Southern Sea, Nishikai=Western Sea, and Engokai=Sheltered Sea. - The word "Wan" translates as bay or gulf. - The suffixes "kawa" and "gawa" both mean river - The suffixes "jima" and "shima" both mean island and the word "retto" means archipelago.

Takahashi Rin - Tkh (Maggie): Oh that should be cool Jeroen, we'll have to make it a priority to get you holdings (temple right?) as soon as possible. Maybe once you have one established on the mainland you should make a bunch of 0 levels in provinces before we invade them so you can

Abe Taiyou -Abe (Jeroen): Well, I'll be quite honest, with all the wars going on I only still have one realm spell right now. No time for research though it is planned for next turn. (I'm Kazuko mainly, only minor Bosan.)

Abe Taiyou -Abe (Jeroen): Though considering this is rather expansive undertaking I should surely be able to invest more into the magic. (I can cast Bless Army now but considering my low caster level..)

Abe Taiyou -Abe (Jeroen): Some of the possible spells might be useful however and it's always an extra edge. If I would get involved direcetly I could invest in Clap of Heavenly Thunder. Nothing quite says moral superiority like slap from the Kami.

Abe Taiyou -Abe (Jeroen): Small update of my Clan history. I'll keep making and adding small rumours as we go
