Well I am back ! I had a super week in Yorkshire with the family - looked for fossils (and found some ) upon the beach, saw an interesting exhibition of local Roman archaeaology in Malton, bought superb kippers in Whitby and took a copy of Battlegames to further research my campaign map!
A lot seems to be happening in EvE and the Jacobites have done so well! I have posted this picture to give an idea of the lakes and hills on the Skogsmork Tradgardland border - where my mini campaign will be set. I am starting the mapping process which will be at the scale of roughly 2.5 inches to the mile - this will give enough detail to work in well with my skirmish rule idea of small scale combat and maneuver.
The largest lake in the area has the border running through it and is patrolled from both sides by boatmen. They will use boats equipped as follows:
10 metre boat with 16 oars equipped with 2x 3pdr guns , with sail also.
24 metre boat with thirty oars equpiied with 6 x 3pdr , with sails also.
I currently mapping the largest lake in the area and need your help- I am looking for information about German place name endings with topographical meanings to add some flavour to the map - can you help? Well I had better get back to the mapping and gardening while the sun shines...
