In response to a special request, I'll post some impressions of the campaign map.
Remember though that the campaign game is not finished and will take another about 2 month to finish as of 2008/07/28.

The White Palace of Puri (Krishnapur):

When you do get around to finishing the campaign map, can you change that reference to "Mongol hordes" on the Golden Wall to "Karazai hordes"?

That thing has been bothering me since I first downloaded BLTW. ~;)

Sure thing. No more "Japanese", "Chinese" or "Mongol" or "Indian" stuff for me either.

Overall I think the map is pretty good.
But is there a Japan Island? Or is the Penisula?
I heard the Monk islands were the Phillipines(sp?), so I know that cant be Japan.

Dear Masonop,
that's a funny peculiarity indeed. Even for the Japanese, the northern part of present-day Japan (Hok-kai-dou) was largely a terra incognita until the 17th century, and to a certain degree even beyond. This is reflected by the map used in Blue Lotus being *very* inaccurate at this point. In fact, it shows Northern Japan as connected to the continent as a peninsula -which it is definitel not. Also, in reality Japan is made up of four distict main islands. In Blue Lotus, it's just one. Navigation without compass and sextants simply did not allow people to be overly exact. In fact, if you look at 14th century European maps, you'll most likely puke from laughter. They always have the Garden of Eden painted right next to the country of one-legged dwarves. ^.^/

Gotta check the various discussions, man. The campaign is under development right now. Custom battles work fine though. Also only the Japanese factions have their stats completed. Other units may have balanced stats, or may have the old stats from the first beta or the unit they were converted from.
