It's a great idea to change all names to latin, I'll probably do it later.
As Moros said, I used City names for territory names. 1. This way I find it more intuitive; 2. There is no double naming of territory and territory-bonus; 3. I could keep it consistent with all other names on the map; 4. I could join together 2-3 different shires, and just choose one city name, instead of combining a few shire names.
This is a modern day map with medieval bonuses, (because of balance), (and because medieval regions are cool). I used a NUTS3 region map, and joined some regions together for it to look like it looks now.
I made medieval bonuses, because I wanted to have present day borders in the diplomacy scenario, but to have
almost no starting country with a whole super-bonus.
And I like your map, I've seen it before. I wanted my map to have France, Germany, UK, Scandinavia only. I made the border in the east on the Odra river. Actually there's some back-story on why it is that way, but it's unrelated to warlight :D
This way I could have a reasonable amount of states in the diplomacy scenario (17), states with the borders I wanted. I believe, that the upper limit was 24, when I started creating this map.
And yes, I'll probably do a scenario with alternative bunus-values, but for now I have no idea, how it should look like.
