Solid map, Nic. While less than perfectly balanced, the capitals distribution can be attributed to the books.
Nevertheless, Nic has once again found a way to make a map unique and challenging. The negative bonuses of the Hadrac Desert are enough outweighed by their superbonus to make them a tempting, if very risky, target. Similarly, the use of oases isolated by desert as part of a positive bonus makes for some interesting decisionmaking.
My only suggestions for improvement would be (1) make the bridges over rivers a bit easier to see (it took me a minute to realize Utgard was not connected to Gil'ead), and (2) take a few territories out of the Eastern Beor Mountains and move them to the Central region.

Great Map. The -negative point central desert is a real game changer and an excellent addition.

Five. Hole. Stars. The Inheritance Cycle is one of my favorite series ever, and I knew there were a couple lame Alagaësia maps, but had no idea you'd made one! It's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen, I just want to cry. Thank you for this map.
