Twoflower said:Yes, you are of course right It just looked sorta bad to have all of Germany as either forests or marshes, but that's probably how it should be.
...while I actually think all that green/turquoise looks pretty good! I've always assosiated Germany with forests, so it looks and feels very "right".
As for the marshes in North Germany, this of course depends on your definition of "marsh", "plains" and "forest". The North German coast doesn't have particularly many forests, it certainly is not an "open land" ideal for invasions like e.g. the Hungarian Puszta (look e.g. at how long the Frisian princes or the Republic of Dithmarschen were able to defend themselves despite being weak and tiny against far superior invaders).
Very true, of course. I was mostly thinking if every province should be made into marsh, though it might be or the best (on a related note, which terrain have we now decided upon for Frisia? Plains, forest or marsh?).
