birmail & map
I looked at the tool but I'm not sure to understand what's the use of the map ?
Ok it displayes roads, castle, rivers, provinces and so on but is that usefull for DM only or for players as well ?
I mean some of those data are not public (eg ley lines) so I'm wondring if this is just a gadget for DM or is really usefull.Un pour le Seigneur des Ténèbres sur son sombre trône
Dans le Pays de Mordor où s'étendent les Ombres.
Un Anneau pour les gouverner tous, Un Anneau pour les trouver,
Un Anneau pour les amener tous et dans les ténèbres les lier
Au Pays de Mordor où s'étendent les Ombres.

Well actually you can publish all of the information on that map to HTML (Can't remember what menu option it was)
- it shows warded provinces, roads, colors based on province ownership
So when running a game you can re-publish your html after each turn and make the map available by html (especially usefull if you have access to a website you can publish to...)
Here is an example from the last Rjurik Winds PBEM I ran:
=> the map s straight out of Birmail...
Birmail even makes the map clickable; and links you to the appropriate realm so that people/players can see the information
Again; all you need to do after you resolve the turn is to run the export to HTML

Alot of it has to do with DM options and leaving the choice up to them what they want to use or not.One law, One court, One allied people, One coin, and one tax, is what I shall bring to Cerilia.
