Hi Guys,

Do you have a scenario write-up for this?

BTW, I long ago developed beginnings of battalia for most of the Holy Country based on old notes of Greg's. Never typed them in, though, and certainly never finished them.

Keith, needless to say I'd like to see these. :)

Keep in mind that this map is grotesquely inaccurate in many respects. It is not a properly scaled projection, in the first place (when put together, it is a football, not a globe), the force lines are childishly conceived (they are drawn straight across the paper, not marked as they should be on a globe projection), and of course we now know what more of those places are.

Plus, Greg is adamant in not wanting to determine a scale for the Red Moon -- it is an Otherworld, so has no true scale that can be related to the Inner World, and if he says how big it is, some materialist will use math to determine its exact height, something Greg does not want done. :)
