This also happens in the PC version at times. Event music and season music (but not Sacred Time) will overlap.

I think you mean "tribe," not "clan." Both my clan and my tribe have discontinuous territory. My tribe includes a clan separated from us by unsettled territory, and several of the other tribes have one clan here, another there. My clan is discontinuous as a result of taking over 2 other clans' tulas and dividing mine up with 4 other clans. I'm in 4 pieces, but I'm not complaining as it makes me adjacent to a whole bunch of clans and doesn't seem to make me any more vulnerable to raids.

I don't think this is correct. I've played on both the PC and the Mac and never have had switching any blessings cost me an action.

There's a link from the A# web page to a tips page which explains how to calculate your maximum trade routes. It would be nice if your Issaries ringleader would shut up about new trade routes when you've maxed out, tho'.
