Taking a bit more of a RISK

I managed to start work today on developing my imagi-world map. I began by making a copy of the map I created from the original map board that comes with the game RISK (I did this just in case I made a serious mistake).

So far I have sorted out some of the imagi-nations in Europe. I have sited Laurania and Maldacia (indicated on the map by the numbers 1 and 2 respectively) in the Balkans and defined the national boundaries of:
  • Etruscia (Italy)
  • Gallia (France)
  • Iberia (Spain and Portugal)
  • The United Kingdoms of Britannia (Anglia, Scotia, and Eira)
  • Epirica (Greece; indicated on the map by the number 3)

With a bit of luck I should be able to add some more detail over the next few days, but I am not rushing this task as I want to get things right.


  1. Hi Bob,

    Looks very promising and I think you are going to have a lot of fun redrawing national boundaries! Will Forbodia be slotted into the Balkans?

    All the best,


  2. David Crook,

    It is great fun drawing things like maps, especially as it is something that you can take time over and savour as you do it.

    Forbodia may well be appearing in the Balkans ... along with one of two other fictional countries. This is still a 'work in progress' and there may be minor changes to the map as it develops.

    All the best,
