I've been thinking about creating specific area names for a while now and put together the area names below, themed by home player region. I will be adding these to the map / board.
My original inspiration for the MM map was for the Fire Home Region being like Iceland, the Ice Home Region being like Norway, the Dark Home Region being a bit of Scotland, with a dash of Scandinavia and the Light Home Region being a bit more of Scotland, all stirred around by the Maelstrom.
Obviously, this means that Iceland = Fire and Norway = Ice, but these sources aren't made clear in the Magic Maelstrom game and so I just went with it.
The reason for creating the area names is to provide something extra to add to the game theme and also to give the possibility of creating a set of area cards for trying out an express version of the game or allowing their use in creating custom scenarios. Be interesting to see if this works.
The following list shows the names I have chosen for the Home Regions and their associated sea areas.
Anything (unintentionally) strange or wrong seeming - let me know. PDF available to look at too.
First Feedback - there are two Svalbards. Oops, one of these (in the Ice Region) should be Lofoten instead.
