I haven't bothered to label the territories for a first sketch, but I hope it is understandable enough.
- Byzantinum (yellow) - A Athens, F Constantinople, A Smyrna
- Crusader States (pink) - F England, A Prussia, F Malta, A Outremer
- Hungary (brown) - F Croatia, A Budapest, F Siebenbürgen
- Mameluk Sultanate (green) - F Egypt EC, A Bedouins, A Moors
- Seljuk Sultanate (blue) - A Mecca (note: only partially on map)
The dark grey areas aren't defined yet.
In the north east beyond Novgorod and Kievan Rus, there are going to be a couple more of neutral inland SCs along with the Golden Horde home SC.
In the south-east, another couple of inland Middle East SCs, the rest of the Seljuk Sultanate, and of course the Il-Khanate and the Ghore Sultanate.
The Atlantic and the Red Sea are connected south of South Africa. South Africa is a neutral water-way allowing access to Atlantic and Red Sea by fleets, and to the Mameluk home SCs by armies.
Some notes that might not be immediately apparent:
- Hungary and Byzantinum face a very similar situation about the Black Sea as Turkey and Russia in Calhamer. They could get along with Byzantinum taking the Black Sea and the Crimea SC, while Hungary creeps along the Coast to the Kievan Rus SC, but that will take trust, and the deal could fall apart any autumn turn thanks to the Chaos rules (which permit to build in any SC, not just in the 3-4 home SCs).
- Hungary has a save grab with Venice, while the Crusaders have a save grab with Rome. As in the first year both can be taken only by fleet and they don't share a coast, this is initially drama-free, but could lead to conflict later as armies can be built.
- Jerusalem may be the most contested SC in the early game, being reachable in Spring by all of the Mameluks, Seljuks and Crusaders. The Crusaders can take it, but will forsake Antioch to Byzantinum in doing so. The Mameluks can take it, but will then forsake the strategically important Red Sea and South Africa early on. (The Seljuks should face a similar dilemma that I will need to think about more as I move to the Middle Eastern theatre.)
- Crusaders start out thinly spread, but have a wide selection of openings in the early game. With F (Eng) - ATL and A (Pru) - Sax, in Autumn the Northern army could be convoied anywhere from Normandy to South Africa to put pressure on the Mameluks for the price of forsaking the Rus SCs. F (Mal) - Eastern Mediterranean could be a strong push into the Middle East, or a pretext for a convoi into deserted Byzantine SCs. Or they could play it safe by taking Rome with F Mal and putting F Eng into the Atlantic while their two isolated armies surf on the curtails of an ally.
