View Full Version : Tactical Map

Okay, another thought.

What are the main few uses of maps... at least in most people's minds?

1. How to get from A to B in my car.
2. X marks the post for Paiiiirrrate Treeaaazzzzuuure
3. Wars

Time maybe to suggest that we have our various luminaries make Tactical Maps. These could be:

Spanish Armada-type naval maps
Ancient Roman "here be the Gauls" maps
20th Century "And the French retreated to here..."
Apocalyptic World Maps (aka Warhammer 40k, etc)
Starmaps aka "Romulans off the starboard bow!"
Something else that hasn't entered into my brain yet...

What do you collective diagrammatical trouble-makers think of this?

Tactical maps .. great! I already see some generals standing around the map moving little cannons and soldiers around :D

Saw the Romulan thing and it made me think of an old song with a chorus of "There's Klingons off the starboard bow". My vote would have been yes otherwise. We did something like this last December (I think), but with a new crop of recruits, members, maybe we could do another one.

Ascencion> It was supposed to make you think of that song... I just didn't want to quote it.
