Ah! I thought the sheep was some sort of Settlers of Catan reference. I already had woods and mountains, so it needed sheep, wheat and bricks. Who wants to trade?
I can't help but to think of the Far East/technology mashup as being distinctly "Firefly." Was that on purpose, or just coincidental awesome? Also, I'm loving the names, but they seem a little too Scottish (?) for the Asian look and feel of the map. That could just stem from the fact that they are descendants of a spacefaring race, but it does strike me as a little odd. Also, I'm loving the textures and fonts used. What is the name of the font?
Pretty amazing, and thanks for the story. I can't help thinking that you could make a board game out of this when you're done!
