    OK here's a question... does it have to be a regional/country/overland map? Can it be a city that is say...divided along the lines of noble families and/or different guilds (merchants, thieves, etc.) with each guild having its own sigil/coat of arms/badge.

    Sounds like it's legal to me.

    Odd that here's a second challenge in a row that my Wheel of Time map would have been good for.

The Shogunate dominated areas vs. areas of opposition to the Shogun. Instead of flags or crests I would use those Japanese "crests" or family symbols.
    Sounds like a very interesting map

    This could be interesting. Now if I can squeeze my Profantasy commission around this challenge!

    Stupid question here :

    Is the color reference enough for the political side of the map or do I have to add more distinctive elements ?

    Well...... the challenge rules say:

    A focus of this map MUST be political identifiers.... Flags, crests, banners or coats of arms must appear prominently on the work.
    So without these types of "political identifiers" you may get less votes in the end, as they are to be a "focus of the map".
