    Post 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?

    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.
