i'm working on a combined naval/ground game. it's based on late 19th century tech and designs, not super strict (i plan on including manned kite balloons/blimps as a unit)

Going to drop some thought in here tomorrow. Been looking at things but not ready to comment yet. Just didn't want you thinking no one was paying attention 😀

The vermillion isles was done with a free account.
I got curious what you could do with premium so paid for a premium account for a year and did the world map.

So far I am working on rules for Infantry, Blimps/Balloons, Cavalry, Wagons, and Ships ranging from small torpedo/gunboats up to a scout cruiser/avisio style ship.

doesn't help, not a flying ships game.

realistic, but not historical and definitely not steam or diesel punk is what i'm going for.
