Unexplored Starting Regions

Postby Alexai Adrente » Wed Sep 10, 2008 12:33 pm

A starting character (barring spending bonus points) has 7 explored regions and 3 unexplored regions in his province. Can those 3 unexplored regions count as regions of other Ven? I.e. I could go conqueror them and have them already improved instead of having to explore 3 lands? Or do I have to explore and civilize all 10 regions in my province first before starting to play Conquistador?

I don't see why not. I think the unexplored tag is just to denote that you don't have control of 3 regions yet. At least that's how I'm playing it, until told differently.

You can go out and conquer other Regions if you like. The system is abstract, so I really don't care where you got them. :)

Seems like a difficult way to expand your province but when has that ever stopped the Ven from trying. I looked through the rules and I didn't see anything that explicitly says you can't.

Yep, it's completely an either/or gig. All depends on which road you want to take.

Develop wild regions - Orks to rassle, stuff to build, yay.

Conquer others' regions - If you can keep 'em, they clearly didn't belong to the other ven in the first place, no? Plus, stuff already built and in place, always a bonus.
