The board is just as in regular Diplomacy, except that Switzerland is passable.
Switzerland does not contain a Supply Center.
There are six Great Powers, as follows (A & F designate an Army & Fleet in the corresponding Supply Center province at the start of the game):
|Kingdom of the Goths|
|Western Roman Empire|
St. Petersburg (A)
Suggested one-letter abbreviations & colors [technically irrelevant to the game, of course]: B, C, G, S, T, W and orange, light blue, red, pink, yellow, green both in the order given above.
Note: I would have been tempted to call “Northland”, the Swedish Empire (as the Swedes did conquer most of this area under Charles XII). – Stephen Agar
