      Unrealistic trash, do you honestly expect me to believe a peninsula just so happens to be shaped as a boot?
      And a giant wasteland to the east? How creative!

      Also this, it's an absolute mess clearly only made to pretend the setting is more complicated than it is.

    Show more of the Middle East, specifically the Arabian peninsula and Eastern Arabia, and more of North Africa. Otherwise this is generic worthless trash.

      Why? There's almost nothing but deserts and rocky mountains in those areas; it would add nothing substantial to the map.

      More lands but less densely populated compared to others. Iirc bohemia didn't lag that far behind in population size by having around 2 million people compared to Lithuania's 2.5 million.

        last good Europe, as in less than 10 years cannons would become widespread and comfy "kingdoms" would gradually die out until 400 or so years later the Holy Roman Empire gets cannibalized

      It's either because they don't want to upset whole countries by making them the bad guys (unless russia) or they don't want autists going "Well ackshually" when they want to write about spanish knights in mazovia.

        The middle ages were organized by Fiefs. So the antagonist wouldnt be a nation but a person and his personal allies.
        Thats another thing about fantashitters: projecting modern concepts on a supposedly medieval world.

          Or how about they create their fantasy setting instead?
          That's the point, it's not worth the effort unless you are a serious history nerd

    Samogitia borders are wrong, also it was already reintegrated into Lithuania proper by that time. Also you should seperate Lithuania proper and rus lands, because they had different legal system

    Y'know with how many pissant little kingdoms in the middle there, why doesn't anybody just bulldoze a frickload of them. Like those angry red island frickers could basically invade with impunity and just start rolling them up. Completely unrealistic. The only reason would be to make a default "Borderlands" for people's dnd campaigns to take place and that's the only justification you could have for them not having been eaten by the greater powers around them.

      >why doesn't anybody just bulldoze a frickload of them
      before actual workable cannons became a thing (~1450) it was easier to defend than to attack... if there stood a castle or fortified city in your way, you had to starve them out... which was kind of hard considering they probably had provisions until next spring, and you were surrounded by other castles (as a ton of "pissant little kingdoms" = a shitload of castles) who eyed your weapons, armor, and horses with glee
      not to mention that every peasant had to know how to fight and provide at least a bow & arrow if poor (or equipment for a knight if wealthy)
      but yeah let's suppose you are smart and decide you won't take the castle, but go around it... what the frick are you doing mate? just walking around with your army till they die of hunger? steal the only thimble & silver mirror in the village? eat five pigs?

    Too many factions. The readers are not going to be able of keeping track of all of them.

    Too many peninsulas; the map is not believable at all. What are you going to call this world, Peninsulaland?
