     17 * It is usually a reasonably good defensive map.
     18 * This map also makes for an excellent watermap for such as coastal, continental, and islands type maps.

     20== Typical Temperate type variations: ==
     21 * Fortress Eire & Albion (fortresses are sited atop mounds, access is normally open)
     22 * Fortress Cantabrian Highlands (fortresses are sited atop hilltop heights, access may be reduced somewhat by adjacent forest on slopes)

     151 * Civ Territories divided by water features as appropriate.
     152
     153=== 3.2.6. Rhine Marshlands ===
     154 * The Netherlands.

     157 * Open ocean lies to the west.
     158 * There are few beaches with adjacent land where ports can be developed.
     159 * Is a hard map to defend on so strategy must be aggressive.
