The implementation of battle proceeds apace, and we have more-or-less completed the Skirmish script, leaving the Parlay and Retreat scripts still to go. We also have a template for Troop display (mock up to the left) and are just ironing out the movement paradigm since a lot of the tactical play of the War Destinies flows from this.
Meanwhile, the map expansion proceeds afoot... we have some of the new tile sprites and most of a rough cut map, and should have Parthian territory up and running before May. Also, we have variations on the tile palette for all the territories of the game, although they need testing in-game yet.
On the road towards Beta now... after Battle, it's just Map, and Save to go!
