If anybody wonders where I've gone over the next couple of days, the answer is "mapping." I need to add some deserts to the map and handle the political end of the mapping now that the physical end is done. I made great progress this evening, and I think almost all of the regions are now in place (still putting the finishing touches on Margiana's* border-syncing it to the Oxus is a pain). Now it's just a matter of name and owner changing, flipping a couple of regions in India, and verifying that all of the resources are where they say the are in descr_strat. I know the last one isn't technically necessary, but proper commenting now could save me or someone else a lot of time down the road.
*Yes, Merv will now be in the proper place, not way the heck up past Sogdiana.
