    Very nice try, really, but no.

    Keep on guessing, people, fingers crossed, I really hope someone will finally hit it.

    Yes, we are thinking, but making custom settlements is a lot of work.

    Based on the guesses already presented in this thread and the hints (the factions is Middle Eastern and 4 of them are from the BC 2.4 preview), I present another guess.

    the Imamate of Yemen
    the Atabegs of Mosul
    the Seljuks of Kerman
    the Kingdom of Alania
    the Atabegs of Luristan (Hazaraspids) for the surprise faction

    I assume the map will not be expanded in 2.4, so that is unlikely.
    The factions which are in the current map size are:

    Kingdom of Alania
    Atabegs of Azerbaijan
    Atabegs of Mosul
    Malikate of Mazandaran
    Atabegs of Fars
    Atabegs of Kerman
    Imamate of Yemen
    Kingdom of Ethiopia (partly)
    And Kara Khitai partly


    If that is correct, it cannot be to difficult to get the 4 right

    My second guess: Atabegs of Azerbaijan, Imamate of Yemen, Kingdom of Alania, Atabegs of Fars, Atabegs of Kerman

    That is very astute of you! I can't believe I failed to notice that. I wouldn't bet money against the map being expanded early, but that is very logical, especially since vast swaths of the current size are occupied by rebels.

    I looked at the expanded map preview to get a sense for what factions would be viable and I've also noticed that the map depictions are slightly incorrect as to their 2.2/2.3 borders --the expansion preview shows the current map cut off at Yemen at the south end of the Arabian Penn like you cannot sail around it -- but we know we can. So it's a little bigger than that seems to indicate, at least on the south end (meaning Ethiopia might really be viable, but I'd not put stock in that either).


    I'm going in for another charge:
    Malikate of Mazandaran, Imamate of Yemen, Atabegs of Mosul, Atabegs of Kerman

    5th surprise faction wild guess:
    Seljuk Turks of Hamadan / Atabegs of Hamadan

    Monsieur wins!



    We will soon decide how exactly to award you, zburanuki, as TMK, who is originator of this whole quiz, will be busy for couple of days.

    The 5th faction is still a secret and a surprise, and let it be so.

    Thank you, thank you. Yes it was something of an evolved team effort in a way. I'd like to thank Dr. Jones, and all the little people who helped make it happen too +reps all around!

    I'm pretty excited about Mazandaran, I just didn't guess it my first time around, because it's so small, thinking they might go for a faction that takes up more provinces. Glad they will be in!

    We will not disclose the fifth faction, at least for a while.

    Please be patient for few days, we have to prepare a sneak preview, you were working hard to guess the factions, and we don't want to show you give you just any information.

    Congratulations to zburanuki for guessing the 4 factions correctly and Dago the Red getting close to it!

    I am also glad that the Malikate of Mazandaran will already be in 2.4. I will love playing as a true Persian faction and their starting position is also very nice.
