Mercenary map version 2

Progress on my map for my upcoming Traveller Mercenary campaign.  This is a backwater area of the Thune Empire with a few of its semi-autonomous regions (comte').  Thune will be my equivalent of the 3rd Imperium and the Gashnr is dominated by non-humans.  I don't know how much I want to develop the whole region as I really just want to focus on the mercenary aspect.  I plan on different regions offering different weapons at differing tech levels and qualities as well as availability.

Test overview map for new Merc campaign

I'm going to start putting together a Traveller mercenary campaign and here is my first draft of my area map.

The sage area (which stretches off map as well) will be my version of the Imperium with all other colors except gold representing minor human polities.  Areas without shading represent independent areas.  The gold area represents another major race besides humans, but I haven't thought that out yet.  It may be unimportant for actual gameplay, just fluff.

Immortals - The Movie

The wife and I rented Immortals over the weekend.  The wife complained about the lack of plot, but I thought there was enough plot to make the story work.  What I really liked about it was the hero's, Theseus, motivation to do what was right no matter what odds he faced or without regard to being cool.  Now how do I get my players to adopt a motivation even a fraction of Theseus'?
