I Found this map on the Royal Marksman website, and thought it would be quite handy to have a nice clean one that can be written on - quality isnt great as its jpeg and wanted to keep the filesize small for hosting but already an improvement.
Kudos to the person who first made this, I have just cleaned it up.

Thanks for updating my map! :) I initially did this map in a few minutes to give Devante and Lemon an updated political map back when they were both in LB.

I think it would be handy if you, who obviously are much better at graphics stuff than me, could add guild-names and abbrevations to the map as well? I'll make sure it's posted to the MoongatesWiki.

Yep, the map is ancient. :) Also, the loyalist/rebel definition is somewhat wrong when the map is to be displayed outside of LB.

well, if anyone can provide a list of what goes where, I am more than happy to put the names on it. Although anyone could do it, just open up in paint, choose the colour and write a name next to it. :)

Well you can see my amazing graphical skills from that map above. Sure you still want me to add the names? :P

Anyways:

- TV is gone.
- Orc is semi-gone, I think?
- Jhelom is gone. (But is still a crown city, I think.)
- Skara Brae is gone. (But is still a crown city, I think.)
- Buc's Den is gone. (Is obviously not a crown city.)
- Haven has "rebelled". -OH- hangs around there now.
- Maginica collapsed and is gone. (And went back to being a crown city, I think?)
- Minoc is under Cove now?
- Nujel'm is gone.
- Knights Hospitallers needs to be added.
- Beaufort and Knights Templar needs to be added.

Those are the things I can come up with right now.

*nods* I think it's wise to have a chat with them about it. I have no idea about what belongs to whom up there anymore. After I resigned from the Britannia Guards, I seem to have lost track of everything. :)

No use into getting in such minor details.

Who "owns" what. It'll only discourage new players. Just give Minoc the Rebel stamp because it was "liberated" by the rebels not so long ago.

Perhaps its an idea to refer to the map as "where the current active rp folks are situated" instead of an who owns what ?

imo having a map with land distribution is a great idea. gives a more real edge to the RP community. the whole point of the RP community is to try and build an immersive sense of realism inside the UO world.

but as vanqa suggested another map saying where activity usually is would be good for new people to see also.

How many areas in Sosaria are RP heavy?

I'd say the area arround Stonekeep, The Covian barracks and Trinsic West Gate.

Oh and Vesper just before a battle!

There's no point in making a map based on density of role-play. That kind of defeats the point of having such a map in the first place.

Why? I don't see how you can claim areas that are not actually used or rarely visited.

You claim them for RP reasons. You can even battle over them. How many groups can all claim Trinsic?

Yet Cove claims half of the northern lands for a very good reason. As Emery said, it's about role-play. The Crown of Thorns, the Minoc-scenario and the Skara Brae scenario were all about land acquisitions. The entire existence of most guilds are based on land, especially such guilds as the Britannia Guards, which I know the best.
