Do you mind me asking, but what's with the atrocities in Ireland?  I read the scenario but got nought from it.

To the Wyrms reoccupy the entire island or are they the actions of the Ulster branch?

Well, after the little Nuclear War, and the rise o the White Wyrm in Britain, there was a lot of discussion about "retaking Ireland" by the Wittengamot. Combine this with the mass flow of refugees/dissidents escaping from the remnant UK, and the fact that Ireland has it's own Unionist conflict in the North before, and things get pretty sticky. The White Wyrm invades in '75-ish to support local groups allied with it in the north. and then cover Dublin in Anthrax (they found a lot of it from the old government...). Really, a theme of the idea is that the White Wyrm has no good reason to last, because it is incompetent, dedicated to killing most of it's own population, anti-industrial and faces large opposition from much of the country (including dedicated local opposition in Wales and Scotland), but everything is so messed up it manages to totter on. It's hard to tell from the map, but by the 'early 80s the White Wyrm had already lost control of much of Scotland and Wales a little later, but it was only finally ended when France, Germany, the United States, and the old Colonies got their stuff together in the early '80s and could no longer ignore Britain by '86. The gas attacks were just the White Wyrm's last desperate struggle.

Ah I see, I would have said that if they had reoccupied the whole of Ireland there should have been a hell of lot more atrocities across the whole island.

Depressing, but a pretty awesome concept!

The skull symbol for massacres looks rather weird, though, and it's hard to tell the difference between the largest two sizes on the map itself.

Thanks. Yeah, making icons is difficult. It's hard to balance being understood with the simplicity needed for this scale. And the scales are definitely wrong. I only decreased by 80% for each one (from the largest), which makes it difficult to tell the biggest and second biggest, and the smallest and second smallest. If i'd did it again I'd do more like 66% I think.
