of using different grids to your advantage - maybe it's faster at the

strike out for B Nomic, for example.-

How are other grids scaled? I got the impression that Nomicron's was
not a Grid upon which players could walk around, but more of a
theoretical world where each square represented a large tract of land,
an entire estate by itself.

Thermo does not yet have a grid. Therefore, B Nomic can have some input into what its scale is, as part of the motivation would be the sheer coolness of

We seem to be doing a bit of both - the grid was player-scaled up until Armies arrived; now it's actually kind of absurd - a space small enough
to be filled by a single player so that no other player can enter is
somehow large enough to hold an entire Army?

Maybe they're armies of elves.

Some of them actually are. But then again, some players, myself included, are also Elves, and I'm not particularly smaller than, say, an Ogre... Well, 90 vs 300, I guess, but still, my 90... uh... cubic units are enough to keep other players out. Yet somehow I can get an army of many of Elves in a space that could only hold me if I were there. For that matter, I can get an army of Ogres in said space. That doesn't seem right, somehow.
