Hmm, now I’m slightly confused.
The 6-mile hex is supposedly 32 square miles and the 24-mile hex is 500 square miles. Now, I assume these are approximations, because it doesn’t seem to pan out. I’ve seen discussion on these forums refer to the actual values as various things, but I’d really, really like to know what are the exact values.
I’m actually considering handling realm management outside of the hex context in certain cases, looking directly at square miles instead. However, I’d like to be able to go between the hex and square mile contexts without mysteriously losing square mileage.
