I initially started with block map of the countries involved and the position of their capitals, then created a second map which added the provinces with their main towns.
After this I was going to create a detailed map .. well I got lazy. So I decided on a different plan: run a series of scenarios and create the town names etc as I go and draw them onto the map.
So far this has worked and in short bursts of imagination my map is filling out. I'll keep going with the scenarios and fill more in. At the moment the disputed province of Belgravia is the most detailed.
I started on a sheet of A4 paper and I am going to have to increase this to A3 size, copy over what I've got then carry on adding to it.
Hopefully I'll post a well drawn out version of the map when its mature enough.
a base for the the Ampitheatre ...
