V2.0 JimmY Millington, Robs Schone and Lynsey Smith
Five Different Coloured Powers vie for control of the Rainbow Coloured
Map based upon Romans V1.0 until I can draw up a new one.
All provinces and sea spaces have been renamed, in tune with the multihued
nature of the game.
Take a Romans Map, and convert province names as follows:

All the Numbers get removed, and so the game isn't influenced by who should own
what tunis, and by the fact that the numbers are there at all!

Dark:     Obsidian, Ebony, Jet
Light:    Ghost, Ivory, Alabaster
Red:      Ruby, Crimson, Vermillion
