How about having different height values for the terrain so that there are hills (and maybe cliffs)?

-dynamically placed on the map if the difference between the height values of 2 adjacent tiles are above a certain threshold=

The main problem here is our graphics, the entire system is 2d and more so, its not isometric, so doing varying height would only serve to make the graphics look horrendously bad, if we could even get an artist to do them.

Extra cheese comes at a cost. Bradley Arsenault.
