In this large fertile valley you can build at will. Iron and stone are a long ways away. And the rugged terrain makes for careful planning of farms. The corner of the castle is started for you, and I think the placement of the signpost makes for nice invasion watching.
Happy Valley by Jitz is well-crafted, with a great balance of rabbits, wolves, and bears, as well as resources spread throughout the map. Lots of different things can be done when playing this map.
Playability & Balance: 5
Nothing terribly creative, but has a terrific, well-sculpted terrain.
Map Design: 4 (would be a 5 except some parts of the river could be smoother)
Alas, the story was quite minimal, so only a 2 here.
Fun map, lots of replayability, recommended for download!
