I didn’t see your map before the update, but I’m glad you changed things. It is now a nice freebuild.
Although I prefer a freebuild without a castle, this one is very playable and gives enough room for the fantasy of the player. And the castle is beautiful!
Playability 4. Although I started with an empty granary, I could grow enough food to make my peasants happy. There is no possibility to trade, so you continuously have to make decisions about your priorities. I liked that.
Creativity 3,5. No special creativity, apart from the castle.
Map design: 3,5 The landscape is average (I liked that small blue lake, though), but the castle is nice.
Story 4. A good story, but more capitals and punctuation make it more readable.
