Ports of the Mediterranean

Author File Description
Emperor Alexus
File Details
Map Size: 300x300 (Medium)
Number of Players: 2
Balance: Balanced
Difficulty: Normal
Ports of the Mediterranean:

This is my second skirmish map, the other being Legacy of the Crusades.

This skirmish map is for two players, specifically designed for human battle and not AI opponents.

This Medium size maps allows you to concentrate more on battles than castle building, as you start with a port which encloses your keep, this doesn’t mean you cant extend your base, feel free to add or strengthen you port's fortifications and add towers to gain an advantage when being attacked.

I have disabled some of the buildings that can be used, mostly towers and defensive structures.

The map is balanced, each team on lower ground and able to place the same amount of mines as the other, that is of course until it comes to the iron. This resource is found in the centre of the map between two cliffs, and is guarded by some lions.

There is enough to place four mines of iron each unless one player fails to place it first and the other takes advantage and decides to take all of the iron for him/her self.
This should prove interesting, as fights to control this valuable resource are sure to break out constantly.

There is plenty of farmland and trees although most of the resources lie far from the castle walls; so careful planing will be needed.
The Mediterranean lies east and cliffs, the floor littered with cacti, cliffs surround the ports and gulls fly above innocently, as the battle unfolds below them.

I hope you enjoy this map, as always I look forward to your thoughts, comments and reviews,

Emperor Alexus.
