This map is a basic Freebuild, your on a peaceful island with, mere wolves and a few bears to desturb your peace not much space to build all over so cut down some trees to get really started, well hope ye enjoy the map!! ^_^
I enjoyed the little island in this map! It seemed like a peaceful place - quite nice to hang out in after a war! The atoll off to the right was also interesting... I wish it had been closer to the main island so I could have used it. My main suggestion for this map would be to give the player fewer goods to start with, and then provide the resources in the map so that more can be produced over the course of the game. For example, a well-supplied armory in the beginning is nice, but I'd like to be able to mine some ore to make replacement weapons, rather than just buying them in the market. That's just a suggestion - having so many items already supplied made it an easy game. There was a good balance of wolves and bears - I didn't see them coming at first and they took out some archers!
For the map itself, I really liked the layout of the island. The rivers and ruins created visual interest, and there was a good mixture of different types of terrains. Using the smaller brush sizes would make the edges of water and grassland smoother.

Short but adequate story in the game itself.
