Two keeps are located in the desert separated by a large plateau in the shape of California. There are two rivers originating on the plateau. They tumble down the plateau escarpment before drying up in the desert. There are several paths down the cliff sides to the valleys. All the grass and wood are on the plateau. The iron and stone are at the base of the plateau escarpment. The map is balanced with the two sides forming a near mirror image. I have been trying to make or find maps that promote large scale battles, therefore the name Armageddon 2 Total War. The large wide plateau does two things to help. First there is enough seperation to allow time to develop an economy. Second the width of the plateau has enough space for large armies.
