A fun, enjoyable map to play, especially for a first attempt!

Very playable map - good balance of animals and different resources. The resources were all fairly close to the keep (especially the iron and stone) - spread out more they would present an additional challenge.
Playability: 4
Balance: 3

The map had some neat things and some things that kind of made me wonder. The stream, for instance, which comes from a waterfall and abruptly ends (in a spring maybe). Also, I really liked the drawbridge and stairs leading to the stone and iron by the keep, but even after demolishing the middle tower and putting in a gatehouse, the people couldn't enter the castle that way. After all the work of putting in such a terrific bridge, I just thought it odd that it only accessed the resources, but not the adjacent keep. It doesn't detract anything from the playability, though! The graveyards and castle were well done. My only other suggestion might be to do something more with the fields on the side of the keep (with the extra stockpile) - vegetation or varied terrain perhaps.
Creativity: 3.5
Map Design: 3

Minimal but adequate story to set the scene: 3

Overall, a very playable map, and interesting to look at. You're off to a great start designing!
