Command and conquer your ennemies to your hearts' content. Build up your army and plough through the center with your worthy team, where you will be swarmed with arrows from all who opposes you. This is truly the Road to Hell...

*hint: Because you must pass by the center to attack, you can build towers on your side of the hole. Like this you can weaken any hostile forces entering the hole a little easier... ;)
I've just finished playing it. It's a fun map, well done and very well balanced.
Everyone should download it and give it a try!

very fun map. I played it through with me and an allied Saladin on one quarter of the map and the rest allied against us. Directly as the game started my allied saladin started requesting for wood for some reason. I didn't understand why as there was plenty of wood on the map. There wasn't very much stone avalible, so had to buy a bit of that. After a while when my population started to grow I ran out of food so I decided to give up food production and only use ale. That worked good, after a while when my economy was up and running I started making food again and forced my people to pay very large taxes. For attacking I used an attack turtle and 10 assasins and that was very succesful, I think I lost about two horse archers.
This is a very flexible map, You can make it as easy as possible and almost impossible if you want to.
I see you have taken more time making landscape. But yet skirmishes aren't that time consuming and don't requier very much work to make well balanced and good looking.
Map Design: 4
Like I said yiu have taken more time crreating good loking landscpae on this map. The island in the middle looks really good, but the rest of the map, it fills its purpose, but it soen't look very natural.
No story, but enough instructions to make one understand whats going on.
Another Skirmish map from Pat dark knight with four squares. 3.8 is not a bad score but I see you have the potential to make good maps now don't waste it on making skirmishes that no one will remember, yes skirmishes are fun to play, but there are thousands of well balanced skirmishes out there. Make invasions instead, they are much more funny to play and if they are good people will remember them and play them again.
