Playability: 3
There was practically no area for me to build my castle. If you delete some trees in the almost open areas, that will increase this score.

Balance: 3
There are way too much deer, making less will even that up. I found that I started with a little too much food, as I needed a second granary as the game started.

Creativity: 3
There is too much iron, and the stone is placed in the middle of no where.

Map Design: 3
The sea is creative, with the rivers flowing in to them, but the sea seemed a little too narrow.

Story/Instructions: 3
There wasn't much of a story.

Additional Comments:
Overall, this is a nice map that could use some fixing up.

Nice freebuild, with a few flaws.

Well playabile, although I regret, that there is no sign post to test my castle against invasions. But trade is possible and I built up a thriving economy.
The map is not outstanding. The sea is rather dull. There is more to do with a seashore. Think of stones, on the beach or in the sea, some small shrubs. But when this was meant to be a very calm inland see, I’m (almost) ok with that.
Your rivers are good. I liked especially the NW corner of the map, with the waterfalls. Very well done.
As mentioned before you placed a lump of stone in the middle of nowhere. Although good for many quarries, it is really unnatural. The iron, on a hill, was slightly better, but not perfect, though.
There was no story, but an explanation of the map.
Summary: good map, that needs some small changes.
Have a look at other freebuilds about the placing of stone.
I enjoyed playing your map, thank you.
