Devil's Lair

Author File Description
Pat Dark Knight
File Details
Map Size: 300x300 (Medium)
Number of Players: 4
Balance: Balanced
Difficulty: Normal
Minimap:
Legend has it that numerous ghostly figures have haunting, in partnership with the devil, to carry his plans to conquer these vast lands, which are presently owned by you and three other Lords. For some years now, this legend has been considered false, to the relief of the people, for the lands called the 'lost pits' (a large stable dip in the land, where lots of minerals and rock can be found), were never occupied by these ghostly figures.

But overnight, following a strangely cold evening, loud sounds and disturbances were heard and reported all around the pit, as well as young children starting to go missing and disapearing, never to be found again. Your people call this 'the work of the devil' , and they've decided to never set foot in these pits ever again, now called the 'devil's Lair'.

These Land were peacefully seperated in four, equal for every Lord. The task given to you and your three trustworthy Lords, is to destroy all of the devil's men, to be able to stop his attempts to conquer these lands. But once this task is completed, beware of the Devil's curse which will give you greed to take control of all the minerals and ressources for you, and you only. This will probably affect all four Lords, which will make them all turn on everyone else...

Good Gaming,
Pat Dark Knight

A very playable, nicely balanced map!

Balance: 5
I agree with Sir Lurchalot - competing for the resources in the middle was fun, and started the action very early in the game.

Not an eye candy map, but one with a realistic looking terrain. Skirmish maps can look very unnatural due to the desire to make them balanced, but the landscape in this one is very nicely done, especially the scattering of the stone and iron.

Nice story, and the download includes a text file as well as the story on the download page.

Additional Comments:

Wow. Thanks alot Kester for the review. Every review posted gives the author a more accurate feeling of the accomplishements of his maps, and I couldn't ask for more.

I am presently taking a slower approad at creating maps, reasons are that school starts, and also want to get a better feel for the maps, and explore for other great maps.

Thanks to everyone for their support,

It was VERY fun and challenging.. this is definately a map to play over and over again and set new goals for yourself.. This map gout me VERY angry but i just loved to much to stop playing.

As long as yuh know where to look every person has their fair share of resources. Where you placed them, was very agrrivating but only added to the score by simply making the match better
