Three castles close together, two on the west side and one on the east. The three castles seem evenly matched but the right kind of person might think otherwise.
In addition, this map is not really intended for AI. Although, I have played two rats with only small problems, any other AI player’s castle will probably be too big for the area in which they start out.
This map was really intended for people who like close combat and using only the "basics." Of course, to get the type of game play where you need the "basics," starting resources must be turned down low.
