I can play it. But it's not good for multiplayer. I prefer to play with AI. It's nice to play in the middle islands, surrounded by wolves. Their mangonel made me crazy when i tried it. But the recources, too many. For iron it's too many... that what makes this map easy
The map is unbalance. But you made a detail balance between the west and east. good job! But it's a bit easier for me...
Well, the map isn't creative. First the design. It's not creative. But i'll talk about it in the map design. And the story, your story seems pretty good. Some lords who searched for goods. But we'll talk about it in the story
Map Design: 1
well.... first try to reduce the irons and boulders quantity. And use the smaller option and variate the iron. And the location. Example, you can put iron in the mount with some rock. Then, the grass. Variate it. Join the oasis grass and the thick grass. Then variate it. Then add some trees and shrubs. You can download surajsubba's map then see the design. DONT EDIT FOR COPYING just watch then create like that.... now river. Everyone said that this is a river. But accoding to the story (desert strait v1.1) it's a sea. You can change the sea to river. Then add some rocks, beach in small options then add to the river. Then some fords. For more detail you can download surajsubba's map then you see the river. Or in the mapmacking 101.....
Well the story pretty good you know? Some lords try to find out about the mysterious rich land. Like "Terra Australis Incognita". But need some change. Like, improvement. Somebody must improve about the heaven. Is it true? The real, they'll find out it's real or not..... but you can variate. Like they're do it without thinking. And about the guardian.... you can change it to local people that don't want they sacred land destroyed... be creative!!
Well need more change. If you still confuse, ask pro mapmacker. Like Pat Dark Knight or Suraj Subba

It does have a few flaws over all it is pretty good
Each side is almost identical and certain players don't get any advantages
Map Design: 3
So so could use a lot of work. DON'T take it as an insult!!
