The Springs of Arda -

For history unremembered the four peaceful kingdoms of Arda have made the beautiful springs and gardens within the crater of Osgiliath a holy place of worship and pilgrimage. Civil war between the kingdoms has broken for ownership of the sacred gardens, and now the springs of Arda run red with blood!

----------------------------------
Here`s the details on this improved version:

-Those annoying cliffs have been leveled to give room to build. Now all computer opponent AI works well with exception of the wolf. Even with enough room he still doesn`t want to build houses.....

-The narrow strips of land in the garden center have been widened and converted to shoals with stepping stones so it isn`t easy to block now.

-Less springs, bigger, cooler fountains!

This map is now very challenging with the computer advantage on max. Try your luck with 3 Lionhearts against you!

----------------------------------

Not just a skirmish, it`s eye candy!

Here`s a challenging map that`s preferable for multiplayer, but can be played with computer opponents too.

STRATEGY:

This map looks complicated, but it`s pretty simple - The only way to the enemy is through the gardens in the middle, where the fighting can get fierce! You can man the garden towers for height advantage. Master the gardens, and you master the game. There`s iron on your patch of green but the stone is on the cliffs at the edges of your territory.


My second submited skirmish map. The names were inspired by JRR Tolkien`s "Silmarillion". On the same note, I`m currently working on a map pack called "Wars of the Silmarillion", which will feature some of the battle events of this great book. Look for it soon.

Enjoy!
