I loved it! I can tell right away this map is perfect for multiplayer, and it works good for AI as well.
The terrain is perfectly balanced and there are equall amounts of stone/iron for all keep locations. I like maps like this with minimal resources - it makes for a more challenging multiplayer scenario. The only thing I'd change would be to add a little more trees and to space the keeps more equally.
I really like the layout. the spider-web pattern of water is interesting

Great! Plenty of room to build, yet the keeps are relatively close, so defense is paramount. You really have to scrounge for oasis space and the plots of land in the middle are fought over continuosly
No story to speak of, but you provided instructions, and that's all you really need for skirmish maps. A good story gets a 5 though!

Although there weren't iron in this map....it's cool..i love placing restrictions in maps, that way it's more challenging. great design and a good map..
