In the Land of Araby where it is below sea level a beautiful waterfall came down from where the sea met with the river. Of course there was a battle for the land because the river was a strong point for domination. Out of two lords one gained the upper hand and won the battle. This man was the sultan of Araby and after gaining dominance he built two castles at two intervals on the river from where it could be passed albeit small ones but they could hold out none the less. Wealth flowed to the Sultan and he lived without a care. He is dead now and more lords have come to take his lands. His two castles are broken from sieges and are overgrown with shrubs.
About the river. People have begun to notice that the river has begun to expand as it goes down to the rest of the land. If it was not for tree roots holding the land around the river together it would have already grown to gigantic proportions. But now people are cutting those trees unbeknown to them about how they hold the river together. But good things are happening from the expanding. The river is getting shallower and more places to cross are becoming available. And lush farmland is appearing beside the river but it's not uncommon to hear one's farm is flooded.
6 Lords are currently in that region. The two richest are on the hill with their allies on the desert on either side of the river. They're preparing for war. Which side will you join.
I found this extremely easy to play. I built this massive castle in about 15 minutes. I tried playing against Wazir, Pig, Frederick. I noticed that the players in the top part of the map had more battle action, whereas the castles on bottom of the map didn't attqack eachother that much at all. Everynow and then. Not sure why that happened but hey they do. Fun to play though becuz I made this sweet castle.
Pretty evenly balanced. Stone & Iron were dispersed relatively equally. No problems there. Besides the fact that the two castles had the higher ground.
It was pretty creative. Like the story. I didn't notice the ford at te very bottom crossing the the whole river until I waas attacked. lol. But I survived of course. lol.So that was a neat twist. I'm not sure why I would find a bout a million rabbits in the desert. lol. I killed them all the minute I started. (U must be thinking I hate rabbits)The river looked pretty good. The map looked like "Gold in them there hills" only vertical.
Map Design: 4
Looked fine to me. In the desert I noticed that there was a few little patches of earth showing through. Be sure to cover those up. It makes it look a little sloppy. Not very noticable though. River looked pretty good. Lets face it, it looked like a river. lol.
Very creative story. I'm sure you made that up yourself. Very imaginative. So for that I give u a 5!
Pretty Good map! Can't wait to see more!
