Hello. This is my first map. Well, its my first one that I've tried anyway. Not much to say, so I'll get on with the Story...

------------------------------------------------------
875 A.D.

Lord Malardin Jimbialsson and his three sons set off on an adventure to the Holy Land to take a peice of land left by the King as he left. Lord Halad Marladinsson, his eldest son, soon left by himself for better land. Along the way some Saracens ambushed him and hes men, killing all.

Lord Malardin and his two remaining sons were wondering why the daily letters had stopped, and went after him. After two weeks of riding, they came upon the site that had been the deathbed of their beloved son and brother. They created a keep upon the area, vowing to defend it for the rest of their lives...
------------------------------------------------------
Well thats it. Have fun! Comments welcome. And remember, this IS my first map.

The map is pretty cool. There are a variety of places to put your keep. Only at the same time I hate lions, and usually they become a problem in a map no matter where they are because...they just move around. Also, the stone and the iron, for the most part was inaccesible. See how many stone mines/iron mines you can place in the editor to check how much can be used. Also, the limited buildings were a little annoying.

The map is not too hard, but for a castlebuilder I suppose it shouldn't be. The lions add some challenge to it, as well as the limited buildings.

This map I felt was a little more creative than average in limiting the player to the use of low wall only and the two lowest towers, and at that with no crenelations. Also, I'm not sure it's too often you see a Crusader level with spearmen and archers being the only available troop types.

Map Design: 3
The map design was okay. If you really are a newb, as pointed out by your name, that's pretty good work on the landscape. I liked the oasis, and the falls. The ruins were cool too, in the hills I mean. However there were some place where there were animals or resources that were completely innaccessible.

Story/Instructions: 4
It has a story, and it goes along with what the situation is. Not to mention, I just liked the story for some reason.

Additional Comments:

Overall, not bad. A few things that could use fixing, but other than that, really not bad.
