Hello everyone!

This is Paradox_king talking, or is it Sir Ravenclaw? You'll never know! We've decided to created a joint account to produce some awesome maps.

This is our pilot project: The Fallen City.
(Base design and most terrain/playtesting by paradox_king - Raven~)

Story:
Thaurissian was the perfect city. The impenetrable bastion of Arabian might in these lands. It was the shining beacon of Arabian supremacy in the desert. That is, it was, until it was defeated.

Now it lies abandoned and many bandits use it as a quick route through the desert. A few bandit lords feel if they can set up a city inside it they can capture it and use it for their own ends.

PIE=GOOD

(just so ya know)

fantastic ... the possibilities are huge. you can march men along existing walls, use walls for defence, knock them down to build better walls....and the resources give a good start to a war machine.

It could be better, as some AIs tend to really cramp up in the space. Maybe you could add more land near the rivers for more space. But the map is really great for multiplayer

Balance: 5
I don't really need to say much. Everything is balanced.

Creativity: 5
The map design is very creative. The castle layout is really good.

I'd give you a 5, but there's a small problem. I noticed in the eastern keep, the iron is blocked off. Maybe you could fix that up. Im not sure if the same thing happens in other places on the map so check around.

Story/Instructions: 5
Yeah it's a good summary for the map. Pie is good too. xp

Additional Comments:
A really good map, though there are a few small problems. If you fix them, I'll give you a full score.
By the way,
Happy New Year. haha.
