At the dawn of creation the ancients left an imprint on the earth to be remembered by: the Star of the Ancients. Through-out history the Star of the Ancients has been the cause of death of many Lords as they battle for control of the Star. The constant fighting has caused the ancients to weep, dividing the star into four quadrants in a bid for peace. Will you make the ancients weep?
In designing the map I used Saladin's castles for measuring space around the keep. Some of the castles are a bit tight, but they work.
The twist is that the farmland is mainly on a plateau as opposed to regular ground height where farmland is usually found.
I actually didn't have a two on two in mind ,Yasko, not in particular anyway. I only had the stone and iron and two locations so there would be more of a struggle to control these resources, although I can see that having it in four places would make it more difficult for 1 player to dominate the resources, thus letting the other Lords build more of an economy and be more of a viable competition. Thank-you for your reviews, btw, they're very in-depth and full of helpful advice.
