The river valleys of the Fertile Crescent offer life in the lifeless desert. But you must fight for your share or perish on the high hot plains. Venture down to the lush river valleys, but remember to keep a watchful eye on your far flung resources as they are vulnerable to marauding enemy units.
Suggestion: Take up your position on the smaller of the two center plateaus (bottom of the map).
Well, this map was great. I enjoyed it. The playability was great. A bit annoying trying to gather food, but I like challenges. I loved if an enemy attempted to attack, you had the advantage of being on the higher ground. But when it came to you attacking them, they had the advantage.
Balance between each player was perfect. Nobody missed out on anything. Fair amont of resources to go around.
This is a definite 5. The idea of this map is very original and very cool to play. I loved how the keeps were set on high terrain and you had to venture down into the valleys to get food.

Not a 5, but close. I see you are talented at terraining, but it would have been better if you had added a few more rocks. Rivers were also good and plenty of fords to cross them. Good idea.
Very short story, but a good use of descriptive words. Also a plus to adding a suggestion on where to play.
Two thumbs up for this. It is a great skirmish. I haven't played one like this for a long time.
IntoTheBlackness, you have a lot of potential. Keep these great maps coming.
