Sir Edvard Von Innsbruck ventured off to the holy land in search of riches, prestige and to commit to a holy duty. In that order.
It was not however, the way he had expected. That was due to failed navigation on the behalf of the captain of the vessel.
The ship had crashed into a rocky bar a mile off the coast of Muslim controlled Egypt, and Edvard only escaped with the life he had, and a handful of peasants.

Hey GG. Looks good, but to make the oasis more realistic here is what you could do:
1. Place your oasis grass as far out as you want to go.
2. Use a small-sized brush tool with the 'thick scrub' option. Randomly click around the edges of the oasis grass, then put some thick scrub inside the oasis grass too. (To get a blend of the different kinds)
3. Use the 'scrub' brush tool on the second-to-smallest size. Do it like in step 2, but dont place it insize the other grasses.
4.Use a single-tile scrub tool and make little branches coming out of the main oasis.
Just my two cents. :D

well, the oasis is perhaps the weakest part in here, but the desert looks awesome... It's very rare to find crusader map with such various desert design...

I must say, the oasis was just an afterthought.
You may be thinking, what happened to GG?!
Well I just finished my submissions for a competition, and have jumped into a community campaign, but I may upload several packs of maps, just for looksies, later on.
