File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Number of Players: 4
Balance: Unbalanced
Difficulty: Normal
Ahoy! This untouched place in central Africa once was the so called "Immortal Throne"... A deserted soldier almost dead from dryness finally found an oasis and ,while exploring the entire jungle, he found the throne! Disapointed and despered that he didn't found water, he touched the sacred relic in the middle of Immortal Throne... KA-BOOM!!! A shiny lightning shaked the all nearby area, causing death... Exhausted the soldier looked around himself and saw the destroyed forest, knowing that he was the one who destroyed it... Calmed, after few minutes, he tough everything's over, but after a few seconds a second shiny lighting, just right behind him... A meteor! He noticed that some strange black shaped are going forward him... "So far, so good... Now what?"... bilions of shadows attacked him at once... and most amazingly died at once... the soldier has already been transformed into an immortal, who can kill anything only using his old, bloody katana... Four lords, who seen the lightings from miles gone into action to see what's going out there... however a bloody war was approaching. It was a question who will get first to the immortal throne, guarded by the immortal soldier and his 9 slaves... but would be the first, who reached it, the first who died too? You choose your destiny, get divine powers or sleep forever...


OK, enough with my writer's skills, I hope that you at least understood something from the story... Excuse me for my awful english, but last time I wasn't liked, because of my ignoring to write a story... Hey, at least I tried... Without translator! :D You've seen everything ,told in the story, in the map ;) IMPORTANT!!! Because of a minimap bug, you'll see almost no trees on the minimap, so my solution is to show you a screen of the jungle n the middle. The minimap's wrong, so don't look at it. Here's the screen:

Tell me for eventual bugs and glitches. Reviews would be appreciated.Also there are some obstacles inside the jungle and next to the Immortal throne - some visible some not. I won't spoil the fun, you'll find them, when you notice your farmers misteryously dying :D The things aren't so, like they look :)

Happy hunting! xD

I forgot to add... The AIs work normally with the map, although there's stone and iron for exactly one quarry and one mine per player... Few buildings can't be build in this scenario.

BlaBlaBlia nice idea =)
AZ ViTrAzhAs Finally a skirmish map with some disabled features - they usually give a challenge.

Great work, The Hitman.

Well, not much are disabled... You can still recruit arabians, didn't wanted to spoil the fun of the slingers... At least some not important features are removed. (like hunter's post etc.)
peter2008 With wood and bows / I'll smash my foes, at least the AIs and also these mysterious ones.
Should try this map as multi-player match cause it promisses immediate struggle for the exposed resources of stone and iron.

You will hardly defeat the hidden dangers in the jungle with bowmen... If you are about to play it in multiplayer, best played East VS West.

Very fun to play this is one of the first times where I really did have to go with archers and spears. The traps in the middle add a little bit to the make and make it more enjoyable to play. However I wondered why the oasis had small patches of regular earth to make it so you could not build there. It would have been enjoyable to cut down the trees and be able to take the land. I also like how since the players are all equally distant from each other you can do any teams you want.

Balance: 4.5
Everybody has the exact amount of resources. Oasis is nearly equal. Space is nearly equal, good job. You made a nice balanced skirmish.

Creativity: 4
A forest full of assasins and traps, sure makes you think about going through it doesnt it? I wish there had been more assasins though.

Alright here I think the scenario wasnt that good. The most obvious thing is the border. The border is the exact same thing all around, mix it up and make it a little more random. I personally think rocks look better than Iron for the kind of landscaping you were doing. You could of added more terraining to the areas around the players castles too.

Story/Instructions: 3.5
You said you do not know english well, but the story is not just a little confusing to read it is very confusing to read please try to correct because it does sound interesting.

Additional Comments:This is a good solid map.

I reccomend trying it.

OK, first thanks a lot for rating... The white spots below the trees are one kind of stumps and I just didn't wanted when you cut the forest to establish a food company on it, alright :D About the english, how do you want from me to write it on correct english... I neither speak or study english, the translators are weird and it occurs to be impossible for me to correct my mistakes, my appologies, give me a straight 1 because I'm not from USA.
SUBINDXSUBIN The story was easy for me to understand.

Jubu, you should be able to understand that if you know the language. ;)

Anyway, I expect that it was changed after the review.

All it needs are a few word rearrangements and some commas.

it's not complicated in fact... I just can't find the right words to tell it on english... anyway I'm happy that at least anyone has understood it :D And most surprisingly that's Subin!
