Compared to your other works, this map is probably one of the better.

Playability: 4.5
It's a landscape scenario, so we don't have any specific objective, or restriction. The map is full of resources, and we begin with a lot of resources, so we can quickly make a strong city (when I left the game, I'd more than 200 peasants). It was really amusing to play on it. No stress, just a strong and quick development, quite sympathic.

Balance: 4.5
I don't know if we can speak about a kind of difficulty in a landscape game. So, all I have to say here is that we begin with a lot and resources, especially about the Gold, so this landscape is more easy than another landscape (for instance, "The Ourea II"). That's not a problem. With that, we can quickly create a strong city.

Creativity: 3
Not really original, it's just a classic landscape with some resources dispateched in the map. Anyway, making an original landscape isn't really easy, so I don't blame you for that.

Map Design: 4
Quite beautiful. The map design is varied, with a lot of mountains, but also rivers, forests, lakes, marecages, stone, iron, oasis... The final result is quite beautiful. In a way, the organization of the map is quite chaotic, but I liked that.

Story/Instructions: 1.5
Not a lot of things here, the Achilles heel of your map...

Additional Comments:
It's really a good work ! The map is quite beautiful, and it's very pleasant to play on this map.
evil_space_cows Looks a fun map!

(Quite frankly, I like forgiving landscapes, as they give you a bit of a break.)
