It's a freebuild scenario, so estimate the playability isn't very easy. I put my keep in the South, and I can easily develop myself. There's a lot of plains, so it's quite easy to quickly develop the castle. Yet, we have the choice between the poor plains in the South (but with iron and stone), or the high plains in the North. I chose the South. The only problem I saw comes from the market. In a freebuild scenario, it's a problem for me to do not have the possibility to trade the goods. Indeed, I've more than 10 000 Gold money, but it's impossible to trade something. It's for me a problem.
Not a lot of things to say here... We begin with a lot of resources, so it's easy to develop the castle. However, the market doesn't have any utility.
What I like in yoru map is the separation North/South.
North --> High plain, many trees, and marecages for oil.
South --> Low plains, low trees, but iron and stone
So, we've to choose.
Map Design: 3.5
The design is quit eoriginal, with a lot of walls, but, in fact, it's just a large plain with a big river in the middle. Even if the walls are quite beautiful, making a design quite original, it's not exceptionnal. I find the map too... rectilinear.
Nothing, just some words in the Topic
Quite good. I was disappointed by the market.
