IT IS RUDE TO NOT READ THIS!

STORY:

Since you were young you've been obsessed with fire. You prefer your bread burned, your meat very well burned and you've also lost count of how many times you've burned your house.

Your name? Sir Ilik Flamealot! After being knighted by the king for your outstanding discovery of the braziers, fire ballista and insane engineers with smoking, burning, flaming pots from hell, you were given an estate in the Charred Forest.

Several years have passed comfortably until one day an old friend of yours, Sir Igot Burndalot suddenly arrives at your door clad with bright armor and wielding shiny blades! You are shocked that one of your closest friends is now trying to kill you.

In fact, this is the same friend that invited you to his marriage a couple years ago, during which you both had a wonderful time while you played your very funny joke by replacing their wedding cake with a Mentos® + Coke® volcano (I mean you didn't want to make a real oil/pitch volcano cause that would cause way too much excitement). You do not understand why he has so much enmity towards you especially since by the time you left his wedding your beloved friend was crying tears of happiness!

You arrive at the conclusion that the enemy at your door cannot be your real friend, Sir Burndalot. He must be an impostor!

With your heart on fire and your temper ablaze you promise your good ol' friend that you shall burn this outrageous impostor to the ground! Then you realized that all you really learned to do is....well...burn stuff.

You order your peasants to pick up their torches, light their arrows, and charge! I meant BURRRNNNNNNN!!!!!

Advice:

This map is not meant for people that are firephobic. If you cannot handle the heat and hate hot things in general then DO NOT DOWNLOAD!

Now, if you are a flaming maniac with 'Sizzling' as your middle name and 'Burnt' as your last name then you came to the right place.

Master this map til the end and you shall be re-christened as Sir Ilik Flamealot!

And also a surprise from your childhood awaits you if you can burn your way to the final invasion.

At beggining I enjoyed so much this map... However Little by little with the time, the map becomes boring. And did you playtested the map? You wouldn't have the patience to play so much this scenario.

Balance: 3
Here you could put some more challenge. The scenatio is quite easy. The A. swordsmen and the E. Swordsmen doesn't damage you so bad, especialy if they are alone and few. I've seen that you tried some combination of troops but... too few. I'm sure that increasing the number of troops should prove a bigger challenge.

Creativity: 4
Excelent! I think the creativity is the best category from your scenario. You must have some imagination for such fun story, for the little forest from your map and also for the bonuses. Yea... the bonuses... I felt so good when I got them! Well done!

Map Design: 3.5
Well... the map design isn't very special. The map is small and you fill it all with trees. The only good thing is the castle. It has an interesting design.

Story/Instructions: 3.5
A short story about the braveness of a man called Flamealot who become enemy with Sir Burnalot. A bit basic too. Also the words "Several years have passed comfortably" means that in several years didn't happen anything? I don't think so. The story deserves more but in rest is good.

Keep going! you'll be a good mapmaker.
