This is my second submitted map, which is part of a "series" containing 4 maps.
This map is made for 8 players, but of course, you can play with less.
As you see in the Minimap, there is a great river crossing some hilly terrain with plenty of oasis and a lot of other resources as well, allowing you to build a really big stronghold!
Of course, you may disagree, but I think it's a very nice map and I personally really like it. It offers quite a bit of tactical potential and offers various starting positions with different, but not to different conditions for each Player.
For example, you can use the big river, due to which I give the name to this map, to your advantage.
The ZIP file contains the map file "River Landscape", an overview picture and 2 text files (1 editor; 1 Microsoft word) with some more details about the map, a short story and a translation of the describing text in the map.
When downloading the file you may notice that the ingame short-description is written in German.
This is an international community, so I write my texts in English, but I made the map before discovering this site and I hope you may excuse this bit of identification as a native German-speaker, also I have put the translation into the text files.
I hope you will like my map and maybe comment and rate it, so have fun playing it!
I also would like to receive some tips, if you think that there is something, which could be done better. If possible without changing the whole map, I will make a few changes to it and update the download file to even improve its gameplay.
Edit 03-02-2009: I have cleared something with the file names.
