This is my firs try to make a crusader skirmish map.
Sorry for my bad English.
Once upon a time,i the desert there lived the Evil Black Baron.Black baron was once one of the yongest crusader lords that where going to concurer Jerusalem.After few raids,Black Baron and his army where assigned to build a castle in one tree filed place.Name of that place was unknown,but from day when Black Baron build his castle there,people called that place only with one name:
The Black Barons castle.
The castle itself was like Baron,evil and rich.Black Baron filled castle with many torchering mashines,gallows and dungeons where taking good 50% of whole castle.
The crusaders have concured Jerusalem,and Black Baron have torcherd Arabian people unthil the start of the concures of the Saladin.
When the Saladin got the title of the sultan,Black Baron was very old man.He didn't had a sucsecor,because of his own reasons.
Saladin and his army arrived to the castle of the Black Baron,crushing it into the pices,burning down his big catedral.Baron himself was killed in the battle,he wasn't captured like planed.Today,the ruins of his castle are laying around the center of this land.
Landscapes aroud are for different kinds of players/Ais.I think that this map woud be better for multiplayer battles.
If you have any suggestions how to make my map better,post it here.

Aside from a few spelling mistakes your english is great =D. Also for the map its very good for a first (unique too). For improvements as a suggestion im not sure if you wanted it this way, but the spots are unbalaced resource wise (top right for example as no height advantage/water and little resources compared to the others. If you meant to have an unbalanced map thats fine, but in terms of online play it would be abit unfair. Another thing is some map design improvements (your mad design is still excellent for a first). Basically you just need to add extra detail using the other tools (rocks/stones different grass tools/dunes etc) to make the map look more realistic. Check other maps or the Stronghold crusader maps that come with the game for some hints.
Don't get me wrong this is probably better than my first map. Welcome to SHH and goodluck, I hope you continue to make more maps =)
