This is my map, which i've talked about for a while. Its been finished for a while now, i just misplaced my story, and had to type a new one.
Steven was fleeing, fleeing like there was a huge, terrible monster was chasing him. He was in the forest, running away from a party of Julk’kabro. They had seen him, and immediately took him as a threat. His blade was bloody, and his armour broken. He was close to toppling on the floor in exhaustion. His limbs ached with each step he took further. He thought of home. He thought of his wife, his children, and all those he was fighting for. His home was naught but a small village, with no more than 120 people. These people were in danger, and he had set out to find the Amada. They would help him.
He camped for the night, when he was sure the terrible beasts where long gone. He could hear wind, leaves, and his own steps by the time he stopped. He reached for his waterskin, and drunk a long gulp of water. The water may have been warm, but after 3-4 hours of non-stop running, he was desperate to clear his coarse throat. He layed on his bedroll, and slept an uneasy sleep.
The next morning, he woke early to get a good start. But he found himself impaired by his legs, which had now been slapped together in irons. His arms were free, but he found him self being pulled back down by a large brutish hand. The Julk’kabr had got him! He fell limp, and waited. The minutes felt like years as they crawled on by. The hours felt like decades as they crawled on by. He had almost fell asleep when someone attack the Julk’kabro. A woman leading the force roared a Gataa battle cry. She was from the army. She had came to save him, he thought. Her yellow troops took the Julk’kabro by surprise. They were cut down like lambs to the slaughter. The woman cut down Steven, and he scrambled upright.
He pleaded for her help, but when he was half way through of saying “..help me find my troops..” a band of blue troops appeard over the hill. Steven hugged the woman for finding them. Nothing mattered more than his troops. The woman and steven started talking, and they became quite fond of each other. They had to set up camp, and build a small fort, to protect from the opposing Amada, and the Julk’kabro.
It was built, and the yellow and blue troops blended together like a woven blanket. The Hilbr fo Ir’rohn, Hills of iron seemed perfect, the market needed fresh supplies of iron, for the huge demand of weapons. The Julk’kabro were nearly at the camp, and the Amada were breathing down their necks. Soon, the battle for the Hilbro would commence.
Julk’kabr – Monster
Julk’kabro – Monsters
Amada – Army
Hilbr fo Ir’rohn – Hills of iron
This map is a long long map. More than 10 years if i remember correctly. Any comments, criticism, or Questions would be greatly apprieciated.

Hi Shir Shpamalot,

To find out how to make your headings etc. in your DL description. Please see the DL template code link in the Saviour of Leguim Community Campaign thread in the map room. Once you know the codes for headings and such just uppdate your description and choose the HTML radio button when updating. That way your description will be treated as HTML instead of text. (BB code does not work in the DL section)
If you are not sure what to do then post a question in the Map design forum and I can help you out there :)
Yes, this will be an empty comment but,

This map has been out for 13 days, and i've only had Ericgolf comment about HTML on the main page. So, reviews? I recollect that BMC said he'd give me one.
I played this map tonight and had a really enjoyable game. This is just the sort of SH map I like. A good, "old fashioned", invasion scenario with economic goals :-)

Nice landscaping leading to interesting decisions about where to build your walls and towers and where to place your buildings. Also, not too tricky, either :).
If you like a good ecovasion you will enjoy this one. Nice one Shir Shpamalot.
