When a volcanic disaster destroyed its western province the human empire of Serpentis collapsed, and a war started between the twelve factions to take control of its lands.
All races are playable and start with a 3 hex city (I've registered the map as a SP one, but just because it's rather huge for a MP map) with some more friendly towns nearby to take. Leaders and some heroes have been customized and spheres chosen according to where their people start.
Map is rather rich, with a lot of towns (but not many 4 hex cities) and several strange and cool places with monsters and loot for adventurous people, including two big underground labyrunths with a lot of teleporters (while the surface is more classical, without a lot of instant transportation available) and some well hidden cities.
The few map texts are in french (sorry I'm too lazy to translate all) but as it's a FFA map scenario background isn't that important.
To resume all races want to crush the others and conquer the world. :)
I must say this is a fun map 2 play. I spent many hours playing the hard version as a single player map. It's a bit slow waiting for the other races to move in classic mode, but not too bad. Much exploring to do (which I enjoy), but wish there had been more "secret" locations. Gave it a 2 for story because i don't understand french.
