Playable races:(8) Dwarves,Dark-Elves, High-Men, Undead,Frostlings, Humans, Azracs, Orcs, Halflings. Easiest to
hardest. This is a hard map for experienced players. Many roving bands of vicious independents and well defended cities fill the
landscape. The Orcs start with no cities and are raiders.
A very, very interesting map, with questionable balance but a high fun factor. Difficult! Map is beautiful, with heavy inversion effects. Story is very present. Orcs are a welcome change of pace, until your wave of units dies *g* Overall grade is a 4.2, with an Outstanding Achievement in Map Design supplementary award. P:4 B:3 C:5 M:5 S:5

A very challanging map. The countryside is harsh! But there's the fun. There is no lack of action in this one.

I like the look of this and gave it go by pbem with me as Azracs and a friend as Dwarves. I won on about turn 20 before getting anywhere near the Dwarves, because I captured all the required cities. So I think the objectives for the Azracs are far too easy. This is a pity as we were having a good time! The Dwarves had no chance as they need 3 of the same cities.

The author updated this map on 8/12/01. A few typos were corrected and the strength of the Azracs was slightly reduced.
