The Jerk
File Details
Ruleset: TS Standard Rules
Map Size: Large
Playable Races: Some
Surface Levels: 3
Difficulty: Hard
After a thousand years of peace the humans betrayed the trust of their former neighbours, the halflings, and assassinated their king to expand their territory. The other seven kingdoms decided to bring the human leader to justice at the elven high council.There, the decision to ban the Humans to a small island cluster isolated north of the mainland was made based on a suggestion made by the Highmen high priests. The highmen took upon themselves to guard the Humans and inhabited the outer islands themselves connecting them with magic teleporters. The humans never accepted their fate and begun to dig their way out from their island prison. After a while they encountered races never seen on the surface of the earth before. Evil races, who soon learned of the riches of the world above. Craving gold and mana they started raiding the surface each time killing hundreds of innocent people. Now, the other races started to question the Highmens decision as well as their authority. Seeing that the Highmen couldn´t withstand the opposition the leaders of the seven kingdoms saw an opportunity to sieze the control of the world themselves setting off a war where neighbours attacked neighbours and friends atacked friends.

===========================================================

All races are playable except Highmen. This is a pretty tough map with lots of independants and heavily defended crypts and dungeons. Enjoy!

This is the best map out there for mplay, even good for single player.
The caves are a real pain in the ass, so it keeps your leader in check for a long time. Very difficult from day1, but not impossible. Besides your human enemies you have the highmen to worry about (and trust me they get really tough.)
The only downfall is how long it takes the highmen to finish their turn. There is a map floating out there which changed the highmen down to knight instead of emp. It speeds the gameplay up alot. Hopefully Jerk doesnt mind to much that we did that =]

This is one of, if not the best map I've played in PBEM. I'm currently in 2 PBEM's on this map. One has passed day 60 and the winner is still not decided.
I like the way it's made with totally different starting positions but still very balanced. And the underground is really interessting even without terrain inversion.

You play and play and play!!
What can I say.
Whether against man or Ai
The fun I cannot deny

Balance: 5
Each side is certainly fair
Though at first glance its not quite square
But like 'Rely upon Thy Strength'
The balance evens out at length

Creativity: 5
To create what I mention above
is truly a labour of love

Map Design: 5
Tunnels intricate and dire
Each race in trouble is mired
The design is tested and true
Perfected to a marvelous hue


Story/Instructions: 5
The story not long, boring or thick
Moves us to play relatively Quick

Great Map by a master!!

Definitely my favourite user-made map other than my own. Absolute masterpiece, the only downfall is that the AI takes such a long time to end their turn even on modern operating systems lol. Oh well, still great.
