This multiplayer map contains all races. Every race is playable and has equal start conditions in comparissment to the others.
But unfortunately all signs are written in german. I did't had the time to translate it!
What you need to know is that there are seven unique items hidden on the map. Try to find them but beware!
Hope you will have the same fun through long nights we had.
It doesn't matter really that the map's introduction and signs are in German. But actually, I was able to guess some of what they say as I have taken some elementary German many years ago. :) This a great map to play. It's quite challanging, but not too hard for the casual player. Very nicely drawn map with nice features like passes, and )IMHO) interesting underground layout. There are also some very interesting heros running around on the map.
This map seems very suitable for multiplayer. The forces on this map are well balanced.

Well, as a German I had no problems reading this map or its instructions. Not a great story, but an impressive detailed and great map.
Although all races seem to be playable (tested 5 of 12), the game is not really balanced for a single player. Some races are much easier to play than others.
The idea of the really strong independent heroes coming here and there adds to the fun for experienced players but may be annoying for beginners.
As you are tempted to play the map for different races, the replayability is great. Not a must-play for players who like detailed stories, but definitely not a map that disappoints in any way. Better than many of the maps which come with the retail AoW.
Congtas to the map-designer - an impressive piece of work.
