This is a very versatile map. It has been designed as a multiplayer map for two to six people. If you wish to stick to the storyline the the map must be played as a Two Player map, Orc versus Goblin. Use these settings for the other races:
Azracs and Lizards set to CPU King
Dwarves, Halflings, Elves and Humans, set to CPU Emperor
Leaders on or off
This should be very challenging! This is also the only pattern which gives message events.
If you wish you can abondon the storyline. You can play Azracs versus Lizard and set all other races to CPU Emperor. Or You can play four people and play Dwarves vs Halflings vs Elves vs Humans; again use CPU Emperor for all other races. Finally, you can Play six people; Set Orcs and Goblins to Emperor and go.
Aways use alliance Off Explore On and Leaders Off or On.
This map may at some point be used as a campaign map for Tides of Golgatha, if I ever do an evil scenario set.
As always, have fun, make whatever hanges to the map that are fun, and email comments to Arcticw459@AOL.com. Thanks Arctic Wolf.
As with all the maps by Arctic Wolf, the terrain is simply stunning. He/She is able to twist the map editor to create sceneries that nobody else does. On this map each starting race had its own unique landscape. The Elves had a magical looking mushroom filled area, the Dwarves boulder strewn steppes, the Hobbits had barrow laden fields, and the Humans, had a steppe forest, with grass under the forest instead of steppe. I wish I knew how this is done.
The map played extremely well in each variation Arctic lists. I have a feeling that the story is one you either love or hate. I guess I didn't appreciate the story as much as the map, but kudos for doing something that different from you other work.
