A 5 player M-sized map originally created by Ziggurat Mason a.k.a. BING XI LAO.
Rebalanced for multiplayer LAN, it was designed to be played as a FFA.
This map uses a lot of new decorations which are only available in AoW Evolved and Ziggurat Engine Mod.
As the map is balanced for LAN over PBEM, it is recommended to play the map with AoW Evolved installed.
Lore: Heulax is a steamy plateau filled with mists, marshes, and lakes, some of which boil with the heat of sub-merged Day-Vanes. In these conditions certain spices grow which can be found nowhere else, spices which can grant new coils of life in a potion, or allow the mind to pierce the veil of fate and predict the future. Even the Lizardmen which make Heulax their home do not fully understand the powers of the spice.
While Heulax holds many crops, fish-farms and mines, it is the spice to which it owes its wealth. The merchants and rulers of far-off lands have long sent their emissaries to trade gold, worked goods, fine cattle, arcane artifacts, and anything for the strange plants of Heulax. In time this lure grew too strong for peace, and now Heulax has been invaded by five foreign armies, while its native Lizardmen scatter in disarray.
In the centre of Heulax lies a place where molten rock bubbles to the surface, surrounded with hard rock and caves. This is a place of considerable raw arcane power, and seizing it is the key to conquering the rest of Heulax.
