Long has Iceina reigned in her ice world. Too long according to the fire wizard Volcana. She has sent an expedition to kill the Ice Queen whose empire is being torn to pieces in the Goblin Wars. To stop her fiery lands being overcome with ice, Volcana created a ring of fire to surround her lands. In turn, Iceina called up violent storms to encompass Volcana and to imprision her fiery influence. So now, the only way for the two master wizards to decide the future of the land is to travel underground. Here however, Fangir reigns and he doesn't intend to have imposters in his caverns.
In this game you can play either as Iceina and her frostlings or as the invaders, Volcana and her tigrans. Fangir and his dwarfs seperate the two warring factions and is controlled by the AI.
All the heros are customized as well as about half of the items. The story is strong enough to invlove the players but not so strong as to take over the entire game.
So, there we go, to find out more, just press the download button. I hope you have as much fun playing it as I have had making it.
:)

This is a fun map. I played as the Frostlings and it was great fun defending a watchtower against the goblin hordes in the beginning.
The frostlings may not be the best of the offensive but they sure can defend.
Playing as the Tigrans should be a very different experience, so the map has some replay value.

Balance: 2
Seems balanced, but I guess playing both sides will be needed to decide.
I finished the map in 38 days and there was still quite a lot to explore, so the path between the Frostlings and Tigrans could have been less linear.
EDIT: The AI has much harder time as Frostlings than as Tigrans.

Lots of things to explore. All heroes and many items are custom made.

Map Design: 3
Overlnand looks very nice, but most of the underground feels rather contrived.

Story/Instructions: 4

All in all a fun and solid map.
