The land of Erathia v.1.0
This is my first AoW II map and I have been working quite a lot on it. I haven’t come up with a story yet, but it hope it will come when I update the map. I have been putting a lot of time trying to do the environments look as realistic as they could, but I must say I am no expert in the AoW II Editor.

There are 8 players on map in many different locations on the map, and every wizard have some towns with their starting race so all the players can get a good start and start building their empires. This map isn’t hard and there is not much enemies running around on the map, I maybe change this in a future update.

This is the first version of the map, and I haven’t played it with all the races so I don’t now how well balanced it is but I think its not any major differences. There can be some minor bugs, like spelling mistakes (I’m from Sweden so..) . It is still much to do on the map but send please send me your comments how to improve the map try to do that as fast as possible.

I hope you all will enjoy it.

I played this map as a SP map, taking the Archon side. It was fun up to the point that I had beaten 3 other sides, after which it bogged down and became a chore to manage.

Balance: 3
I set the enemy AIs to Emperor and it was challenging to keep expanding in the beginning. A teleport ring allows the AI to put pressure close to the Archon home. The Dwarven side is very defensible (might be too good for MP, but that is just a guess) and it took a while to dig them out.

Creativity: 4
The designer took a basic idea and did it well. The AI was able to use the terrain to its advantage and the teleport ring helped the AI a lot. The underground was fun and was not an endless maze.

Map Design: 4
This was a well laid out and attractive map.

Story/Instructions: 3
There was a brief background that set the story adequately. This is a battle map, not a story map.

Additional Comments:

This is a good map to play SP if the AI is set high depending on player skill. I'd recommend King as a minimum except for new players. The map is generous with resources. This is a good map to get to know how to play a race.

I must congratulate you on an excellent map. This is simply the best map that I have found here. I hope you make more. I can't wait to see the next one.
Keep up the good work.

Fun battle map that should have some replayability.

Balance: 4
Looks balanced enough to me.

Creativity: 3
Some new names for Wizards and towns. No custom heroes or items that I could see.

Map Design: 4
Beautiful map. Lots of sea makes it difficult for the AI, but a ring of Teleports helps.

Story/Instructions: 1
No story at all.

Additional Comments:
I had expected a map resembling the land of Erathia from the (Heroes of) Might and Magic games.
