This map was fun, SP with me playing Humans.
The map wasn't totally balanced, but for SP it is probably better that way.
A few neat touches, like the divine storm and fireworks on a heavily guarded exploration site. Custom heroes and items. Unusual defending stacks on independent cities and some resources.
Map Design: 4
Managed to fit quite a few different terrain types in, without it seeming too contrived. Maybe too many forests for my liking.
Extremely limited initial story, but there were lots of signs and popups, which really gave the impression of a shire that had been lived in. Spelling was excellent. Also a variety of different speaking styles for different races. Pity the intitial story wasn't more sophisticated.
This map had a lot of care and attention to detail put into it, and I enjoyed it. It's wasn't enormously challenging, but because it was fairly small and straightforward (being surface only) it didn't become boring.
