Heh, took awhile to get submitted, but Zen finally fixed it for me. Go AOW2H. Anyway. This map is my first, i have learned alot from it, and any constructive criticism can be sent to email@example.com.
To find yourself victorious in this scenario, you must not only demonstrate military prowess, but diplomatic finesse as well. Being that the valley is so small, Suprises will always abound. Scripted events occur, as well as a beautiful landscape to roam around in. Playable races include Dwarf, Elf, Human, Goblin, Orc, and Frostling.
I think this map is pretty good for MP play. I played as single and it was quite easy to over run the AI. I think it might be different when humans play it. :) I did think that maybe some of the cities should have been more structures prebuilt since this is a small map.
No apparent advantages seen on each side. I looked at the graphs for this. My judgement is that it's good.
It's a simple slug-out map.

It's a little plain. I thought it could use a tad bit more filling up to make it look more interesting.
Story/Instructions: 1 (1.5)
Not much story in the game.
Ok a few comments. First thing I noticed was that signs were used, maybe you should consider using message events instead? Imagine if the first couple of rounds, the player get messages warning about the rival wizards and dangers in the land around them. It will certainly add a bit to story element even if you don't want to write a real complex storyline, since this is a small map. :)
Pretty good for a first map. Keep making and I'm sure your mapcraft will soon improve. And have fun!
