This is a map dedicated for Multiplayer games. I will not spoil the multiplayer experience by guiding you with a story but will let you and your fellow players come up with the story as the game progresses. If you are playing the final version it will be very well balanced. Good Luck!
And Now a Commercial Break!
Coming this fall to a computer near you: The Search for Deadskull Keep. Take on the role of a young lone Elf trying to save his people from the Shadow that is threatening to devour the world, cover it in darkness and turn it into a playground for the Undead!
This is a very playable map. The design, with lots of free-roaming critters, allows for some quick army assembly, while not being too much to unbalance or make it easy.
The balance shines. Good choice of races. The Dwarf elite unit, the Steam Cannon, is not a fave, but the race is strong and competitive enough.
All the races are good and the design favors no one in particular.
Not sure what to say here - no story to speak of. But I DON'T CARE! This is one hell of a fun map - I have both an Email game and a solo game going and, as different races in each, find them both amazing.
Map Design: 5
The design is elegant enough and never seems inappropriate.
