Once upon a time long ago there was a peaceful landes and the chilren was in the glorys playing with the other childrens but there was rumors going around to the other childrens kingdoms were starting to fight amoung them selves then the new kingdoms arrived to take there lands so the evil forces decided to take the lands for them selves So the kingdom that came to the lands decided to send word to other kingdom to send for help are you brave enough to take on the forces. hope you enjoy the map i might get the other age of wonders sm next weeek or next weeek for i can play the sm
Definately one of your best, so far!
What I liked was the border-area of the Lady of Light where the snow nicely changes into ice and then there is water! Nice details, in that area.
Overall, the map looks filled (not stunningly creative) but this is what really stood out as bad:
- The Mountain ranges are ugly. Never EVER put mountains like you do in 49:44:0. It looks like the game is crashing.
For the rest, my tip would be:
- Use elevations. There are two buttons you can click in the editor. They are between the Erasor and the button that lets you shift between underground and surface.
I was worried if the map would be fun to play, because the starting armies are that big, and the player would not be able to do anything because of upkeep problems, but I see you have corrected for that nicely.
Well, I hope your next map will be one with Shadow Magic! Don't forget to use the v1.4 patch and you'll have 5 times as much material to work with as you do now.
It will also be interesting for you to use the Random Map Generator. It fills in maps pretty easily and as a mapmaker you can adapt them (I used to do that as well). It saves a lot of time if you don't like to spend over 3 months on one single map.

No real issues with playability, but most scripted/event driven games don't.
I only played one of the races, the Archon but it seemed to have a fair chance.
What I liked most was the large amount of mana and money. So the game could progress quickly. That was probably the best part of it.
Map Design: 3
The division of space was nice, but not practicular nicely done.
