Story: The followers of Takhisis have been corrupting the good Dragon eggs to produce the Draconians, and the 3rd Dragon War is about to break out. The heroes of the lance must find the Dragon Lances that will aid them in defeating the Dragon Armies of Takhisis, and her Dragon Highlord Ariakis.

Info:Designed to be a four player map - but i have play tested it as single player too. Single Player is Very Hard, Four Player should be Moderately difficult.

The elves, humans, dwarves, and kender(halflings) work together to stop the Draconians, and the Queen of Darkness Takhisis. As the name suggests their are lots of Dragons, and Cannons are disabled to make things abit tougher and more inline with the books.

I havent done any scripting, but am open to suggestions/ advice on that front.

For Dragon Lance fans, i have tried to stick closely to the books/ D&D modules but was limited by the scale of the game, but again am open to constructive criticism.

Playability: 5
A good challenging map with some interesting areas.

Balance: 4
AI enemies given enough of advantage to present a good challenge for 1 player.

Creativity: 4
Liked the Allies approach to game of the good players against the evil. Good to disable highest level except for Draconian cities, makes them a critial resource to capture.

Map Design: 5
A nice varied map with good undergound and varied main level. Interesting trapsorters and some goodies.

Story/Instructions: 3
I am not familiar with stories map is from so some more background and story might be good. Certainly some background descriptions on wizards and heroes would be nice. Maybe some simple events to spawn the heroes.

Additional Comments: I played it single player as the halfings with the neutral wizard. This made it easier to coop the Draconians.
