Some nice mapmaking in such a small area. I got some inspiration from this little map, just looking at it! For example, I like the undead start area and the haste berry tree gave me some ideas.
The map is too packed to really comment about balance, however, it does look like the elves with their forestry might have an early edge in this highly open and forested area with a haste berry tree right in front of their door. Again, I might speak prematurely.

Well, AI does not seem to use this advantage, I can beat even emperor AI easily playing as orcs though both are equal. I hope 2 human players will enjoy more.

Seemed like some issues with quests double dipping on same city for spirit of war.
I think Elves have an advantage. There power nodes are undefended. The Call of the Wild spell allows for an early rush across map. They also get a compatible hero near home.
Not much new which is normal.

Fairly pretty map with decent balance without complete symetry.
