Long time ago this land was peaceful and ruled by two kingdoms:the kingdom of URUK and the kingdom of ASSUR-UBALIT. They lived in harmony with the dragons who were the first inhabitants. But then they were invaded by Elves, Orcs , Dwarves and Goblins. And at sea by some kind of Vikings and seamonsters.
After a while there was a final battle between the armies of Ninurta and Nagash near the city SHU DURUL who ended undetermined. The city was destroyed and they retreated. With their last magical action the Dragons banished Nagash and Ninurta, and spoke a curse on the city of SHU DURUL to never rebuild the city. But it seems that the remains of their armies or followers are still somewhere in the land.
It is said that there is still hidden somewhere the crown of UR-AKSHAK. That is the name of the land given by the Dragons. Those who find this crown and crowned himself will find powerful allies but also claims the supremacy of the land. This means war with all who do not recognize you.
Meanwhile the orcs of WAZZOD GROTSTUF are invading the land
Very good map. I've played about 65 turns and finished without destroying all enemies (my Elves have alliance with Goblins, peace with Dwarves -- and Humans can do nothing to me). Opponents were very agressive -- it was not so easy even make peace with one of them.
I hope everything is OK :)
May be some heroes descriptions and stories about some places could improve the total impression :)

May be not so many cities and units would be more interesting
