The Ruler of Savage Island has died. Three Stormlords want to have his island, and they don't plan to share it.

This is a small map made in only three hours. It's best for Multiplayer, but you can play it against the PC, too.

Version 1.1 now. Changed some minor things.

Ecthelion_21 You uploaded the BAK (backup) file, instead of the AHM file (the 'real' map).

Roger the Rampant You can just change the bak to ahm and it should work ok
Ecthelion_21 How can I change bak to ahm?
Simply by renaming the file (you might have that set that up somewhere, though,on some systems) and removing the 'bak' extension and replacing it with ahm.
This is my review:

Mappainting: Good use of terrain. Nothing stunning or impressive, but we cannot expect that with three hours of work. Despite that, the terrain looks pretty natural.

Balance: this can very tricky if you pick three players. Although interesting, a game can be decided by diplomacy if two players engage early enough and a third gets away decisively. It's been tried and played before, but in my experience, most people aren't that happy with these types of games.

The design from a balance perspective is very simple (symmetric), yet creative. Big city in the middle as a reward, which always leaves for interesting choices (diplomatically).

However, just from skimming the map, I am not sure about a couple of things:
- The Darkelf player does not start off with a Wizard tower.
- The Goblin player has easy access to a teleporter which brings that player to a lightly defended (only one hero!!) city that has major upgrades and is easily defendable.

This makes me think that some more time should have been spent on the map, and I wouldn't trust it for a game (yet), balancewise.
Your previous map was better, imo!

You're right. But my next map will be better.
