The Lake of Garahil, called after the ancient heros Garahil who killed the dragon that used to settle in the area, is a huge lake covered by a rich region. From the highest tower of the golden castle of the Imperial City, Emperor Vincesus has a magnificient view over his town, its harbour and the lake. Many minor and rival lords have settled and built their strongholds in the area, and often fight for the control of natural resources, such as the southern gold and silver mines. Taking advantage of this big and rich lake, scouts also report that dangerous pirates have established their camp next to the Lake.
I'm glad you enjoyed the map ; making it was both instructive and fun for me. I think I could do better now, but making it definitely helped me. I'm sorry for the number of eagles, but I put them at the end and, as I often play without sound, I didn't realize how boring it could be. I tried to make the map beautiful, but maybe it was sometimes too repetitive or too simple. It might be playable after a few adjustments. And by the way, I added a castle in the snow because I really wanted to see whether an asian castle in the snow looked good. I think so.
Anyway, thanks again for the review and the comments !
