The Kingdom of Astoria. A beautiful city surrounded by high walls and adorned with a grand palace noted for it's royal gardens. Water ways pass through the city and empty out into the sea. The surrounding countryside is vast. A port town welcomes new visitors with it's rich market place and industries. Humble farmers work constantly to bring in the season's harvest. Lumberjack's work tirelessly in a deep forest. Miner's set up camp within a massive mountain to mine it's precious ore. A vast wilderness surrounds the Kingdom with mountain ranges, swampland, and dense forests to explore. Within the capital city, soldiers train hard to become Astoria's finest.
This map took MANNNNNNNY hours (months) to complete. I consider it a masterpiece as far as eye-candy maps go. Every tree and resource was carefully placed to give this map absolute majesty. Every villager is tasked to work and the Kingdom is constantly bustling with activity. You could sit back and watch for hours! Every resource on the map, including wild game respawns to give this map a continuous stream of life. Also, many eye-candy tricks (new and old) were used to further give the Kingdom of Astoria a unique landscape. Also many complicated triggers were used to give units unique tasks that are very entertaining to observe.
I do not mind anyone using elements from this map to enhance their own. I only ask that you please comment and give me feed back. I am looking forward to hearing what everyone thinks of my masterpiece.
it true, we can spend a lot of time to explore this wonderfull map. Ayoye! If all the designers could spend time and efforts like this (me included) to improve the maps in their scenarios...

I have to agree with all these people.Great job!But i'm not sure about something not too important: Most of the buildings have their standard names.If you spend just little time to change some of the names,then your map will be a masterpiece.
Just an opinion.
