You start just as you would in a normal Black Forest map, with the same amount of resources as you get standard although you do get a base like in fortress mode (minus the barracks). Your objective is simple, kill the other players and win!
The difference: most normal units are not able to be created, instead the players must buy units like Charlemagne or Guy Josselyne, with each civilization even having their own unique units! Unit spawning can be anywhere on the map but here is a limit to 150 military units at any one time and if the 'Shah' unit with 1,000 HP is lost, you lose!
With around 2,300 triggers and the simple, easy-to-use interface in the game where clear instructions are given on how to play. The complexity of the map gives a more simple overall game. Fun for those who enjoy normal random map games or just something new, download it and have a look!
