This is a map of Skyrim containing all of the various forests and mountain ranges, islands and rivers.
I originally made this for a 3v3 fixed force/DM map that I completed, which was met with mixed reviews from those who played it, sadly those that disliked it did so due to the DM aspect of the game. I did plan on making it more like a LotR Fixed Force map but decided against this as I made it in the original way to be different from those types of maps. I also intended and still might make a single player RPG out of it, essentially making a Skyrim for AoC game.
Sorry I havn't uploaded a mapshot to display along side this text. But I'll be damned if i can get them to appear in good quality.
I am a fanatic Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim fan, so when I saw this in the New Files list recently, I squealed like an over-excited, stereotypical, animated Japanese schoolgirl.
This blank map of Skyrim is based on the actual map found within the game itself.
This map is very useful for those who want to create their own Skyrim-related RPG on AoK (you should credit this creator if you do).
The players are named after the actual Skyrim cities/towns from the game, which I thought was a brilliant touch.
Compared to an official map of Skyrim from Bethesda, there is a cunning likeness and similarity between the two.
Being a fan of the game, I recognise key and memorable locations almost immediately when looking at the file.
The only thing that could make this map better is to add in the cities from the game, rather than leaving them to the AI to build, of course the problem with that is the space available to the designer on the map. If it was created with Age of Empires: Forgotten Empires, the creator could actually add in dragon units for the player to fight (yes, AOE:FE allows you to place dragons in scenario editing).
An amazing map! Well done! :)
Now I have several knees that require arrows.
Oh, and since you didn't provide a map shot, I took the trouble of doing it, so more people may check it out. :)

Thank you very much for your reply and review, I myself am a huge Skyrim fan which is what inspired me to make this map. Also thank you for adding a mapshot too, I appreciate this alot.
As for the addition of the cities, I do actually have a Skyrim RPG (single player) that im working on slowly between other projects with cities/towns and a few other important places built, aswell as people from Skyrim itself (named).
