This map was created in response to a request by Philodendron. The point is to have a map that focuses almost exclusively on naval combat.
>Extremely limited building space
>Elevation on the water
>Each person starts with a relic, 4 sea towers for defense and a converter galley (a ship that acts like a monk) to scout with
>On map sizes medium and up there is a bonus gold island in the center
>Each person should start with the same amount of gold (16 piles), stone (8 piles), food (6 bushes, 2 boar, 4 sheep), and roughly the same amount of wood
>Lots of fish
To play choose the following when setting up a match:
>The player lands may sometimes touch. To keep this from happening, I encourage you to select a larger map size than you normally would for the given number of players.
>Computer players will have trouble due to the lack of space to build on.
