While a fascinating site to gaze upon, 'Mei Li Shi Zhen' (Chinese for Beautiful Town) is little more than the author mentioned in the scenario, a city template. I feel that this is more at home at the utility section rather than here.
There is nothing you can do on the map except explore with an archer, which is immensely boring as the archer cannot walk very fast or see very far. There was also a severe lack of happenings in the scenario. Basically, nothing happens.
Since nothing can happen to you, there is no risk of dying. But there is little more to comment about in this aspect.
I must commend the author that the idea of a city template is excellent, and the designs in the map is up to par. Well done in this area.
A truly astonishing city to look at (although huge). Although a little more eyecandy can be used.
The instructions were clear and simple enough, yet there was not a shred of a story in the scenario. So, a flat 3.
- Excellent map design
- Boring to play, good to look at.
Final Thoughts: A good template for people who are just starting with scenario design. If you are up for some gaming, then this is not the scenario for you.
