This map creates a ring of islands (an atoll), which are usually and randomly connected by land and/or shallows. Plenty of resources are placed on the map, including a large amount of fish, but land is somewhat sparce. Lots of water on this map can lead to large naval battles, but most of the time the islands are connected, so players can expect land invasions also. The shallows can make walling off difficult. Roads and shallows will connect members of the same team.
