This map is almost like ES@Pilrims, but not quite. You start out with the normal set of villies, scout, but I have added: a dock, 3 trade cogs (to bring in more gold in the early stages of game play), and three fishing boats. Your island is fairly large and you have the 'close' resources but no bushes. There is little rush to get off the island, use up your resources then go is a good stradegy. The mainland is packed with resources!
Please send my any feedback you want after downloading so I can update this map. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
I have not played this map extensivly with the computers, but since you start out with a dock, they should be able to figure it out. Also if you are one who can make an AI script for this, please e-mail me.

Is this a snow map?
'Cause I don't know how to make random maps, and I want to create a snow version of ES@Pilgrims, which is supposed to be a KEWL representation of the discovery of Iceland, Greenland, or even Newfoundland by the Vikings;-)
And please answer soon!
