There are only a few trees on this map and almost no food but gold and stone are plentiful. There are also lots of wolves. This map may take some getting used to and not everyone will enjoy it. The economic game is reversed in that stone will be cheap while food and wood are extremely expensive (I\'ve seen wood as high as 800). You start with a market and 2 trade carts as well as the standard villagers and town center. Your scout is replaced with a camel.
Note that computer players do poorly on this map (presumably because of the lack of wood) so this is mainly a multi-player map (unless someone can come up with an AI script for it...).
Added 21-Jan-2002 (version 2):
- Added an oasis in the center of the map. Here you will find more trees and some fish.
