The Tavern can be found in the middle of the map and is flanked by two guarding golems. Don´t break the ports laws or you might get into trouble. When killed they drop a Rune of lesser healing as well as a weak permanent item

There are two shops placed on the Gold Port. Simply buying stuff wont work out that easily since there are other angry customers who waited for the same items for days.

The greed for gold draws even the wildest races to the port. The Centaurs freshly opened a Goblin Laboratory franchise and hope to make some good bucks

There are 6 Goldmines in total with different attributes. The mine that lies closest to the base is safely guarded and only holds 8000 gold. The further ones are more exposed and are not clearly assigned to specific players

The two basic Lordaredon Summer Mercenarycamps allow players to add neutral units to their armies.

When you fight well at this camp one of the dragons might be impressed and switch sides

Parks can be pretty dangerous at night. These thieves linger in the shadows to rob unsuspecting victims but once defeated their strong comradeship can be contagious

    Chill guys, he specifically wrote it's WiP. If you're so curious to see how the map looks and performs, download it.

    In this case, WiPs in Maps are somewhat legal since they're contest related.

    Solid map & I love the description you used! I feel pretty inspired :) Also, you should check your Mercenary Camp screenshot and fix it :p

    GL in the contest! :D

    Thanks, I fixed the screenshot.

    Also made a hotfix because apparently having the camera boundary equal with the map boundary might cause game crashes when using flying units

    Nice map! Extremly beatiful looking. But i think you should polish it. 1 golem at center with healing rune is too op, for example. If you do this, map will be at ladder maps level. But even now 5/5

    While I dont like the 2 merchants and tavern aligned in 1 main paths, plus AOW spot exposed, And gob lab cliff shape.

    raiting 5/5

    Yeah well there is this one controversial issue. I personally dont see how using children as critters brings anything positive, and while hildren can apparently be killed in the campaign, I would bet a fair amount of money that they will be invulnerable, just like they are in wow.

    Moving on, I find nothing else to dislike. My personal opinion is that the neutral houses do not fit into the rest of the wc3 scale and that's why I use them sparingly on my maps. But the small village "scenes" are created with great attention to detail. Also good to stack the vision blockers inside the houses.

    Regarding gameplay:
    -The map uses mostly standard creeps, and creepcamps and items are good.
    -I dont quite understand the purpose of the goblin zeppelins? Are they just for show?
    -Rune of spirit link is something I'm quite interested to see.
    -Very interesting creepspot with the single lvl 6 golems in the mid. I'm undecided how the runes of healing will impact the gameplay here.
    -Runes of rebirth, well, I can imagine many situations where I'd rather destroy the rune than use it. But that's imho a general flaw of the rune. In fact, the use of the rune here looks good to me.

    Overall a very good map. Approved.

    Looks amazing and plays even better! (which is surprising for a city tileset)
