The Library
Created by normalice

Map Info:

Similar in drops and creeps to my other FFA map "Power Trip," but without the pesky ledges.

Features:

two observatories, two shops, one market place. 4 taverns. 12 total expansion mines. 5 red creep camps, 28 orange, 14 green camps. So, lots of creeping...

Drops within the library are mostly tomes and scrolls - because it's a library! All creeps in the library have a chance of dropping something. Those of level 5 or less have a 20% chance of dropping a level 1 power up, and a 10% chance of dropping a level two tome (minus a tome of experience). Anything greater than level 5 has a 100% chance of dropping a scroll (or book of the dead, or staff of silence) and a 20% chance of dropping a tome of experience combined with a 50% chance of dropping a tome of knowledge. High level creeps in red creep camps drop a tome of power. Outside the library the drops are normal.

Screenshots:

Author's notes:
barrens/undeground tileset

Updates:
fixed the 'floating bookshelves'
added some fog, just because..
-
modified drop tables. Far fewer tomes of power, and yellow camps in the library can now drop more than 'just scrolls'.
-
added more room at the center mines so humans/orc could build an expo..

Other work:

    Terrain

    Terrain is awesome, mixed terrain, but at some point it is mostly flat (Out of the Library).

    I really loved this map as the creeps in the library drops tomes, it's like when they're reading books then you've just attacked. I loved it. 5/5. VOTE FOR APPROVAL.:thumbs_up:
