Barrow Downs, A field with mounds around the center and a collection of barrow wights and lairs around to avoid rushing and force players to expand upwards without making a mountain choke point. There are a few barrow wights around and some indestructible lairs to keep the middle a 'no mans land' area. Best probably for human on human, but the AI put up a good fight -(its just the indestructible lairs that makes the AI a bit vulnerable in this, but i haven't tried hard+ yet so it might be fine. I can't script YET, but i like to publish my maps looking as real as possible so my texturing is pretty nice i think- no obvious lazy lines like some of the 'lesser' maps on this site. I BLEND!!!
