Nice map, except for the "religious power" bonus.
Seriously, 1000 troops bonus? It's way too big! Something like a 50 bonus (maximum!) would be more balanced...
Review by Saruman on 7/26/2013.
The religious power bonus is 1000 because taking the holy territories of the 4 religions is the purpose of the game. But you can modify it in settings if you want.
Besides, if you play with the official template (1 territory at the beginning), this bonus is difficult to take.

Religious power is now 50

Nice historical setting.
Review by Urfang on 7/26/2013.
The map is nice but the bonuses are awkward.
ultimate tactic on this map:
1. start with manual distribution
2. pick Rome, Constaninople, Jerusalem, Mecca
3. enjoy :)

So much lost potential, great map but horribly unbalanced. You cannot lose however you try.
