This is the map of Beleriand and lands to the north, as described in the Silmarillion of J.R.R.Tolkien.

Nice to see a different Tolkien universe map than the usual LoR one.
I do note that superbonuses are a bit unbalanced (Gondolin - 3 for 23 territories (0.13), Falas 4/17 (0.24) Hithlund - 12/37 (0.32), etc). Also, when someone is setting up scenarios, he/she should probably increase the Angband bonuses considerably to make it faithful to the story.
Loved the little dragon and spider illustrations too. :)
All in all, great map. I will probably set up a few levels after I've played it a few more times.
Good job.

Thank you very much for your review!
I used different ratios for bonuses consciously. I set the "Realm of Gondolin" bonus only to 3 because it almost completely coincides with the "Vale of Tumladen" superbonus (the city of Gondolin) that is worth 4 armies. If you count both superbonuses, the ratio is 7/23 (0.3). And I deliberately lowered the bonus values for Falas, because it turned out to be overpowered. If it is united, it is very easy to defend it. And it is relatively easy to unite Falas, since it is one of the smallest superbonuses.

An epic map, much better than the old Beleriand map. Great design. Map looks awesome and is very nice to play in. Good for diplomacy games and FFA games. Very good job

Very nice map, and great aesthetics, but I think the Ered Gorgoroth region is a little too large, and I do wish that the green elves of Ossiriand were included. Other than that, great map, and fun for recreating the wars of the First Age.

This is quite a good map to play, a fair amount of strategy is involved.
You play as the underdog in terms of you and your allies gaining armies per turn for a considerable number of turns.
Put your hero to good use!

Fun and relatively quick to play. It also helps visualize events from The Silmarillion
