My first map - It uses the INSS bonus system, similar to Biomes of America & Elitist Africa. There aren't enough maps that use this unique and creative bonus structure so I'm hoping to change that, since they are some of my favorite games to play.
Huge thanks to Lionheart for the help and inspiration and to Fizzer for reverting the change that prevented duplicate bonuses.
Much appreciation also for the people that let me bounce ideas off of them and helped test templates - MGO, Octane, Xeno, Checkmqte, Meldarion, Lionheart, AI, and others.
The settlements are a bit overpowered, especially the 7 bonus in the center, however it is a beautiful map artistically, and considering this is PapaMarsh's first map, it is extremely impressive how well of a job he's done. The small twist on INSS does make for some moderately different picking strategies compared to normal INSS (Most notably the 7 bonus), so I do think it will make an interesting addition to a rapidly growing selection of maps like it. Due to the size of the map, I think this would work best as a 3v3 if you wanted to make it play its best strategically. Overall, 5/5, this map already looks like Lionheart quality, and this is only PapaMarsh's FIRST map. Can't wait to see what beautiful looking maps come from him in the future!
