|A map designed for several players featuring multiple super bonuses. There is one main island and several smaller ones surrounding it. Not including the main island, each island is it's own super bonus (or bonus, for 2 of the smaller islands). The main island contains two super bonuses and several normal bonuses.
All the super bonus titles are the titles of books or series (Or if there is not a super bonus, the bonus title). In the super bonuses, the smaller bonuses represent aspects of each series or book. The books represent several different genres, ranging from classics to modern books. However, this information is not requiered to play or understand the map in any way.
All feedback is appreciated, as this is my first attempt at making a large, non linear, map.

Tons of fun to play on, takes some time to get your bearings, but after that it's awesome, love the names of the territories.

Fixed in the latest update a few weeks ago (1.1). Thanks for this feedback, along with other feedback I've gotten via the feedback button.

When you have another person to take the blows for you, you can really take out a ton of units. I had almost 4000 armies at the end of it.

I'm not sure how I missed out rating and reviewing this map - I've long been aware of it and played it a while back. So here goes...
It's a great map. The landmasses are varied and contain numerous chokepoints, especially in the north. There are also a variety of bonuses, so you can go for the big ones or accumulate the little ones. The borders are a little sloppy, but I don't really care about that unless that prevent you from telling what is adjacent to what - which they do not.
The names and regions are a lot of fun. You can look for your favorite characters as you play. You can even argue about which characters/series should have been included or excluded.

Its just shit, anyone who has a good spawn like in the lord of the rings area instantly wins because of all the resources there.
