Description

Deep in the Eastern Mountains lies the territory of the Floating Rocks. For centuries, many tribes have fought for the control of this most sacred place. Today, the battle is yours!

When I stumbled upon the background image (see link below), I immediately imagined how great it would be to fight a Warlight battle in this setting. The background image was transferred to an SVG file using 'Vector Magic'.

EDIT - Thank you for fixing the border margin issue! As promised, 5 stars from me!

This map is both beautiful and challenging. I think the gameplay is quite good. Even the AI is halfway decent on it. The connecting bridges are a little awkward looking - but that doesn't really matter. I might make them a bit lighter in color to go with the more ethereal motif of the background, but a graphic designer I am not.

Being honest. This is another beautiful map and it is very well made. But I think there comes a point were aesthetics are so pleasing that its a distraction from gameplay. Furthermore its a problem in my opinion when aesthetics become better than gameplay. This map really pushes how far you can go with making a map beautiful. Though doesn't mean that its not everyone's taste, I haven't seen enough gameplay yet however.

That is a fair criticism. For this map, I really focussed on the aesthetics (my goal was to have a map that looks like a painting) and I may have lost sight of the gameplay.

Wow, I think everyone is a little harsh on the map being "too good looking." Seems kind of silly to me. Gameplay actually seems pretty original with the floating island idea. Great map overall.

Not a bad little map to play, and has some function to go with the lovely form. Loads of choke points and cramped islands make it interesting. Could use some superbonuses, maybe

Review by Fidget on 7/4/2016.
Beautiful! And fun, too! I like the combination of continuous regions, like continents, with single, key territories leading to the other islands. I just wish there were super-region bonuses.

Review by Ranek on 6/12/2015.
I have a question. did you do anything from this artwork by your own? to me it rather looks like an vectorized image with roughly implemented territories. I might be wrong, but in any case it is too much and doesnt support the gameplay, even though it looks nice, but this is just the picture...
