The map is based on lands that have been battled upon, blood has been spilt and castles have fallen, this leaves the lands with a messy like texture.
Where some territories may be larger than others, the smaller territories may make up for it with a height advantage.
Each territory has it's own defending advantages and disadvantages.
5 Players can play the map. There are plenty of villages to take control of also. The villages are key to the survival of your castle. If an enemy were to take control of a village near you, it will allow him to build siege equipment near you.
Be weary of what you, teammates and opponents control...
