I don't have much to say, other than that a seer is usually an old guy or girl.
Could you describe the items, or are you still working those out?
I assume that the items will take the place of spells in a standard RPG. That would be a possibly unique twist.

I'm still in the process of what items I will implement. The items will be books and such that you'll be able to use so you can do spells, such as summoning, killing everything around you within a certain range, etc.. I'm still trying to find an area in the map that would be suitable for placing the item system.

I have several suggestions for items; if you want to use, them go ahead.

Book of Freezing: Freezes nearby enemy units. (renders them unable to move or attack.) To accomplish this, you could give the units to player 12.
Book of Burning: Creates spider mines, or instantly kills nearby units. Depends on which you want, and fits your map better.
Book of Banishing: Moves nearby units to a remote island temporarily, leaving behind a portal, through which you could either enter to attack them, or run away. The gate will close eventually, and the units will return.

Currently, I have 2 books that work.

Book of the Dead - Summon a skeleton warrior
Book of Life - Sets your health to 75%.

Also, I have incredible ideas for Dark Battlefield 2. So I'll be using a spell book system and I'll definitely consider those books :)

Map seems nice Fierce, just looks a bit plain inside the cliff area.

Maybe try adding some mud or rocky terrain to it. Just spice it up a little.

Other then that map sounds like going to be fun.

Can't wait till its done ^^ good luck on it.

If all else fails, crowbar the fucker

Right now I'm having bad thoughts about the outcome of this map. I mean there isn't many quests, there isn't a lot of spells that can be used, and there isn't much that you can do.

I may restart this map and make my ideas from what was going to be the next map and change it into this.

I have restarted the map and so far I have:

Progress: 80%

Unit Placements
Progress: 85%

Progress: 1%
