2. MAPS DESCRIPTION
A modifyed Deccan map. The misteries of Africa always intrigued the European explorers. Try to conquer this region of dense forests, no trade routes nor natives. While you explore the map, beware with the dangerous lions that will attack anyone that ventures in this land. You start with an extra elephant that have explorer purposes. Hidden in the mighty jungle you'll find plenty of food, wood and gold, along with many challenges. Sometimes a single river will appear, sometimes not.
2.2. DE LA PLATA
A modifyed Indochina map. The Basin of the La Plata river is the fifth biggest one in the world. It was historically the chockpoint of many battles during the conquest of South America, such like Portuguese and Spanish, natives, jesuits and conquerors, or later by the nations that emerged in the region, such as Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay or Paraguay. The map has many cows and resources spread around. No treasures in land, but many in sea (I had to configure the map to fit as an Asian one to it work properly), a single short trade route that crosses the river in the Northwest, with one or two sockets, just one shallow connection, at least two natives (Jesuit or Tupi) and all players start walled in.
2.3. EL DORADO
A modifyed Deccan map. The mythic city of Eldorado was finally found and lies right in front of you. As well as in front of your opponent. Many gold mines and crates are in the central plateau, along with huntables and bushes. You'll need these riches to keep your colony running, but they're guarded by some hostile natives that will not give up easily. Two native settlements (can be Incas, Zapotec or Mayas) will always be there to help you in the quest.
