The Asian Dynasties Maps
With a rich coastal region and a bountiful interior, the island of Borneo promises endless opportunities for expansion and conflict. Each team has access to a Trade Route servicing the breadth of the island, where a wealth of Gold and Food may be discovered by those willing to brave the dense jungle. The waters around the island are visible at the start of the game, and are ripe for fishing.Native Civs: Jesuit, Sufi
Players begin on a humble patch of rock rising up from the middle of the sea. Fortunes will be sought on the central island, as players must migrate north to establish bases on this resource rich coast. Wild beasts roam the island's northern region, while Gold mines and ancient Treasures can be found nestled amongst the cliffs to the south. Your Home City has prepared well for this expedition, so your first Shipment will be available quickly.Native Civs: Bhakti, Zen
Players start on opposite sides of a central plateau that contains thick forests and abundant wildlife. Resources are plentiful, as Mines, small herds, and sparse forests ring the surrounding lowlands. Trade sites are situated at the edge of the map, while natives inhabit the plateau. The plateau is not present in free-for-all games.Native Civs: Bhakti, Sufi, Udasi
Gain control of this expanded map's vital choke points to restrict your enemies' access to the most valuable resources. Players start with Town Centers in close proximity to thick forests. Beyond the trees, in the lush central valley, vast quantities of Food and Gold lie ripe for the taking. Beware, as established native settlements dot the landscape. In the Upper Himalayas, there are no Trade Routes to obstruct wall placement.Native Civs: Bhakti, Udasi
With rich coastal waters and plentiful resources, the Indochinese peninsula promises many opportunities for expansion and conflict. A central river provides naval access inland, and numerous religious sites dot the landscape.Native Civs: Jesuit, Sufi
Players begin on either end of a long narrow island. Mines can be found on the smaller islands nearby. A larger landmass opposite the other coast features a tiny but pivotal Trade Route. The limited supply of Food on the main island will drive players to fish the rich coastal waters.Native Civs: Jesuit, Zen
Players begin in generous grassland. To the north lie the fertile slopes of the steppe, where players will have to extend their reach in order to bolster their economies and reach the distant Trade Route. The number of grazing animals is astounding, and can be utilized to great advantage.Native Civs: Shaolin, Sufi
In the distant north, hunting is plentiful among the great forests, and a frozen river separates you from your enemies. The future route of the Trans-Siberian Railway lies to the south.Native Civs: N/A
Starting from their Markets at opposite sections of the famed Silk Road, players vie for control of this lucrative Trade Route. Since the map portrays a randomly selected part of the passage, three terrain variations are possible, each with unique characteristics. Players do not need to establish the route, only capture it before the enemy does!Native Civs: Shaolin, Zen \ Shaolin, Sufi \ Bhakti, Udasi
During the dry season, the waters of the Yellow River recede to create fertile new islands, and animals often gather near the river's edge to drink. During times of flood, extra resources abound and naval craft are sometimes seen along the river. Recruit local groups as allies to take advantage of their multiple trade routes located along the borders of the map.Native Civs: Shaolin, Zen
