World Classic Map -> Northwest Middle Earth

Northwest Middle Earth
(Updated & modified for Dom3)

--
From the ashes, a fire shall be woken. A light from the shadow shall spring. Renewed shall be blade that was broken. The crownless again shall be king.

The original map was initially available at http://www.ascensiongames.com and authored for Dominions II by Andrew Patzwald. I have modified the borders and water and made some changes to the map file to upgrade it for Dom3. These changes included the adding of a map text color and #allowedplayer lines to prevent placement of water nations. This project was initially for my own use, but when adding maps to the map list, I realized that no updated version (that I could find) was available for Dom3 so here it is.

That is the nicest looking Dominion map I've seen.

Beautiful map. I'm surprised I never noticed it while playing Dom 2. Thanks for the update.

Thanks for the feedback & the thanks.

I hoped that the graphical changes I made wouldn't be ill received by fans of the original map. The bright red borders and the simple blue seas just hit my eyes wrong in an otherwise beautiful map.
