Note please play test and post with any issues or concerns for consideration for Finalization of map.
Close Date for Revisions will January 21th, 10 pm EST.

Special Creator Notes:
1. Starting oil by map default is set to 1000 oil. This adds a new dynamic so that if you destroy a castle or fortress, it can not be rebuilt. This adds depth to team strategy.
2. It is also the intent that players will be forced to seek out the expo's quickly and not camp. This is meant for either a FFA or team play via TVB.
3. Total Gold of map rivals that of Gow classic.
4. This is meant to replicate the Maze BNE but for 8 players, it is similar but obviously will be vastly different in design.

One really interesting thing is that iirc a blacksmith actually costs oil and in low resource games you can fuck someone by killing their smith.

I believe it works out that if you kill someone's fort and mound, they have the oil to get a new stronghold and make a new mound, but if you kill someone's fort, mound, and smith, they can't go hold again.

blacksmith is 100 oil, hold/keep is 200 oil, castle/fort is 500 oil. If you cancel an Upgrade you get the full resource back. If you cancel a blacksmith you only get 75 oil back or so. You can rebuild back to a stronghold but then you will have 0 oil as you have surmised.
