    TEMPEST OF SORROWS
    Tempest of Sorrows (orToS) is an 8-player, spawn-based map. It centers around quick action, with free units spawned every one-and-a-half minutes, and with upgrades to increase the size of your spawn.

    GAME FEATURES
    • Eight randomly assigned player bases with unique Heroes and faction unit rosters
      • The White City
      • The Forest Alliance
      • Fabricators
      • Serpentine Pact
      • Ravenhold Fortress
      • Beastial Hordes
      • Ashlander Tribe
      • Slaghelm Mountain Orcs
    • Spawns of free units every 2 minutes
    • Gain gold by slaying enemy units and Heroes!
    • Spend gold to add additional units to your spawn, or instantly buy uniquely powerful elites
    • Faction Heroes with various abilities and unique playstyles
    • Sacrifice your own units to The Maw at the central arena to gain bonus gold!
    • POSSIBLE IMPLEMENTATION: The Maw is also a place to buy powerful mercenary units - the cooldown is lengthy though, and someone might get to buy them before you!
    • Revised Armor and Damage Types with a tremendous impact on gameplay
    • Creep Camps/Bosses are placed around the map - defeat them to add unique bonus units to your spawn!
      (For example; completing a quest for the Centaur Warlord will add a Centaur Archer to your spawn).
    Example: Dark Magic

    Heroes are no exceptions! There is no such thing as "Hero Armor" or "Hero Damage"

    I really, really love the terrain of Woodheart. Also reminds me a bit of King Leopold's maps. :-)

    Alright this does look really nice.

    Is it purely Players vs Players or will there be some larger groups of powerfull creeps in the map? (Kinda stupid question I know)

    Looks lit. Reminds me of War of 12 kingdoms.
    Inspiration, huh?
    And by the way, the FFA mode will be HELL. Looking forward to this map.

    Thx for the encouraging replies all!

    I actually just forgot to mention that.

    I plan to put creep camps/bosses in the map that, when defeated, will award players with bonus spawns (for example; completing a quest for the Centaur Warlord will add a Centaur Archer to your spawn).
