    Claim the throne before your enemies do!

    I'd love to get any feedback you wish to share.

    I love the theme, and the board looks great.
    The throne in particular looks nice.
    There's a door in the lower area hanging off the map, which is a bit weird. The roots look cool though.

    The boulder and the matching pillar are Impassible, which surprised me since we use those for Blocking terrain in the official maps. I could imagine people would just assume those were blocking and get a nasty surprise.

    I was only able to play against the AI, but I imagine wizards would tend to hang out on the opposite side of the sunken marsh taking pot shots at warriors vying for the throne. I think it would be very cool to play properly.

    I'm not 100% sure on this, but it might help to use the shadow decals to create an inset drop shadow effect in the sunken area. This might give it a bit more depth and make the transitions a bit less harsh.

    I've updated the original post to reflect changes. Thanks for the feedback!

    Yeah was kind of trying a more 3d-ish effect. The top double door is the same. Intended to look as though it is standing up from the side of the board. may remove...

    Yeah, you're right. I should find something that is conventionally used as impassible and switch it out. Thanks.

    I've gotten a few people to test it out with me and while that has happened there has been a lot of variation in play styles. I'd love to get more people playing and feedback though.

    Yeah, it's a lot more sparse than it once was. I'll go pretty it up a bit and make that change.
