Similar to The Unknown, Land Unknown is actually a collection of possible maps that will generate terrain and resources at random. However, it only generates maps with little to no water so naval warfare will most likely be nonexistent. Even so, players are advised to dedicate a lot of energy to scouting in the Archaic Age to assess what kind of resources, choke points, etc. are available and in turn plan out their strategy. Surprisingly, Land Unknown is ideal for new players to hone their skills as the maps it generates have no true “gimmicks” and encourage standard gameplay.
Possible Maps Edit
- A standard Greek map has large oak forests but no cliffs. Fauna found here includes Deer, Wild Boars, and Pigs.
- A Norse map where there are only small forests found near each players' main Town Center, but the center of the map supports another gigantic forest.
- A second Norse map similar to Archipelago where teams are on individual islands losely connected by narrow passages.
- A third Norse map similar to Mediterranean but the central body of water is slightly smaller.
