|This article is about the random map in Rise of the Rajas. For the scenario in Tale of the Dragon, see Yin and Yang.|
Yin Yang is a special random map introduced in Age of Empires II HD: Rise of the Rajas. The map's unique shape represents the Yin Yang symbol and presents unique opportunities throughout the game.
Unlike most of the new maps in Rise of the Rajas, Yin Yang is not fully an "amphibious" one.
Players start out in random positions in the map, players can start trapped in a circle of forest, at the very tip of enemy landmass. Whatever the case, there is always river that snakes through the center of the map, forming the Yin Yang shape. The river is shallow along the edges but cannot be traversed through from the deep end near the center. The only way to cross the river by land units would be through the shallows. Players sometimes will need a navy to get across if the enemy is nearby.
The two land bodies that are east and west of the river is somewhat similar to Arabia, with scattered clumps of trees, mines, and animals found throughout each side in somewhat scarce numbers.
The players will start out with Water Buffaloes and Rhinoceroses, as well as Deer, surrounding the players' bases. The trees featured in the players' starting positions are Rainforest Trees, and are not as scarce as in other Southeast Asian maps.
