[G]Holocrons by RF_Gandalf
December 30, 2001

This new custom random map for SWBG is an adaption of the Hallowed random map for AOKTC by Ensemble Studios The concept is one of many Holocrons scattered across the map (10 per player!). Each player will start with a Jedi/Sith Apprentice and a Jedi Temple, to start collecting the Holocrons immediately and thereby begin to amass nova. The map is mainly land with a number of small ponds, and a forest pattern fairly similar to Desert (or Arabia, for AOK veterans), and there are 4 different terrain patterns for the sake of avoiding repetition (Naboo, Krant, Alaris and Kashyyyk are the patterns used).

There are few changes from the expected. First, the Hallowed map had 3 monks per player and this map has only 1 Jedi/Sith; this is because the Jedi/Sith have such a powerful attack. Another difference is that this map has less than usual nova deposits - each player has only 2 small clumps of nova near their base, with no other nova on the map. This forces you to use the Holocrons to amass the needed nova for your army and for research. The last difference from the expected is that this map uses a different randomization scheme for food than the standard Lucas Arts maps. Every map has both Muja Fruit bushes and Nerfs, but there are 4 different levels independantly selected for each. There is a 1/4 chance that either Kaadu/Eopie or Dewback/Falumpasets are missing, like the standard L.A. maps, and when present each will also vary in amount.

This map has proved great fun in testing. Feedback appreciated!
