Starting a new "Bactria" style map called "River Oxus", the major river that run through the Bactrian valley. Bottom half of map is green and trees. The top half across the river is mountainous and have many passes and treasures.
Based on images like this:
I think the game should have new water type called "Rapids."
A "skirmish" object in Atlas that spawn barbarians would be a cool one. Maybe call this mode "Barbarian Invasions"? First must decide this a mode or a game feature? If just a game feature with no other special condition, could just be a toggle thing like treasures in game setup instead of an actual "mode". The game does not have very defined "modes" right now anyway. (game does not have a death match mode yet, and regicide reminds me more of a mode than a victory condition; could have Lightning mode too; if do modes like this, then Barbarian Invasions/Survival of the Fittest would be more like modes that have definded conditions and stuff, but this all take more thinking).
