The Southrons came in last both times.
Mogoth 1st / 2nd
Edain 2nd / 1st
Easterlings 3rd place both times
The south needs wither more lands or turn Har-Lethren, Dorgaloss, Dorgaeron into 2 pop lands.
The channel keeps turning into a bottleneck and really hurts the Southrons at Ithilien.
It is too easy to hurt them there and more pop lands and possibly one more city site would really be best for them to be even useful to play.
Very tight map even with 4 players and 5 would be max here.
The East side would be nice to extend at least one more player board size by adding in a little more land and possible south as well.
Thanks so much for your playtesting and feedback! I'm not sure when I'll get around to making edits, but when I do I will certainly do so with your feedback in mind.
