Description : A Capture The Flag map, designed for about
10-12 people, but it should be able to handle more
without getting spammy. The map is set on a large
high mesa, where the two bases are divided by a
ravine.


------Credits and Thanks---------------------------------------------

Maniac: for the basic prefab of a rope bridge which I modified for
use in this map. Thanks!

Clan BeefCake: for the hours, days and months of critiquing and
playtesting & also to |CA|PapaPup.

Caroline, my wife: for understanding my need to code, create,
and visualize.

Zoner: for some nice tools. :)

And thanks to Valve for Half-life, and, of course, the producers of
Worldcraft, for whom I owe this success!


------Additional Info, Tips, and Notes-------------------------------

1) Flag Room - Engineer Heaven, but not invulnerable. As an
engineer, you'll want to move your gun around each time it gets
taken out.
2) Well/Attic (Upper Level) - First layer of D. Enforcing the
battlements and covering the water area is critical to keeping
your base from being overrun.
3) Offense - You'll want to send a coordinated attack if they
have a decent defense. At least 2 people - One to clear or
distract, and the other to start moving the flag.
4) The map is fairly simple in design, but open, and roomy in
the right places. It should be an intense game with 10 or more
people. There is plenty of room, so spread out.
5) Center Area & Battlements - The Upper level of the battlements
is accessible, just jump/duck from the center to the wings and
you'll be fine. Also, the corners of each base offer a nice bit
of shelter for anyone needing it.
