Map Type : Capture the flag 6+ players
Two great and mighty castles face each other, floating
in the inky black void of an extradimensional vortex.
Between the two a titanic span of steel reinforced concrete
is seated. The castles strain to support this structure with
cables running through the necks of the span, and
supporting pylons stringing high tension cable
through the top of the span. In the middle of the span, a
a large concrete structure houses two precious flags, mere
meters from each other. The inhabitants of these castles
must protect their houses honor and standard while engaing
in mortal combat to obtain the standard of the opposing house.
Its damned good fun.
