This map is made to be played a certain way, but you can play it any way you like, it's a 3 player with 2 Arabian outposts and a second exact map with 2 European outposts. You don't get an outpost.
If you want to play the map the intended way, then you should put yourself into the single keep and 2 allied Caliphs across the map, start with a normal game and give yourself 4000 gold, and try not to use the extra powers.
The map has you tucked into a protected area, your enemy will be side by side with 2 outposts together in behind them, the stone and iron are outside of your area and will have to be fought for, you do have a small amount of iron in your area, plenty of growing room and trees.
Happy Extreme Gaming!
