III. MAP INFORMATION
A. THE STORY...
The river K'irn drops out of the cloudspines on the border between the province of Strand, and the untamed lands. Many small fortresses are scattered along it's banks. Small regiments are still assigned to these waystations though the wars are over. Occasionally, pride overcomes honor and rival commanders will send thier troops across the river to prove thier superiority and perhaps win favor with the king. Not to be outdone, the opposing banks forces muster to meet the challenge of the Borderwatch.
B. Map Features...
Borderwatch is a team map. All 4 meshes have 2 starting locations. The map spans a section of river that cuts a deep trough through the mountains. Steep cliff faces rise above the churning waters. Two fortresses face each other across the valley left by the K'irn. The season is a golden autumn. There was at one time a nifty prisoners game on this but I never got it to work correctly so I removed it.

Pimpy chose the unit selections and balanced them
Chikitilo, Angus, DrunkBoB...gave much love and support
The Forest Giant was made by Mormith
Myrmidons ported by Chikitilo
Swineherd by Bungie
Bridge models are from "Chimera" by Badlands...how I miss those guys.
Oh ! theres also a blank Borderwatch Mesh with flags and scenery already placed, so you COULD make your own mesh pretty easy!! Long live Myth and Third Party Maps. Mapping is as much fun as playing!
