-- Map Pack Sekando --

"Bushido Map Pack Sekando" is a collection of three map plug-ins intended for use with the Bushido Units tagset from Creation.  Although you can also play the maps with standard Myth II units, the unit selections are balanced and optimized for Bushido gameplay.
 
Bushido Arena
A map by Clem

Four teams face off in the confines of a stone-tiled sparring arena.  With fewer opportunities for terrain advantages, sheer tactics become the key to the outcome of the game.
