About This File
Bridge Of Woe is a 5 player Hellscape. The eastern players have more of a luxury in deciding to cross the bridges, whereas the closeness of the 3 in the west forces a more immediate series of confrontations. The 3 bridges provide ample strategic routes for attacks. Players in the west are in a more tense situation, but they have the horses. Nobody has an abundance of rice, and the northwestern player with the only profound height advantage is cramped and suffers from the water-is-far-away problem. The northmost bridge is quite architecturally neutral, with a few choke points. The broad central bridge has a raised control position in its middle, valuable fighting terrain to hold or retreat to during an advance. The southern pathway is closest to the sulphurous ash - its surface has crumbled and warped to the point where it is mostly only a chaotic single-file line of death, hanging dramatically from its entranceways. Its dangerous nature means most players need not worry about attacks mounted through there.
