Angel Reckless Rodents map is a challenging configuration of resources that will present you with some interesting city building problems. Hes also thrown in a little bit of everything to keep your 50 years lively. Events include a gladiator revolt, an earthquake, and a few invasions.
If you're looking for a military campaign, however, you probably won't find this one very satisfying. Armies trickle in by the 15's and 30's for the first 35 years. By the end, you'll get a couple of good stand up battles, but nothing to write home about.
In this kind of scenario, the focus, then, has to be on city building, but that calls for a larger and more varied map -- especially if it's going to hold our interest for 50 years. I do appreciate the reasonable Prosperity setting, however. Man, I hate sitting around tweaking two different types of wine into my palaces...
