TheGoodShepherd is a long-time Warcraft 2 enthusiast from USA. He has made a number of beautiful and fantastic maps, some of which became instant community favorites. Shep enjoys water maps, as you can see from how much he has utilized it throughout his work. Shep has compiled a detailed list of criteria for making quality maps that he uses to guide his process. One of them is that the gold mine must be visible to the start spots so the player knows where to build instantly, as the maps will often have players on them that are unfamiliar with the maps. Thanks to Shep for producing many strong maps for our Warcraft 2 community to enjoy!
