Interesting map based story on the expansion of Isis. Uses the geography of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers to tell the story:

Similar to their Snow Fall story but more map based. My only major criticism is the use of an full detail river layer for their header graphic. The rivers and lakes could have been simplified quite a bit I think. The rest of it looks pretty good, could use a but more emphasis on the locations in the scrolling image maybe.
