So here it is, my first adventure, and it has been a real adventure creating it.
Jasons Quest is based on the Jason and the Argonaughts myth that you will all know well, so I wont bore you with the story.
It is an epic 9 episodes with many monsters and disasters and calls for considerable of thought and planning, I will tell you in advance that the finale consists of a massive invasion that you must survive and anyone trying it at Olympian will have to be on his/her mettle to finish it.
There is one slight bug in that Cholchis disappears from the world map when you choose it, but this does not deter from the game, not sure what causes this since it was ok in previous builds, but if I manage to fix it I will repost the file.
All this would not have been possible without a lot of help from volunteer testers, a big thanks to:
And finally some of the comments made by the testers during the beta;
"You have built a grand, imposing adventure which makes use of practically every feature built into the structures of ZEUS. It is certainly something to be proud of and I hope I have helped in some small way. I look forward to its inclusion of created adventures in Zeus Heaven. Good luck in future adventures and I will be glad to help again if you wish."(quakeii)
"This is truly a devilishly evilly challengingly fun adventure!!"(RSC)
"Great job overall on map design, story flow, etc."(AlanG)
"I think I'll try it at Hero.
At Titan, I can't make enough money to keep up the tribute, and then I
get invaded and wiped out.
The wolves are a real nuisance. I built a tower nearby, but it won't
kill the last one."(Dragon 2)
"This required a lot more effort than the first episodes in the original adventures, but it was good fun. I could not have done it without lots of playing experience, but people doing custom adventures will have that." (Dragon 2)
Some players may suffer from a bug in this adventure, entering the second parent episode can sometimes result in a blank map called "About Zeus".
A couple of testers reported this, it can be solved by placing the Jasons Quest.pak file into the Adventure folder as well as the AdventureJasons Quest folder.

I'm stuck on this one. I'm playing the colonies in the order it says to play them. I am up to Tyrins. In order to complete the requirements I need Odysseus Hall. In order to call Odysseus you need olive oil. So far this is not available to me in any way shape or form. I can't grow it, I can't buy it, I can't request it, I can't raid for it. So how do I proceed?

i was so much looking forward to playing this adventure and upon starting was very much surprised at the difficult setting for this.i like to play as hard as possible but struggled to get any where near starting on anything above mortal.
so off i go playing along at mortal and gets to the second to last episode and along with the small plot to achieve what was needed and lo and behold,have everything set up waiting for the monster to appear and an earthquake go right though the whole plot cutting it in half destroying everything in the process.
this is the first adventure i am not bothering to try and resurrect.
that is just plainly ridiculous especially on mortal level.
don't bother wasting your time on this unless you have masochistic tendencies.
