The Seventh Wonder

Author File Description
Amiculus
File Details
Minimap:
This is my first attempt at creating an adventure. I have based this adventure on the history and mythology surrounding the ancient city of Ephesus. As I did research into the founding of the city and the eventual construction of the temple, I tried to include events that unfolded according to the history book. For example, the city of Sardis actually patronized Ephesus for a while before being conquered by other Persians. I have put many hours into tweaking and testing this adventure and I have tried to write an engaging story to go with it. I hope it plays as well for you as has for me.

Playability: 4
Difficulty: Hero(normal)
First couple of episodes had interesting if easy challenges(budgeting, labor management).
The final episode requires a number of conquests to complete.
A simple mix that an intermediate player may find interesting. Advanced players might consider some personal rules.

Balance: 3
The final episode can be won unexpectidely if you spend enough time in the first episode. There are few scipts in each episode so extending play isn't much use. I went mostly for speed play thus avoiding some things and ignored other events.

Creativity: 3
Knowing the game mechanics can defuse some of the challenges that the designer might have been thinking about.

Map Design: 4
I liked the Parent City Map. It used a medium sized map which was refreshing. I only saw half of the scripted earthquakes, since I was going for speed, so missed out on their added character.
The Colony Map was Nice but had dozens of minor elevation change errors(Black Holes).

Story/Instructions: 4
Storyline was entertaining, informative with a humorous twist.
Lacked instructions, but the adventure was mostly straight forward, so no biggy.
