started playing this great game again after a while and here's a military conquest adventure.
Was tested at olympian level and was challenging. Definately not for starting players.
Download and extract into your adventures directory.
Depending on how you choose a colony, Alexandroupoli or Rodhos you play the good or bad guy. Let me know if there are bugs. Enjoy.
(Updated: fixed a few things)
Tough, but certainly not impossible. Expect to work for your commodities and expect a lot of divine retribution as well. Not a scenario for complete novices.
There's a very nice balance between ferocious war and trade opportunities, including fluctuations in commodity prices. The mythological aspect is somewhat severe in the beginning of the scenario but fitting nicely in the 'underdog' role the player assumes.
An average of points 1, 2, 4 and 5. Some work has gone into making this adventure and it shows.
Map Design: 3
The colony maps of Rhodos and Skiathos are quite the same and because of their size challenging in regard to the requirements. The main map is adequate, requiring some logistical skill in placing roads over the small hilly ground without much ramps.
A very thought-through scenario with a real storyline that even diverges based on which colony you choose near the end of the game.
This is the kind of adventure I like to play. There's room, there's some mythology going on, a lot of war and trade. Quite a bit of everything really.
