Someone on the Polish forums told me to try my hand at myth-based campaign for Zeus. 'Pelops and Sons' is the product of that attempt.
It follows the story of Pelops, who becomes King of Pisa in the land of Greece. His rule of Pisa and courting of Hippodamia is included in the story, then there's the rise and fall of his sons, Atreus and Thyestes, and in the finale we shall help young Agamemnon and Menelaus in just a few tasks.
I have extensively tested it and therefore there should be no bugs whatsoever. Little advice: do not over-spend in the first two episodes, and keep your housing districts away from the large plateaus, as during the adventure you will be required to construct a few (rather large) Sanctuaries.
18/01/16: Reduced the military strength of Elis so it should be easier to conquer if you fail to pay the ransom in time.
If you looked at my posts you will see that I had a problem - should I pay the ransom or acquire a 4th trading partner by conquest? The story line would indicate that you could take either approach, but I could not find a way to conquer, so restarted that episode to concentrate on making money to pay the ransom.
There are a lot of sanctuaries and housing to fit in. I built my first Elite in a place where it could not be improved to meet later requirements. I did find a new place later to fit in a larger Elite without having to demolish a sanctuary. Not knowing what future episodes would require my first Elite placement worked out well and I kept it.
Good balance in a long adventure.
A very solid adventure with a little of everything.
Map Design: 4
Pleasing design and varied terrain. Always adequate resources available, somehow, to complete an episode.
Haspen always weaves a good story. He also provides very helpful guidance. Ignore the story and his instructions at your peril.
Many thanks to Haspen for all of his adventure writing.
