Calymnomachia

Author File Description
Haspen
File Details
Difficulty: Hero
Number of episodes: 9
Minimap:
Once upon a time my mind suddenly became preoccupied with tragic stories of Ancient Greeks, where, by accident or otherwise, a son would kill his father, or a brother would kill his brother, and so on, these usually leading to tragic (and very bloody) events.

Calymnomachia thus follows such a tragic story, but I won't spoil its plot; the adventure's introduction spoils quite enough.

Have fun! Criticism, praise and bug reports are all equally welcome ;)

Update 3/6/16 (x2): Minor bugfixes.
Update 4/6/16: Even more minor bugfixing.
Update 18/6/16: Even more bugfixes related to Ep.7; besides that added a separate military decline Event that will weaken Caphareus after few years into episode.

Why are you rating the adventure if you haven't finished it yet, then? :P

You have to send some troops when Calymne asks for them; about year or two later Caphareus will start losing 'shields' aka become conquerable.

I will go see if there might be a problem with the event triggers.

EDIT: I have checked the event triggers and I did not notice any errors. Both the initial and subsequent calls for aid from Calymne then trigger military decline at Caphareus.

Are you sure you're playing the newest version? (the one uploaded at 4th June?)

Okay are the following events happening in Episode 7:

1. Calymne asks for military help against Caphareus, you comply within time limit.
2. You receive news that attack failed.
3. 6-8 months later you receive message about Military Decline in Caphareus.

Because I just played this Episode myself and all these work since the very first request for Military, and I did conquer Caphareus few years later.

I have updated the file with newest version; Events have been re-ordered and I added a separate Military Decline event as well just in case (it will happen 5 years into the episode). You need to re-load a save from Episode 6 if you have such a save, otherwise you need to restart the whole campaign.

Hopefully this time it will work!

zapo I completed Episode 7 at the Hero level without difficulty (HAHA)using the version I downloaded on July 3. I did read the comments and it unfolded as Haspen said it would. I responded to all requests. I saw that C was down to one shield but waited for the notice of military decline. I then sent everything I had (6 Thermes, Ares and Artemis warriors, 40 Hoplites, and enlisted the strongest of the two allies that I had to choose from).

I'll do a review after I complete the adventure.

Playability: 5

Played at the Hero level.

The adventure unfolds, as most do, with increasingly more difficult and complex Episodes. There was nothing that caused me to restart very far back in an any episode. My restart was usually due to something I did or did not do that led to a defeat.

The later Episodes are long slogs (very slow progress in meeting goals). Especially 7 and 8.

Overall, no problems in completing each Episode if you're willing to stick it out and keep going.

Episode 8 is very frustrating. Just as you want to give up for lack of progress you get a break. So you keep going, but it is quite a while before you are in position to conquer.

Cheap, cheap, cheap. Try to make a living selling olives, wood and cheese.

I've played a lot of Haspen's Adventures, so I know he wants them to be playable.

Balance: 4

There was a mix of moderately annoying and nasty monsters with some really destructive gods. Athena in Episode 8 was really destructive for a long time with many appearances.

Military action was minimal until 7 and 8 when it, combined with some destructive Gods, was almost too much to handle.

Creativity: 4

A very nice Adventure concentrating on resource management with a lot of rebuilding (over and over).

Sufficiently complex to allow for multiple lines of play.

Minimal use of natural disasters.

Make it through Episode 8 and you can spend time preparing for a wedding.

Map Design: 4

A pleasant design without being too constraining. Now where am I going to put a Sanctuary to Zeus after I built-out my city?

I really hate clearing trees.

Story/Instructions: 4

It's a 5 star for a very well written story.

I only gave it 4 because I think it is more than needed for people that just want to play the Adventure. I like stories that you must read to get clues on how to play the Episode.

Additional Comments:

Haspen is a master story teller and non-stop developer of new Adventures! Three cheers.
