Asphilicus

Author File Description

File Details
Difficulty: Beginner
Number of episodes: 1
Minimap:
Hi everyone,

this is my first attempt to create an adventure. Since my storytelling skills are not yet developed, this adventure is limited to one episode only. I've added in some events but nothing too fancy. My main focus was creating a nice map to build an even nicer city in. Since I always play the game in Beginner mode (I am lazy), I have set this adventure as Beginner. However, feel free to play this adventure with a higher difficulty and let me know how that works out.

Played on Olympean.

Playability: 3
It's nice adventure, albeit with rather slow pace and shortage of events to make the game a bit more interesting.

Balance: 3
Everything except wine was available in the city; to get wine, you need only to conquer one city, and then you can go on and curb-stomp all the opposition.

Creativity: 2
Not much to say in terms of events and their consequences.

Map Design: 4
For a first-campaign map, this one is quite well made. The shifts in elevation and uneven rivers force the player to plan ahead with the urban expansion, which is always good. Some graphical glitches (more about them below) and the obvious brush-only forests/grass was the only things I could be picky about (don't be afraid to use 1-tile brush!)

Story/Instructions: 2
Bare-bones story with little instructions.

Additional Comments:
Less commentary and more tips now!
You might want to put on food production goals a little higher than usual goods production; after all, food is *the* most important resource in any city; therefore the player will definitely make a lot of food producing buildings. 24 fish per year is trivial.
You might want to know that placing hills larger than height 3 will cause black/purple/green boxes to appear at the edges of city map. There were also some badly joined cliffsides that also suffered such problems and this was clearly visible after rotating the map once or twice.
Third, for a good story, you can use your events; why is Demeter attacking, why did she send the Medusa, what does that have to do with Byanxinthi and its attacks against our allies on the other side of the sea? Properly written out and with enough story this one-mission adventure could easily fill up three episodes, all giving you new opportunities, challenges and rewards.

All in all, you had a good start. If you try harder and continue to practice, you will only get better at making adventures! I believe in you :)
