Rise of Delphi

Author File Description
File Details
Difficulty: Hero
Number of episodes: 5
Welcome to my second ever adventure. This adventure consists of 5 episodes and is centered around the city of Delphi. Establish this city and continue it's development from a small settlement into a big mythological crossroads. The story is loosely based on historical events.

I've tested this adventure on Olympian level and found it quite challenging. There are a few quirks here and there which I wasn't able to solve, but I felt it had enough playing value to be released to the public.

Have fun and of course all comments are welcome!

Haspen I see your mapmaking skills did improve!

Time to download and play and see if the rest improved as well :)
Haspen Well!

The third episode is simply unwinnable on higher difficulties. How?

Simples! You made Hermes appear every year. Because of that, trade is blocked every year. With Sardis getting conquered it means you can get 10 fleece per year tops (3 from Athens and 7 from Sardis) which isn't really enough for the 5k people goal you've set.

Higher difficulty means that we get only 7 marble per request from Corinth. While doable in some extreme way, it's pretty unfun to wait 20+ years for the Shrine to Apollo to finish...

(and yes I've played on Olympean)
Orichalc Just want to say this map looks awesome! Hope I'll find the time to play it.

Ah, I actually had the same problem when testing. I just couldn't figure out why I could only request so little resources from my allies. Now I know it's because of the difficulty level, heh.

Thanks for the comments, Orichalc!

Mazeppa Wow, that's quite a nice map.

Hopefully, I'll try it out after my semester break ends. =)

EDIT: You've also kinda gave me a little inspiration for something I wanted to do for a while now. :D Hopefully the Zeus bug will catch me again after semester ends. :)

Mazeppa Yeah, it seems Haspen's right. :)

Episode 3 in Olympian Mode is not entirely unwinnable, but it does take a very long time to complete. Hermes is the culprit here. ;)

Luckily, I've managed to defeat Echidna using Theseus in Episode 2, so I dealt with Episode 3 a little easier. :) (Get Theseus to fight her near his hall. When he and Echidna both retreat, add walls to block her path, so that she goes back to the same place. When Theseus emerges again, fight Echidna again and she will be killed. I think that's how I did it).

You could edit the episode if you want, by getting Hermes' invasion to occur in 2 years, and then set it to recurring, and then add Hermes' invasion in the zeroth year as a "One Time Only" event, so that the player can trade every other year instead. Well, that's just a suggestion anyway. :)

Now I've got the 5,000 pop goal left for Ep 3, and I'm not giving up. :) Map's too beautiful for me to give up. ;) Loving the storyline too. Very creative.
