Author File Description
File Details
Difficulty: Hero
Number of episodes: 5
***Updated as of 9/16/18; reduced the frequency of god invasions and decreased the max troop numbers of enemy invasions per the reviewers below***

Playtested it at Hero difficulty, and it's a challenge. Maybe somewhere between Hero and Titan in terms of difficulty; if you're not good at modifying your cities, you may have a bad time.

Do note that the prices of commodities are not standardized; this is a neo-dark-age campaign; people would rather be safe in a city than be paid high wages, and some resources are scarce.

A couple of quick tips: raiding your enemies with frigates can get you the resources you need. Dionysus is very useful. You'll need to consider what monsters you may face (look at the mythology tab) when choosing which gods to worship and what resources to stockpile.

As always, I check back in on this stuff from time to time, so leave a comment if something's screwy and I'll see if I can sort it.

Good luck!

Thank you! It's calming to make nice maps :)
Buznag Good Map, but after the first episode no colony locations show on world map.
Mazeppa Not bad for a title, man. :P Hope you continue giving us adventures, haha!! Quite a neat-looking map too.

If only I had a little time off from med school, I'd probably finish one as well. :(
pegasus03 Don't like the earthquake is so meaningless,and is too difficult to defence in early,hope you can remake it

@Buznag The colonies are right on the north and south edges of the map, but they show up on the default 1024x768/unmodded graphics I run. Do you have a different resolution setting for your mode?

@Pegasus03 Natural disasters are going to happen in a city that Atlas and Hades have both taken a personal dislike to.

I'll grant that there's a lot of invasions early on, and I'm thinking I'll reduce those a bit; I like the theme of people constantly attacking your city, but if you're playing on high difficulty, the swarm is probably too intense.

Thanks for the insightful review! I'll take another look at the events and maybe modify them down a bit or allow the player a bit more time. I'm mostly in awe of you playing on Olympian; I don't even try at that level of difficulty =)

I was initially going to guide the player into choosing the northern colony before the southern, because it's about 7x easier, and I went back and forth on the "no fountains" thing, but I thought it fit the theme too well to leave off.

My dad got me this game when I was maybe...10? First memories of playing it were probably in '03. A while ago :P
sergeyrafirudov The god invasions were too much to bear. I spent most of the time rebuilding the mess the combo of Hera, Hades, Hephaestus and Atlas make of my city. Zeus and Poseidon hardly ever make it in time to kick them out, and it's more annoying than enjoyable. Otherwise, great story and great ideas (I like how you tweaked with the Fountains)
adresgry Hi. I very much liked the first episode, but then I encountered the same problem as another person here: no colony place to choose. I changed the resolution to what you proposed, but this did not help, so I cannot finish the scenario :( If multiple players encounter the same problem, maybe it's a good idea to reconsider the locations of colonies? Just a thought. The first episode is very enjoyable though.

[EDIT] Never mind - after yearssss of playing this game I have just discovered that I am able to change resolution in the game. I tried changing the computer resolution. Feel dumb right now hehe :) Anyway now all is fine :)
