Pandoran is a part in a 5 map series of small puzzle maps. It has a very short playtime (about 15 minutes) and features a puzzle to be solved in order to win. This is not an ordinary economic map, since its main focus is solving the puzzle. View the included textfile for info how to get the complete series.
The King fears you and your fertile country as a potential threat to his kingdom. To prove your loyality to the crown, he asks you to fulfill a quite impossible quest. Don't dissappoint him or else you will be punished or banned, what he is secretly hoping for. You won't do him this favour, won't you? Take care of your ressources!
Best Willis - you have obviously not understood the point of this download. It clearly says that it's not a scenario to play, but a puzzle that will take a few minutes and it's therefore not fair to rate it as a normal scenario.
You said yourself that it took a while to work out, so it was obviously successful as a puzzle. You will find, if you do a search, that Hanarky makes beautiful detailed scenarios - well worth downloading and playing. These few puzzle ones are something different.
As I can't delete ratings, I have to delete the entire comment but copy your comments below:
'Well, okay, it is a puzzle, but...
ERROR: The zip file isnt a .map file, but .sav file. You should update it or players would have to rename it.
Playability: It is a puzzle, but I think Stronghold isnt a Rubic. This wasnt playable at all, but I appreciate the puzzle in it, therefor you have 2 points for this. First I tried so hard to find how to get the workers up the hill. Than I noticed what I should have noticed and did a breakneck thing... I dont want to disclose the puzzle. Even thou, there are no enemies, not even a wolves, just bears and you should kill them with your archers immediately. There is also no need to care for the food.
Balance: There are no enemies, like I said b4. I cannot really speak bout some balance in this scenario, thatz why 1 point.
Creativity: One puzzle for a map - not enough. Everyone would try to do it the way I did it and after that, you can just watch your workers carrying the iron. There is nuthin making it harder to acomplish or even a lil bit more entertaining. JUST ONE EVEN DURING WHOLE GAME. I did have 2 points over there, but Im not so merciless.
Map Design: Good work. You should try to do some serious scenario with this. Really good.
Story/Instructions: Story was good and so the instructions.'

Well thank you GillB, you got the point what this map was meant about. Good Job :)
I can only say again, read the accompanying textfile, that comes with the download to see where and how to install a scenario and for hints.

A fun map with one fine clue.
You have lots of initial stone. And more then enough of initial gold. Now use it all.
The landscape looks very pleasant and realistic.
