The Conquest I -

The first part of the ten part series starts off with the arrival on the scraggy shores of the Forrian peninsula by Prince Edward and his men after the great battle for Ithsmir. Prince Edward led his followers across the wild sea of Versek and Eventually arrived on the North-Easter peninsual of Sallium. Your fathers kingdom in ruins, you have landed at a village owned by the foolhardy Lord Malian. You must sieze this oppurtunity and capture and defend the village. 'in vinculis etiam audax' - In chains, yet still free!

The Conquest in general follows the path of prince Edward and many other characters in their conquest for peace in the islands of Hertoin. The first five maps will be set in Sallium and the last five in Dinlathia. As well as the prologue video which can be downloaded here there will be a epilogue video.

The Conquest I is quite a moderately easy map as it is the first in the series. It is designed to be played on normal. The maps will get harder and longer as the series goes along. This map should be played by both experience and newer players as the balance is set to enable a majority of people to play. In the zip file there is a background to the islands of Herton, and the storyline that Edward finds himself in. There are tips on how to play the map and of course - the map.

-Note - The first 15 people to download the map actually downloaded a beta version of The Conquest II due to my immense stupidity and disorganisation :( . The mistake has been rectified so could those 15 people download this again and wait for the final version - sorry!

If you have any comments, suggestions or complaints please e-mail me at

I would greatly appreciate your comments on the site.

Thanks a lot !

Playability: 4

I had fun.


Balance: 3

A little bit on the easy side, though, this is explained in the read-me file


Creativity: 4

Though, there is nothing particularly outstanding in this map, all the elements are brought together in such a way, that it's obviously been well thought through.


Map Design: 4

I thought that the overall map design was good with a little added kick for the starting positions.


Story/Instructions: 5

The story seems very good, indeed!


Additional Comments:
This was a fun map and a great start to the series, I look forward to the next installment. Sorry, I have no suggestions to improve this map, but this is my first review.
