Author File Description

File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Difficulty: Hard
Minimap:
The tension between the freedom fighters and the kings men has been growing.

Alderland has now plunged into civil war. After taking and destroying the weapons facility, the king has declared war on any who support the "outlaws." Using Celvenport as a base of operations, he rides to his besieged brothers aid in the north. At one of his castles, the two come under siege with little defense to aid them. Rumors of a large force hang heavy on their minds as they prepare to fight the ruthless Alderland Army. Endelin has claimed lordship over much of the country, but many large armies issue out of the new "capital city" to destroy all those opposing the king. If Endelin wins here he must quickly muster his armies to defend those lords who dare to rise against the king. Little hope their seems now for the country, as the armies of the king close their grip on the area around Celvenport, with Endelin trapped in his brothers castle, the future of Celvenport lies solely in the hands of his closest friend and captain of the some of the free army, what is left of Celvenport will be found out if Endelin is able to return there, but for now he is trapped.

I don't think this map lives up to your name Zerotide. Its is alot plainer and easier than your previous maps, i was pretty disapointed. It's an average map and the lack of creativity is what made me bored of it. The castle design was simple and had no great detail although the rock paths at the back were different. Your stoy was good though. Well punctuated and lengthy, what i like to see in a story so good job. Overall not a bad map and i suggest you have a look at it. A nice simple invasion. You would be better off playing on hard though if you want a challenge.

As i return from a long vacation, i find my self playing this map. I had played the other maps before for the saga and thought they were good. However this was a dissapointment. Lack of balance made the map boring, the castle it self looks as though anyone could of made that. Where did all the mystical structures and funny looking walls go ? It was just so plain hence the 3 for map design. Poor river very badly made, you could of included a bridge to make the map more creative. Units ae very badly balanced maybe more armoured units and less xbow men. Simply just too easy i grew bored when it first began, the castle itself looks boring. Im afraid i am being very harsh because of the forum and Gilb saying we are being too generous which is true. Some maps are outstanding and some need more work on them. This one needs some serious work on it, i was expecting something better from you zerotide but this is not what i expected from a Saga which looked to be very interesting. Sorry but I will have to agree with Lord Arthus.

Good fun quick mission. I was able to beat it on my first try, so maybe some more invasions would have been better. I liked that it didn't take very long to play but was action packed and kept my attention. The map wasn't overly interesting but it served its purpose. At the start of the mission I didn't think that I would have enough men to defeat all of the invasions, but it all worked out okay. There is definatley a trick to winning this one.
