The Old Mountain Post
|Number of Players:
The Kingdom of Valanya, being devastated by years of war, followed by plagues and famin, forced its Emperor to lead his people away, to find a new place that they could call home. This new "home" came in the form of an old mountain post, overseeing a vast planice, with rich resources. Over the years, Emperor Rannador, transformed the old post, into a powerful citadel. Each year brought minor lords from far lands to the plains and, agreeing between each other, they were allowed to establish their homes there aswell. Business grew, trade started and, the neighbor status, evolved to some sort of allies. A new kingdom arose, called Mons Postirium, in honor to the first ruins found there.
But everything that is good, sooner or later ends. And this ending came in the form of four new inhabitants of the plains. As usual, the kingdom sent emissaries to welcome the new arrived, but they never made it back, having been brutally slaughtered and their heads displayed on the, now enemies, walls.
A war broke out, ending what were the golden years of this new born nation.
This is not my first map, but the first I've decided to upload and share. I've done some others with more eyecandy and/or explendorous constructions, but now I only wanted the warfare itself. Nothing tooo complicated. And besides, there are people in here (you know who you are) that have excellent works in the area of eye candy and alike :).
My sugestions are that you play against 2 saladins and two Caliph. I've heard about the wazir and some other tough character in warchest but, since I don't have that yet.... For an intense play give 40 k to all AI. Usually my allies are, Wolf, Pig and Richard. Oh... and you would play the mountain post.....
And that's it for now I think
