Senan Bridge by Lord Mario II
Recomended difficulty: Normal or hard.
Kingdom of Guiarda
Mago reclaimed the world as his but the kingdom of Guiarda refused to accept it and the king started a full scale war against him.
He called for many men from across the kingdom to defend himself, sir Cyro took his army in secret and layed siege to Mago in his own castle.
It is now the year 1065 of the middle ages. Ten large years have passed since that event.
Magos armies commanded by Osi IV have taken all the south continent by surprise and unopposed...
and now with the senan bridge restablished he marched with his entire army to the bridge...
But in the meanwhile the men rescued the queen who was missing after visiting the old catedral of the east woods,
so the morale of the soldiers was up to the heavens.
And so begins the story of senan bridge...
Senan Bridge is the only way to go to the south continent, but it was destroyed by Mago's troops once. Mago, the lord of the mistics, the evil wizard, the one who slayed all his enemies and ruled over the monsters... he recruited his armies and put on charge Osi IV to command all the legions that would cross the bridge, take the castle and burn the villages.
The king recruited his best men and went himself to the bridge where he was severely injured
but the bridge remained on the men hands.
Finally all the best knights arrived at the bridge... maybe there is still hope...maybe if they win this battle here, the mistics would retire from the south continet...
-My lord, we are ready to fight to the last man!
Hello El Duke Mario II, congratulations on a fun interesting map!
The map was fun and launched you immediatley into the action. Some quick reflexes are needed at the start of the map to get a handle on things. The armies you face are large in numbers, but go down rather easily when they are met head on with your foot soldiers. Good job in this section.
The map is perfectly balanced in my opinion. I won on easy and normal with not too many problems. On hard, I was defeated and attempted playing the scenario out again. I won, but not by much.
The map's creativity is somewhat lower than the other scores because the map was somewhat plain. Nothing to original put into it. The bridge is good looking, but the rest of the map needs a little more attention to get a higher score.
Map Design: 3
The map's design is average, because at one or two times when I played, the enemy stoped to destroy the bridge, thus eliminating the possibility of my defeat. The beach area could use a little more work to make it look more rugged or something of the sort. I think that some more detail could have been applied to the landscape to make it look a little more realistic.
A nice thoughtful story that the author obviously put some time into. Some of the things mentioned in the story could have been introduced a little bit better though. Perhaps explaining the "mystics" a little more.
This is a nice little scenario that launches you into a big battle right from the get go. I recommend this map for download. Defending the small bridge with my garrison was good fun, and the map is not to difficult, nor is it too easy.
