--------
Hello! It's finally out, it's taken a while to finish though :D

Thanks to:
  • Dougleass - for playtesting
  • ericgolf - for playtesting, and for checking through the story countless times
  • Battle Mage Corp - for playtesting
  • Shir Shpamalot - for playtesting
  • artofmath - for playtesting

    Now that the acknowledgements are done, I'll continue with the map :)

    -------

    Story:
    Within a strike of the whip of the enemy, El'Crosium had fallen to the enemy.
    Treaties soon became dust with the news of the capture of the town, a landmark they swore to protect, after that, the Freedom Defenders came to nothing. Lords and noble Sirs begun to leave, they thought of the Freedom Defenders as strong and skillful, although their thoughts changed to weak and dishonourable.
    They, were sadly mistaken.

    Following the demise of the town of El'Crosium, the few remaining members of the group formed a plan to retake it.
    The few lords that were left had little armies - some even had none - but with honour, they strode into battle.

    Capturing the darkness that now facaded the lands of the surrounding countryside, those few lords and their small armies felt a sense of Delerium.. those honourable men, fought hard..

    --------

    Objectives (on normal):

  • Capture the town of El'crosium
  • 140 cheese
  • 24 swords
  • 24 armour
  • Eliminate the enemy, by diminishing his army that he throws at you

    Market:

  • Meat
  • Wheat
  • Wood
  • Iron

    --------

    Hints:

  • Use your portable shield whilst capturing the town, otherwise, you'll suffer..
  • You must buy Iron to produce the Swords and Armour..
  • You will be bombarded by events, so be carefull..

    --------

    Final notes:

  • Wood and Wildlife are abundant in this map
  • The 3 swordsmen you start with are the lords mentioned to arrive at El'Crosium in the story

    Included in the .zip file are; the map, a panoramic view of the map, a screenshot of the map and the full story along with acknowledgements and notes :)





    Please, enjoy the map and rate fairly :D

    Review of Sir Ravenclaw’s El'Crosium Delerium

    Summary- Overall score 4.6
    A beautifully crafted scenario. Players, If you haven’t downloaded this one yet you don’t know what you are missing. You will really enjoy this one.

    Playability: 4.5 – Excellent.
    Great fun taking the fort. Great fun laying out my farms and growing my settlement. Great fun slaughtering the invasions. Simply great fun!

    Balance: 3.5 – Very Good.
    The fight for the cede needed very careful tactics. I found I was not challenged too greatly in the main part which followed, however.

    Creativity: 5.0 - Outstanding
    As I said above, this map is beautifully crafted. It comes in a “medium”-sized package too. The fort is most unusual: no gate; palistone walls; wooden walkways with “embedded” magic box doors; and elevated platforms with wooden steps. There are highly creative story and instructions to accompany it.

    Map Design: 5.0 – Outstanding
    The beautiful fort (see Creativity above) is set in an equally beautiful landscape with enough resources and space to allow the player to really go to town raising an army to compensate for having no gate to keep out the invasions.

    Story/Instructions 5.0 – Outstanding.
    There is an excellent story in the zip. The site description page is beautifully laid out with clear headings, a short snappy version of the story, a screenshot and a panoramic view.

    Well done creating such a beautiful map Sir Ravenclaw :)
