Arthus has once again busied himself with another free-build, and it is with great pleasure that I can announce its arrival. Drawing on what we loved in the first Ourea Map, the second in the series combines much of what we enjoyed in the first map with some new improvements. Plenty of space and the option to build in the more challenging heights, offers the player a greater variety of options when playing the map.
The map features an invisible signpost, which is located in the west corner of the mountains. A trial invasion may be wise before deciding to settle.
Well let’s not delay it any longer.
We hope your enjoy The Ourea II.
Here’s a snippet of the story…
The Ourea II
Deep in the Germanic wilderness a road winds to a great extent along a river that passes through and runs with the Danube. The path is still and the air cold. Mist hugs the ground in the mornings and hides by the afternoon. The nights are unbearable…
Three soldiers march towards camp…
It is morning.
Deep bellows ring out amongst the trees stirring birds from their roosts.
“Victor surely there is no soldier in the kings army as ugly as you.”
“ Well now I’m not so sure of that, you my dear friend can’t be too far behind,” Victor replied, fighting back tears.
“Please don’t be so modest Victor, the pleasure, I assure you, is all yours.”
“Will you both shut up! You are like two little girls…this place is dangerous.”
“Lord protect me, said Victor crossing himself. Would you fancy that Bruce? Mathew says it’s dangerous.”
“Oh yes”, replied Bruce…”like the couple of savage women in the last raid, they could dish a fair slap”…
Mathew stops and is still. Bruce and Victor joke on. Before long Bruce turns and sees Mathew.
“What the bloody hell are you doing?” calls Bruce.
“Quiet, I heard something.”
The sound of dead branches breaking underfoot sends Mathew’s gaze over the river. Above crows spill from their high roosts, their harrowing calls echo outward into the abyss. Mathew’s breathing begins to grow heavier and his heartbeat more intense. He looks to his friends but finds no one. Fear grips him and around him the trees seem to grow taller blocking out more and more of the suns white rays. The forest around Mathew begins to spin, faster and faster until it brings him to his knees, his hands grasping his head in agony. He begins to scream…
