Hadrian's Wall

by Palat

the most historically inaccurate map ever made

Difficulty: Hard to Impossible (played on Very Hard)


It was morning in IX Hispana’s camp. The air was cold. Meanwhile, thousands of Roman legionaries prepared for the day. Loud noises were heard: the pounding footsteps of marching soldiers, commands being ordered. Billows of grey smoke billowed into the air.
Suddenly, a loud noise was heard. “Open the gates! Quick!” People gathered to see. As the huge wooden doors opened, in trotted a man in a purple toga, accompanied by several other heavily armed guards. Everyone gasped- it was the Emperor himself, Hadrian, right here.

The mighty ruler and his companions dismounted. A centurion rushed to attend him. “Sire, what brings you to visit our encampment?”

“Nothing really. I just came to visit. Bring me to the wall.”

“What wall? That wall?” the legionary pointed towards a partly constructed stone fortification.

“Yes, that wall, idiot.”

The soldier stepped back shamefacedly. Hadrian was led to the fortification.

“Ah! Perfect!” Then the emperor stopped. “What is that? I hear voices...”

He bent over the wall to see a couple hundred thousand tribesmen staring back at him across the hills.

“Gods! Man the wall! Yes, I know it’s not finished!” Hadrian screamed at a legionary who was about to ask him that.

Heart thumping wildly in his chest, the emperor ran as fast as he could to a stronghold he had constructed near the seaside.

And then, as the Emperor drew his sword, the tribesmen charged with glorious zeal and loud booming cries were heard as a sea of arrows converged upon them...

Hi palat,
Impressive screenies... but could you please reduce their size a bit? Please make them no wider than 500 pixels. (Otherwise they can cause problems for members viewing at slightly lower screen resolution settings.

Sir Ravenclaw I must say, nice use of HTML to really grab a readers attention - the screenshots are impressive too!

Thanks, everyone.

@ericgolf: Yeah I will be fixing them in a bit.

@ Peter: I just got winrar and I'm not used to it so I assume just putting the map file in there is okay, I'm not sure.

Does anyone have the same file problem Peter is having? It has some minor issues, but it worked on Alexus' pc all right.

@ Sir Ravenclaw: (yeah, took me a lifetime :P)

I have already clarified this in the forum, but just to make sure for anyone who is downloading this map & hasn't read the post:

There are minor glitches.

Woodcutter problem, peasants turn into woodcutters (even if huts arent built) then disappear as they cut down trees.

Trebuchet problem, enemy trebuchet attacks own walls. (solved)

AI mysterious switch, possesion of Invasions switch from other AIs to Rat. Rare case, happened once. Probably will again.


These problems may cause the map to have major problems sometimes, feel free to notify me if anything goes wrong. ;)



I just changed the size of the pics so they should have no problem. I checked the zip file and that's weird because it ended with .map...
