If you like a massive hand to hand battle, this map is for you. If you have a slow computer though, you may want to look elsewhere. This map is my take on Phrozen's Gladiator and credit should go to him for the original concept.
You are a Tribune in command of a Roman cohort and you have been ordered to make camp and fortify a position overlooking an important river ford. Before the camp can be completed though, a massive force of Gauls descends upon you. You order the men into position to defend the partially completed camp as best you can. Can you stop them?
Note: This map has been tested and tweaked to be a good challenge on the hard level. Other difficulty levels are not recommended but can be played. Also, this map is an invasion map that plays as a siege and will show up in the invasion list of the game with the designation - (a siege) in the title. For those who get crushed by the Gauls too many times, a winning strategy is supplied in the readme.
I hope you have as much fun playing this map, as I did in creating it. Good luck and let me know what you think of it.
PS: This is the final revision that improves the look of the original map and the difficulty is near what it was in the original. It is a little tougher to hold your ground in the first attack but the balance is still there. If you think the map too difficult, I defend it by saying this. First, it plays out quickly. You don't spend 2 hours just to find out you lost. Second, you can learn from your mistakes and see where the enemy presses the hardest or where the macemen are more concentrated. You might play half a dozen times before you beat it, but only an hour or so will have passed.
