I am happy to introduce my newest map I made for the community:
Centurion - The Last Battle


"My name is Quintus Dias, I’m a Roman soldier, and this is not the beginning and not the end of my story... I had been in the cold peaks of Caledonia for three days, no water and no food; I was standing on the threshold of Death. All hope had left my Soul, and I felt nothing could help me. Everything had begun two weeks before..."

Author's Notes

I had been working on this map after I watched the movie, Centurion. Yes, this map is based on the British movie, directed by Neil Marshall, which tells the story of the Ninth Legion, who are marching north to Caledonia, to finally wipe out the Picts and their king, Garlicon. Unfortunately, they couldn’t succeed, because they have been betrayed. The Picts slaughtered the whole legion and only a few have survived. Those few try to escape from the cursed lands of Brittan in the hope of seeing again their home: Rome. Sadly, the Picts are chasing them too, because Thax have killed the son of Garlicon. The Roman soldiers have to survive the land itself as it tortures them more than the Picts. By the end of the movie only Quintus (the main protagonist) survives, but he can't go back to Rome, as Agricola, the governor of the province wants to murder him to hide the fall of the Ninth Legion from the history. Luckily the soldier escapes and rides back to Caledonia to live the rest of his life there.

The map plays the last battle between the few remaining Roman soldiers and the Pictish warriors chasing them. I’ve tried to recreate the battle as it was in the movie: The player can control only 3 troops and a total of 10 Picts will attack in normal mode (three of them are pre-placed). So the gameplay is very short, however it's more tricky than you can ever think!

I hope you will enjoy the map, it really took me a lot of time to make it, but I've enjoyed it, I feel it was worth and I'm quite pleased with the outcome. So, if you have time, please leave comments and rate!

Good luck, brave soldier!

Lord_of_Hell Hey, nice map.
w0lf10 Really nice map, hey what happened to L.O.N Shattered Kingdoms Campaign I was looking forward to playing your next map.

Anyway, it looks like a really good map, I would rate it but I don't have the origanal stronghold anymore sorry.
lordmich Wow, amazing map ! :)
Realy nice gameplay, I played about 5 times before I won, so it wasn't easy :) I have a lot of fun each time I play it now ! Btw, great landscape, I love roads and the forest, but the castle is the best from this map, very creative project.

Well done ! :)

P.S. Sorry for bad English, I hope you've understood ;) .

Greetings, lordmich.

Thanks for all your comments guys, I'm glad you like this map! :)

W0lf10, I'm working really hard with that campaign, but if you look at the forum you can see my progress very well. Btw. all maps are completly done, the only thing I had to do is writing the fifth chapter, correct the mistakes and release it. ;)

Regards,
Adam the First

lordmich I also can't wait to play L.O.N. ! :)
w0lf10 Thats ok, I wouldn't know what taking time meant, but ever since I brought out my first LOTR map I have been working hard on the next couple of missions in my Kastav campaign.

Good luck with the L.O.N campaign.

w0lf10 Thx very much, If I ever need anything I will ask you thanks for the support.
Lord Ethan I think i gave you a 4.6 or somewhere around there on one of your LON maps that was a 4.4. I thought it was better than the rating even if only by a few points. Cant wait to play this one!
