The Chronicles of Darlindur: The Beginning of the End

Author File Description
File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Difficulty: Hard
Made with version: 1.2

The legend says that''the kingdom of Erekea was created by the ancient gods, and from them it was given to the men who now live there. Again according to legend, the human people chose four representatives to speak with the gods. The ambassadors were brought in front of the most powerful of all gods, Asol, the God of Earth and Fire. Together they decided that humans would choose a king to govern Erekea, and to speak with the Gods. The next day, the four humans were returned to Earth, and told the people what they should do. For the first time everyone lived in peace and harmony, and it was decided that the four ambassadors were to reign over Erekea, as a reward for their courage. The four kings were good and just the beginning, but over time their greed grew enormously, and began to fight among themselves. During the 3 rd Council was established that every sovereign would take a part of the kingdom. But this was not enough, and soon the four kings began to war. The youth died, burned the crops and the cattle became ill. The gods tried to intervene, but humans had become unfaithful, and no longer believed in the existence of the Gods. So the gods could only watch the slow destruction of the world they had created.
Darlindur,clerk of court.''

It had been 200 years since those events, and the situation had not changed. The heirs of the four kings had continued to make war, and the kingdom of Erekea still impoverished. The businesses were broken, the roads had been swallowed up by vegetation and an epidemic threatening the health of all people. Everything was as at the beginning ... but one thing: there was something in the air, like a vibration. It is perceived that mysterious forces were working to change the destiny of Erekea. For some it was a sign that the Earth was about to be destroyed, others believed it was a message, others do not hear. I believe to be the work of the ancient gods. We may have forgotten them, but they certainly have not forgotten us. I think they want to resolve the issue once and for all.

Darlindur,clerk of court.


Now I'm sure ... the gods want to destroy us! Many still do not understand, but I will. I am still close to the old gods, and from them I got some powers. I have lived long and sometimes I have dreams of warning. And tonight I had one. I saw a city burning, and dark rows of soldiers who massacred the inhabitants. I could be wrong, that was the city of Gaemlena, capital of one of the four kingdoms. The gods want to eliminate us to save Erekea ...

Darlindur,clerk of court.

Gaemlena stands on a promontory, and there is only one entrance to the city. The problem is that the entrance was occupied by the enemy. They came at night, killed the guards and burned the city. The king with a few survivors retreated into the fortress, and they are under siege. You can choose to defend the fortress, or to try to win back the gate, to better fight the next invasion.

No enemy or invasion left
The Lord must survive

At the beginning of the game you will have very few resources, I advise you to use to build a barracks and an armory. Try to recruit all the soldiers available, otherwise you will not do to resist. Do not waste resources to build a market. As I said, businesses were interrupted, so you can not buy or sell anything.

Lord_of_Hell This is certainly harder than your first map, good work!

Still, there are still masses of troops just sitting at the signpost. Have you experimented scripting the invasions in smaller amount and during more game years, like I first suggested in the previous map review?

Yes, I tried to make small invasions, but the truth is that I could not win :P If you want I can put small invasions, but I do not like the idea of making maps more difficult than I can play

Lord_of_Hell You couldn't win the map with small invasions scripted? Actually that should make it easier.

But anyway, could you win the map on normal?

I'm still trying to finish it on very hard but it looks like the overwhelming enemy forces are too much for my limited missile troops.

I won the map on normal difficulty with a large invasion, with small invasion I lost because all the enemies attacking me almost simultaneously, and I could not handle the situation ... to very hard then I lost it now: (
