Well, This is the first map for my upcomming series "Conquest of Akavir". You are put in charge of capturing a small port city on the south part of Esroniet. Once captured renovate the port and begin to gather supplies needed for the voyage over to Akavir.

I have put the story in the Zip File. If you find any errors with the map, please tell me. I have tested this map multiple times so i do beleive i got everyhting.

Reviews and Comments are welcomed!

Note: I added a lose condition if you fail to capture the castle at the start.

Dumptrailer2 Is this your first map? It looks real good from the minimap, but deserves a closer inspection. ;)

Nice story too, by the way.

Ok i updated the map a bit more. I gave the player 2 more years to meet the requirements before they lose. Hopefully this will become easy for the non experienced players.

Fintrollx Review to - Invasion of Esroniet - By Taurus480

Playability: 5

I definetly had fun time playing this map and all scripting worked perfectly, i can see there has been alot of playtesting put into this map thanks to that the balance and playability are perfect, i don't think you could have done a better job :)

At the start of the map there is fun cede castle condition, we have 10spearmen and 10archers and 1portable engineer to take over the island. That was a challenge also, it is not really hard but i had to restart once becouse i think i took to much time on killing enemy forces, next time i knew how to do it fast, so that was really fun to play.

After the keep was mine i fastly made food production, wheat farms, a mill, and bakeries, i also deleted inn and breverys and built woodcutters, it was fun doing the economy, while there was invasions to handle, and a fire which also devasteted me in the first playing time, i played this few times on normal then i completed this with easy and normal difficulties. in normal i had hard battle i could not make too much bowmen becouse that was one of the things i needed to win, also i just managed to get the stones and gold on the place! there is really hectic economy controlling to gain the resources.
while defending from enemy attacks, what more can you ask from a good invasion?

Balance: 5
I had my times wondering how to do this map right, i knew i had to take over the island fast and get the economy running was my main objectives, i also found out that early fletcherers are needed and stone mines.
Balance is really good this map really is hard and so it is supposed to be, but when winning a hard map it's really fun feeling. you gotta have the right strategy, i think i had when i won this on normal.

Creativity: 5
The map design is really creative the two lands, alot of eye-candy, the land on north where the keep was had amazing eye-candy, really realistic. the walls next to sea are amazing looking and so are the custom flag towers.

Map Design: 5
Brilliant! natural nature, and cool eye-candy that's all i need :)

Story/Instructions: 4.5
Really good story you have there, i didn't read the whole thing but the campaing text. there is also good instructions in-game.
i think you should have put some of the story and more instructions in the download page. other than that, really good job.

Additional Comments:
I can't wait for the next Chapter of this campaing!!!

Thanks for the review! right now, i am still worken on terrain for the next map. i should be done with teh terrain in about 2 days, then im off to playtesten it -.- i really dont enjoy it. But all i am going to say is that you guys will like it.

If you read on through the story you will pretty much know what will be next. The map is 400x400. Its also featuring another port city, and i am designing the terrain to be exact with the descriptions left in the text. For a guess, i would say the map will be ready in about 5 days :D
