Armageddon

Author File Description
Vic Carpenter
File Details
Difficulty: Moderate
This is the scenario I expected Ensemble to start the original AoE series . . since the events at "har Megiddo" constituted the first recording of a battle in human history. The account of the campaign into "Asia" which Thutmose had inscribed at the Temple of Amon in Thebes seems very plausable & accurate(as opposed to Ramses II inflated boasts!); Thutmose III was a better war leader than Ramses (I or II!) & thus in my humble opinion the greatest general if not pharaoh of Ancient Egypt! This is my tribute to him : I found it otherwise impossible to prevent the Hero Tiberius unit representing Thutmose III from rushing into the fray (& getting himself heroically killed!) when played by computer, so at the openning of the scenario he is already on a hill surrounded by his personal retinue and "tents"(houses) much as in fact he did watch the battle from a hilltop "...protecting the rear of his victorious army..." after personally leading the march up through the pass onto the Jezreel Plain from Aruna on the coast. This military "punative expedition" was launched because of a gathering by "330 princes of Canaan at Megiddo" under the leadership of the King of Kadesh (Where Ramses II & the Hittites would clash 175 years later). I have represented the coalition with seven "tribes" from the RoR roster & given leadership to the "Kadeshites" as the strongest & mainly because I wanted strong walls for Megiddo, their nominal civ is Babylonian. Each tribe has its Chief(Hero Tiberius) & it may seem a difficult challenge for player #1 Egyptian to defeat all seven of the rebel leaders, I promise that it is do-able with good strategy & tactics! Once I formulated the final mix I had fun playing either side . . hope you do too! Multiplayer also : ; ; ; Yes
