Fall of the Newbs – A Campaign for All and None

Note: This campaign may contain hidden messages of communism, atheism, postmodernism and 'unamericanism'. Please ask your mother before playing.

“The English speaking world is divided into those who have played ‘Richard & N00bs’ and ‘Fall of the Newbs’ and those who are going to play them” – Sunday Times

Instructions: Save the campaign file to the campaign folder, and place the language dll files in the main AoE folder after making a backup of the original pair. There is a walkthrough included if you need it. For the story and history of the campaign, visit the forum topic linked above.

Fall of the Newbs

We always enjoyed playing AoE the most when we were newbs. We weren’t very good at all, and sometimes it would take us hours to finish a simple B&D mission, but it was filled with the wonder of unfamiliar units, beautiful random maps, and a chorus of music and sounds. We enjoyed all the ES campaigns immensely, despite later realizing they have poor map design and often lack in creativity. Once we newbed our way onto the internet, we found AoEH and downloaded scenarios by guys like Ingo and Andrea. We didn’t understand just what was involved in making the campaigns, and we hadn’t the skill to play them, but we had a great time.

Concerning Newbies

This campaign is largely concerned with newbies (treponooba pallidum) and from it the player may discover a lot of their character and a little of their history. More can be learned by playing campaigns made by newbies - try searching for “Lord of the Rings”. This campaign depicts some of the earliest newbies from way way back in 2005, who are now part of the forgotten scrolls of newb-lore.

Newbies are an obtrusive and very unancient little people, more numerous today than formerly. They love train0rz and trickz, crackz and warez, flame warz, cheatz, and anything else ending with the letter z. They appear out of nowhere, and disappear (or are banned) just as quickly.

Concerning Newbish languages (133t)

Newbies are sometimes even able to read and write, though only in more recent times. Oft it is that we folk see newbs attempt to type. When not writing entirely in numbers, they can be identified by their use of entirely capital or lowercase letters (but never both at once), and their flagrant disregard for spelling, grammar or making any sense. Though it may appear that English is not their first language it usually is. Where our campaign’s story features n00bic dialogue any punctuation is accidental, but we’ve tried to make them a little more readable by correcting some spelling mistakes, while still trying to preserve their little ways.

Fall of the Newbs is a humorous tale, with many references that new players may not understand, but we hope it will be enjoyed by newb and non-newb alike. Enjoy playing, and show it to your family and friends, or failing that, a pet animal.

The Dark Archer This campaign is awesome. It took me over 20 minutes just to read the full story. :P
GiorgosRox Second scenario is certainly the best map ever designed.
Dean McCullough ^^Yea, a bit overdone in some places though. I'm having a hell of alot of trouble trying to get through this second scenario...

Wow, that's an incredibly enjoyable campaign! It combines all major styles - in the beginning you have to defend AoEH from the cheating n00bs, then you have to find a base and defeat the n00bs, along the way you have to solve a few puzzles. The n00bs are asking for a tribute, and when you find a base you must destroy the noobs. Incredible work!

Balance: 5
The things are a bit hard, but winnable. You are outnumbered in the n00bland, but you have different approaches, which makes the campaign hard, but winnable.

Creativity: 5
Everything is creative here - the map (the AoEH lands are beautifull as always but the wasteland is awful). The story - just check the SD forum to see the incredible work here. And the VCs - what should I say - dynamics and creative victory conditions make this campaign unique.

Map Design: 5
Incredible map! Beautifull landscapes, rolling hills and eye-candies everywhere! The map is just incredible!

Story/Instructions: 5
The story has been developed for a long time and this is the result - a stunning story, helpful hints and a nice bitmap. The last section passes with A+.
