Author File Description
File Details
Number of Scenarios: 1
Difficulty: Hard

The Heavenly Escort - A campaign for Age of Empires/The Rise of Rome Expansion

The Yakuzo Tribe is in desperate need of a new leader after the unexpected death of Zhe Yu, former ruler of Shengato. Wo Long, an old Saint, decides to call for help from a neighbouring tribe, the Ikuzi, which is commanded by you, Tageshu, a noble young warrior. Will you be able to guide the Spirit of Zhe Yu safely to the Holy Temple, complete the holy ritual and become the new peaceful ruler of Shengato?

Game Version:
Age of Empires - Version 1.0b
The Rise of Rome Expansion - Version 1.0

Scenario Type:
Fantasy, Puzzle, Build and Destroy

Important notes before playing:

This campaign MUST be played on AoE 1.0b or RoR 1.0 versions. You will not be able to continue when playing using the AoE 1.0c or RoR 1.0a patch.

Difficulty setting MUST be set on "Hard".

When Saving your game, you MUST reload your initial saved game again to continue in the normal 3 x Hitpoints Mode/Lengthen Combat Mode, otherwise the hitpoints for every unit is tripled once more and the campaign becomes unbalanced.


Extract and copy "The Heavenly Escort.cmp" to your Campaign directory, default path:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires\Campaign

Optional - Extract and copy "language_THE.dll" to your Age of Empires directory, default path:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires\

Rename the file to "language.dll" (without quotations) after making a backup of your original "language.dll" file.

The "Making of" The Heavenly Escort:

ThePokeFan This map is amazing! My only trouble is the part where you are supposed to take Mercedery (excuse spelling) to that temple of lost soul thing? Where is it and how do you get to it? It's holding me back from finishing this piece of art :(!

An answer would be much appreciated!

Hi! It's part of the puzzle, you should be able to find it by making clever use of your raft and clubman after arriving in the Trader's Cottage. Also remember that you must use "Delete" to get rid of a Wall.
