The Egyptian Civil War - Week 1 - Turning The Tide

Author File Description
File Details
Number of Scenarios: 4+2
Difficulty: Mod-Hard
: : First Week - Turning The Tide : :

"The first week of the fictional Egyptian Civil War. You take command of the desperate Japernian Division, last hope for the Loyalists and for True Egypt."

Rameses, regent to the throne, is being usurped by Prince Anaxos. While the loyalist armies are worn down in the attritional battles, the last hope for True Egypt lies with the only mobile reserve unit - the Japernian Division.

You command the Japernians and their Captains to strike against Anaxos's weak ally (the Caliphoans). If you have initiative enough, you might - just - be able to divert Anaxos' troops from the battlefields.

Complications will, of course, happen, but command well enough and the stage will be set for a counter-attack on one of the main battlegrounds.


This is my first uploaded campaign - I have made many of various sizes, but never submitted them.

Story is fictional but in-depth.


This campaign includes a Prologue and a Bonus scenario (the prologue requires no effort whatsoever to complete and is therefore "skippable").


A readme with installation instructions, as well as an optional Language file, are included.


Most scenarios are quite hard, but are generally short (I can beat the whole campaign in 12 minutes, but I have had a LOT of practice. My brother tested it at about 15-20 minutes, but I have since made them harder...)

Many thanks to the maker(s) of the Microscopic Map Size, as I use this several times.

ggerrands Just finished the 2nd Day 5 scenario (Breaking the Caliphos Chain). A challenge! I had to play it 3 or 4 times to win under time. Well done. On the merits of that scenario alone, I consider this campaign well worth the download.

Wahey, thanks :) I did start on week 2 but unfortunately my laptop broke. I have it back now but am working on AoK a lot (a balance mod and a Renaissance mod).

I might return to week 2, I originally had plans for the whole 3-5 week war but I've never had the patience to work on large maps, which is why most of these maps are deliberately small.

EDIT: WOAAHH 520 downloads??? sheesh I wasn't expecting that!

Suddenly feeling slightly more likely to make week 2... ;)

AOEDar I found this to be impossible to play. It opens with everyone building wonders and in less than a minute I have lost. I restarted it ten times to fine that not only do I not have any resources but I do not have a town center or villagers I do not have a converting priest. I do not see the point of it at all. It was just a sad waste of time.
