This scenerio is about happened on Song Dynasty. You are the leader of the Imperial Escort. You are to delivery the artifacts to the designated city and destroy the bandits and rebels during your missions. Multiplayer also : ???
This is a pretty decent scenario which is mainly a limited army mission with some puzzle elements built in. You are given a variety of troops and buildings with quite a few resources but no villagers and no town centers. The whole scen takes place in the Bronze Age. You must decide how to spend your resources to best accomplish the mission. You must fight through 3 different enemies to get your artifacts home. I liked the spot that you had to fight through lions and elephants - that was nicely done. The thing I didn't like was the added conquest victory condition. Getting the artifacts and hero through should be enough. Conquest becomes very tedious, especially without siege weapons which you are not given. I liked the gameplay strategy that you are forced into with the limited troops - you must be somewhat creative to be successful. The map was nicely done and it looked good from upclose and on the whole map view. Good job.
