The Alaia Confederation is secure and the time has come to recover the lost lands of Alaia. You have been sent to do this, and have successfully crossed the Great Desert. However, in doing so, you lost all the resources (except a little food) and the advances enjoyed by the Confederation - you are starting from the stone age again. A passing traveller tells you that the coasts are now under the control of the Sea Wolves. Other than that, the only help you have is a very old and possibly inaccurate map. I have a text file which contains solutions, or at least strategies which have been successful, for Alaia, Desert Crossing, the Valley of Heaven, the Lama of Hellgate, and the Reclamation. Send me email at the above address if you want me to send this file as an attachment. Multiplayer also : No
The latest in a series of scenarios about the Alaia confederation by Gary Thomas. Another nice well rounded scenario to add to this collection Playability Ocean based scenarios aren't my favorites but this was good one. I probably spent too much time building up but it was still fun Creativity As usual with the Alaia scenarios a nice blend of originality and playability Balance A couple of scares at the start, but you have the time and the resources to build up. You have to find the right location to settle your little villager and then you will need more resources from other islands later! Map A good balance for an island map. Nice use of different terrain on each island Instructions A good bitmap and generally good story and instruction. I have to mark this down a little as you are supposed to pass an artifact to your friends the "Foresters" but right from the start they are listed as enemies and I ended up wiping them out. This didn't affect the overall gameplay too much just gave me some confusion! Overall : Well worth a download. In fact look for any Gary Thomas scenario as they all play pretty well.
