Mission Name: The Apostle Thomas' Mission to Indo-Parthia
Mission Designer: Rakovsky
Scenario Version: 1.0
Rise of Rome or AOE: Both
Single Player or Multiplayer: Single Player
If you have AOE:ROR or AOE:DE, move the file "Thomas' Mission to Indo-Parthia.scx" into your scenario folder.
If you do not have AOE:ROR and have only the original 1997 AOE1 or a patched version like AOE1 1.0c, then put the file "Thomas_Mission_to_Indo-Parthia_AOE1.scn" into your AOE folder's scenario subfolder.
These two scenario files are the same except they are in different formats depending on your Game Version. I originally made it with AOE:ROR in mind, but either should work.
This mission is fun for a good player on the Hardest setting because the Kushans present a challenge by heading straight for Sirkap, where you have to protect the Government Center. The Easiest Difficulty can make things too simple because it slows the attackers enough that you can practically stick with your basic objectives like growing your population. So I recommend using the Moderate to Hardest settings because helping to defend the ford or the capitol is fun.
I playtested the game and liked it a lot, especially defending the capitol while meeting other objectives.
The scenario is part of a Series that I made about early Christianity that can be found in the Heaven Games Granary:
