All is lost

Author File Description
File Details
Difficulty: Hardest
Version: Rise of Rome
This is a crisis: The most sacred of our places, the Holy Temple of Mountain Tissis Parta, has been viped out of all defences, and all our countless artifacts have been stolen. Our rivalling nation's leader, Jason, is behind this outrageous attack. After penetrating our few fortresses and sinking almost all of our weak navy, he has settled his army near the place to ensure the safety of his workers, that are building watch towers of his own to the area to establish definitive control. The villagers have already constructed one tower, and they should be back at any time. This project must be undermined before it gets too much initiative.

There are also other bad news: Our former allies in the area, the Village Kmeux on the Mountain of the Sacred Lake Pontikkaus, have turned against us by the pressure and bribery of Jason. They got one artrifact in return, and they are not going to give it back to us voluntarily. The Jungle warriors also got their one for a peace treaty, though they aren't allies with anyone.

To top it all, the Holy Temple is still being raided by our opportunistic greedy neighbors. They don't know when to stop, and they might as well raze the Holy Temple! Jason would stop this, but unfortunately, he is uninformed about the current events. However, if the situation would start to look unfavorable, Jason might retaliate himself and ruin the temple as well.

So bad is the situation, that we need your ultimate skills with this one. Save the temple from the raiders before it collapses, for it is the crown jewel of our empire. Kill Jason to demonstrate our enemies that we are superior to them. Reformulate that Watch Tower to dust to liberate this area. Sink the Jason's navy blockade to give access for the reinforcements I'm sending later to finish the enemy off. Retrieve the 2 artifacts from Kmeux and jungle warriors and deposit them to the Holy Temple - we need to teach these people a lesson about consequences from picking the wrong side, and taking their share of the enemy operation is a good start. Do these things, before Jason's villagers return. Please, don't die in the process.

- Don't die
- Don't let the Holy Temple get destroyed
- Kill Jason
- Raze Jason's Watch Tower
- Defeat the Jason's navy
- Retrieve 2 artifacts and bring them to the Holy Temple
Please note: This is extremely difficult scenario. Winning it requires game knowledge, imagination, great micromanagement and some luck. However, don't come here to say it is impossible to beat - I've won it several times.

Kastanje57 I won't give a rating and I'll try not to be too negative about this.

After some 10 attempts to survive with my priest in the first few minutes of playing, I got bored about this scenario.
I like challenges a lot, I like puzzles scenario's to sort out.
Making sth difficult is one thing, maintaining a good playability is another.

I think it's very important to keep the player amused while playing through difficult games.
To me, this scenario lacks that aspect.

About the map design;
I can see that it's done with care but the looks of it can be done much better.
Tricatscoc Interesting scenario, but could be worked better
