When the Hittites strike at the heart of Egypt, the Phoenicians must free themselves from the yoke of their oppressors. Once liberated, they must prepare a defense against their Hittite saviors.
-A reimagined scenario from an Age of Empires 1 custom campaign
This scenario originally comes from an Age of Empires 1 custom campaign named "Tides of Fortune", with the first mission being called "Liberation". I do not exactly remember where the original AoE1 custom campaign came from or who made it, all I know is that it might have been sold for money (alongside other custom campaigns) in retail stores back in the day. I ended up playing it some months ago and felt like remaking it for Return of Rome.
I remade this scenario in order to efficiently learn the AoE2 scenario editor as well as AI scripting. Also, this scenario is not very difficult if you have basic game sense and awareness.
