Peace has reigned for hundreds of years and the art of war has been no more than a pale memory, a horror long forgotten, a mere fairy tale that passed on from grandfather to grandchildren. Happiness, life and love had been the focus of even the darkest of races and no one longed for battle. This utopia, this paradise, will however soon come to an end.
It started only a year ago. The Gods were not pleased, they craved sacrifice, they craved blood and they craved the blood of kings. Determined that their own blood will not be the one shed at the Altar of the Gods, each King started to prepare for the inevitable, for the War who would leave only one King to reign surpreme. Only one King who would bathe in the Glory of the Gods, one King who would save his people from extinction and by sacrificing the blood of other Kings to please the Gods, save his own life and forever live in the memory of his people as their one and true savior.
Authors note: This map is made purely for MP and hence the story is kind of thin. There´s not many level 4 cities on the map and players have to rely more upon level 3 critters. The starting conditions for each race differs quite a lot and it is prepared for a "Leaders off" game which means there´s a "clone" of the leader already placed on the map. If you want to play with leaders on I highly suggest you remove the "clone". Enjoy! :)
It's hard to believe no one's rated this map yet, seeing as it's become somewhat of a standby for PBEM. A great map, pretty, fun to play, with a number of custom heroes, interestingly varied terrain, and well-spaced starting positions. I have to say the diplomacy negotiations in PBEMS on this map have been more interesting probably than any other scenario. Excellent work.
