Die Allianz des Lichts

Author File Description
skakilla Die Zivilisation der Menschen, die einst dominante Rasse Akolias, befindet sich auf dem absteigenden Ast. Jahre lang glich der weise Herrscher Geront die Zwistichkeiten zwischen Guten und Bösen in Akolia durch Gerechtigkeit und Strenge aus. Doch Schatten liegen nun auf dem Geist des alten Herrschers. In jüngster Zeit tendieren seine Entscheidungen immer mehr zum Bösen. Geront erlaubte den bösen Rassen sogar an der Oberfläche zu siedeln.

Archonier und Elfen haben die Allianz des Lichts gegründet, um die Welt "Akolia" vor dieser Bedrohung durch das Böse zu erretten.

Auch die bösen Rassen haben das Bündnis der Dunkelheit geschmiedet. Es besteht aus der Allianz des Zerfalls zwischen den Untoten und Goblins, sowie der Allianz des Blutes zwischen den Dunkelelfen und Orks.

Befreit Akolia und erforscht den Grund für die Schatten auf Geronts Geist.

(Kein Gelände einebnen! Alliierter Sieg! Schilder geben, oft lebenswichtige, Informationen. Wer sie liest stirbt schlauer.)

The civilisation of man, the once dominant race of Akolia, is on a downward spiral. For years the wise emperor Geront ruled with compromise and strictness. But lately a shadow has griped his mind and his rulings show a tendency towards evil. Geront even allowed the evil races to settle on the surface.

Therefor the Archonians and the Elves have formed the Alliance of Light to purge Evil of the surface of Akolia.

But the races of Evil have also formed a powerful alliance. It consists of the Alliance of blood between the Dark Elves and the Orcs, and the Alliance of Decay between the Undead and the Goblins.

Free Akolia and destroy the source of the shadows.

(Please do not level any mountains. Allied Victory! Signs contain, sometimes vital, information, better read them. So at least you die knowing.)

Playability: 5

It took me 113 long turns to defeat the enemy wizard Shady and win this scenario. I did not encounter any bugs or problems. In fact, I enjoyed every turn. This should say all that is needed about playability!

Balance: 5

Balance is an interesting category for a map like this. The way I see it here is how the mapmaker was able to present the player with greater and greater challenges. You develop some amazing heroes with great items and build up huge armies, but the enemy forces still challenge you throughout.

Creativity: 5

The map shows great creativity. So yes my friends, it gets another 5 here. :p

Map Design: 5

A beautiful map. I have to say I feel honored when talented mapmakers like this design their maps for BNW.

Story/Instructions: 5

English is obviously not the author's first language. Yet all text is also presented in english as well. The extra work involved in this is very much appreciated.

Additional Comments:

Let me just say I rarely rate maps for various reasons. Even though there have been some truly great maps made for BNW by Roger and others where I certainly wanted to give them high scores. However, in this particular case I felt compelled to rate this map. I had not been playing shadow magic for some time, but after admiring the map in the editor decided to play a few turns. I expected to stop shortly thereafter. Howvever, the map just grabbed me and I did not want to stop playing! I got the same type of buzz playing this map as I have in great single players games I have enjoyed like King's Bounty and Disciples to name a few.

So let me end by just saying thank you for such a terrific map. I truly enjoyed playing it.
