[quote]While everybody is waiting for age of wonders 3, I refitted an old map, changing places, quests ..
Here is a short history of the map:
Long time ago this was a land where humans and dragons lived in peace. Under supervision of the dragons all races showed respect for nature and nobody was allowed to kill a cat. From time to time some Elves and Dwarves came to settle. The Elves in the woods and the Dwarves began digging. A certain time after their arrival a Demon Lord Gol-Goroth came to the land destroying forests and poisoning the rivers. After his arrival an Archon Warlord Atal arrived and the Great War of the first era started. Finally both were banished by the dragons.
But now Azathot has been raised from the dead by Gol-Goroth, the Forgotten Old One. He now commands an army greater than any army seen before. While attacking Elves and Humans at the same time, he prepared an even greater danger.[/quote]
