This is surely not my cup of tea. Too many cities weakly garrisoned, you simply overrun them all using even just 1 level 3 unit ! Playing this one is just like filling a huge crossword...you fall asleep hopely before your pen runs out of ink...no emotions, no challenge, only a huge list of cities to manage...yawn....zzzz...zzz..zz..z..

Marco says that it is too easy; this may be true, but
he misses the point that this is a nostalgia scenario
from an earlier age. Great nostalgia at that.
The balance is adjusted by increasing the levels of the
opponents. Make them all Warlords,don't cheat, and it
isn't that easy.
This is an homage to the old Warlords I map.

The additions to the small island near Lord Blue, aka
the Selentines corrects the barrenness of the original.
Additional Comments: I enjoy playing this scenario. It
may benefit from improvements, but all the elements for
a great game are in place.

It reanimated old good days of Warlords Saga games... If you liked it, you will enjoy the map even if only because of nostalgia. Very easy against AI even on emperor level, but can be well played hotseat or other kind of multiplayer if you like epic wars on huge map.
All wizard's positions are quite balanced.
Actualy if I was not lover of warlord series and this map in it I would choose 3 there. But I am so it gets 4.

Same as creativity.
This scenario has very short story (as in warlords again) - kill them all!
For these who loved warlords games and/or these who like XL maps with lots of cities.
