The Monthly Challenge for July 2003 is a slightly edited version of the Creek of Aberil scenario (which comes with the game). You play as Anon, and your job is to finish the map in as few turns as possible. Nekron must be set to CPU Emperor. You can have exploration ON or OFF, whichever suits you best. Teleporters must be switched ON (sorry BTOOIC).
Please save on days 5, 10, 20, 30 and every ten days thereafter. Save immediately before the final battle, and send that final save to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org by 23:59 EST on Thursday 31st July 2003. You can save and reload when necessary, but please do not reload battles excessively in your aim for perfection. The final battle must be winnable in autocombat.
PLEASE NOTE: There are two bonus championship points available for anybody that has the MC Ring in their possession when they complete the map, and another two points for anyone having the Jolly Roger headband. Please mention which items you are claiming bonus points for at the time of making your submission. Good luck!
The Creek of Aberil was too beautiful a place for Nekron to leave alone. It's happy bubbling waters mocked him. Only fetid swamps and black wastelands should adorn a world under Nekron's dominion. Of course the Life Wizard, Anon, being wise and understanding his rival's nasty contempt against natural life, refused to allow the place to fall to such a monster.
