The Monthly Challenge for August 2003 is an edited version of Glen E Bailey Jr.'s scenario, Plea from the North. You play as the undead Garon, and your job is to finish the map in as few turns as possible. The other two wizards must be set to CPU Emperor. You can have exploration ON or OFF, whichever suits you best. Alliances must be turned OFF. I've given you two zombies to help you on your way!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org (or email@example.com) by 23:59 EST on Sunday 31st August 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!
Roger, August 2003
Plea fom the North - a map by Glen E. Bailey, Jr.
(Garon) A cold wind whispers a plea for help while you sit in your study. Frozta, that beautiful sorceress of the north, is requesting help against Ignis, the Fire Lord. (Note from Roger: you'll ignore her plea, and take everything for yourself... muahahahaha)
(Frozta) Lord Ignis seems to think you are weak so has declared open war upon you. He has already taken a city of yours, so you sent a plea for help to that brash young wizard in the valley of green.
(Ignis) These upstart young wizards think they can challenge you. You will soon crush them and make them do your bidding.
