Eight races are ready to conquer the world. This world is full of quests, treasures and relicts former civilizations have left after they disappeared. So watch out for strange looking places across the map - sometimes a quest might be hidden there! Try to accomplish the quests and the reward is yours. There are also several set items hidden across the map. The extention (x/y) behind the item name will identify the item as a set item. Try to collect all items of one set and bring the complete set to the BLACKSMITH. He will create for every complete set that is braught to his hut a powerful unique item.
There is no storyline you have to follow. Just go out and develop your own strategy. It is up to you.

Nanni This was one of the best maps I have ever played. Full of quests and unpredictible incidents. And one advice: if you are told to stay out of somewhere .. DO IT.
Thanks to the author for this map.

Map is interesting to play because of good cities location. There are not very many sites and I like this very much. Landscape plays important role in strategy. And you can receive a lot of fun with custom quests.

Balance: 5
Perfect balance is not reachable. But I do not care about this. However, the map is not easy for AI, I think first player (humans) would not have any difficulties.

Creativity: 5
There are many new interesting ideas and interesting implementations.

Map Design: 5
Excellent. Each mine is placed in appropriate place.

Story/Instructions: 5
A lot of custom quests and items.

Additional Comments:
I had been waiting this map since I bought Age of Wonders Shadow Magic. And I am waiting for new map.

I have played the map in single and multi player mode. My friends and myself had a lot a fun for several games. The conditions for the players are quite balanced all over the game.

Balance: 5
Over all equal. If you select one of the shadow races winning might be easier.

Creativity: 5
Many new ideas (items quests unexpected incidentes).

Map Design: 5
Different harmoniseded sceneries do make exploring exciting.

Story/Instructions: 5
No story, but isn´t really needed. The quests tell their own stories.

Additional Comments:
Mabey one of the best maps I have ever played. Great fun at all.

definitely the maximum size for an amd 2000 processor with only 256 mb ram, but what a fun!

Balance: 5
pay attention when trying to occupy a hostile capitol: every player gets a 8-monsters-army, when danger's near his home city.

Creativity: 5
many quests and nice buildings (i love the brewery). you can collect about 8 different sets of items and when 1 set is complete, you get an unique item after bringing ist to the blacksmith's hut - very good idea for hero-tuning.

Map Design: 5
very nice landscape all over on this map

Story/Instructions: 5
not always the same lord-of-the-rings-stuff, some funny episodes in the quests.

Additional Comments: the best map i ever played.

One of the most creative maps I have ever played, the game world and scenery was a pleasure to look at.

Additional Comments:
Awesome map. I havent played AOW2 for a few month now, but still got hooked by this one for a few hours.
The quests are amazing and the map is beautifully designed. I gave map design 4.5 because I think the
shadow land is a bit flat and could apply a big
more touch up. Nevertherless, I dont really like
shadow land anyway - a failure concept of AOW SM.
Mampang Looks to be quite a good map - but it ALWAYS freezes around turn 25/30 on the Black AI turn. Bit of a shame - have downloaded the scenario again and installed my AoW again to no avail.
ArgonautS Great Game. I enjoyed it very much. Finished the game when I killed the last player, but there are still a few unfinished quests. I love the open-ended way that this game is set up... almost remind me of Might and Magic games :)

Where can I find the blacksmith? I went to the island at River Flumen, and found a blacksmith sign. Beside the sign, is a Rogue Hut, but nothing happen when I enter it. I have several complete set items which I am trying to upgrade, but cannot find it. Please let me know.
