Arctic Annihilation - Vinlandsaga: land grab for the fabled continent of Vinlandsaga, based on the migration maps of AoE-strictly for multiplay due to lousy aquatic AI
Centuries ago, the Dwarves of Çbozrÿae founded a colony on the continent of Vinland. There, they built massive structures of awe and majesty, known as Wizard's Towers. However, they paid a terrible price. In the dark, lurking underground were a sinister breed of creatures, that the dwarves awakened as they delved for more and more resources for their precious wizard's towers. Enlisting the great barbarian giant known as Alpheus, they managed, with the help of the God of Order, to drive the great terror back and imprisoned them, but Alpheus died in the struggle.
Now the dwarves are dwindling, as their numbers are cut down by disease, starvation and the emergence of tigran and frostling nomads on the surface. And 5 wizards, drawn to the land's rich resources, have begun the process of colonising Vinland. But in building their fortifications and spreading across the land, will they awaken a great evil that has kept dormant for centuries?
Now you are playing one out of five wizards, whose objective is to capture Vinlandsaga. Great treasures lie below the landscape, but will you survive on the island itself?
Please be aware that this is meant for multiplay. Playing against the AI really sucks, so it's better that you get a bunch of friends and some pizza on Saturday night, and get down to digging on the island!
