Welcome to fascinating journey to the Valley of the Gods!(updated file)
Loth the Goddess of the Dark elves is known as the most Evil Goddess of all. This is the Reason that the other Gods, and especially the ''Council of 4''(Moradin,Ehlona,Heironeous,Yondalla) do not want her among them. The 4 wizzards have casted a spell that does not allow Loth to enter the valley. Loth Filled with anger Found help on an ancient Nymph named Drusilia. Drusilia controlls an army of travelling Humans(Nomads). Loth hoped that Drusilia would enter the valley but the 4 wizzard's casted again the spell to block her entrance to the valley too. So Loth and Drusilia send their best heroes : Matron Malice, and Crystalist in the valley to find a way to break the spell... The rest of the story depends on your way of playing...
You will find many teleporters on the map that will take you to the Temples of other Gods.
Find the colonies of many creatures, do what some of the other Gods ask you and they will help you.Some of them might attack you so the you should fight back.
There are many things you can do so i just leave it to you.
For Singleplayer you should play with Loth
(there was a small mistake in the quest given by the god Boccob. Now i have updated the file and it is ok)

Here is the list of the Gods that take place in the story and a few information about them.

LOTH: Goddess of the dark elves. (Evil)
DRUSILIA: Goddess of some humans named Nomads (Evil)
EHLONA: Goddess of the elves (Good)
MORADIN: God of the Dwarves (Good)
HEIRONNEOUS: God of Humans (Good)
YONDALLA: Goddess of Halflings (Good)
NERULL: God of the Undead (Evil)
BOCCOB: God of Magic (Neutral)
HEXTOR: God of Orcs and Tyranny (Evil)
PELOR: God of the Sun (Good)
OLIDAMMARA: God of trickery (Neutral)
ERYTHNOUL: God of Slaughter (Evil)

Good luck i hope you will enjoy the map

Swolte the reason the stage is passworded is that some of the events should not been seen by the player and some places of the map also. You have to see them during playing and there is a reason for that...

I enjoyed a lot playing this map,although i had do play it many times in order to win.

Balance: 5
The balance is great.

Creativity: 5
I liked the idea with the temples and colonies, good job

Map Design: 5
The map is very nice and especially some places like the temple of Nerull and the land of the immortals are really impressive.I think it could be even better if the map was XL

Story/Instructions: 5
Great story,keeps your interest up

Additional Comments:
I think here was something wrong in the Quest of God Boccob. The quest asks to rebuilt 4 towers, but i only built 3 and the quest was succeded.Generally great job one of the best scenarios i have played.I played it in singleplayer as well as in a CoOp vs AI game and both were great.I would like it even better if i could pick more starting races.

I Thanks for the review. If you think that the map is hard, you can play with an other player against the PC (One player Loth and one Drusilia) and if you can not find someone else to play with You can play both Loth and Drusilia at the same time. The map is very hard and that's because this is how I like the game best and i think it makes it more interesting. Of course it is tested and you can win on a singleplayer game but not easily... Thanks for the comment about Boccobs Quest. It is true that there is a mistake there.The quest is succeded if you built 3 specific towers sorry for that.I have updated the map so now the quest is ok

This is the second map i am playing by this author and this one was way better. Very intresting playability

Balance: 4
Good balance. The only problem was that in the begginning of the scenario it is very hard to stay alive at the emperor level but later it is well balanced

Creativity: 5
Nice quests,events i liked it a lot

Map Design: 5
A very beautifull map

Story/Instructions: 5
The story is not too large which means it is not boring.Very intresting especially for DND fans...

Additional Comments:
Good job
rat_peddler A great map. The other reviews pretty well reflect my thoughts on it as well. It was difficult to get established esp when my one ally got killed pretty early. This would be a good two player against the computer scenario.

I played the "average" and it took my 325 turns to finally grind out a victory.
