This map has predominately custom heoroes and items. I would like some help with scripting if anyone is interested, however, I think players will enjoy this map because it offers several unique experiences to peoplpe who are willing to explore. My e-mail is rightwingcapitalist@yahoo.com if anyone would like to help with my ideas, I would also appreciate any comments, and (time provided) would be willing to play this map on-line with anyone who feels they might have improvements to offer.

The map surface resembles Europe with the cities placed out and named correctly. Unfortunately there hasn't been much done to improve the look of the map, as its basicly just flat grassland. There are a huge number of heroes made from real people, but it seems the creator went a bit out of hand here... Historical persons are mixed with movie characters, actors, porn stars etc, complete with pictures and all... Well, aside from that, I don't see how tha AI can be competetive on this map since there are so many resources around.

I don't recommend this map for single play, unless you feel a deep urge to have Ron Jeremy the Dwarf fight it out with Darth Vader on the grassy fields of France. That might be incredibly fun in multiplayer though...

I should probably explain that I usually play this game Hotseat with friends, so that it might not work as well on single player. Also, with regard to the terrain, map details, or scripting, I would appreciate the help of anyone who would like to offer. We typically regard this as a boardgame via computer that works well with beer and pretzels. I welcome comments like those from Magog that will help me improve future submissions, or correct defaults in this one.

OK, so I have only played this scenario once so it may have been lucky but I thoroughly enjoyed this scenario in single player mode and it wasn't that easy. I played Ceasar and it took me a while to get past all the independants raiding randomly and at the same time a couple of the computer Emperors were taken out so I thought, oh, dear, no challenge as they will not build their empires. However the four that survived were all powerful by the time I got going and the map was split evenly so was a good brawl in the end. The bits I did like were the characters and items from movies etc and movie places encouraged exploration and I did chortle when I enlisted Han Solo on the way to Coruscant to take out Vader with a strangle attack... More maps like this please!!
caius75 I have made an up-date to this map, available here:

It includes up-dated map design, and a slew of events both scripted and semi-random, as well as customized quests for all 150+ heroes.
