Needlessly Complicated Legends got over a thousand downloads, and I think it was in the best of AOW2H section for a while, so it can't be that obscure. But for this map, you probably won't need to know much about NCL to play.
Simplified Legends takes four wizards from NCL, and 18 heroes, and throws them into a really condensed version of the world, with some neat scripts and very little room. Also, it's my first map with the uPatch(yay!:D), and I'd like to think it looks as good as NCL did. Though it probably doesn't... I kinda rushed the terrain a bit... but it's a small map. You'll never notice!
One last thing(promise!) The AI is actually better at this map than I thought it would be. Playing co-op against 'em might work, I don't really know... but I'm gonna assume it doesn't. And the AI won't be able to use Black Helmet Man's scripted weapons.
Well, I've been feeling kind of uninspired lately. I'm mostly finished my map for the competition(it needs a few more tests, and the terrain could use a bit more work), so, naturally, I've started to look towards other projects. Anyways, I looked at a map that I'd begun shortly after Simplified Legends, that I'd abandoned. It'll probably stay abandoned...
So I started looking through some of my other maps for some reason. And I noticed that I didn't finish this one area in this map. I looked through all my different files, including the one I uploaded here, and the area was unfinished. (It's the small wasteland area that's the west entrance to BHM's ship/castle/thing.) It's not very important, but I just thought I'd let y'all know anyways.
Aaaand I don't feel like fixing it. So I won't. Now, it's Sunday night and I have some homework to do...*sigh*

No real issues with the game. I don't know what good the bombs were though. Tested them but didn't use them.
DarkHelment was weak. However, the other two AIs put up pretty good resistence at Emperor level.
Interesting ideas in the space ship and protected areas.
Map Design: 4
Interesting underground terrain. Was a pain once domain of darkness was cast though. Strange and useless weapons for the most part in the grave yards, etc...
