------------------------------------------
After having sent Her Avatar in the Abyssals planes, Lolth (the demonic Queen of the Spiders) took possession of one abyssal plane and spins Her web in order to destroy all forms of life from this plane of existence, Her final goal being to even absorb to the essence of the Light. Thus what seemed to be a triumph against the forces of the evil proved to be only one bitter victory over what was finally only one attempt at successful diversion. Strange ruins proved to be old gates opening on the unsoundable pits of the Abyssals areas. The ground around was quickly corrupted and of the deadened forces were awaked. Having taken the control of a warrior lizard thanks to one of his spiders, she transformed him into an incredibly powerful creature which taken orders of an reptilian army until there too undisciplined being controlled.
King Lizard (such as it is made call from now on) took the control of the quasi totality of the marshes.

But let us reconsider the last events...

Destiny was overcome and, in the confusion of the battles, was concealed by Korn her invaluable Pallantir. She's going up in the Kingdom of Heaven where she was rewarded for her bravery : she became a powerful Archangel, representing protective Divinities. The incarnation of the Spirit of the Older appeared to her in dreams and delivered this message to her : "You must go down again to fight against the Entity which hides behind the mask of that which is made call Lolth, the Queen of the Spiders". "You will help of one's best the elfic witch who is called Lonodia, because in her resides the only hope of redemption for this world".

From the will of the Older, Helena became the incarnation of the Death from this plane of existence. An old legend tells that on her destruction, the survival or the destruction will depend on all forms of life on the surface of this ground.
Dominating the scraps of what remains of spirit of the magician called Korn and having cursed Winter, become the Snow Queen, Helena wants to transform into undead creatures her enemy in order to help her to fight against the Queen of the Spiders, Lolth the dark divinity.

The spirit of Korn yielded in front of the power of Pallantir... Her spirit rocked in the madness and she became a caricature of herself in the shape of a powerful werewolf. Helena could without difficulty of destroying an adversary as weakened, but she has considered as it would be more advantageous to her to control her former rival and to use her against her enemy (without being however done much illusion on her utility). Very right Korn, more commonly called the Animal from now on, pourrat it to slow down the flood uninterrupted of the forces armed led by the Queen with Darkness in person.

The War of the Avatar changed Lonodia much. Julia never returned, the violence of the war and the despair as of her deeply disturbed the heart of the small elfic princess. Drawing from the most wild energies of Nature, she became stronger. She understood that to fight against the forces of darkness no compromise had to be made. Not having been able to enough push back quickly the arrival of the Avatar of the Goddess, Lolth the Queen of Darkness, Lonodia is on the point of delivering an unequal combat against a Force baited to her loss and the destruction of any forms of life.

During this time, in North, Bubble a apprentice magician particularly gifted, having natural affinity with the magic of water (having succeeds in calling upon as of her youth the powerful elementals of water), seemed to have a promising future. Unfortunately the arrival of the black Goddess and the conjunction of supernatural forces exceeding the understanding leave only little hope...

Conditions of Victory : Kill Lolth

Additional Comments:

I have been enjoying this map for some days now and I cannot believe nobody has rated it yet - maybe certain world championships are to blame? Anyway, this is a great map in several ways and although there are always some minor shortcomings, there can only be one appropriate rating. There can be no doubt that this scenario represents the fruit of months of hard work: What we get is a stunning landscape, an elaborate and coherent storyline, lots of non-conventional quests, custom-made portraits... To make it short: Here's a map which offers some true depth - you can lose yourself in it for days without shame. Finally, there is something which I personally found very appealing: Namely the focus on the forces of nature and life as represented by the elves. Being a Tolkien purist I cannot but bow before the effort made and the result achieved. One word: superb! I am looking forward to additional sequels and prequels.
kaskoid Absolutely stunning map. One of the most gorgeous ever made. However much time it took, it was worth it.
cannonstrike From everyone's comments this is an awesome scenario. My problem is that I keep dying on Turn #1. My wizard lands outside of the playing field and promptly dies. How do I avoid this?

gerd I'm in a dead end situation and hope to get a hint. In the quest Labyrinth of Death I'm in a room with a Leprechaun and a sign is saying "Give your offering and pray one day". My hero is carrying all rings (emerald, sapphire and diamond). I tried to place the rings at the sign or the teleporter and was waiting one day but nothing happened. After 99 days of waiting the game ends!
