A remake of AoW1 map "River of Life". Made with AoW1 feel, this is a Large size map for 8 players. Requires unofficial patch v.1.4. and "Wizards&Heroes3" mod.
With the help of map converter (by PawelS) and a little patience, the original AoW1 map was remade for recurring gameplay.
This scenario inspired me to make my "Nordic Star" map. So it's time to pay it back. I tried to make a map which may be played with AoW1 feel. There are 8 wizards and player may choose any of them.
In 1175 LIR, Aldor started a campaign to eradicate the pirates in the River of Life region. To gather support, they promised to recognize the race bringing the region into stable governance. They promised to open new trade routes and to annex the region, creating a nation for whatever race claimed the region. Threatened to lose their lucrative pirate trade, the Cult of Storms, Humans and Nomads also sent forces to grab the area, hoping to win legitimacy in the region. Eight races converged on the region, intent on forging a livelihood on the banks of the River of Life.
To install the map copy it to the folder ..\Scenario\Custom
For example on my computer this is C:\Program Files\AoWSM\Scenario\Custom
This scenario requires unofficial 1.4. patch and "Wizards&Heroes3" mod, which can be downloaded here
When I tried to start a scenario, the loading message would come up with the portrait of the selected hero displayed. Then it would hang up. Some of the wizard's pictures are missing as well at scenairo set-up time. I have the preg 1.4 and W$H mod in place.

This may happen only if you have an old version of Wizards&Heroes mod. I remember you upgraded it to v.2.01. But this map indeed needs Wizards&Heroes v.3.00. V.3.00 had many additions that's why I also upgraded all of my maps.
This scenario may not work under older versions of Wizards&Heroes mod. It needs v.3.00.
I hope this will help. :)

Thanks for the post. I missed the change in version for W&H mod. Much improved installer ;-) I will have to re-visit my rating of the Mod after playing this. It might need to be upgraded.
