UPDATE June 26th 2016: This final version
contains not many but some significant changes to make it playable (and enjoyable...) also as single player map.
--------------------

The secret of the Runeblades was once meant to be designed as a new campaign for the all new 1.5 Upatch but it was never realised as this.
Hence I decided in 2010 to make a single, huge Epic map out of it with the whole story put together into one map.
In the end it had to become a PBEM map to make most sense.
Playing it alone makes only sense if you play literally all wizards (except maybe Siorlynn and Rimbald - these two could theoretically be set to AI) so I highly recommend PBEM only (as long you find a group of at least 5 players these days :D )

Most of the story and setting etc is explained in the map itself. Therefore I keep things short here.
It������´s beside Descent to Undermountain the most intricated map I made so far with lot������´s of events.
It������´s a classic good vs. evil map where 4 cooperating wizards fight against the prime evil (Saron Neragal - which definitely needs to be played by a (experienced) human) and two other evil wizards (Rimbald and Siorylnn which - as I already mentioned - SHOULD but need not necessarily be played by human).

I worked on this map from 2010 till Jan. 2013 until I quit playing AOWSM. I������´m happy to see that finally Upatch 1.5 was released so that this map was not created for naught:)
enjoy.

PS. this version here works. Meanwhile I couldn������´r resist and had to download the all new patch (so far I had only a 4 year old workbuild on which the map was created) and it turned out yesterday that the map wouldn������´t run on the released patch.
But I managed to fix that problem very fast and now this map here works with the all new patch.)

Additional Comments:
This map shows full potential of UPatch 1.5 and in my opinion should go with the main packege.

As for bugs - from some point of the game spirit and other quests could not be completed.

The bugs presented by events on hex enter that covers quest stone with their radious and also with teleporter which teleport exit is put on quest stone location. They also presented crashes some times.
