The Death Valley - the Empire of Deathlord, Master of Darkness and Decay. He has ruthlessly slaughtered the lands to extend his rule, and has transformed cities into crypts of the Undead.
But will Julia, the elven queen and the messanger of life and love, tolerate this? Not while she is alive. And hence, the war between life and death begins.
Turns 25-27:DL casts Haste Domain.DL casts Death Mastery.DL casts Damnation.Then a lvl.20! indep hero,with what looks like every item, proceeds to trash my cities.I quit after that.The only reason I had any cities is because DL likes to leave his frontier towns understaffed.DL had CS V by this point.
Do you feel like starting off with 1 decent city when your opponent already controls the entire map,and is throwing Reapers,Fallen Angels,and Bone Dragons at you over an impassable barrier?Yaka died before I even saw him,and Fangir would have if I wasn't expanding like mad...but expanding like mad leaves you open to aforementioned hero.
It's up to the elves to stop really evil deathgod.Every battle out of the Silmarillion.No new nothin'.
Map Design: 3
Map was well done,and was easy to zip around.Needed varying elevations,though.
Additional Comments:Did you playtest at all?I'm gonna finish this one,just to see if it's possible.I'm tired of people complaining "wahh,it's too hard" as much as the next guy,but when the computer just plain cheats,I cry foul.
