Louis XIV, The Great Sun King of France is staring outside one of the windows in his Palace rooms. Looking at the ruins of Orleans, burned down by an angry mob. Revolution has broken out. Well planned and quickly executed. He should have forseen this happening, but has done nothing. In his pride, he did not think something like that could happen.. With a deep sigh, he turns around as somebody knocks on the door. It's his palace guard captain, and as expected he brings more bad news. "Your Majesty, Le Havre is calling for aid. They are surrounded by mounted Revolutionaries." Louis stares at him. "We have nothing available here. Give orders that our population shall hide until help arrives, and abandon the city.". Very well.. Louis goes back to his window. Aramis..he thinks. You are our only hope now. He was sent to explore the frozen lands, and must have heared what has happened by now. You can only hope that he will board his ship in hurry, and sail towards Le Havre. In deep thoughts again, Louis also knows about their problems with Ragnar the Drunk. The troublesome Vikings have found ways thru the ice and snow. We must regain control quickly and rebuild our Empire, or they will surely make use of this Revolution. Chancellor Bismarck of Germany, and Queen Isabella of Spain have expressed sympathy. But can you trust them..and then there's also Shaka the Wild. As his name suggests, you never know what he has in mind..for now he seems calm. But that can change at any time. Welcome to another hand-made story driven map Can you bring our Sun King his former glory back? Here's your start: Spoiler : Le Havre: Spoiler : Aramis with plenty company in the Ice: Spoiler : As you can see, AIs have 3 cities already. You start with 2..in theory That's cos we want some good competition, but do not worry i tried making this map fair Buut..you can be my playtesters, and i would be grateful for any feedback. Revolution units (barbs) can attack if they are mounted, but some have scouting scripts too and are not likely to attack. If they are not mounted, they are stationary and are no danger besides blocking ways. I made saves for Monarch to Deity difficulty on normal speed, with adjusted techs for barbs & AIs for each level. So you can play those without doing changes (known from Nobles Club, adding Archery and stuff). Also adding the wb save, if you want other diffs or speeds you can set up your own game Have fun!
