Gwyndlegard

Author File Description
Lord Basse
File Details
Version: The Conquerors 1.0c
Style: Mix


Gwyndlegard was a peaceful country until two and a half years ago when it's jealous neighbour to the north-west, Xioché, invaded it with a force of thirty thousand led by the military geniuses Count Tengil and the witch Queen Xaphira. After the peace treaty two years ago, Xioché holds most of Gwyndlegard under occupation, save for the last free city to the east, Pumpkindon, where the country's leader Lord Mezenghi now lives.

In the country's southernmost province, Gwynhill, tension is now growing. A sergeant called Immanuel has long wanted to ambush the local Xiochan governor and start a rebellion, and when said governor takes slaves from Gwynhill village, a clear violation of the peace treaty, he gets his chance. Unfortunately his girlfriend is among the ones taken as slaves so the quest becomes quite personal.

You will take the role as Immanuel and his close friends to criss-cross the country, save your girlfriend Emily and free Gwyndlegard from the evil witch's claws in this humorous epic!


FEATURES:

• A giant map with great variety, from green green forests to open plains and snow-covered mountain tops,
• A mix of playing styles including AI-driven Build & Destroy, stealth mission in RPS and criss-crossing Fixed Force,
• A rather epic scenario that doesn't end after an hour or two,
• 965 triggers, for those who want to know
• Partially spoken dialogue (not self-made though, be thankful for that!),
• Focus on story and gameplay; no mods, data changes or overly complicated trigger tricks,
• An overdose of weird Basse humour!

The story continues in The Rockspring Revolution.

The final act of the story can be found in The Relics of Athalën

John Mendl I havent played fully, just till I beat Maruvian at his camp. As far as Ive seens this is great - Good map design, triggers, Decent story and good instructions amongst other things.

The only negative aspect in my opinion is that you have to keep alive a large number of heroes.

Great job, we need more scenarios of this high quality.

Thanks for all the comments folks, and thanks for the review Possidon. :)

@mangustomau,
"i can reach the "possessed sabertooth"(and the 3 leopards and the pikemen and the ship) by using the siege onager to destroy the trees... nothing happens however! and would not call it a bug."

It isn't, you just aren't supposed to go there until later in the game. ;)

"sorry, i forgot to ask about the "militaires buildings in the flagged spot" from the optional objectives.... no matter what kind of facility (archery, castle, tower, stables, etc) or if i build inside or over the flags, the objective is not fulfilled!"

That's because it's an unfulfillable objective, or rather a tip. I suppose it would make more sense if I moved it to the Hints instead though.

"by now, i'm atacking the capitol and xaphyra had call me to talk alone, i did, but i died!!!
ok, than i guess i just needed raze the capitol first... well, but i couldn't fix the second bridge.

so, going back to xaphyra i think that i cheat somehow because the only way i find out to talk without be killed was to build a wall in between them. was this a cheat?"

That's odd. You sure you brought only Immanuel there and no one else, no other heroes, soldiers or even villagers?

"due i haven't finnished yet i will not comment the campaign in details, but it already reached the level of Ulio and Dracula(the 2 "top of the tops" campaigns ever!) in enjoyable, storyline and aweness. in my modest view.
i even prefer urs to Tamerlane and Mcbeth.

tanxs for the marvelous campaign
... and possible little help!

but, all in all the map is one of the bests i have ever played! congrats, Lord Basse! u rule!"

Thank you! Your feedback means a lot to me! :)


@KnightKostas,

"It is amazing how much hard work has been done for this scenario... I bet you've been designing it for months!"

Counting from when I started designing to the release, two and a half years actually! Although the effective time spent designing was quite a bit less. ;)

"It's excelent, with a sweet story, wealthy terrain, great characters, full of secrets and is fun to play."

Glad you liked it!

"1) Why did you make the love story between Jane and Larry and like this?? :/"

Had to add in some black humour somewhere. :P

Also, about your review, try reading the Review Guidelines before posting it next time. :)

@Mark1

"One thing, I have defeated the enemy at Selenir and the mayor will not talk to me with my heroes near him."

Did you bring Magnus McAnthony as well? And Marvin, the militia hero? Those two seem to be forgotten quite often.


@NewDesigner,

"'Arthalian tradepost' from the tribe Arthalien.
On purpose or?..."

That's on purpose. The country's name is 'Arthalien' (similar to say Ithilien, except toally different), and the denonym is 'Arthalian'.

"Dock owner says something like:"You dont need a fishing boat to fish, he sais" Should be says, or is he drunk?"

He's drunk. No actually that's one of my common spelling mistakes, hard-coded in my English. I don't speak English natively see, so many spelling issues are due to the way I learnt (or mislearnt) to write English. This one is because you write "he said", and I then assumed you write "he sais" as well. Which has turned out be wrong. ;)


@Madsmat,

"
It could be nice to see some more weird Basse humor in a new map like Gwyndlegaard

Hope you keep making good Stuff"

I will try my best! :D

Seeing as many apparently run into glitches here and there when not playing as the game intends to, I'm planning on writing a full Scenario Walkthrough for all those who for some reason can't finish the scenario. :)
Spearman Thank you for putting so much work into this campaign, it's really amazing! just got a question 'bout what to do at the bridge to "The lions den", I can't cross it :(

Edit: oh, just found another post about it, i'll do that... again

Thanks a lot for the review Lothar! :)

@Spearman,
Saving and loading the game should work. I know it's quite an obnoxious way to keep the game flowing, so if I can find a way to make bridges crossable directly I'll be sure to update the scenario with it.
CommandoDude I need some help, I'm not sure what to do. When playing the map, the game crashes every time I bring Immanuel to Lord Tengil at Sacharion right as the cutscene starts. It didn't do this the first time, but I had to go back and since then it has kept doing so. I tried reinstalling the game and loading my save point into it but it didn't change anything.

I think that's a sound file crashing. Open the file 'GWG - Teng What NOOO' or something like that, in Audacity, Goldwave or a similar program and save it over the original file. That usually does the trick. If it doesn't work, delete the sound file and run the scenario without it.
CommandoDude I tried both of those, neither worked.

Hm. The only other reason I can think of is that the trigger there changes ownership of the entire town, which I suppose could crash the game if you have too little memory. But I have only 512 MB and it works without trouble. :S
CommandoDude Do you mean RAM? I have 3GB of RAM
