Within a small unknown desert, a large Spanish army faces it's enemy, a group of Saracens. The Spanish leader, Lord Alguera (Al-Gweh-ra) is having peace talks with the Saracen leader, Mossla Devran.
You take control of the Spanish army. Get ready for a large battle - you have traditional units (Infantry, Archers, Cavalry and the occasional Halberdier) while your enemy has cavalry archers, camels and Elite Mamelukes.
This scenario is a battle in a desert on a small map. It wasn't especially entertaining, but it wasn't unplayable either.
I won easily the couple of times I played. While losing isn't impossible, it isn't likely. I'd remove Player 1's walls and towers and some of his archers.
Having two possible endings is a good idea, especially when what you do in the first scenario reveals secrets for the second, but it could have been implemented more creatively than it was. The secret ending seemed rather unsatisfactory.
Map Design: 4
Map design wasn't bad at all, though the very uniform elevation looks rather unnatural. Maybe you could have mixed a little more Dirt 1 with the Desert, but otherwise, no complaints.
It seems like this is the start of what might be quite an interesting story. Instructions were clear enough.
Additional Comments: There isn't really a lot to say about this scenario. It might have been better to advertise it as a teaser.

I started your scenario and the war isn't starting at all! I clicked my hero a thousand times!
If i click my hero from the start nothing happens so you should loop the war trigger or something.
Cheat: Attack ground with onangers where enemy is while in peace.

Thanks for the review pong, when I get my computer back (Not telling the story) I will update all of the things you said. Blueway, make sure you click on Mossla Devran first (Kitabake or Minamoto) then on Belasarius.
One last thing, for my next scenario, would anyone prefer a multiple ending (So far I've planned out 6, but only made the triggers for 2) scenario following the adventures of Lord Alguera, The King of Spain, Mossla Devran and Spanish rebels
Or a scenario that is similar to the board Diplomacy, where you will be engaged in relations with the Saracens, Britons and Franks, also combating Viking pirates? (To win you must either merge with every alliance, destroy every enemy, or a mixture of the 2.)
