A tribe known as the Xiongnu existed in western China at the time of the Han Dynasty (the last two centuries BC). They divided into two groups, the smaller of which migrated southwards. The majority, however, went north-west in search of new homes. They found their way into the valley of the Volga and, in the second half of the Fourth Century, attacked the Alans (a people related to the Sarmatians, who lived between the Volga and the Don).
After routing the Alans, they then went on to conquer the Ostrogoths and drive the Visigoths westwards. Early in the Fifth Century, they seem to have been reinforced by fresh hordes, and had become so powerful that, by the time of the Emperor Theodosius the Great, the Romans felt obliged to pay them a substantial tribute. Still, the Hunnic Empire could not pose a serious threat to the Empire; its economy was too primitive, its internal divisions too great, and Hunnic skills in strategy and siege-craft too lacking to defeat a sophisticated, organised opponent.
This was an interesting campaign. The story was fairly original, there were no bugs, and it was fast enough paced that I didn't get bored easily. I think that the author of this work has some serious potential. The only real problem was that the AI gave kept resigning. 2
This work is a little too easy for the average player, but I think it would be good for anyone new to this game. 2
While not the most original of stories, or playing styles, it is very evident that some serious effort went into this work. 3
The map design was very interesting. On one hand, the area in the top of the map, was a very well done snow region, with just a few minor problems. On the other hand, the rest of the map uses tons of grass, with good forests, but little other ground terrain. The author put a lot of islands of different sizes into the ocean, but they seem a last minute thing, as the water doesn't really shallow around any of them. 3
Also a big problem point here. While the story is interesting, the instructions are very few, and rather vague. Though many of the enemy troops do say thing when they spot your forces, the whole work is riddled with spelling mistakes and grammer issues. 3
-decent map work
-horrible grammer and spelling
