The Successor - Act Two: Initiation

Author File Description
panel
File Details
Version: The Conquerors 1.0c
Style: Mix
Number of scenarios: 2
Screenshot:


*** This scenario received the awards for Best Gameplay, Best Story, Best Score and was named "Release of the year" in the AOKH Game of the Year Awards of 2013 ***

It was the year 1369. Four years had passed since Krall, formerly known as The Successor, had been crowned as king of Ravenia in the never-ending cheers of Kron citizens, after the demise of the evil Fanarian governor Willan. However, only half of his father's land was now free from invaders and war. The other half of Ravenia, the Sylvanian province, was still under Tugai dominion and Sylvanians suffered every day at the hands of the brutal barbarians from the steppes...

INSTALLATION
VERY IMPORTANT: To experience the game as it was meant to be played, make sure you have the files from Act One in your installed folder, because the sound files found there are used extensively in this second installment. They are very important, especially for the cinematic moments, so please take the time to include them! You'll find act one available for download >>>HERE<<<

In order to install Act Two, copy the .cpx file in the campaign folder of your Age of Empires II the Conquerors root folder, and the sound files in the sound/scenario folder.

The recommended settings for playing this game are: a resolution of at least 1024x768, normal speed, music off. Using other settings might ruin the game experience. While playing, make sure you always have "chat to everyone" selected in the taunts section. It is vital for the taunt-based moves to work later in the game.

FEATURES
1) A much stronger emphasis on the RPG aspect. You'll control one unit most of the time, improving his skills, stats and equipment throughout the game. In addition to that, the usual fixed force battles, puzzles, etc.
2) The game contains two scenarios. The first is playable and the second is a cinematic. The total gameplay time is over 6 hours (probably a lot more depnding on how much you enjoy exploring). There are around 1900 triggers in total.
3) A huge map featuring improved map design compared to Act One, including an updated and playable version of the city of Hansbrok (rated 4.7).
4) A storyline that builds up on the First Act and sets the stage for the Final one. Old and new characters, non-linear narrative with lots of twists and turns, lots of cutscenes.
5) Tons of side features and easter eggs. Remarkable interactivity (for AOK standards) in terms of character improvement: improving stats through exploration and quests, economy system, levelling up that changes character's appearance/equipment, learning useful skills and special moves. Almost every single NPC in the game (there's lots of them) will talk to you.
6) An extensive and immersive soundtrack in the vein of the previous Act.

CREDITS are to be found in the readme file. A special thank you goes to Excelsior, Shieldwolf23 and Khan Ivayl, for their contribution to shaping the game, and to Blackforest Studios for their support and for being awesome in general.

Thanks for downloading. Please comment and review, I am always looking for feedback :)



UPDATED 31.03.2013 fixing some bugs and balance issues. Related to the change view bug - there's nothing I can do about it, your best bet is to reload and try again, close all other applications running in the background or play on a more contemporary machine. With a pentium I3 processor and 4gb of RAM, I've never encountered any crashes while testing. Can't guarantee for anything lower than that.

Wailan Waillace 1) You can be mounted to find the treasure
2) You Must go to *that direction* as far as possible.
3) Take care for where you go,since panel placed a time limit if you go there,unless you follow one of the hints(ironically located in "scouts" tab)
4) Be sure you found all the stones and that you talked to that guy in Hansbrok,otherwise,you won't find it even if you stand in the rigth place.
Wailan Waillace Well,I think that there isn't anything that I could say that wasn't said yet,but The Sucessor is one of my fav. scenarios of all.Not only bcause i like the RPG style,but the history,the music,the characters,all them are involving,and the last part of the trilogy is making me very excited,just want to see what will happen now,and what the so-called "Panel the creator" have to send.Must say I got really mad when I saw the final of the scenario,and I was about to write a huge text to tell how horrible the end was when i saw there was a cinematic after it.

It changed the hole thing.

I got surprised when I saw the narrator,and started to think: "whaaaa?HOW???".But,when *that person* was ambushed,and when *that guy* took *that stuff*,I realized all the rest of the cutscene.
Well,I kinda knew that since the end of part 3,but anyway...

But that only got me more depressed.My happiness only came with the aftermatch screen.:D

Now,we can only wait,hope and speculate about the final.Here is what i SUPPOSE that will happen:

1)The last scenario will take place at Donaria,but there is a little chance of going to the fanariam empire
2)The fanarians will strike again(remember the prince that krall left free)
3)We will control Vallar,but there is chance of playing with krall too(and a minimal chance of the hero be Tarran).
4)A hero that we do not expect to die will die
5)We wont see tugai anymore(obvious)
6)Zeno may appear(HUURR HU HUU HURRR...HUUUUR)

Tarran is a bit less important character in my opinion.The only moment he really shines is in the sniper moment in act 1.(unless to who played with the SUPER TARRAN.Then he is worse than the cobra car :P)How about he do something that may decide the fate of ravenia?

Well,this is it.Just waiting.Panel,plz,warn us when you start doing the scenario (maybe i could help test the scenario,or do something else...)

Oh,and that guy is rlly working 15 years in a scenario? XD

@Warzone500: I was going to reply but I think the above user has explained the stones quest in enough detail (thanks for that). However, I'll need to ask you to update your profile with a valid email address, I tried to mail you and it bounced back. It's very IMPORTANT so moderators can reach you if need be so please do it as soon as possible.
Warzone500 @Willian: Thank you very much i've been trying to find that forever.

@Panel: At the risk of sounding ignorant *again* can you tell me how to fix that I don't know how.

MinoBarbarian Man,i'm confused i tried to find the necklace of the woman talking with the npcs and explored all i can, and not found this necklace.
firesidecake I can't find the five ancient stones. Please help!!

Another question: How can I have the alternative ending? I've played this scenario for several times but havent figured out yet. This is such a great campaign and I really want to watch it. Thanks.

firesidecake, the stones are scattered throughout the land, so you will have to explore it thoroughly. Some npc's will also give you hints on some of their locations.

There is no alternate ending to this. However, there might be one in the Third Act (if I ever get around to it).
