The Relics of Athalën

Author File Description
Lord Basse
File Details
Version: The Conquerors 1.0c
Style: Mix
Number of scenarios: 7

This is the sequel to Gwyndlegard, its bastard child/spin-off The Epic Adventures of Marvin & Rob, and The Rockspring Revolution. If you haven't played either of them, you might still enjoy this campaign, but the story will make more sense if you play them in the right order!

• A 7 scenarios long campaign!
• Various gameplay styles: pure B&D, Fixed Force, one-on-one boss fights and stealth missions.
• Extensive modding: around 400 new units (soldiers, buildings, eye-candy and other stuff) made uniquely for this campaign.
• An epic in the literal sense of the word - quite likely bigger in gameplay hours than "Gwyndlegard" and "The Rockspring Revolution" combined!
• Emphasis, as usual, on the storyline, humour and atmosphere, although I try to spruce it up with new ideas for gameplay as well!
• A vastly expanded Gwyndlegard universe,
• Music from a wide range of composers, including Ramin Djawadi, Howard Shore, Russell Shaw and Kevin MacLeod.
• A grand conclusion to the Gwyndlegard trilogy!
• Insivible flying bananas!

This campaign starts right where The Rockspring Revolution left off. Our hero Immanuel returns to his home province of Gwynhill, and his soon-to-be-wife Emily. Immanuel longs for peace and quiet, and the opportunity to finally marry his beloved girlfriend, and for a short while it looks as if his dreams will come true. But a campaign isn't very interesting if it's all peaceful and quiet, is it?

Out in the ocean, at a top-security prison, five iron-clad, monstrous ships show up at the horizon. They blast a hole in the wall of the prison, and its most dangerous prisoner escapes. Xaphira, the former Queen of Xioché, is on the loose.

The news travel swiftly to Gwynhill, and the local priest and recovering alcoholic Father Garnas is very troubled by it. For the past two years he has been studying an artifact that was used in the war against Xaphira (as seen in "Gwyndlegard"), The Relic of the Rock, and he has made some astonishing discoveries. He believes that it is one of the four Relics of Athalën, immensely powerful artifacts created by the ancient king Athalën, the man who founded and ruled the Old Kingdom for a thousand years. Father Garnas fears that Xaphira knows of the relic, and that she is coming to Gwynhill to get it. He thinks that she too knows of the power of the four relics: that with them you can shape the world completely as you wish to see it, and possibly live forever. And indeed he is right, and Xaphira comes as a thief in the night and snatches The Relic of the Rock away.

It is now up to you, as Immanuel, to make sure Xaphira doesn't get her hands on all four of the relics.

Gates of the Old Kingdom | An army has amassed | An indoors scene | Up on a rooftop | Into Xioché | A peaceful monastery | Bigass Castle | An abandoned city | A faraway village | Naval action | A quick stop in Arthalien | A monument in the mountains | Mountain stream | Abandoned mineshaft


This campaign requires the 1.0c patch for The Conquerors to work.


Yes you can! For this you will need the AoE2HD Compatibility Patch, which you can download here. More information on how to install this for HD is included in the download.

This campaign is brought to you by StormWind Studios!

Rick Morty Hi,

I have a problem with mod. After installing, reading through history/hints and pressing play loading starts, then returns me to history/hints. I tried everything previously said on forums, from deleting data files to running as administrator. Gwyndlegard, adventures of M&R and Rockspring works perfectly. I have also played 15+ other mods without problem. Also I tried installing on HD version and normal Conquerors WITH 1.0c. On HD it returns me to previous screen, on vanilla game just crashes.
If you could help me it would be greatly appreciated.
Brac301 Hi! Can someone show in a video how to install the scenario? I just can't do it myself, my english is too bad when reading the instructions :p
Akhil_Sadam Lord Basse,
This is the best scenario I have ever played:
I am incredibly bad at playing AOK, but this scenario was just right in terms of play-ability. Till now I simply built an army, and then set them loose on the AI. Your scenario allowed me to re-discover the strategy component of the game!

I was just wondering:
How do you get past Immanuel's demon fight in Last Stand of the Goddess? After finding the key, I am unable to use height advantage or hit and run tactics.

Thank you,
Boujack The campaign is very professional, the graphics are excellent and I love the music and the care that everything is, but to me particularly the last scenerios have seemed very boring. The last map I did not want to play it (and the for i can't finish them, is very insipid), really the scenarios of fixed force are not much to my liking. I recognize it is my pleasure.

My favorites are maps 2 and 4, defending the island on difficult difficulty was really fun and exciting.

My rating would be 6.5 / 10.
TheAwesomeAlex Lord Basse, Hopefully you read this but. im playing the 6th scenario and it has a bug. the units sometimes dont change ownershape whenever in cutscenes. or sometimes the triggers dont happen for cutscenes. Why is this happening?

mikoniko I created an account just to say that it is one of the best campaigns I played in the AOE. Really amazing, very well achieved. Congratulations and thanks
Baddiste Looks really good! However, I can't play it... Each time I click on the OK button for the first scenario, it does nothing but bringing me back to the instruction page. Can anyone tell me how to make sure I don't use UserPatch or get the 1.0c patch? I don't really know how to do it...
mohossam94 what in the name of god does the books i collect from here and there mean??
