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!

r3Ed I'm having a problem with the second scenario. When I'm supposed to bring my heroes to King Wellon in the tallest tower after killing all his men they can't climb the stairs due to being on horses. If I click repeatedly they can eventually move up the stairs anyway, nut when they reach the tower nothing happens.

@Dracones; many thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it!

@r3Ed; you have to dismount all your heroes first. You do that by bringing them to the red flag just outside the castle entrance.
TheAOEman57844 It's good but I was stuck in the part where Ori betrays them and used the relic of the sun to make the 4 statues attack them. When I was done with them, I found those hills blocking my way and I didn't find a door. Where should I go?

If you go to the gate at the end of the cave you should get a short cut-scene, after which Immanuel uses his magical orb to blast through the gate.
TheAOEman57844 Not my point, it is in the center of the map

Yeah, that is where the gate should be... what happens when you bring all your units to the end of the road there? Anything?
TheAOEman57844 no nothing sadly
SirJayko Hi Lord Basse,

I am unable to finish the first cutscene, it finishes, it goes to Achievements, but when I want to go back to the Campaign/Scenario menu it crashes :/

Could you mail the files to me? Or upload the files here for the people who can't play the rest of this gorgeous campaing :D

My email adres is ,

Thanks a bunch,
Sir Jayko

That's a common bug unfortunately, but you should still be able to play the second scenario if you go to the Custom Campaigns tab after the crash! If you can't, try creating a new player name and restarting the campaign (using i r winner for the first scenario), and it should work!
Great Deal Why does the game crash whenever i try to play this campaign? I mean i go to the custom campaign tab i click on relics of athalën and then on Secrets of the Old Kingdom an then my game crashes. I don't even get to see the thing with the history tab, instructions tab etc.

Now, I know this isn't "Help & Support Center" but i really want to play this. Here's the error I get:

"Age of Empires II Expansion has stopped working"

and then i go to see the details:

I was hoping you'd knew what the problem is. If you can tell me how to fix this I'll be gratly appreciated.
