JACK OF HEARTS: Chapter I - An Untold Story



ABOUT: JACK OF HEARTS

A minstrel, called by King Charles VII, will meet one of the greatest captains that France has ever seen during the Hundred Years War, and he will bring back to memory his history since the beginning.


ABOUT: CHAPTER I: An Untold story

The firsts meaningful memories of Etienne de Vignolles, start when he tastes the thrill of killing a man. What happened before, is only foreignness to a homeland without incitements and lots of downed trees!
He's a giant of six and a half feet in height and he's only 18 years old. Under an angry gaze is hiding a hot-blooded Gascon illiterate and a bit childish, but very brave and generous, although sometimes unscrupulous.
He will soon discover that beyond his native land, there is a world for his need, a world of pure adrenaline, deathmatches and legendary feats.


HISTORY:

Charles VI was only 11 when he inherited the throne in the midst of the Hundred Years' War. The government was entrusted under the regency of the four dukes: Philip the Bold of Burgundy; John of Berry; Louis I of Anjou; and Louis I the Great of Orleans, who maintained their grip on Charles until he took power at the age of 21.
During the rule of his uncles, the financial resources of the kingdom, painstakingly built up by his father Charles V, were squandered for the personal profit of the dukes, whose interests were frequently divergent or even opposing. As royal funds drained, new taxes had to be raised, which caused several revolts.
In 1388 Charles VI dismissed his uncles and brought back to power his father's former advisers, known as the Marmousets. Political and economic conditions in the kingdom improved significantly, and Charles earned the epithet "the Beloved". But in August 1392 en route to Brittany with his army in the forest of Le Mans, Charles suddenly went mad and slew four knights.
From then on, Charles' bouts of insanity became more frequent and of longer duration. However, unable to concentrate or make decisions, political power was taken away from him by Louis of Orleans, the king's brother, and John the Fearless, Duke of Burgundy, the son of Philip the Bold.
When John instigated the murder of Louis in November 1407, the conflict degenerated into a civil war between the Armagnacs (supporters of the House of Valois) and the Burgundians.

@ Sayyed Hassaan:

Are you meaning if you install the userpatch 1.4 on your FE mod, the game will run without problems? I don't know... You should Install the patch on the original version of AoE2 The Conqueror and surely you won't have any problems!
firesidecake This used to be a project for a long time. I thought it was abandoned, like many others. Gladly to see that you are still passionate to finish the campaign. Will try this one day, as I no longer have much free time as I used to. But still a compliment on you, :)

Well, is not so bad for a rookie!
Thank you Popeychops for the review!

This is my first work, and I'm happy to receive so high rates!
Unfortunately, my english isn't brilliant and this is a problem... before uploading the scenario, I've tried to find someone to help me to translate all the dialogs, but I've not been so lucky : (
The same thing was for playtesters... I was afraid to upload an untested game, but the regret to wait more time was too big!

My style, as you've seen, is very realistic, often too much, but I like that a player have to think about what he's doing.
In a realistic situation, you can't have a boy who hits trees for all his day, that becomes instantly a flawless killer who defeat everyone in every challenge.
I remember when I played at Diablo I for the first time using the sorcerer: I was dying every 5 minutes! At the beginning everything is difficult, so I put my game in a real context.

This review helps me to fix lots of things, thanks to the reviewer!
D4Ra4Aracks111 Nice scenario,but too difficult. and there is bug when I Save the game,and reload it The taunt Ai doesn't Work,
