This is my first campaign and my first time making my own maps. Scenarios 1,2,3,5 are maps i made so if they look stupid too you hey i'm new at this. Scenario 4 is a random map that i modified a little bit. so enjoy
First of all I have to say that this is a great campaign. It’s fun to play, challenging at some times and easier at others. I really had a fun time playing it!
What lower the score are the map design and especially the instructions. The instructions aren’t bad, they tell you what you should do, but I think that the author could have put down some more time at it. There are some spelling and grammatical errors, and although it’s ok with one or two, at least in my opinion, the author should have done a better job here. Also, there’s no bitmap.
The map design isn’t bad either, but there’s nothing special about it. The author says that this is his first attempt at making maps, and if so, he has done a good job. If there had been a bit more variation in the terrain and some flowers and other eye-candy this scenario would have got a higher score in this category.
As I said before this campaign is fun to play, therefor it gets a high playability rating. I also felt challenged at some times, therefor it gets a 4 in balance too. I couldn’t find any special about this campaign however, so I gave it a 3 in creativity.
This is a great campaign, and I can hardly wait until the author’s next work is released. The best players out there could find it a bit easy, but for all others it should be a nice challenge!

A Gothic Empire? Never existed in history.

Technically, no, the Gothic Empire never did exist. They were just one of the multiple Germanic tribes in Europe at the time. However, they did have much involvement in the Holy Roman Empire, which was also founded by descendants from the Germanic people. So they're related to en Empire, and were somewhat part of the HRE. But you're right, they were not their own empire.
