File Details
Version: Age of Kings
Style: Mix
General Beliarius has set foot on your country! Your homelands, once in full bloom, have been wrecked and weakened by the enemy. Your king has withdrawn to the capital, his last stronghold against Belisarius.

You are Charles, one of the King's commanders. Together with your childhood friend Siegfried, you want to come to your king's aid.

You are leading a small group of determined soldiers through enemy territory. If you can make it to the capital, it will be in your hands to turn the tide of this war.

On your journey, you meet a merchant. He is acting rather friendly, but he has a dark secret. Your life might depend on finding it out... A woman might help you there.

This scenario was designed in a way that it can (but need not) be played more than once. You might find yourself in a slightly different story every time. This includes different dialogs. If the figures don't repeat all the things they said last time, or if they say something new, don't be too surprised. ;-)

The scenario is tough, but winnable. If you have some experience with the game and if you like tactical challenges, give this one a try.

Enjoy, and save often!


Special thanks to everybody who playtested the "Quest" for me. You've been a ton of help!

The story continues in The King's Best Men

Mats Molin This scenario is great!
Constantine XII, this is an fantasy scenario, not an historical scenario. I just wanted to say it.
"The Quest" has great graphics, a good story, and a nice balance between RPG\strategy.
This is the greatest 1- scenario campaign in the Blacksmith!
Congratulations!
Nakul It would be no use to me (or to those of you who are reading this) to go on and on about the exceptionally creavtive and cunning tricks in the scenario. All I have to say is this:

Get this scenario NOW! I guarantee you that you will NOT be disappointed.

Now go and download it! : )

Robert Knight For me it´s a great scenario, without any discussion! Still I got a little bit disappointed comparing it to Ingo´s AoE campaigns for lack of that special "touch" of thrill. And it´s only one scenario!
I can´t wait to download a new, large, misterious campaign made by Ingo van Thiel!
Meanwhile I made "The Crusaders - part II" which is worthy testin by anyone.
Killer Its the best campaign on Earth!!!
Ingo, you´re the best designer i´ve ever seen.
Where can i find your new campaign called The Kings best men???
jeffg006 On the first day I discovered AoK Heaven when I was a simple newbie to AoK, I was browsing around when I found "The Quest". After I downloaded and played it I was completely amazed! I still regard this as the best AoK scenario I have ever played, even compared to William, Warrior of the Sun and others! It even inspired me to begin making my own scenarios and campaigns. I'm just saying that I consider "The Quest" by far the best single scenario I have ever played... And I'm sure nothing can replace that! I EASILY gave it a 10/10 and when I play it today I still give it 10/10! Great work, Ingo!

It seems that Ingo van Thiel has not lost any of his magic in the switch over from AoE to AoK. In fact, it may not be farfetched to say that this scenario may even exceed such classics as "The Tai Gun" and "Budonion Tales". Indeed, this is clearly the best AoK scenario to be released thus far.

Ingo has done it again with a captivating storyline, beautiful scenery, and edge-of-your-seat action that will keep you playing for hours. In fact, I honestly think that he may have significantly raised my blood pressure as a result of playing this scenario. Everything is up to par with what you have come to expect. I could literally spend pages talking about every good point of "The Quest", but I will not go into detail.

As usual, brilliant playability and creativity rule the scenario, with unique twists and tricks at every turn, keeping you on your toes for sure. The Map Design is nothing short of stunning, and it in itself is a masterpiece. Towns, cities, beaches, deserts, camps, and so much more are all brought to life. Combine these with a beautiful bitmap, great story, and perfect balance, and you have an instant classic.

You play as Charles, who has been summoned to appear before the king. You must guide him and his small band of followers safely to the king, along the way accomplishing a variety of tasks. In fact, this part contains the greatest trick I have yet seen for AoK. I will not give anything away, but let me say that it really 'blew' me away. After you reach the king, Charles learns that the city is about to come under attack. He must prepare the defenses, and withstand the attack. I will not give away how it ends, but the final confrontation between Charles and his archenemy is one you will not want to miss.

The main thing that sets this even above his other campaigns is the intensity. I honestly felt like I was actually a character in the story. I was laughing out loud at a few of the character's comments, leaning forward in tension when my city came under attack, grinning at the fate of the Merchant, and desperately trying not to go crazy when the evil Belarus kept evading my grasp...

Simply put, you will not want to miss this scenario! Will Ingo be crowned king of AoK designing as he was with AoE? Only the future will tell, but I believe it looks very bright. My hat is off to you, Ingo.
Tonto_jlmk It's great, but....how the heck do I get the merchant to hand over the gunpowder to take advantage of it?
Zhadu After I get to the capital and talk to the king, nothing happens, and I have no resources and no villagers. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?
Peter Very challenging! Gotta keep creating the pikemen, cavaliers and arbalests! It seemed like there were more than 2 mass attacks from the enemy, more like 5.

Easily one of the most impressive scenario for AOK.

Now, this is what quality is all about.

Simply amazing.
