Version: Age of Kings HD: The Forgotten
Igelior's entry for the Pretty Town Contest 2019

I hope you like power metal, because this scenario is gonna be heavy with Turisas songs. A lot of their songs (especially on the albums The Varangian Way and Stand Up and Fight) are about the Varangian Guard, an elite unit of the Byzantine Empire which was famed for it's combat capacity and loyalty (the latter being especially hard to come by in Byzantine society). The Varangian Guard recruited itself almost exclusively from foreigners, initially mainly Rus' and Norsemen while Anglo-Saxons were dominant later on. In the 10th and 11th century, many Norsemen - even noblemen - would travel far to Miklagård, as they called Constantinople, in search of fame and riches.

You play as one such expedition. Eager to join the Varangian Guard you find that their commander is out of town at the moment, so you decide to explore the city in the mean time.
Further background information can be found within the scenario.

· There is some dialog in the beginning and at the very end but I wouldn't consider this a cut-scene, it just adds a lot to the atmosphere.

· Some gates may be briefly locked while the music is playing, please don't panic.

· Simply extracting the .zip file into your game folder *should* work.

· Tested on version 3.0F i.e. vanilla HD
