You assume the role of Subotai, a wealthy fishing merchant and Governor of Hakido (a prosperous fishing village). Due to your increasing wealth and popularity with all of the people of the surrounding towns, Kitabatake (a rival Governor) seeks to destroy your village by flooding the dam in your territory AND plots to have you assassinated. You must cross through various counties, interact with Kitabatake's spies, locate his "Forbidden City" and assassinate him first. There are 2 charactors who are used as "keys" to unlocking different areas on the map. Keep them safe, and you should be able to progress.

I will start off by saying, great job Inquiz! When I firt played this, some time ago, I played it serval times, and found I enjoye almost ever aspect of it. Well expect balance, since it is quite hard at times.
Creativity was very good. The puzzle and doors made this scn very interesting and not like another scn.
Map design was average, it was good, but I know you could have done better.
Playbiltiy, was very high. I played this scn serval times just to see every aspect of it, since there is so much you can do in it.
Balance, well it was quite hard, it took me some time to complete it only because I kept losing, but I would still say it is beatable and very enjoyable.
the only real areas I can see for improvement are map design, and maybee balance, make it a little more easy so players can still win, but not so easy that they can do it on there first try, but not to hard that it takes them 10 tries just to beat it.

Shadows - Thanks for the feedback. I took into account your comments and applied them to V.2.0 which I submitted for the PlanetAoE Japanese Scenario Contest. If anyone would like THAT Forbidden City, email me at email@example.com and I'll send it to you. Thanks again Shadows!

Okay, maybe I'm in a different dimension, but your instructions to use the 4 monks to convert the sabotuers didn't work. It comes up 'heroes can't be converted'.

Probably in a different dimension laz123 but you are certainly in the wrong game. This is original AoK where monks can convert heroes.

It's nice to see that nine years later, the AoK Community is still playing these early designs :) Thanks for DL'ing.
