The Last Viking Prince - Book 2 (1034-1044)

Author File Description
Gordon Farrell
File Details
Version: Age of Kings
Number of scenarios: 3
It is now 1034 AD and Haraldr Sigurdsson has completed his tutelage under the great Viking prince, Yaroslav, King of Kiev and Novgorod. Haraldr must now go south where he will spend the next ten years in the service of the Byzantine Empire, during one of its most corrupt periods. A brilliant soldier and a charismatic leader of men, this young Viking will rise to the top of the Mediterranean world --- but it will cost him a price that gold could not measure.

This is Book 2 of Haraldr's story. All of the incidents are as historically accurate as possible, based on accounts by the great Icelandic poet Snorri Sturlsson, by writers who were contemporary with this amazing Viking, and by the evidence of modern archaeology.

SPECIAL NOTE:

I have ripped a special soundtrack for this campaign series from the movie THE 13th WARRIOR. The compressed files containing those tracks are labeled #1aHARmp3, #1bHARmp3, and #2HARmp3. They're easy to install, but they may take a while to download, depending on your system.

They're worth it.

Get the full experience. Become lost in the Age of Vikings. This extraordinary music composed by Jerry Goldsmith will make you hear the trumpets of war, and feel the waves under your dragonship...

The third and final installment in the Last Viking Prince series will contain one more small addition to this basic soundtrack package. Enjoy.

Please visit this page to obtain the first two sound files and to read the installation instructions. For the third sound file, which is new to Book 2, please click here.

SPECIAL THANKS

I would like to express my deep gratitude to Debbie Cox-Remme and Jerry Caldwell for their terrific playtesting work.

Sheng This is one of the best campaigns ever. Worth a download!!
Ex-T(AoK PUNK team) What can I say, for the first time this year I truly amazed...I`ve played almost every map in Blacksmith, and even Ingo`s Quest didn`t amazed me as much as this campaign did. The first mission of this campaign is the best map I`ve ever seen in blacksmith....by FAR! True 5.0.
I was kinda disapointed by second and third missions, they were extremly good, but not as good as the first map(4.5 and 4.2)
Gordon,I got few minor suggestions : clear mission objectives screen at least twice during the game, course it`s hard to read though 20 crosed mission objectives, also, more eye-candys would be great...
Basicly, this is the best campaign I`ve seen so far...I give it 4.9 just to encourage Gordon to create even better masterpise...

EXT-T: Thanks for the good words. I especially appreciate them coming from a member of the famous AOK Punk Team! Yeah, I don't know why it took me so long to figure out the necessity of clearing mission objectives. Since scenario 1 can be played from either of two routes, the messages pile up in an especially illogical way and it can be very confusing. I think missions 2 and 3 are better in that regard, though...

Again, thanks!
fredbarbarossa This is an excellent campaign.It is better than the "coming of the unborn king".The triggers is excellent and the objectives and story is very good.The only problem i think that it is in the second scenario.The distant between the town is very small.Please tell me how i can go in oasy west from the cairo.I send my peasants to harvest stone but the enemy attack me.I gave 9.8/10

barabarossa:

Thanks for the great comments! Your words are much appreciated! So here's the deal with stone...

It's probably impossible to actually harvest it. You CAN get the gold (I assume you did) by following the suggestion in the walk through... but I discovered that the towers you're given on the west bank of the Nile are already too effective in taking out the purple war galleys, so I decided to let the stone deposits remain unreachable.

I'm presently tweaking the campaign already. (The indefatiguable Ingo caught a serious loophole in one of the scens and I'm fixing it, as well as adjusting a historical accuracy issue) --- so if you think I should move the stone deposits to a safer location, let me know!!

Again, thanks!
Gordon
