The Byzantine Empire Under the Rule of Justinian I

Author File Description
Belisarius
File Details
Version: Age of Kings
Number of scenarios: 11
This is a campaign about the Byzantine Empire under the rule of Justinian I. Most of the campaign you are trying to rebuild the old Roman Empire. You fight the Persians, Vandals, Moors, Visigoths, Sclaveni, Bulgars, and a couple more. The campaign is very close to being 100% historically accurate. This is my first campaign, the maps are modified random maps but they look good. I don't now how to do triggers so if you think you can help me with them contact me at my E-mail address Pvt_langley_148pvi@email.com. Feel free to comment, as I will try to improve the campaign as I get responses.

The Byzantine Empire Under the Rule of Justinian I

This is a B&D/FF Campaign which consists of 11 scenarios. You are Belisarius, a byzantine general and you shall defeat the enemies of the empire.

Story/Instructions
Good! you allways know what to do next (You do allways just have one objective/scenario). There is also some historical notes for each scenario, even if these are a bit short.

Playability
THis campaign has 8 build and destroy scenarios and 3 Fixed Force scenarios. The B&D scenarios are boring. It feels like if you played the same scenario over and over again. Alll you do is build a little town, then buid some cataphracts and then attack the small villages around you. The Fixed Force scenarios are funnier, even if you easy crush the enemy . I will give the playability here a 2,
only because of The FF scenarios.

Creativity
You start with three villagers and some Cataphracts and your goal is to destroy enemy villages.You do the same thing again and again and after a while you know how the next scenario will look like even if you haven`t played it.That is not very creative. As allways (in this campaign), the FF scenarios looks better. You are fighting in a city, you besiege another city and yoou break a siege. Good! However, there are to few of these scenarios.

Map Design
The best part of this campaign. The maps are random maps. The creator has also put a lot of cities on the map. The cities look actually very well, especially Constantinople. Very Nice! But the countryside doesn`t look as it had been
modified at all, so i will not give this a 5.

Balance
This is simply far to easy. You start with approximately 20 Cataphracts and Belisarius, so it is not difficult to repell attacks with archers and spearmen.The FF Scenarios is also too easy.

My suggestions
1. Give the scenarios a better balance. Either you do the byzantines weaker or else you strenghten their enemies.
2. Try to create a biger variation between the scenarios.
