The Tale of Minothar is the story about what happened in Middle Earth after the fall of Sauron. Although this scenario is based on JRR Tolkien's books, most of the names don't refer to the characters used by him.
This is the preview of my upcoming campaign The Tale of Minothar. It gives you an idea how the campaign will look like, and what the story will be (although a lot more complicated than this one). The preview has also a sound pack and 2 music packs. When selecting the link doesn't work to download the files, try right clicking them, and select save goal as. Soundpack soundtrack 1 soundtrack 2
Please download this, each file is approxematly 3Mb. They add feeling to the scenario, you'll experience it in its full glory.
I won't tell you anything about the story, it's for you to guess what it will be, and I can say that this scenario only reveals a small part of it.
Please send feedback and suggestions to Rodrigo
This scenario IMHO is one of the best I have seen. It tells of a classic tale wrote from the famous Tolkien, who created such titles such as the Hobbit..and the Lord of the Rings.
PLAYABILITY: I found that this scenario created a comfortable setting, beautiful design and a interesting aspects. Therefore, I found myself having no problem playing this great scenario serval times over.
BALANCE: This is the shaky area of the scenario. It all depends if you do some of the side quests, if the scenario will be difficult for you. If you (for example) help the villagers in the beginning of the scenario, you will recieve a small army for travel.
CREATIVITY: Interesting in some aspects, and in some other aspects was not interesting. Such things like dark areas or cursed areas..which you are not allowed to enter..were interesting, but also annoying at times. The dried up river, and the beautiful swamps were a creative way of creating such different ideas.
MAP DESIGN: Absolutely wonderful. Not many flaws, though some areas were not of beauty, most were creative and great looking regions. Such areas like the dried up river, the swamps and the beginning town with the man walking on water. Much effort was put into this map, as I can tell..and I must say it looks wonderful.
STORY/INSTRUCTIONS: Of course, what do you expect me to say. This story was based on something wrote by Tolkien, changed into the AoK world. I found myself involved, and very curious what would happen next. The intructions were very easy to understand. They explained what to do, and how to do it. There was even sub-quests on the intructions, along with a item bag.
Overall I would say this is one of the best scenarios I have played. A most impressive improvement from his previous works. SO download this, try this great scenario and be amazed.
