If there are any bugs please tell me . My E-mail email@example.com This scenario is about robin hood where you start as robin hood and a few archers and you have to kill a militia to ally with john little. and they give you stuff and you have to kill sheriff of notingham, but they have some watch towers around the town and some military units.
This scenario wouldn't be bad if it utilized the aspect of triggers in the AoK editor more (Ex. adding dialogue). Doing so could add character personalities and story depth. The Map Design wasn't too bad, however. I would review it but my buddy ol' pal Red Monk is up to the job I believe.

Playability: The scenario starts off well and is quite a bit of fun, but it's way too short. Just as I was getting into it, suddenly it was over. This could have been a really nice scenario if it went on for another hour or so.
Balance: You gather too many units too quickly and easily, it's not enough of a challenge. Also as soon as you kill the Sheriff (he comes right into your camp and the middle of your men) you win. If he stayed back at the castle and you had to fight your way in to get at him this scenario could have easily received a 4 for balance.
Creativity: Robinhood is a fairly popular figure among AoK designers, so it wasn't all that creative to us him. But the way it was carried out was at least average, maybe better, but not quite worth a 4.
Map Design: The design was solid, a sizable amount of eyecandy and well-designed forests. The only problem was that too much of the map was covered by forest. These were areas you don't use, but should have been used in connection with making the scenario longer.
Story/Instructions: The story laid out at the beginning was interesting and well written. However there wasn't much in the way of instructions, again this is due largely to the brevity of the scenario.
Final Comments: Definitely a solid effort and a big improvement over the previous scenario by this author. Keep them coming. I saw aspects that indicate this author could well make his way into the Best of AoK, one day.
