Henry the Fift's attempt to invade and conquer France
has failed. Now, it has cost the life of Six thousand
englishmen. The english are outnumbered Three to One, and have positioned themselves on top of a muddy hill, setting up a wall of spikes to slow down the French knights. Their only hope is that the longbowmen's arrows can even the odds before the knights reaches the barricade and the English...
-From The Battle of Agincort (1415) -Age Of Empires II Conquerors expansion pack
BATTLE OF AGINCORT
I made this scenario because I felt that the Agincort scenario in The Conquerors Expansion pack was not focusing enough on the battle of Agincort itself. The scenario was all right, but this scenario is ONLY the Battle of Agincort*, but you will find that it is better than the one in the original scenario -I hope ;).
*The battle in the campaign where you pass over that mud, and Henry V gives you that "Today is St. Christmas day"-motivation speech. If you were wondering.
1: I've noticed that there is another scenario called "single player" for AoK made by a person named Cloud. This is not me. Thus, this is my first published AoK Scenario.
2: Don't expect a rebuilt Agincourt scenario -this is just a skirmish. However, if I find out how to extract campaign files, I'll do that.
3: Agincourt is spelled wrong, and it's the wrong year (it was 1415, not 1495). Bear with me, I was in a hurry.. ;)

Uses the Conquerors numbers as a basis which is good, if you have just played it. I hope that others will take up the challenge to build other historical based battles as best the can within the limits of the game.
