This isn't the most advanced campaign but it's a bit of fun. I hope you enjoy it. This is a
scenario about Robin Hood and his Merry Men. It's in no great detail just be adventuresome. The
level has been created in AOK but it will work with TC. All work done by Baggy_Brad of Shang Bang Creations
“The fabulous and fun adventures of Robin Hood” is a FF with some RPS elements. You play Robin, find friar Tuck, kill the sheriff of Nottingham and give the raised taxes back to the poor.
PLAYABILITY: The introduction is funny, but the scenario is not. You take long walks to gather the army in two opposite locations of the map, while you meet only one enemy archer. The people in the west join you only on lower difficulty levels and march around on hard without changing ownership. 3-
BALANCE: The scenario was played on hard and was too easy. The people in the east are enough to win in Nottingham, no strategy necessary, just watch. The player can add some challenge by attacking the enemy near friar Tucks’ base. 2+
CREATIVITY: Some triggers and the presentation of the scenario are creative. 3
MAP DESIGN: The map is of random map quality and consists of broken roads or paths through wood, not enough terrain mix and a lack of Gaia. 3
STORY/INSTRUCTIONS: Very good and creative hybrid BMP showing a screenshot and the mini map of the game together with a picture of the animated Disney production. The bit map replaces well the in game directions and should be consulted before playing. Fun to read introduction screen, the history section is based on the assumption that Maid Marion was a goose in the Disney picture, but in truth she was a fox as Robin Hood. The story was a typical television series kind of plot and you get clear objectives and good hints. Furthermore the site of Shang Bang Inventions provides a nice introduction to the scenario. 4
OVERALL: A scenario with a good marketing department.
SUGGESTIONS: The map needs some challenge along the way and use a custom made immobile units AI for brother tuck’s men from the blacksmith or from another scenario.
IN CLOSING: To recommend for the inexperienced player.

It was pretty good, and I learny how to use relics for victory.Yahoo!
The sheriff's army was too easy to defeat.Maybe you should have given the sheriff more hitpoints(maybe you should have used aok:tc)
Some of the triggers were quite creative, for example the one that makes you get defeated when you cheat with marco polo..and the relic objective
Map Design: 4
Impressive , well atleast much better than what I make
Good humour and presentation awards you a 5 in this category.
Keep up the good work.I would like to see more scenarios from you.
