Crusade ~The Beginning~

Author File Description
File Details
Version: The Conquerors 1.0c
Style: Fixed Force
Number of scenarios: 2
The first Crusade in 1097 marked the beginning of a struggle between the Moslems and the Christians which lasted for centuries and changed forever the way in which the west saw the east. The first of the Crusades was called by Pope Urban II when he addressed a massive crowd at the assembly of Clermont in 1095 urging all Christians to go to the aid of the Christians in the holy land who were being denied pilgrimage to the holy city of Jerusalem, in exchange of this service he claimed that all participants in the holy war shall have their sins forgiven and would receive salvation in death. The effect of Urban's well addressed speech was such that it sent uproar all throughout Europe and people of all ranks, from Knight to peasant took up arms and set out towards Constantinople. The earliest Crusade was known as the people's crusade for no high ranking noble took part in it and was a miserable failure, however the main crusade was much better organized and though the crusaders had many hardships and misfortunes, they marched on gaining one victory after another over the Turks till they finally captured Jerusalem and established a new Christian kingdom in the holy land.

The first Crusade was followed by many other Crusades and the holy land remained a place of religious conflict for centuries after but the fact remains that the first Crusade was the only successful Crusade ever.
The story of the first Crusade is well known to all but very few know the details of the early part of the Crusade. Everybody knows of the great siege of Antioch and about the massacre at Jerusalem but the story of the early half remains greatly unknown and it is this story which I have decided to present in my new campaign -Crusade-~The Beginning~

>A mix of various gameplay elements
>New ideas and tricks
>New kinds of objectives
>Over a 1000 triggers
>Lots of sound and music files
>All characters based on historical figures
>High focus on historical accuracy
>Option to choose difficulty
>Lots of cutscenes to move the story forward

Please download this campaign and let me know what you think.

This was my only Flop. I love cutscenes, But not enough Gametime here. I Like the Fact that I felt like I Was watching a box office-smashing movie, but in the same sense I disliked it. But Dont take any pain in what I'm saying. Its a great Campaign.

Balance: 5
Perfectly fir for novice or veteran players alike.

Creativity: 5
I liked the monks burning idea! :0

Map Design: 5
Must have taken you Hours on end. GReat Work!

Story/Instructions: 5
Anything Based on historical evidence tends to be boring. But when you can make it into a campaign of epic porportions, you can't help but love it!

Additional Comments:
Het_Eendje I've a problem in the second scenario. When I need to defend the camps for 13 minutes (in the easy mode, I don't know if it happens in other modes too), he shut down Age of Kings CE without any error or something. (I've saved it a few moments before he shut down, so if anyone need it ...)

Anyone can help me?

By the way, it is a REALLY good campaign, I've played all Age of Kings campaigns (and the ones of Age Of Kings Conquers Expansion), but this is much better. :-)

jml Too bad it was so good until I got stucked also right after this " defend the camp" scenario. I wish I could have played the whole thing. Since it was very and I mean very interesting...
( I'm playing the Gold edition, maybe that's the reason for the bug... )
