The Shogun - Tokugawa Ieyasu


This campaign takes place in Japan from the late 16th Century to the early 17th Century and is based on the the history of Tokugawa Ieyasu. In the first scenario, you play as Tokugawa Ieyasu through his journey as he rose to power. In the second scenario you start off playing as an English man named William Adams, who arrived in the Japans. Then in the last chapter of the scenario, you take command of Tokugawa Ieyasu in the final battle to become Shogun. If you've seen the mini-series Shogun, or read Clarvel's novel Shogun, the story to the second scenario will be relatively similar. I had originally planned a third scenario, but due to lack of time and loss of interest in AoK, I canceled it. It was going to be about Tokugawa's Siege of Osaka Castle, the last threat to his dynasty of Shogun. Hope you enjoy.

The first one is basic music files and the second is background sound files. Unzip them to your main AoK folder and it should unzip to the proper directories.


The Shogun Episode I: The Provincial Wars - 1580 AD

Oda Nobunaga, who controls one third of Japan, launches a major campaign into the western provinces of Honshu, where several powerful and highly independent Daimyos hold their domains. Nobunaga has sent two of his leading generals, Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Akechi Mitsuhide, to lead their forces in a two-pronged invasion of the west. During the past few years, Nobunaga has also run a campaign against members of certain militant Buddhist groups. Known for his cruel and harsh treatment of his enemies without apparent mercy or remorse, he plans to get rid of all Buddhist from political power and the Daimyo of the western provinces of Honshu by pure brute force.

Meanwhile, Nobunaga delegates authority of his lands to his allies. One of which, Tokugawa Ieyusa, he plans to place in control of the conquered Imagawa territory. Though Nobunaga is skeptical since Tokugawa has lived in the Imagawa territories for quite some time...

The Shogun Episode II: Unification of Japan - 1598 AD

Toyotomi Hideyoshi has now passed away, leaving his infant son, Hideyori, heir to the throne. However, Hideyori is too young to rule Japan\'s military forces and a Council had to be developed to protect him from being taken over. Though many lords have pledged their loyalty, one could defy the Council and take advantage of the situation to claim Shogunate.

William Adams, a Pilot Major for a five-ship expedition to the Far East, set sail from Rotterdam on the 'De Hoop' and joined with the rest of the fleet; 'De Liefde', 'Het Geloof', 'De Trouw', and 'Blijde Boodschop', on June 24. His long voyage took him through the west coast of Africa, across the Atlantic to the east coast of South America, through the Magellan Straits, and up the coastline of Chile. During the voyage, the fleet was scattered and several ships were lost. It was now the year 1599 AD, Adams changed ships and waited for the other ships at Santa Maria Island on the 'De Liefde'. Only the 'De Hoop' arrived. By 1600 AD, the two ships headed westward for the Japans, knowing that the other ships haven\'t made the voyage. On their way, they ran into a typhoon that claimed the 'De Hoop', leaving the 'De Liefde' as the only surviving ship of the five-ship expedition...

I recommend that you use the Asian Statue Mod with this campaign. It changes all the Statues into Asian ones for better eye-candy for this campaign.

Also, I would very much appreciate it if someone could give this campaign a decent review by going into a little detail on each category. Thanks. :-)

GregH Need another review of this campain please. I don't think even the author would have rated it a 5.0. Good campain, but I lost interest pretty quickly.
Woad Creator I quite like your game you made... although sometimes get's a bit dodgy at times.

4.8 out of 5.0 Well done.

Thanks everyone for your comments and reviews. This was my final scenario project for AoK. Both me and the rest of the Rome Mod Team will soon release the All Roads Lead to Rome mod, which will be my final project for AoK, so look foward to that. I am now creating projects for Gallactic Battlegrounds and possibly both Dungeon Siege and Age of Mythology when I get ahold of their editors.
Link 377 A while ago, you released a SHOGUN Episode 1 Demo: the hidden island/village or something, near the end you inherit a turtle ship and it says you will see it later at Osaka main dock does this ever actually happen.

P.S. Wicked Campaign

Nope, I took the feature out. I was going to make it like a cheat unit, but for certain resons decided not to do it.

Link 377 Certain resons? It would have been wicked.
Luke Gevaerts You did an admirable job on capturing the Eastern atmosphere, Vampire Slayer. I found it a very enjoyable campaign, and find it a pity that you are leaving AOK.

Thanks for a job well done.
