Jas the Mace
I played this game about a month ago but am reviewing it now because it is requested in the review thread.
'Magus' is a good scenario featuring wizards, fireballs and magic effects. Since I like such stuff, I naturally had great fun playing Magus. I liked the spells and surprises. It was quite different from other B @ D's because you could only train feudal age troops against an advanced army.
Balance is really the strong point of Jas the Mace1's scenario's. In the beginning you have a large army which gets devastated by spells. Then you have to destroy a spawn attack by destroying the enemy camp while defending your own town, that is pretty difficult because of the low pop limit and the fact that your troops are just feudal age and the enemy is in imperial age. The use of bomb towers and siege onagers for defence really saved my town, and in the enemy attack I lost one of my main knights. After that it becomes rather less difficult but killing the mages are still challenging because of their spells.
Well magic, fireballs etc are nothing new but I still liked the execution of the spells. One of the best parts was the poem that the monk recites to get rid of the magical barrier, if you made that one up it's really good. The idea of spring in winter as both 'evil magic' and 'good magic' is good.
Map Design: 4
The map is set in wintertime and is mostly snow but some parts are elaborately designed, such as the ruined city, enemy camp etc. Only could be better.
Well there was a story, but it wasn't a good one , it was simply that 'defeat the wizard who killed your father'. Also, the instructions by themselves weren't enough, I had to look at the scouts section for the hints. The instructions were pretty repetitive too.
Edit: changed this rating after looking at the review guide. Since there are story and instructions, I'll give it 4
Overall a good game, especially for those who like fantasy RPG's
