Elric of Melniboné - The Fortress of Org

Author File Description

File Details
Version: The Conquerors 1.0c
Style: Role Playing Strategy
This is my first ever map created with full use of Triggers, and I am indebted to everyone on Age of Kings Heaven who helped me with various problems.

It is far from expert in its range of features, but I have spent a lot of time attempting to make an intense and hopefully enjoyable dungeon experience, with elements of RPG, strategy, and extensive commentary/dialogue thrown in.

Here is an in-depth summary of what to expect...


- Make your way through the Fortress of Org to locate your trapped wife Zarozinia.

- Dispatch Duke Vermin's sorceror underling, Stiljin the Everseer.

- Get revenge by slaying Duke Vermin and ending his tyrannical reign forever.

- Escape the fortress with your wife, to return to the safety of her home city of Karlaak.


The main character Elric and the world in which he lives are based on the books by Michael Moorcock, including his wife Zarozinia.

All other character names have been created for this scenario, and are not an accurate representation of any Moorcock storyline.

Thank you to all those on Age of Kings Heaven for helping to get this, my first fully triggered scenario, completed!



You are Elric of Melniboné, last in the line of sorceror lords of Imrryr. Your name is infamous and dreaded throughout the Young Kingdoms, for your reputation is a sinister one. However, the paths of Fate have also reserved a righteous role for you to play, and you are often the unexpected deliverer of the free peoples.

On this occasion however, your motives are much more personal.

Duke Vermin, the self-proclaimed Master of the realm of Org, has risen to power in the East through tyranny and domination. Following a premeditated ambush by a band of his henchmen, your beloved young wife Zarozinia has been taken captive by the Duke, and imprisoned in his great Fortress.

You do not know her fate, but you know the Duke's motives - he craves possession of the one object that will set him on the path to unstoppable supremacy - your demon sword, Stormbringer.

This mighty blade, possessed by a hellish entity, has the power to drink the very souls of its helpless victims, as it cleaves and thrusts with a mind of its own. It is also a weapon on which you, a physically weak albino, rely for much of your strength and vitality.

Zarozinia is caught up in Vermin's twisted schemes of dominion, and you are compelled to plunge into the darkness of her terrible Fortress prison to rescue her and deal once and for all with her crazed kidnapper.

You know very little of what lies within the looming black walls of Org's dreadful citadel, but you are convinced that nothing awaits you that cannot be drained of its soul in the name of your love for your wife.

Calling on the protection of your patron demon Arioch, and with Stormbringer wailing a sickening death song as it hisses from the scabard, you advance on the castle gates...

Arfazm Great! I love dungeon RPGs! I love this because everything had been worked on, no room was empty or just had a few things to fight. They all had text, triggers and a few jokes here and there.
My favourite character is Mellanesh the mighty- "a deep growling can be heard from above" reminded me of my cat which made me laugh lol.

I couldn't work out how to pocket the gold in the room with the gold mines however, but it is a great rpg, and im proud to be the first downloader! And you should be proud of your work!

Thanks so much for the feedback! I am proud of it because I spent a lot of time on it, and I agree there are definitely things I could make easier.

In fact, that gold collection part is one of the most troublesome aspects of the level. Take note of the first point on the Hints list, it is essential!

Did you complete it?

Arfazm Alas, no, i tried many many times to kill the man who summons the wolfs then the towers, but kept dying, I'm making another attempt today lol and hoping to get further. I just found it hard to kill both towers when on low life. But i like a challenge!

I'll tell you when i've finished it

Jas the Mace1 Fun Scn. good use of triggers. I also was having a hard time with the wolves and towers. Then I went back and got the two prisoners, but the boat didn't work. It said 200 gold for the boat but I never got any gold in the Scn. I had to smash a few walls to get them.
Overall a fun game...good work!

Struggling on the first Boss I see. Well just realise that everything is controlled by his power, so once he dies...

I don't know what your problem was with the boat - if you have 200 gold stockpiled, you can bribe it. You have to find the gold elsewhere on the map.

Good luck!
Dantares IV Or type Robin Hood. That's what I did. :p
Jas the Mace1 I found piles of gold on the ground but without a villager they do me no good...I also destroyed things and tried to get the relic(killed everyone but no prize)...

Hhmm, that was my main concern, in the entire level.

OK - the first point on the Hints list is use LEFT click to find things, discover hidden things, etc.

You want gold - so LEFT CLICK on the gold! Once you find the right pile, you will pocket some.

Apologies if this should have been clearer...please carry on!
wG KaDaFi fun scenario i didnt find any gold in it so i had to break the walls i missed a big part of the scenario but i managed to complete it anyway :P

Can I ask your opinions - should I have some hint text come up when you walk up to it which says something like:

*left clicking on the correct gold pile would steal some*

I wasn't going to include things like that in-game, but this Gold issue is clearly a recurring problem.

Also, I have edited it so you can no longer rescue the heroes by getting to the wall! Though this updated version has not yet been uploaded.
