All that we know about the life of Diego Mendes de Segura, one of the first Conquistadors, comes from his will made in 1536 and preserved in the archives of the Dukes of Veragua in Madrid. This document is famoust mostly for the description it contains of the fourth voyage of Columbus in which Mendes took part. Little is known about Diego\'s youth. He probably took part in some wars - by the time he appears in the New World he already had certain military experience. The whole episode under Malaga is a pure invention, but something of this kind could have taken place during the war with Granada, the last bulwark of Islam in Spain. Granada fell in 1492, the year when Columbus went to discover the New World. Mendes took part only in his last expedition, in 1503-1504. He did much to ensure its successfull outcome, though in his will he definitely exaggerates his own importance. Mendes was a brave man, no doubt, but a good liar. Most of his later life was spent in courts where he tried to defend his priviledges and income in the West Indies granted him by the Admiral, as well as the rights and priviledges of the Columbus family, with whom he was closely connected. In this campaign we give Mendes a chance to get what he sued for. May be most of the present story is quite qifferent from the real facts of Diego\'s life, but such were the lives of many Spaniards who first took part in the final events of the Reconquista and then in the discovery and exploration of the New World.
Too hard for me, otherwise it would have been brilliant.

This scenario is creative in design but pretty difficult. In the second scenario when i got the swordsmen and philosopher guy the soldiers all tried to walk back to the place where they were. After a bit most of the soldiers had succeeded in walking all the way away from me to stand there. If i move them, they eventually try to go back again. This may be a looped trigger or something i dunno...

They will be at your command when you look to the temple with green monks and plumed archers.
