Gilles le Breton

Download File Post Review Post Comment
Author File Description
Bretonnian Lord
File Details
Version: Age of Kings
"Gilles le Breton" is a quick, 15-20 minute scenario I made mainly to tell the prologue of the beginnings of Bretonnia. For those of you who do not play Warhammer, you probably have no idea what I'm talking about, but this scenario is half game, half computerized retelling of the legend of Gilles the Uniter. I will be making multiple scenarios, each one telling another piece of the legend, so despite the fact that this particular scenario is fairly short, not all of them will be.

This scenario was geared towards Warhammer players, and for those who don't play it, this will probably confuse you somewhat. But it provides some quick, fun entertainment, some tactical challenge, and a basic knowledge/history of Bretonnia.

Hope you like it!

************************************************

Long ago in the Old World, in the lands that had been discovered and abandoned millenia ago by the Elves, human tribes began to settle the area that would eventually become Bretonnia. These tribes quickly became civillized and were very proficient and skilled in the riding and taming of horses, giving birth to the tradition of warriors mounted on horseback, the first Knights.

As the Bretonni, as these tribes were called, grew stronger, they began to build powerful castles and walled cities, and maintained armies of Knights and Peasant militias. This was necessary, for the Bretonnians were not alone: they were surrounded by foul and vicious monsters, such as the Orcs, chaos-mutated Beastmen, and Undead abominations that served the will of evil necromancers. The Bretonni fought valiantly against the monsters roaming their lands, and for a time, were successful in maintaining peace throughout their territories.

After many years however, increasing Orc attacks began to overwhelm many of the Bretonnians, who had not unified as a nation but were still independent states and cities. Only the strongest of these Dukedoms survived, and even they did not last much longer than their doomed bretheren. One by one, the Lords of the Bretonni fell as their lands were consumed by fire and death as the great maw of the Orcish hordes spread throughout the lands.

But in the city of Bastonne, a young Lord named Gilles would rise up to lead his people to greatness. Together with his long time friend Thierulf and the famed Landuin of Mousillon, Gilles set out to rid his lands of the Orcs or die trying...

This is actually not bad. Good work. Keep it up Bretonnian Lord. I would like to see more Warhammer orientated scenarios from you. How about the siege of Middenheim? Or the wars against the northern tribes?

Thanks. For the time being, I'm planning on finishing up my Gilles le Breton campaign before I do any other scenarios. The Siege of Middenheim does sound like a good idea though, I might do that!

Hey Bretonnian Lord. Just a question. Do you have the expansion pack for Age of Kings? Because it would be good to see some naming. Also, here is the link to the first and only siege of middenheim scenario already released... Strangely enough the scenario is by the author, Gilles Le Breton. :-p

Anyway if you were thinking of recreating it (I am indeed trying to -though at a more "advanced" level) that would be great as I rather enjoy the stories behind warhammer and to see another level of Middenheim come out would motivate me to complete my own.

Unfortunately, I don't have the Conquerors expansion. Wish I did, because then I could play that Middenheim scenario and see what it's like (D'oh).

Okay, so stick around Bretonnian Lord, buy the expansion pack (shouldn't be too much), make more scenarios, and visit the forums (link below). ;-)

I will review this scenario so that you may get more feedback on it. However don't expect to see this in a few weeks -but you never, could be even sooner. ;-)
THX 1139 This is a great scenario that I have played several times (though I'm a very poor player and haven't finished it yet). Good story and map design.
