When the Wheel Breaks ~ Chapter 1: The Prophecy ~

Author File Description
Ingo van Thiel
File Details
Version: The Conquerors 1.0c
Style: Fixed Force

A nameless Shogun is haunted by the same dream every night: He sees his carriage race through a gorge, fleeing from an invisible enemy. It breaks down on a bridge, and he hears his own death scream inside the smashing wood and metal.

A wise woman gives him a cryptic prophecy: "When the wheel breaks, the shogun breaks." The Shogun fears a rebellion and starts such bloody counter measures that this actually plants the seeds of rebellion in people's hearts.

The story is told by Ronin Akira, who lost his daiymo to the Shogun's suspicions.

His revenge seems out of reach. Then something happens which looks like the prophecy is about to be fulfilled...


Download the campaign file into your Age of Empires II/Campaign folder and the soundfiles into your Age of Empires II/sound/scenario folder.

Recommended settings: Normal speed, sound turned off. You can speed up or slow down Age of Kings by pressing the "+" and "-" button though.

This is a fixed-force scenario, but the difficulty level varies greatly. "Standard" is quite easy, "Moderate" gives experienced players a fair challenge. "Hard" is for people who like to micromanage and use every tactic trick in the book. I hope you'll enjoy this one-scenario campaign!


Thanks to everyone who playtested the scenario! The names are in the history section. Special thanks to Anastasia for providing me with a some great soundfiles.


25th June 2007: Added a bonus zip file with a PDF which tells the rest of the story, and an epilogue scenario.

Jeremiah I'm eager to know what the final result has become, Ingo, since the last time that I've playtested it. I hope you didn't blew it! ;-)

Checking it out! *downloads*
newIdea Very enjoyable, Ingo. Very well done. =)

Needless to say; a must download!

cataphract_fan Just downloaded, and I have to say it is a VERY good scenario...especially in terms of difficulty. Too many scenarios are too easy yet I die regularly on Moderate and even Standard...

Excellent work and I'm amazed Ingo came up with even MORE ideas (I would have thought he had used them all up in his previous campaigns but I guess I'm wrong).
dave_earl I must say, I was sceptical (I don't usually enjoy RPG style games), and arrogant (hell, I thought knew all the new tricks!), but this really blew me away.

Congratulations, Ingo! It is a truly great game.
Stu183 Hey Ingo.

I have a problem. As I get to the ronin camp you have to kill the people in side the tower. When i garrison in the right tower it is fine. If I go in the left it crashes. Any ideas?
Nightfire This is great, I just played the entire thing this morning. I'd have to say that Ulio was your best, however.
