Jones Blond
and the Sacred Ring



This scenario is made on a 25x25 map, and was in the beginning supposed to be my entry to the Minigame Competition. I later got out of ideas and abandoned the project, and became judge of the competition, and let the scenarrio gather dust in the archives. One day I picked it up again and decided to make it a birthdaypresent to my design team, StormWind Studios, whose birthday is today - the 13th of August. Happy birthday SWS!

The Sacred Ring, a ring that is given only to the Emperor of Valcabimba when he is crowned, has been stolen by a mysterious person. Since all other agents - even the ultimate disaster Johnny - are on duty on various locations, the Agency is forced to send their black sheep to Valcabimba - Jones Blond.

Tall, handsome, a gentleman. That's how most people would describe him - Jones Blond, Agent 003, the greatest agent of all times... At least, that's how he wants people to describe him. In reality, Jones isn't as he described himself. He's got long, messy dark hair, he's everything but a gentleman, although he's not mean, and he's not handsome. Despite the name, Jones Blond, he's all but blonde. His last name was Blonde when he was born, but he changed it when he became older. He hates misspellings of his name just as much as he hates to fix up his hair.

Jones was taken in as the third agent in the agency. His scores where third best. His brother came on seventh place. A total of fifteen agents where taken into the agency, out of 500 contestants. But ever since then, Jones's career has crashed into pieces. He has had only a few missions around the world while all other agents has had lots of missions. His brother became the most famous agent of all times. His name is not neccesary to mention here.

This is an RPG scenario, with the end made as a mini-FF. the style is basically the same as in my Sven's Quest, but the theme and idea is different.

You play with one unit - Jones - throughout most of the scenario. You can pick any difficulty you like, but they will only make differense in the end.

This is only the first scenario about Jones Blond and his adventures. I can tell already that there will be at least one more scenario with Jones as a main character, and one where he takes part in one of five scenarios.

Since I'm too lazy to make a ReadMe file, this is the way to install (the ordinary way, but for those who dont know it it might be helpful)

.cpx goes to 'Campaign' folder
.mp3 goes to 'SOUND\scenario' folder

The folders are located at:
Your Harddrive\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires II\

Also, in case the soundfile "JB - wrong answer" crashes your game, as it did with Tanneur (not with mine though), there is a special zip file included, adding an alternative sound that should work. If you dont get the crash, stick to the original one.


C R E D I T S
HANS ZIMMER - soundtrack from 'The Lion King'
SOLDOUT SOFTWARE - sound effects from 'Robin Hood - the Legend of Sherwood'
INGO VAN THIEL - sound effect from 'Ulio'
SOUNDDOGS.com - sound effect
JAMES BOND - soundtrack, as well as inspiration and parodied names
MADAGASCAR - soundtrack
S_M_T - sound effect from 'Brelda the Hun'
JULIUS999 - some light playtesting


Oh well, enough with the text. Download and have fun. Any comment or/and review is warmly welcomed!

Please edit your scenario using the 'Update' button above your description.

The game discontinues, trigger 'Plumed Archer (important)' has the 'Trigger Starting State' to 'Off'.

Question1, the game crashes with the wrong answer; sound 'JB - wrong answer' is corrupt. If you cannot fix it, resubmit without.

Last question, you forgot to activate trigger '1594'.

Dantares IV Well, this looks interesting. I don't know how you did this seeing that this is a midevil game, but should still be fun to look over.

The game is updated, with an alternative soundfile added.

Also, Tanneur, the plumed archer is supposed to not be ativated. He'll be activated when you've done enough on the rest of the map :)

Indeed, it is a bug Sword of Storm. After really beginning to enjoy this beautifully made scenario I too got stuck on the taunts-based questions. Hope you update soon, Basse, so I can find out what happens next.

I hope 1 or 2 hours is soon enough then ;)

I'll be checking through it once again and get it to work as quick as I can. Once again, this bug never occured when I tested it - not even once. And yes, I did pick wrong answer intentionally to test it out.

Updated. The problem was that the Ai-fired triggers were in disorder, not sending the tributes that they should

It should work perfectly now, it does for me :)
Turty "I just realized Basse made this. Hearing the name of it, I thought it was some noob that made this game seeing it's more modern sounding."

That sounds kinda, well, mean.
