Chrombasia - The Two Relics

Author File Description
File Details
Version: The Conquerors 1.0c
Style: Mix
“After the death of the great king, power was handed to his last, fat-bellied son Rodwig. Rodwig was derisively known as the pious because he was unable to govern the country. First, he handed power to his three sons, but after just one year he changed his mind, deciding that his new-born son from his recent marriage should also be considered. This caused conflict, plotting and civil war against the father and also among the brothers. The vast realm created by the great king disintegrated ...

Meanwhile, things were also stirring in the north. The people of the North Sea attacked the coast with their fast ships, plundering cities and settlements. Since nobody could stand in their way, they finally settled the land themselves.

Among these people were the Jarags, who were led by the guards of a cult of monks. Nobody knows now where they came from or when they came. On the North Sea coast they built an enormous castle on a hill of rock and named it Bailthor.

Whenever their fires could be seen on the horizon, people would flee so that they did not end up in the flames. Fear and terror spread.

Those who were in the fight and escaped with their lives were never the same again. It was told that warriors jumped out of the fire, to make the guards, who neither experienced pain nor hesitated to strike with their weapons so many of their opponents were shocked and knocked to the ground before they could react.

They did not see to be from this world. Human blood did not flow in their veins. Rumours spread that the powers possessed by the guards made them men and master over fire and flames.

In order to escape their anger, the ruling families and kings nearby submitted to the Jarags and made large tributes to them. A new cult spread seemingly inexorably...

In order not to lose their position of religious power in the world, it was one of the Order of Knights who felt a strong power in him. But it was not religion alone, even if it was a good pretext, which induced the grand master of the order to explore the guards’ secret powers over fire and flames.

Since the kings and the Jarag’s ruling families were not against each other, it made little sense to ask them for support, particularly since it was also not necessary. The Order of Knights ranked among the wealthiest secret organisations of their time. As soon as the grand master of the order called for a campaign, many followed him. Thus one of the largest professional armies in history was formed against opponents, opponents who one didn’t exactly know and actually also didn’t know how to fight against ...”

This campaign was originally submitted to the German website AgeArena. It was translated into English by Stephen Richards (the German voiceovers remain) so any textual errors, omissions or incomprehensible instructions are due solely to him. He chose to translate it because:

"Chrombasia is a riproaring game, up there with the best. It's crammed with varied gameplay, superbly worked-out challenges, creativity, and all on a map design as good as any I've seen, and with a remarkable story to boot. I think it deserves to be opened up to a bigger audience and I'm sure once you've played it you'll agree."

Stephen would like to thank Andreas for letting him loose on his masterful design, DiGiT's Trigger Studio, various online translaters and dictionaries, his rusty school-level German, and his mother with her rather-better German.

I meant to add a tip, based on my experience - I learnt this the hard way. When you have to go the temple at Jarraconda only take the 3 required units to the monk, and leave the rest outside so as not to block the way.

I'm only about a half hour in this, but already I am immensely impressed. The map design is so well designed that one can literally drool over it for hours on end. In addition the creativity and gameplay have already intrigued me greatly, it will not let go. This is designing at its best, folks. A must download.

The game is pure awesomness, its easy to understand great cutscenes everything we like.
Its a great game and easy to catch on to. Note that the first just scene stuffed up a bit.
