Play by email ~ Aow 1 ~ Athendore by Queen Elquein ~ 6 players ~ Sign up

Map: Athendore by Queen Elquein

AoW Ruleset: Official patch 1.36 (please make sure you have this patch). Look in the bottom right corner of the title screen.

Allied victory: Yes

Exploration: Yes

Leaders on map: Yes (Protect your leader at all costs!)

Activity expectation: You should only sign up if you will generally be able to play turns within at most 48 hours from receiving them. If you are unable to play your turn within 48 hours you must post in the relevant topic in advance. Writing turn logs is optional but you should always post a "turn sent" when you have played your turn so we know whose turn it is.

Story:
Long, long ago, at the end of the Golden Age of the Immortals when Gods and Descendants of the Mortal Races walked together in the Lands of Athendore, the Eldriens were the favorites of the Gods. They were the last to be created after the Humans, and thus were made flawless. They were like the gods for they were creative and knew of all things under the stars.

But as with things perfect and favored, the Race of the Eldriens soon became arrogant and made themselves Overlord over the other Races. The First of the Eldriens, Darcel Zau'ch even dared to go against the Creators themselves and challanged them. He seduced a great number of women of other races, and many detestable creatures, were brought forth from these forbidden reunions. His younger brother, Eziar, stole the Fruit of Fertility and the Eldriens soon had many children amongst themselves.

Because they were perfect, children were born knowing the world around them, and had formidable power even though they were still infants. In a matter of a few years, these young Eldriens grew to adulthood and gained knowledge of their parents. They formulated new power and soon were able to take the minds of other if they so wished.

Choas reigned the world. And all the Races were driven to the brink of extinction as the Eldriens continued to expand and increase in power and number.

The Creator Gods of Athendore, Kobos (Lord of the Earth), Thunderust (Lord of the Storms) and Lorrien (Lady of Reefs), were outraged by the rebellion of their perfect race. And thus they cursed the Eldriens and rained down their terrible anger on the Proud Race. Within a day, the Great City of the Eldriens fell into rubble. Disease, horrifying and disfiguring, broke out amongst the Rebellous Race. Overnight, They Who Were Perfect became They Who Were Inflicted.

Darcel Zau'ch was the worst of the Inflicted Ones. For his flesh, melted and seeped into the ground. Even his eyes fell from his face. In his pain, he cried out to the Gods.

None of the gods would heed his cry. None except one. Alas! Orgun, the Scarred God, who bore some hatred for his immortal brothers for severely punishing him when he created the violent race of Orcs. He heard the cry of the Eldrien First Man, and went to him in the shape of a mighty Black Vulture.

When the other Immortals saw him swoop down on the Eldriens, they thought that the race of Eldriens were finally annihlated and their wrath ceased. And no Eldrien body was ever retrieved, buried or found.

Orgun took all of them to his secret home beyond the Black Stars and hid them from the rest of the universe.

For many hundreds of generations, the scarred god kept these people and daily, they hungered for the blood of those who still walked the earth under the favor of their creators. But there was hope for these corrupted beings. For Orgun's horrible and violent creation, the Orcs were allowed to live among the Fair races. Then there was the ever zealous, desert worshippers of the self made Skull God who kept themselves away from the rest of civilisation. Orgun, thus realised a plan and fused himself into an idol of the non-existent Skull God. Through the idol, he spoke to them and taught them to worship him. Those who were wise enough to see through it all and realise what was really conspiring, were taken away, sacrificially killed in ceremonious occassions or locked away in a dark dungeon for the rest of their lives.

Meanwhile, the rest of the world began to encounter more and more strange incidences. Some sanctuaries that were once peaceful became haunted and forbidding. Shadows sometimes wander the land, creatures of horrors reappear from the days of legend, bloody altars were found. And then, in the horizon, a lone fisherman spots a red dragon.... The civilised races grew increasingly suspicious. Scouts were sent out that revealed even more darker days to come....

I have had a look at the map for this game, and there are three players that are locked for the computer to play. These three are the Azrac's, the Orc's and the Undead's. And these three are set up with HUGE advantages, with lots of gold and mana surplus every turn, and a bunch of strong units all over the map. This map will be a true challenge for all of us...

So motordrive, I suggest you choose another race to play before another one take it.

Can we confirm SoupLLJK is still around before starting?
He seems to be AWOL in the Loc II game, so probably not a good idea to have him as humans?

Soup is not around atm - he has a bit of real life stuff to take care of (nothing life threatening), and he won't be able to commit for a few weeks or more.

ALSO: He said that while he's away, another person should take his place/sub for him.

we only need 1 more person, since soup isn't available for the foreseeable future... or we could just start with an AI player in his place XD

Just to get this game starting, I could sub for him until he get the time to join us or wants to drop in. Of course, if that's ok for all of you?
In that case, he will maybe get his leader train differently than he is used to...

Ehh, I personally would prefer an AI player.. He's effectively completely gone for who knows how long, and you having duo knowledge of two teams doesn't sit completely well with me... :P
