Several small but powerful Norse mercenary armies have invaded Anguilla to ravage the island and establish a Nordic outpost. The Atlantean Emperor has dispatched his foremost hero, Aeneas, to train the local militia and destroy the barbarians. Little does Aeneas realize what fate awaits him.
Aeneas meets the island leader, Dondonus, who has special oracle powers, a beautiful but nefarious witch, Maleficious, who is bent on destroying him. With Lions, Serpents, Shades and Satyrs the least of his worries are the Norse. To further frustrate the most hardened gamers, the island monkeys viciously attack all unwary troops. The scenario includes 3 hidden shrines and an overgrown Temple that must be restored. The shrines and temple may be visited multiple times, with each visit you receive a unique reward.
Four times during each play of this scenario, you are presented with a random rhyming riddle. If you solve the riddle you are given a random reward of resources or temple units. The riddles are under player control and may be turned off (and on) during play of the scenario.

--- Night, Dawn, Day and Dusk cycles.
--- A special zoom control that lets you enjoy the game from Aeneas' viewpoint.
