The King of Arad attacked the camp of the Children at Israel (all 13 tribes, not just the Jews) and has taken captives. Joshua and Caleb have assembled the most experienced Israelite warrior units and has set up a forward campsite in preparation for the rescue of the captives. The Mighty One of Israel has instructed Joshua to free the captives and destroy the Arad Canaanites. In response to their vow of fidelity, He promised intervention and success to the Children of Israel.
The scenario has:
Awards for destruction of Arad Town Centers
Food (manna) gathering by Villagers
Required animal sacrifices
Upgrade of recruits to hero warriors
Note: The revisions are contained in the included Comments and Notes doc.
the scenario is hard but playable once you understand how to coordinate all of the activities
balance is good especially after the first raid by the king of Arad
i would give a 6 or 8 here -- there are
activities i have never seen before
Map Design: 4.9
the map is beautiful with some eye-candy
but i felt that the map should have been smaller -- i spent a lot of time moving my armies around.
excellent instructions -- first time i have seen them in acrobat pdf format
Additional Comments: Overall -- this is one of the best scenarios i have played -- please make more :)

no it didn't. Your review was most probably retracted because it was awful and inconclusive.

Could you elaborate and explain "awful and inconclusive"? Is this the map, the play structure, the scenario, the documentation or the inexperience of the person making the review.

2 word answers in a review are not acceptable. You cannot hand out a 4 or a 2 without saying why. A review is to help the designer do better next time, and to tell them what they did well at etc. Yours did not. Simply saying 'The map design was good' is not enough. It tells the designer nothing. Both your reviews were retracted by the mods for the simple reason that they were not conclusive or informative to the designer. Period.

When you download Acrobat from:
You will receive the latest version (6.0 current)
Install this application (free)
when you open the reader (execute the application) -- you can go to "Help" (upper right on the tool bar) -- you will find a tutorial on using the product -- Load Hormah.pdf from the file menu -- navigate and have fun.
Thanks for downloading
