The Lost Legion

Author File Description
Oscar
File Details
Version: AoM: The Titans
*** THE LOST LEGION ***//

"One moment, they stood under the skies of Gaul, facing each other in a strange duel of survival. In the hand of the Roman tribune Marcus Scarus was the spell-scribed sword of a Druid priest. The Celtic chieftain Viridovix held a similar sword, bespelled by a rival Druid sorcerer. Then, as the two swords touched, a dome of golden light flared out and surrounded Marcus, Viridovix, and three cohorts of Caesar's legions. The next moment, they found themselves under a strange night sky where no stars were familiar and where Gaul and Rome were unknown. They were in an outpost of the embattled Empire of Videssos - in a world where magic and dark sorcery would test their skill and courage as no Roman legion had ever been tested before."

Singleplayer scenario for The Titans expansion freely ispired by the Videssos Cicle by Harry Turtledove.

*Characteristics:
-about fifty minutes of cinematics.
-1221 triggers
-1000x1000 metres map
-46 objectives
-custom soundtrack

*Installation:
1)Extract all file from the zip archive (directory "lost_legion_sounds"+ THE_LOST_LEGION.scx).
2)Place the file .scx in the directory "Scenario".
3)Place the directory "lost_legion_sounds" in the directory "sound" present in the folder where the game is installed.

*Important advice:
-in this map there are thousands of objects and sometimes many active triggers at the same time. As a comsequence your pc could take a long time to load the savedgames, to save the map or to open it with the editor.
-your pc could make a mistake while it's saving the game forcing you to restart the map from the beginning. I advise to save often (at least after every cinematic) but not always on the same file, this is important.
-you can freely choose your favourite difficulty level in any case it will be automatically set on "Hard" by some triggers at the beginning of the game.
-don't use cheats, above all the destructive ones (like meteors and tornados), that could destroy an object necessary to continue the game, or the cheats that create new units, that could compromise the running of some following triggers.
-during the game use and move all your units in group and don't forget anybody back.
-read carefully the objectives and the hints in the objectives section.
-this scenario has been made and tested with no patch installed.
-to not compromise the correct working of the game when you have a trasport ship or a Roc don't forget any units inside them.
-this scenario could really try sorely the performances of your pc so don't play this map at one go but in more "sessions".
-near the end of the scenario during the cinematics some momentary blocks could happen. Please wait a little before coming back to windows or resetting.

For who has red the entire Cicle of the Legion: this is just a bad and unfaithful copy of Turtledove's books, many events and charcters are invented and others aren't equal to the real ones. I made the scenario in this way to adapt the features of AoM to the story told in the cicle and to make my life easier.

AJER Oscar i really need your help, the part where you are bring 2 oxcarts and some guards to a town in the north for som diplomacy to fight Avshar I keep getting stuck. When you have to go onto the hill with a tomb and the wolves charge at you. The wolves 1 or 2 shot all the archers and kill everything else quickly after you are defeated. I have tried almsot everything i can think off, heal spamming with the priest, not going to the hill will all the archers, not going to the hill and instead staying in the pass and haveing the melle guys block the passage. Just running for it. banging my archers and the ox cartup against the tomb, just trying to fight and many other things. I really need your help here...
JJ1forces I hope you can put a screenshot with it, so more people would download it.
daniefer Hey Oscar great campaign!
do you have an italian version, because an italian cousin that doesnt read english whants to play it so maybe you can send it to me or tell me where i can get the italian version online.
Bultro I have a problem: when the big battle in the desert starts, i am immediately defeated because the roman general starts already far away from the battlefield. But it's not my fault, he was not a movable unit in the previous mission. Any clue?

thisisntworking This scenario won't even load for me, it freezes up my system. My system isn't the greatest, but I've never had this problem before, so I think it's this scenario's fault.
FabianScarus Playability: 5
The playability is great, vary easy to play.

Balance: 5
The balance was prefect, I mean there was some REALLY hard parts but I think they could be beat, I could not, however, I've only got past the missions using cheats lol

Creativity: 4
Well, I took off one point due to the fact that this was not your idea but still a great translation into a scenario.

Map Design: 5
The design was awesome! I love the capital city with wall ramparts and the overlapping buildings.

Story/Instructions: 5
The instructions where also great, never once did I not know what to do!

Additional Comments:
This is honestly the best Campaign/Scenario I've ever seen! Keep working, I'd like to see more of your work. I would also love to see a great scenario like this that was totally your idea (don't take that as a bad comment!)

Never run to battle with only one sword at hand.
