I am still not sure.....The story just keeps me fascinated and I just cannot let it loose.

The mythology world is just very intriging for me and AoM is still the most perfect game to tell The Nibelungen tale.

But time enough to see what I will do...let me first finish my current project and after that I will see what happends ;)

I will try to get some more on msn...but I am a bit busy and often go just online for a few minutes to check stuff and post here and there.
but you can always catch me by posting in my personal forum

Best regards,

The Vandhaal

Here is my review of your lovely campaign as I have promised before.

Playability: 5
Very challenging with phenomenal features. At first I had some difficulties to complete the first scenario but as I usually get on quite well with these sort of games I though come on Girl try harder, you can beat this ! So I changed my approach and from that point on I had no problems to solve all the challenges and objectives in the scenarios.I replayed some of the scenarios and tried to approach them in another way and as I did this it was clear that you did not base the different aspects and missions on presumptions. It seems that you had counted on all possible actions a player could perform. I just could not find any playability issues.

Balance: 5
I consider the balance in this campaign as excellent. Some objectives are relatively easy and some are hard. The amount of saving and restarting was fair. The story was so breathtaking that it kept me going on. So Each time I failed in some way, I knew that if I tried something a little different I would advance.

Creativity: 5
The campaign and its story are captivating and sensational. After I had completed it I took a look at all the images and descriptions you had made and realized how hard you must have worked on it. You succeeded in telling this myth through a game plot that is detailed and creatively enhanced with very original ideas. The level of your stunning creativity in design surpasses what a Review can indicate. The countless details and the movies provide an intense and impressive gameplay experience. Simply brilliant The_Vandhaal !

Map Design: 5
It is just Incredible how you managed to create this expansive world. All the maps and movies gave me a highly dramatic experience and all locations were made memorable and completely captured my imagination as I played through them. Besides the very creative and beautiful eyecandy the maps contained plenty of strategic advantage and , as I found out the hard way, disadvantage points. You managed to keep me suprised in every step I took on my way of exploring the lands around the Rhine.

Story/Instructions: 5
This is not only one of the most beautiful campaigns I've played it is also one of the most captivating and best stories I've encountered. The story and Alberichs actions are disturbing and even more chilling was the sensation when I thought some more about how cruel my little hero was. All instructions are well crafted and the objectives, hints and displayed messages are meaningful to both the story and the game play. You seduced and captured me completely with the dept of the story and the build up of your campaign.

Additional Comments:
I enjoyed every second of this campaign and like to thank you for this. I congratulate you once more with creating this truly masterpiece and hope you will continue in creating this kind of beautiful campaigns.

Sorry for the late reply,

@ darktemplar987

LoL well I am not sure if you like the campaign but lets just hope you have fun with it.

Now lets see if we can get you started.

I think I see what you have done wrong In your reply on Cavetowns question you confirm that you have placed the files in the MY Documents folder....they should be placed in your C: (or whatever directory you intsalled Aom TT) and then into the appropriate game folders.
Please check the included read me as it is all explained in there. You might want to use also the shortkeys to install the campaign ( again see readme).

Hope you get it solved

p.s. thanx Cavetown for helping him out

@ LaLinda

Thanx for nice comment and review..I am very glad that you had fun in playing the campaign and that you liked the stuff I have created around it.

Best regards,

The Vandhaal
