In a time lost to history, when the gods still walked among the mortals a powerthirsty Nibelungen steals the magical Rhinegold. This act will change the worlds of the Gods, Titans, Spirits and mortals forever.

You take controle of Alberich, his generals and his legions as they proceed to meet their destiny...

The Rhinegold is the first act in The Ring of the Nibelungen saga and is roughly based on the Opera by Richard Wagner.

Thanx for your effort Guardian Of Isis and I am glad that you overall had fun

(1)It was too late for me to make the cinematics skipable...at the time I learned how to do that almost the entire campaign was finished...so it would have meant that I would have to redo major parts because the trigger chain was not set up correctly for making them skipable....As this is just an hobby you can understand I did not feel much for it.

(2)The Oxcart is a difficulty feature for Alberich...if it dies he also has lost his Rhinegold and the player will loose.

(3) ROFLMAO so 2 camera tracks which reminded you of Lotr with the total lenght of 15 seconds compared to the total amount of movie of over 2.5 hrs made you deside to rate this lower...LOL !! Not very strong reason but then again its your opinion

(4) the new terrain types DID and DO not errase your terrains this is also pointed out in the read me file!! If you delete the custom terrains.xmb file your game is back to normal...please adjust this statement in your comments because it gives new downloaders false information.

As for Nibelheim and the passages...like already pointed out in the read me file...Nibelheim is build up out of battlebridges which are obviously build to stall any enemies advance.

Ok again I was glad to hear you had fun

Best regards,

The Vandhaal

Guardian Of Isis (1) Nothing to do about it, ey. :D

(2) I meant that the Oxcart always moves close to you once Alberich moves a certain distance away.

(3) There were other minor errors... It's still a 4, isn't it? ;)

(4) Oh, thanks for the tip. But it WILL remain a 4... Again. :P Also, defeating The Mother (Atalanta)was a job for which I had to bring Klop to the Healing Spring 3 times, which took a LONG time. This is also a reason for the 4.

I'm glad you respect my opinion of your campaign. But it still WAS good: every scen kept you busy for an hour or two. Good job.

Hello Guardian Of Isis,

LoL ofcourse I respect your opinion... if that wasn't the case I wouldn't bother to give a reaction.

Well as you can see I do not care much about *ratings but I do care about the fun people have by playing the stuff I create...So thats why I only make remarks about the comments you made and not the ratings.... just to help you improve them when you make a review on some other game next time.

So your reaction and the fact that I was at least a little bit able to create some nice entertaining moments for you is the most important for me.

But I can see the game did catch you enough to spend the time and write something with a certain level of content...A lot guys are even too lazy to read the stuff I carfully wrote down on the various info pages and in the read me and start screaming around. So I appriaciate the effort you put into that ! Like I also said to the other guys...if you like to talk some more about the story or other stuff related to the campaign just hop over to my personal forums...your always welcome there ;)

Best regards,
The Vandhaal

* Short explaination why I do not care about ratings:
The rating system on almost all Heavens games download pages is just crap. The problem is that its just a personal opinion based on the level (mental as well as gameplay experience) of the player. So if a creator of a game gets unlucky he will have some guy/girl rate his/her game very low just because he/she was not up for that level of game. Which obviously is worth nothing. I am sure this will also happen in the end with this campaign. The only problem with low ratings is that the games from the various autors will also get vewer downloads....so in a lot of cases wont reach the audience who would possibly like them.

LordKronos Hey, I have a problem with the download, i waited 45 mins for the download, i then put all the files into the correct files, i even double checked them 2 or 3 times, and yet the campaign still doesnt work for me.I can see the name on the list and when i click on prolofou it just takes me right back to the main AOM menu, any idea what is wrong here?
LordKronos Well,i finally got it to work, i saw the part with the first nord second nord and thrid nord(i think that what they were called)(great job by the way) saw the movie and stuff, and then it fades out, turns totally black and stays that way, there was something wrong for me because i hit enter and the send box came up yet everything was still black.

But,Hey as of what i have seen you have done a great job!

Also there isnt voices is there?Just making sure dont want to be missing out on anything
LordKronos haha well i got it to work for real this time,I firgued out i got to go to lord scenerio to play them, instead of the campiagn menu, but now i may be a idiot, but i am thinking, is there another passage to get to the vault at the first scenerio?I mean i know u dont have to chop that tree with 5000 hp down, so is there? or no
