Welcome to the Grey Marsh, where life is short, death everywhere and conflict eternal. The three tribes continue to fight... for glory, fame, and survival.
You must wonder: What is this? An ordinary struggle? But what is behind it all? I will tell you...
These are the three animal tribes: The So’Bëkos, the Skullboda and the Mem-Pass.
Each tribe has been given it's own lore, units and game play mechanics:
The Grand Crocodile – The So’Bëkos
The So’Bëkos use their long ranged crocodiles in combination with their melee-orientated infantry and cavalry to create a very powerful combination. While the So’Bëkos army consists mostly of males they also have powerful warrior women, with the ability to leap though the air and deliver a deadly blow to enemy ranged units.
The Silver Wolf – The Skullboda
The Skullboda have a formidable army consisting of a mix of dangerous wolves and powerful, well equipped warriors. These beast men will stop at nothing to attain victory over their opponents.
The Winged Serpent – The Mem-Pass
The last tribe gains power though numbers: A Mem-Pass Spearman is no match for a properly trained Skullboda or So’Bëkos enemy, but using their fast breading snakes and large armies, the Mem-Pass continue to stand strong against the enemy’s monstrous beasts, remaining true to their ideals of freedom and equality.

Beautiful, Paperfriend! The landscape was stunning and full of animation. The lighting was great/fitting too.
The balance was ace. Even after several minutes, each clan was about equal in the fight. You kept it interesting with the random effects like the serpents. Then the beginning was cool too. Only wish you would have more animals during the fighting - like have that giant bird flying past more often.
Also appreciated how the fighting and other effects took up the whole screen - even though from your screenshot, the middle section is blocked from the menu. Nice use of the space. Never a dull moment. :-)
Check the typos/word choice in your readme. ;)
Story sounds awesome. Can't wait for the next teaser!

This was excellent! Your background is stunning, starting out as the peace before the storm that has animals walking around and following each other. The monkeys and the cranes were great and portrayed the atmosphere very well along side with the lighting effects. Speaking of which, it seemed to be more of a jungle than a marsh in my opinion. You had many things that kept the show entertaining including, th start of the massive battle that was installed to come, a titan, randomly spawning serpents, souls ascending into the heavens above and how could I forget the ragnorok? You've also managed to make the balance close to immaculate whilst always having close to the same amount of units on the screen at any one time.
The point is, you've packed loads of extras and goodies that makes for a great viewing experience. You've got me wanting to play this scenario already, just to try out the different tribes and explore the full potential of each one. Can't wait for it to be released.
