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."

Wow! twenty two characters, Sounds immense, its a pretty big map too. Ive just gotta get my disk drive replaced by nov. Can't wait for the screen shots! I'm sure well have a new standard to judge scn.s by.

Thank you Argalius, your picture is better than mine so I've stolen it :P
The first screen I'm going to post is a screenshot of the entire map so now I'm totaly "absorbed" in map design. Then when I resume the trigger and cinematic component I will post some screens directly from the game.

Hi, Oscar. I like the name "The Misplaced Legion". And the poster is fantastic, the first one and the second one. I like the character, you chose all the right units for their position. I have seen many great threads about "The Misplaced Legion" and they always make it sound brilliant. This is the one with the big green temple, isnt it? Is this "The City in the Crater"?

Harry Turtledove's alternate history books tend to be much better than his fantasy books. I have not read this particular book though.
posted 25 September 2004 03:24 PM EDT (US)     10 / 177  
I've never read the books, but it's promising as ever, Oscar. Good luck!

Sure no problem, but I think it's better if you upload it to your own Photobucket account, because I might delete the picture one day, and then you still don't have it.

2 pics: (obviously they are both beta versin)

Videssos World (updated a bigger version)

example of cinematic map

About the first picture: this screen has a very low resolution and the corner on the left is a little difficult to do and so I prefer to make it later.

Sorry for the delay but recently my free time has became so little that I've no time to upload and to update this topic. (thank you again for your picture )
Unfortunately I think that 1st november is too early for the release of the map. December is a more reasonable date.

Well, most of all have been copied directly from the Videssos Cycle; the other charcters instead (Verotios Gavras, Leidar, Vorek, Eliond, Neferiti, Nephostos, Alphia) have been invented to solve some problems. For example is difficult (for me) to represent the love stories with the editor and so they have been replaced with other and made up events (with invented charcters).
