The Legend of Xingshan - Singleplayer Campaign
"Xingshan", or "Star Mountain", has been a place of awe, fear, and mystery for untold millennia. Ancient stories of magic and curses surround it. The Legend of Xingshan has kept even the most courageous rulers from building there. Until now.

The An Shi rebellion has just ended, leaving the Tang dynasty severely weakened. In these desperate times, risks must be taken to revitalize the Middle Kingdom. The Tang now look to young administrators such as you for hope. You must risk all by daring to settle at Xingshan. Some are fated to face legends, to be either consumed by them, or to conquer them. Which fate will be yours?

As usual with Gweilo the campaign plays really well.
plenty of opportunities to stretch the novice player as well as those who have been playing for a while.
The invasions were easy to pay off, if enough cash collected, also with the use of the Gods.
I liked the the link to tasks, but i found the building of two monuments in the third mission a little much, since, all other goals achieved, it really was a waiting game until they were finished, perhaps split them between the other missions, but i may have missed something in the story line.
Great story line, with hints, if you read them carefully. Flooding meant you had to be on your toes to deal with the break to the salt and stone production.
Map Design: 5
Excellent map, I try always to achieve perfect Feng Shui, and this had enough in it to acheive that.
Excellent, and well constructed story line.
I really enjoyed this campaign, and have in fact now played it a number of times, but always come up with a different solution.
I am not a fan of time limited missions, so this ticked all the boxes for me.
Thanks again Gweilo. A great addition to your portfolio.
