The Tang dynasty's war in Samhan (ancient Korea) was a long and brutal conflict that occurred in the mid 7th century CE. Even as the war concluded, a betrayal by the Tang triggered a bloody rebellion that lasted many more years. Actual historic events from this period have been adapted into this military-oriented campaign.
As one of the Tang's youngest, brightest, and most daring generals, you have been selected to lead an expedition to Samhan. You will face political and military challenges that will reveal not only your own destiny, but the destiny of ancient Samhan itself!
This campaign includes three missions and a player will interact with 8 historically accurate cities. Resources, commodities, and available structures follow the Emperor model for the steel age.
A new custom map of 'enormous' size and temperate climate was created for this campaign. It is a representation of a mountainous island on the west coast of the Korean peninsula.
An extra file is included in this download. It is a text file named 'TSSOS_Readme.txt', and contains installation instructions, background information, campaign design notes, general play tips, and mission hints (warning: contains spoilers). Additionally, other hints are available by viewing the album of playtest screenshots in the Emperor Heaven gallery.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This campaign is rated 'normal' and will provide a difficulty level similar to the campaigns in the core game.
Missions Teasers: (Note - there are no time limits on any missions in this campaign, although M3 has a survival goal)
M1 - A Secret Alliance with the Silla - begins in 643 CE.
M2 - The Subjugation of Samhan - begins in 656 CE.
A little bit too easy compared to others campaigns like "The Wayward Sun Wu Kong" or "The Fall of the Song", but still very fun !
Map Design: 5
I love Island maps !
Like the others Gweilo's campaigns, a wonderfull story and instructions for a good adaptation.
Thanks again Gweilo for an other wonderfull campaign.
I recently registered on the Emperor Heaven community but I'm a huge fan of the game since the beginning. I started to create my first campaign last week, not finished yet, but I wish I could send it to you first and know what you think before sharing it with everyone.
Really enjoyed playing this campaign, really good story line and I like the time it took to complete each section. Not too long, but you definitely couldn't rush through each one (spoiler alert) especially the last one as it had a time restriction.
It was challenging to build enough housing to complete the third mission, especially the elite housing. Good planning is required and I had to incorporate a gate allowing religious devotees access to the elite area from outside of it to have enough room to build the hosing required.
Thanks for taking the time to create these campaigns as I would have no idea how to create them for myself.
