Story This is a free for all skirmish type scenario, where the French have built a mighty Stronghold around a sacred Inca temple.
The British and the Spanish (you the player) both want to conquer the Stronghold in order to capture the Inca temple.
The French of course are not going to give up the control over the temple.
So we have here a classic free for all game with a small twist - you have to capture the Inca temple before the British do.
Gameplay Conquer the French Stronghold to the south but watch out from the British (from the east) as they may try to take you out before trying to conquer the stronghold.
The French may also conduct raids of their own, so sometimes it may feel like they are both trying to take you out at the same time.
The Stronghold has two large fixed guns. You can try to take them out first or capture them, and then use them for your advantage.
Your main objective is to capture the Inca temple that is inside the French Stronghold.
Once you capture it, you will start a timer and if you keep the Inca temple under your control for 5 minutes, then you would win the game.
The same rule is true for the British.
You can capture the Inca temple by having at least 3 units next to it where no other enemy units are near.
However, the other players can re-capture it from you if they destroy your units.
Some units such as cavalry and artillery take less population, allowing for big armies (300+ population cap).
The water has a lot of fish and some whale, and the human player (you) gets a free fishing boat with every shipment (medium and easy levels only).
You get free Black riders (reinforcements) on regular base (the number of units depends on the difficulty level).
You get a large deck with 30 cards, including the Schooner card and hot air balloon.
You may get an extra explorer or two during the game.
The two AI opponents get initial advantage which makes their score higher at the beginning of the game.
However, their advantage is mainly with defensive structures, although the British may get some reinforcements at some point.
Note - This is not an historical scenario.
Tips ---- There are a few sheep lying around the map, so try to get them first.
Water boom strategy is essential in this scenario, although it may not be too safe.
Be careful not to destroy the Inca temple, as that will make the Inca people very angry (you are not going to like what happens as a result of that).
Rushing the French stronghold early may not be possible, but you can try that with the British.
Your two opponents may train some war ships so be prepared to fight against their ships.
Difficulty Included in the download are 3 versions for this map - easy, medium, and hard to feat everyone’s skill.
Hard level would even be a challenge for above average players
Installation ------------- Place the “Conquer Stronghold*.age3scn” and “Conquer Stronghold*.bck” file into 'my documents/my games/age of empires 3/scenario'. I also created 1 home city for this custom scenario (HomeCity_Seville...) and it should be copied to: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires III\Campaign\Blood Ice Steel Special thanks to sziggi and pftq for helping me out with the triggers that are needed to capture buildings. I hope you enjoy this scenario. If you do, then please show your support by reviewing it. Thank you. Moshe Levi
