Standing at the shore for aeons, the Holy Belltower of Agnaras has served as a lookout throughout its history. It has warned countless generations of
enemies, Orcs, Chaos and fallen Brothers of the Imperium. However, it has been destroyed a few decades ago in the large battle of Agnaras between the
Hammer of the Emperor and their Blood Brothers. Rumors say you can still hear the bell tolling over the battlegrounds during the small breaks that war takes
every now and then.
Inquisitor Durras, commander of the Space Marine forces in Agnaras had won that clash at the cost of the Holy Cathedral of Agnaras, and been executed 
for his failure to protect either the Belltower and the cathedral, Although many Space Marines mumble his last words when entering the lush green plains
between the city and the mountain area, from where rumors tell the Chaos to come once again.

"Brothers! They come. The Holy Belltower warned us about them, as it has always done and as it will always do. 
The vast Chaos Army has set foot on this holy planet. The chance we can stand against them is little - if it wasn't here. 
There will be a day that evil will win. But this day lies far in the future! There will be the time when we will die! 
But this day lies far in the future! Today, they will lose! Brothers, today - we will win!"

 - A small battlefield
 - first map, not too bad, though

 - the AI has been tested with the Inquisition: Daemonhunt modification which uses an AI modification. The matchup was SM vs Orks / Chaos everytime I tested.
	It shouldn't come to problems, however, the beta versions had a nasty AI bug in it causing the CPU to not build anything higher than T1 units.
	With the new AI modification (2.2 -> 2.4) it shouldn't give AI problems at all.


version changes
Version B1.1

 - added a heckload of craters, decals and stuff
 - added a tower to the castle
 - added a small way to the castle
 - added a critical point near the castle, you now need to hold both crits to win (with the appropriate gametype option)
 - revamped some terrain so pathfinding is a little better
 - revamped fogging distance
 - made a (buggy) loading screen which needs some more work before releasing it


still to do...

 - add a bellsound (or keep it imaginable)
 - add a loading screen (or just use the standard fare)
 - revamp AI (or use the AI mod)


thanx to ...
