I know I'm very late to the party but since the user created scenarios are gone from the official CotN site, I got the craving for something new. Originally I was just going to create a sandbox to play in but as I began to get going a story developed and soon I had myself a full fledged scenario. And since it turned out to be pretty nice, I decided to post it here.
The story is a fictitious and unlikely one; confronted with the prospect of Roman rule a small village decides to try to restore their homeland to it's former glory. Goals are plenty here so you'll be engaged for awhile. You will need to build both a library and a lighthouse as well as a properly dedicated Cult Temple and two other temples. There are also two World Map sites that must be opened. With pyramids for Pharaohs it generally took me around 30 yrs to complete during testing - considerably less without the extra limestone & labor (or if you settle the west bank). Though not a military mission by any means, you will need a sizable force.
So if anybody is still out there and wants to try something new (and perhaps even a little different) give this a try and let me know what you think. I had fun doing it and plan to make at least a couple more eventually so if you enjoy it - say so and I'll post those as well. Otherwise, they'll just be for me. :-)
I'm still playing, and SSSOOOOoooo happy someone else is still creating new scenarios! I will download and give it a whirl. Thank you so much!

(Insert Playability analysis here)
(Insert Balance analysis here)
This rating may seem low, however, it is based on the comparison of this scenario to other user-created scenarios which have been posted to this site. Please consider this 3 to be very good, and not mediocre. What I feel may be lacking here are conditional triggers.
It's always fun playing a NEW scenario, and I thank you for sharing this one. I really had fun playing it, and enjoyed the play length of time required while achieving the clearly outlined goals.
I've been playing CoTN for a very long time and have enjoyed many user-created scenarios which have far exceeded the scenarios that come with the install.
I will be watching for you to upload more scenarios! Please don't keep them for yourself; we all really appreciate you sharing your work with us! Thank you!

Thanks BikerChickWi (and all others who took the time try Dream Of Kmt). I'll take a 4.2 rating as quite good for a first attempt! It appears as if you had fun playing and that is gratifying. Point taken on the conditional triggers. Most of them are are for receiving different messages depending on the order events occur instead of for action within a single play. Looking back at it, that was an oversight.
I've got a few ideas for a new map in my mind but a story has yet to come to me. So stay tuned!
Yes, please upload your finished city. I'd love to see it!
