A Murder In Swenet

Author File Description
File Details
Version: Version 1.3 (Enhanced Edition)
Difficulty: Normal
Setting: New Kingdom - Small map - Not that easy
City: Swenet - Patron deity: Set
CotN complete edition w. Alexandria

You are Rekhmire, vizier of Pharaoh Thutmose III, sent to start a new settlement in Swenet and establish gold mines in Nubia.
And you will, but that's not all this scenario is about. Play it to find out.

The zip file includes the scenario, 9 sound files, and info.txt, which explains where to put them.

Before you play the scenario, read the tips carefully.

For those of you who like to 'finish' a city: there's a little 'prize' for you after the win.

Oh, and a word of warning. The area where you're going used to be a limestone quarry, but was found to be not worth the trouble. An overseer there, a rather small man of foreign origin, experimented with a mixture of a yellow cosmetic powder, charcoal, and salt - only Horus knows why. Before he left, he buried whatever was left of the mixture in the ground. There used to be an old sign warning people not to put anything heavy there. Again, nobody knows why, and unfortunately the sign withered away long ago.

Have fun :)

UPDATE 18.04.2018: 18.04.2018: Turns out there was a loophole allowing you to place the palace by the floodplain, and in that case the scenario goes nowhere. Loophole closed, and scenario re-uploaded.

Lutti0210 I am currently playing this scenario but I seem to be blocked, although I think I followed the instructions correctly. I went quite far into the scenario (until the 27th instruction message); I had to send Lieutenant Bak to another city, which I did, and since then nothing has happened (I waited for several hours). I tried to start the scenario again and this time I'm blocked at the first message of instructions, which is weird.
Otherwise, the scenario is very engaging, so it's a little frustrating to be unable to continue the story :)

It might be a good idea to provide more clues or instructions, maye a sort of guide, to help those who are blocked like me, so that we understand what we did wrong or did not do. A guide that we could refer to when we feel like to story is not progressing anymore, just to check that we're still on track with the instructions.

Edit: I went into the scenario editor and found what I was missing - I just did not have enough farms! :)

Lutti, this place won't give you any notices when someone posts, so I only see it if I happen to visit, which I don't do that often. Sorry.

This is such a tiny scenario, planned for 6 nobles and 58 farmers. In my book that's really small LOL and it didn't occur to me that anyone might try to play with any less. You are, however, notified in one of the very first messages, that you should get at least 6 nobles. All requirements are mentioned in the messages you receive.

Glad you liked it (otherwise), hope you got to finish it.

In my following scenarios I have built in a lot of 'error messages', precisely to avoid people sitting around trying to figure out what they might have missed.
