Of course this scenario will work in TWC, but for best results, please use AoE3 original.
So as not to give the story away, I have included a demo map that is 1/2 of the second playable map in the El Dorado campaign.
Morgan Black is already on the search for the legend of El Dorado and is led to the Carolina territories to free a guide that is held prisoner in an English held village. Once arriving from the Canary Islands, Morgan and his men are immediately thrown into battle, helping a struggling platoon of Spanish soldiers. They agree to help each other to succeed in both of their missions.
In order to play this demo, you will also need to download and install the Designer's Mod for patch 1.11. You can download this mod either here at HG using this url: http://aoe3.heavengames.com/downloads/showfile.php?fileid=1094

Great job on the playability as far as everything goes.
Everything seems to go ok, except for a few glitches and such, for example when i was to attack that guy in the biginning i used the sweep attack command and killed the sheep. :(
Loved ots of litle things here and there expecially Monty Python referance. :)
Map Design: 4
Map has a great flow but sometimes I have a hard time finding things like wolves in the biginning with all the foliage on the ground, I would like to see a little clean up. The biginning music is good but I would have used Run to the Hills in my opinion.
The overall story I have seen has nothing to do with El Darodo but kicks ass overall, and also has a few instruction glitches like when someone talks the big objective pops up.
WHEN IT THIS COMMING OUT ITS ALMOST 2009!

I notice that every review & comment is like 6 years old. I liked things but I found it too hard. After going through all the cinematics, hunting for 16 wolves, and getting whipped several times it really got to be tedious and not fun. Clever stuff and here's your pat on the back, pat pat.
