Sick and tired of the cold winter nights in Quebec and the more than limited growing season for grapes and very few escargot, the French have decided that they wish to move to the south. Unfortunately, you and your British colonies are already there and have no intentions of moving.
Unknown to most historians, who still believe that it was the Native tribes that allied with the French in their efforts; it was those masters of death and destruction, The Circle and their Boneguards (perhaps, disguised as Natives) who aidied them in their quest. It has been rumoured that the French had promised The Circle either a map to the Fountain of Youth or specific directions to Disney World for their loyal patronage. Whatever the incentive, they were there to aide and abet the French in their dastardly efforts.
You control a VERY large number of British regulars and mercenaries and have been charged with the task of returning the French to the land of quiche and souffles and to break The Circle as well.
A trade route runs through the middle and there are six neutral native tribes willing to take sides of whoever is there with the money and a trading post.
Sometimes, the French and The Circle will attack and sometimes they don't (please send a note of thanks to ES for their incredible AI). I have done everything of know how to do in order to get them to attack en masse but again, sometimes they do and sometimes they do in trickles, a little bit at a time.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are looking for cinematics with which to entertain yourself, I suggest you go to your local theatre. Campaigns have cinematics (like the fine Roanoke Campaign available for download)... I haven't seen that many commercial products (e.g. AOE & AOM) with cinematics outside of their campaign menus. ALSO, if you are looking for an in-depth and detailed story with plot after sub-plot, may I, respectfully, suggest Charles Dickens. Thank you.
