The Rise and Fall of the Sultan
Scenario 1: The Sun Rises on the Ottoman Empire
It is a time of turmoil. The rule of the Seljuk Turks over what is now Turkey has come to an abrupt end at the hands of the Mongolians. Various emirates have been spawned by the fall of the Seljuk's and the region is up for grabs. At the moment, the Ottoman Turks located in the region of Anatolia are poised to take up a powerful position in the aftermath of the Seljuk downfall...
Control a small Ottoman colony in the western region of Anatolia. Your are surrounded by 3 other Turkish Emirates in an all out free for all. Certain units are disabled and can only be accessed by completing objectives and you can not advance beyond the Fortress Age. The terrain and locations of enemy colonies allows for multiple strategies, such as conquering the Black Sea to the north before moving inland.

This is only the first scenario in a campaign that will hopefully be quite lengthy, I hope you enjoy playing it as much as I did making it. Don't forget to leave your honest opinions and constructive critcism.

Horrible lag coupled with no triggers makes for a very bad game. I was unable, though I had sufficient resources, to advance past the Colonial Age. The computer players weren't either so I didn't feel so bad. I got the wood for getting to the Fortress level but no ship because there was no flag placed. Second time I tried, I got the 5 Albus guns but still did not advance. I hate, HATE, HATE (!!) games where you have to resign in order to finish!!!
Despite these problems and the fact that everyone else had Albus guns... until I built a dock and a galleon... it was still pretty easy to win.
The thinking behind this is creative though belonged in AOE2. By the time period of AOE3, the Ottomans were drooping.
Map Design: 3
Nice design but the reason for the lag "could be" too many trees and sliver mines. Defy "Sierra Club" and the "Earth First" group and remove much of the forests and place fewer 'gold' mines instead of having 'silver' if your attempt is to give pleany of resource.
Nicely laid out story but without the triggers, I was only able to complete the secondary objective and even though I removed every single trace of the three other groups (Is that what you meant by assimilate???), the primary objective was not completed.
