Kingdoms of Cenon

Hello there,

my old map, Planet of War (now called Kingdoms of Cenon), which I have been working on for 4 or 5 years, has now been increased in size and supports 8 players/kingdoms. Compared to previous versions, you don't have to kill every enemy in order to win the game, but you can just end it whenever you like. This way it is more open to selfmade alliances.

But what is this map about?
Kingdoms of Cenon plays in the year 4414 of the world of Cenon and is set amidst a number of hostile Kingdoms, who want to control the world. They can ally and break alliances and every Kingdom has a royal dynasty. You lose the game, if everyone of your dynasty gets killed.

I started this project 4 or 5 years ago and it was originally intended as a 5 player game on a very small map. Soon, this turned out not to be a way to go and hence I increased the map size and added 3 players.

What needs to be done?
I have never been able to get this game filled on Bnet and hence I haven't been able to test, if the map works properly. Perhaps, castles are too strong, perhaps there are exploits, perhaps, one faction is simply to weak, or there are bugs I haven't noticed yet.

In the future, I'm planning to add a new continent somewhere in the north or east, where new races are living. Perhaps naga or demons. I am also planning to make the Kingdoms more distinct from each other by adding more unique units to each of them. I'm also planning to write a few short stories to enrich the lore of the map.

That was all. If anyone is interested in the map or has feedback or ideas, he may tell me here.

Best regards
Alpun

Hello all!

New holidays and I finally remembered my own little project, which I've been working on for at least 5 years.
I have roughly one month time to edit this map, before university starts again.

So, what am I going to change?

1st

If you have a look at the minimap, you'll see a greatly expanded map. And yes, the map, although most of it is covered in water, now has the maximum size. It covers the entire world of Cenon from the polar regions to the central deserts.

The idea behind this is that you'll have another continent in the east, where Naga and Elven wizards fight a seemingly endless war. According to the lore, which I created, there once was a dark Elven mage called Tiuctan, who battled the forces of the Gods a few thousand years ago. Upon losing, he fled to the eastern continent, stole the scepter of the Naga Princes and accomplished to live until the present day, although he gradually turned into an immensely powerful Lich. The trick here is, that he can't leave his palace, becasuse upon seeing him, the common people would abandon him.

The Naga themselves are a cruel race, ruled by currently four Princes. They live in the northern part of the eastern continent, while Tiuctan has his city in the south.

2nd
On the western continent, I'll try to make each faction unique. Yellow will get powerful riders for example.

A new addition is the orange player. This one represents a mercenary band of Orcs, which can either serve Blue (and is initially allied to him) or carve out a new Kingdom either at the Orc continent or on the mainland.

Another addition, though it might not be a very innovative one, is that red's King can become possessed by a demon, opening a demon gate, which will any other player hostile towards him.

There is also a new gray player, who represents a Holy Order, trying to protect the realms of Cenon from evil. This order has a fortress on the island in the north and is initially the only one who can travel between the continents. Upon discovering Tiuctan, he can perform certain actions and try to prevent him from conquering the world.

3rd
There are, as you can see, other continents being added. Those will be filled with creeps and/or small dungeons.
I also plan to add a colonization unit, which allows to found new cities on other continents.

That is all for now. If you have any feedback or ideas regarding additions to the lore, I'd appreciate them.

Best regards
Alpun
