Rise of a Realm By Marshmalo [Release date: Out now] Link to latest version : https://www.epicwar.com/maps/282024/ MAP SUMMARY: Rise of a Realm (ROAR) is a sandbox base builder/RTS game with a mythological/medieval theme. Players must first choose whether to found a Warrior or Mage Kingdom, then select a King or Queen to lead their Realm to glory. Players may remember my Viking Settlers map, this is a complete remake of that map where I have removed the mechanics which weren’t working and added many new unique features to make this map stand out from the many other Builder maps. GAME FEATURES - CUSTOM DIPLOMACY: Diplomacy plays an important part in ROAR, players an ally through the typical -ally command but also form unique alliances such as trade pacts, which generate passive income that increases the longer the two kingdoms stay allied. There are plans for other diplomatic options such as Threatening an enemy kingdom into submission and military pacts. - VASSALIZE OR CONQUER: Once you conquer an enemy capital you can chose whether to destroy your enemy or show mercy and Vassalize them, which allows them to live but incorporates their kingdom into yours. - MULTIPLE RESOURCE OPPORTUNITIES: ROAR uses gold and iron as its main resources, but there are various different ways of gaining these valuable materials. Kingdoms can breed livestock, fish the rivers, capture Iron mine, harvest iron deposits or trade iron for gold and vice versa. - BUILDABLE WALLS AND GATES: Protect your growing Kingdom by erecting mighty walls and gates, perfect for people wanting to build a mighty and beautiful city. - COMMANDERS: Most human soldiers and units can be appointed into commanders, which act as secondary heroes to your King or Queen. They can help manage and lead your armies and have improved abilities and stats over their normal unit counterparts. - LEGENDARY CREATURES: Capture strategic ancient landmarks around the map to summon powerful creatures of legend. The most powerful creature in the whole game is the mighty Dragon, but only the greatest of Kingdoms may wield these ferocious monsters in battle! - HQ TERRAIN: ROAR uses a selection of beautiful models from WoW alongside custom textures and resources from The Hive which I hope will give the game a “Warcraft 4” vibe. The imports have been compressed so map is around 15-16 MB which is very small for a map with so many high-quality art assets. HELP REQUEST: This announcement is also a plea for help, the map is currently very prone to crashes. The game can crash ten minutes in or an hour in, I really have no idea what could be causing this so if anyone has advanced knowledge of crash fixing and thinks they can help please message me privately. Assistance will be greatly appreciated! SCREENSHOTS Spoiler: Warrior Kingdom Warrior Kings: A kingdom founded upon military principles and conquest!
