CHASER: Era map

If you already played and enjoyed The Dragon Slaughter, then you will enjoy Chaser as well. Remarkable Woodmelon's pinnacle artwork, full of facetious and comical situations supported by both genius scripting and strategical puzzles, high challenges but always doable, this chinese map will literally bind you while waiting the next turn.

CHASER (3.0 MB)
Author: Woodmelon (China) 2005
English translation (sorta): EMPShockwave

Era conversion, scripts fixing and various ideas: Valery
The dialogs are very folkloric, it sounds more chinese than english but they are so charming that I let them untouched, except situations when it was really incomprehensible and harmful to game play. Originally the map was intended to be played with ghosts, therefore the difficulty level was extremely high if ghosts not used. This version proposes a different challenge, due to various ideas implemented, for a less linear outcome.

Start:
Offense all the way!



Heroes available:

Jill the Hunter


Fiona the Perceptor



Valeska the Banker


Moandor the evil King


Houdini the Enchanter


Solmyr the Town builder


Kyrre the Logistic Master


Features:

Modular henchman and commander:


kick ass towns


kick ass artifacts


And of course, kick ass battles (not too much spoiling, just showing the little ones




So, have fun and ask if stuck, I am now comfortable with all the hidden things, and there are a bunch of them.

Maps for 3.58 wog needs conversion for Era as some syntax will show errors. Maps for sod do not need conversion, you can play them directly. I always play sod maps under era with all mods eliminating bugs, plague, overflow but keep sod gameplay 100% identical.

 I calculated damage Titan Bolt does and was surprised: instead of 1464 damage at level 28, with sorcery speciality, it does about 2500 damage. Also, when my commander's Magic Arrow procs, it does amout 250 damage, while her Ice Bolt does about 170 damage, and that is strange. If you need it, here is the save

I know sorcery works, the thing is that armies middle and late game have hundreds of thousands creatures, so magic beside expert slow will be useless.

Your save: it is a good idea to enable plugin "no secondary skills limit" because you missed earth magic in the scholar near your first town, and earth magic is no offered later. And without earth, Heroes 3 isn't playable.

In fact, to get the magic skills (water, earth and air) without plugin activated, you must follow a very precise path first week, get only 5 skills and have 3 slots empty after you get the combo. Is kinda tedious so many reloads.

 Why did you include sorcery then, if it's that useless? And I do have no secondary limit on, scholar at the start said me to do that, however, those skills can't be seen in hidden skills menu. You can open my spell book and make sure, that I can cast slow on expert level.
 I still want to see if it's not very good and propose some buffs to it, maybe those similar to TEW IV (I mean something like Prayer gives extra stats each round, that bonus was a life saver at the start).

Just a reminder: is not my map. Author is Woodmelon (same as for dragon slaughter), I only adapted to Era and added a few secondary heroes which are helpful if you don't play with million of ghosts. I will not remove features imagined by author, unless they provoke bugs and damage game-play.

Also I added in readme.txt the list of mods you can enable when playing chaser. One of them, overflow fix, is almost obligatory, all late battles will screw your army experience.

Resolve battle uses original battle calculator so it won't give different results than quick battle except mana is restored after fight.

I wish I could delete spam comments in my threads

AlfWithCake, did you notice loss of experience after some battles? Like every stack going into negative? I experience this thing a lot recently, trying to find out if is related to Era or something else.

 Emm, I didn't use any creatures 'till now, I just defeated fortress hero and it wasn't very easy, but what choice did I have? I noticed hidden seer with the scholar too late, waiting another week just to bring creatures, that will be killed horribly after battle, didn't make sence either.
 That's still strange, that with a single commander and henchman quick battle managed to kill like bazillion of dragons. I wonder how it's working, but I guess, that I won't ever know.
 I, also, encountered funny and tragic situation (mostly tragic) while battling  fortress: I used earth elementals as my commander's hp was at very low level, and my hero accidentially died while doing good ol' hit'n'run (never expected, that attacking paralyzed creature it will gain turn). This was an end for me: henchman's dead, commander's dead, I have only earth elementals and no mana return, but something terrific happend and turned elementals into first aid tents, increasing their HP and giving them heal ability. Weren't it for them, I would lose that fight. Endless Titan's bolt casting against a whole lot of hydras and gorgons was slow, but a sure win. This could be even better, if I could ressurect my lone sniper and actually win that fight, but no luck here. You just can't imagine the delight I had, when I discovered earth elementals transformation, and the suffering after double loss.

hey teslaptak, you open the editor, then click edit/find, then browse the list for those two artifacts. They are on map.
