How to Make Ruins and Fire by Yellek

The following instructions are for adding ruins and fire to maps.



1. Build castle


This basic setup includes 2 territories, and 3 attacking units. Ensure territories are so small nothing can be built! (It keeps animation to a minimum.) Make sure red has no territory or estate.





2. Assign yourself one of the small territories







3. Save map and play.



4. Attack buildings

Attack until almost destroyed! Then pause! Give units move command.

Keep 1 unit behind.




7. Attack until you have ruins
