The world lays in tatters, exhausted, bleeding, scarred and burnt, the people desperate. But even after the apocalypse there are men willing to give everything to return to light, to knowledge, to civilisation. Whatever the cost, and whatever the means... It is the age of a chosen few, an age of greatness, when the first true kings built vast kingdoms from the ashes of past empires... it is the Age of Charlemagne. The year is 768AD and, after the death of his father, Charlemagne is to share the Frankish throne alongside his brother. A situation that ill-befits a man of his vision, and their relationship clouds as he feels the fiery blood of his grandfather, Charles Martel, stir in his veins. Friends, enemies and opportunity populate a continent tired of conflict, the people eager for peace. Charlemagne finds himself at the head of a new age of education, religion and warfare, and sees all as tools to unite, stabilise… and expand.
For me the best DLC to Attila. In my opinion, the people who criticize the DLC didn't understand the game at all - the main thing is grumbling. The DLC now has much more depth. I think it's excellent and I have a lot of fun just how things...
work out with the wells. So, you no longer have to build wells everywhere, but can cover your empire with a few wells through clever placements, through the area effect of the wells on neighboring provinces (not only settlements). But you have to decide to turn your provincial capital into a church town. You can't build certain other buildings for that. I find such decisions very varied and bring more dynamics into the game than always building according to the pattern - great!
So much has changed compared to the main game that at first, I had to see how I have to do something now, as if I was playing a completely different game. That's the way it has to be.
I for my part am very happy with it - and yes, the units look similar - they still have two legs, two arms and an armor on ;-)
P. S. : this DLC increased my anticipation of Medieval 3 again :)
