STORY

The Norns discover that their spinning wheel has made a knot in the Rope of Time….it is an ill Omen. The Dark Alba will rise. he will change the worlds of mortals…and gods…forever. In the end he even can cause the downfall of the Light Alba himself…

In a time lost to history, when the gods still walked among the mortals the power thirsty Nibelungen Alberich  (a nightdwarf), steals the magical Rhinegold from the daughters of the Rhine. This act will change the worlds of the Gods, Titans, Spirits and mortals forever. With the powers this treasure holds he is finally able to fulfill his long last dream; to become the ruler of Nibelheim and the entire world. As Alberich and his legions start their tour of death and destruction he is not aware that he will play a key role in a deal between Wotan, the supreme leader of the gods, and the mighty Titans….The campaign will take you from the dark underground world of Nibelheim along the various races which live by the Rhine up into the realm of the gods themselves…….and back.You take control of Alberich, his Generals and his legions as they proceed to meet their destiny….

Wagners Ring saga

The Rhine Gold AoM TT campaign is based on the first Opera in the Ring of the Nibelungen cyclus by Richard Wagner. Basicly the story of the campaign is all made up (by me) in order to make it more suitable for an Rts game like Age of Mythology. The original Wagner tale is incorporated into the story of the campaign…..so if you are looking for the original Nibelungen story check the ancient Nibelungen Lied poem….or check Wagners stuff( which is basicly also an adaption of the orginal tale).

Wagners Ring of the Nibelungen cyclus consist out of 4 operas.Besides great music, you all will probably know The Ride of the Valkyries, the story is an interesting mix of heroes/ magic/ battle/death/deceipt.Wagners Operas are based upon the old tale of Das Nibelungen Lied (German, Low Lands and Norse myths)

The 4 operas are called:

  1. The Rhine Gold (this campaign)
  2. The Valkyrie
  3. Siegfried
  4. Twillight of the gods

 Age of Mythology The Ringe of the Nibelungen campaign by The Vandhaal 

 This is my first ever Age of Mythology the Titans hobby project. Dont ask me why I made  a large campaign as a first personal Age of Mythology project ever….I’ll guess temporary insanity or something..anyway I learned along the way as I created it to work with the triggers and in the AoM TT scenario editor ( i knew nothing of this all before i started with this campaign)…..if you know where to look carefully you will see this “learning curve” also in the trigger work, However looking at the reactions which i got from many people and the amount of downloads this thing got, I, all in all, don’t think that I did such a bad job for a first effort.
