Fairy Tale puts the Civilization IV nationbuilding, warring and strategy elements in a Fairy Tale world with witches, knights, elves and damsels in distress.
This Civilization IV mod places a number of Civilizations in a fairy tale world; a world with evil sorcerers, mighty trolls, noble and manly knights, nimble woodelves and hot babes in distress.
This Civilization IV mod places a number of Civilizations in a fairy tale world; a world with evil sorcerors, mighty trolls, noble and manly knights, nimble woodelves and hot babes in distress. Original? Bah! This ain't original in any way. No-no. Instead Fairy Tale shamelessly makes use of all common and well-known fantasy and fairy tale clichés to create a pot of humour, excitement and of course pure good old Civilization nationbuilding. This mod does not claim to be original or impressive, nor does it claim to be Fall from Heaven. It does claim to be fun and exciting.
The thriving Kingdom of Angleeye was considered the only civilized power west of and beyond the Twin Lakes. It was ruled successfully and peacefully by King Gregory Lyssander III for fourty years and under his reign, the banner of Civilization was held high even in the savage West. Upon his passing in the year 3015, the world grieved, but put it's hopes in his talented, but young Queen, to continue the enlightened reign in his honour. That was not to be, however, for she was torn to wreck in her sorrow over his death, and to ease her grief and anxiety, she turned to the black arts in a vain hope to be able to actually ressurect him from the Dead.
While indulged in such enterprises of darkness, The Queen attracted the attention of the demonic powers. The Underground Kingdom made contact with the Queen and promised her that King Lyssander would indeed live again. The only thing The Demon King asked for, was for her to give up her own kingdom and ally with him; to incorporate into the Demonic Collective. She refused, at first, but his arts of persuasion knew no boundaries, and soon more and more of Angleeye was incorporated under his demonic rule.
The Queen was soon the only living human being left in Angleeye, as all else were mentally and physically incorporated into the Collective. And she chastised the Demon King for not holding his end of the bargain and not ressurecting King Lyssander. There was but one thing left, the Demon King replied, she would as his minion conquer and enslave the entire known world, and then she should meet her love again - when all the known world was finally under his Collective. The Queen - becoming more and more a demon under his command herself, as her soul gave ground to darkness - started preparing for war. Up, from The Underground Kingdom, came demonic hordes of troops; the forges worked day and night, the mines pumped out steel and the troops were drilled and trained.
The command was given, the march orders issued. In the Winter of 3018, the armies of the Dowager Queen crossed Angleeye's eastern border.
