DESCRIPTION:
------------

METAL ON MAHON, is part 1 of the EXPANDING METAL series. This multiplayer battle scenario taken from the Sith side of the HIDDEN FORCE rpg campaign tells the story of one of the conquests of The Trade Federation.

After the Trade federation had invaded Quarr with the help of the mysterious Mister Mugool. They had turned the planet into their new homeworld: NEW NEIMOIDIA. The Greedy Supreme Viceroy Yqu Gunray saw that his neighbour worlds in the outer rim where packed full of resources waiting to be taken.The fact that they where very remote, much on their own and isolated from the New Republic would make them an easy prey for his new droid army.
The first world which fell after Quarr, was the Bezan mining operation on the Sun of the New Neimoidian system.
The next planet would be the Ore rich world of MAHON....

You can lead the Trade Federation invasion forces into battle or defend the planet as the Mahonian forces

STORY LINE:
-----------
Expanding Metal part 1 METAL ON MAHON

In the time between their victory at Qaurr and their defeat against the New republic forces
at the ancient Jedi city in the Aqirait nebula system (see the jedi side of the hidden force part 1 The Search) the Trade federation conquered many worlds in the OUTER RIM. The fact that these worlds where very remote and isolated from the New Republic made them easy prey.

Check for the full story line the Vandhaals website or the Hidden Force rpg campaign

TIPS:

TRADE FEDERATION ASSAULT FORCES:

- Try to attack and break through the enemies defensive line at the mountains as soon as possible and attack their main structures (check objectives for important structures)
- Study the terrain on the map carefully.
- Your forces start at a higher tech level than your enemy and have spynet quicker....so use this fact as an advantage
- Destroy all sentry posts you encounter as this BLINDS the defenders
- And remember you and your allies have a TIME LIMIT so work together

MAHONIAN DEFENDERS:

- Try to hold the line at the mountains as long as possible as this is the easiest part to defend your territory
- you can win this scenario on two ways
Defensive: Hold the enemy for 2 hours (TIMED OUT Victory)
Offensive: Bring the war to the enemies territory and Destroy the Federation Battleship core which is carried by their support assault Tick
- Note that you start in a lower tech level than your enemy and you do not have spynet BUT you have strong defensive points and some heavy assault mechs at the start
- Upgrade your troops and research techs as soon as you can
- With good force deployments you can turn the strongpoints into DEATH TRAPS
- Hold the enemies Objectives as long as possible. they give upgrades to the invaders if they fall.

Very creative multiplayer battle scenario.

Playability:

Once you have found all your bases on the map the playability is very good.You need some good connections (but who hasn't got one nowadays).The map contains a lot of possibilities so you can use a wide range of tactics to win this game.

Balance:

The attackers (Trade Federation) need to have 3 players because with less it becomes more difficult...however it is not impossible ( I won as attacker: 1 vs 3).The forces are well balanced. Although the tf fights against the naboo (called mahonians in the game) the author has managed to balances both forces well. Balance in game experience: I liked it very much that the game can vary between massif bulk attacks and single unit attacks, or defends

Creativity:
I can be short here: the creativity is great.This is one of the vew battlescenarios who has a nice story line. I discovered that it is part of a series of games. The objectives (triggers) are very nice.You keep discovering new things and paths on the map (I have played it now over 50 times) which enable you to make new assault or defence tactics each time.

Map design:
The design is stunning. The big war machines, which are called Assault Ticks, of the Trade federation are amazing.
the map has a lot of eye candy and great terrain mixes.
The hidden turret buildings of the defenders are also a nice feature.

Stoy/instructions:
Although the map looks and is very complex the instructions are very clear (short and to the point).
As already said above the story is nice and this game is part of a series which comes from a campaign the author has created.
