Onward Men!

VICTORY CONDITION: Destroy the Amazon settlement.

DEFEAT CONDITION: Your colony has been completely destroyed.

SITUATION: Nothing is going to stop us now. The land bridge will be ours soon, and then the Amazons can start looking for a new place to live.

REPORT BY HELIOS: My friends had taken to the offensive, but the response of dear Q'nqra seemed far too restrained. My friends brushed my concerns aside with another round, reminding me that she was only a woman, and the more they drank the less of a threat she became. Sure, there was a march ahead, and a land bridge to conquer, but couldn't everyone see that the destruction of the Amazons was near?

 

Hints

As you can see from the map above, the passage is now closed.

Since you are starting off with a solid infrastructure, you will only have to work on gearing up your economy.

There is very little raw materials in the main part of your colony (except fish). For this reason it would be wise to set up a trade route early on to the land mass in the northwest.

You should also get an early start on building a tool smith's works and send the goods produced to the new colony there where you can set up mining facilities. Of course, it is also a good idea to build a couple fisherman's huts there.

You should secure the passage to your opponent early, ideally using large towers.

As soon as your defenses are stong enough, you should destroy the castles of the Amazons with your cannons. Don't forget to reload.

In this way you can lure your opponent into bringing his troops into the trap (your well protected fortress) and you won't have to battle against a huge army later.

All of your soldiers should have the highest rank and should also have a fighting strength of at least 70%. This will make it easier to defeat the Amazons.

It is possible for you to land at the narrow place (in the north of the Amazon territory) with transport ships and then capture the large and small towers there, choking off your opponent's supplies of coal and iron ore.

You can then launch a second attack in the south and cripple the production of iron bars there. There should then be no further problems taking control of the rest of the enemy territory. Make use of your cannons to shorten the process of capturing the remaining towers.
