Archers! Ready your bows! Prepare to come about! They're going to pay for insulting Poseidon - and Atlantis!
—Arkantos

Consequences is the second scenario of the Fall of the Trident campaign in Age of Mythology. The main objective is to find Kamos and recover Poseidon's Trident, stolen in the Omens scenario, from a statue of Poseidon.

Summary[]

Kamos the Minotaur has taken the stolen the Atlantis trident to his island base. But Arkantos is about to descend to make him pay for his crime.
—Scenario description

After Arkantos musters a fleet in Atlantis, he heads towards Troy, in order to assist the Achaeans against the Trojans, and break the siege. As the fleet enters the Mediterranean Sea, they pursue Kamos' Pirates.

They stop to an island south of Spain, where Kamos' base is to be found, in order to corner the Minotaur pirate, and return the stolen trident back to Atlantis.

Scenario instructions[]

Starting conditions[]

Differences between difficulty levels[]

  • On Easy, the player begins with Copper Shields researched, and the Pirates have fewer units and towers in their base.
  • On Moderate and above, the Pirates begin with the Feet of the Jackal upgrade for their Anubites.
  • On Hard and above, the Pirates have more units and towers in their base, and also begin with several Pirate Ships, which they will use to harass the player.
  • On Titan, there are fewer Pigs in the player's starting area, and the Pirates have even more units and towers across the map. They will also cast the Plague of Serpents god power on the water near the player's base a few seconds into the game.

Objectives[]

  • Advance to the Classical Age and explore the island.
    (Remember, you must first build a Temple before you can advance to the Classical Age. You are not yet strong enough to attack the pirate town.)
  • Train an army and destroy the pirate Town Center.
    (The pirate Town Center is well-guarded. Train a mix of Hoplites and Toxotes, and don't forget to upgrade them.)
  • Corner and attack Kamos the Minotaur.
    (Kamos is heading for the cliff top east of the pirate settlement.)

Players[]

  • Arkantos (Poseidon): The player begins with Arkantos himself, along with a Kataskopos, five Toxotes and four Villagers, as well as a Town Center. They are also provided with generous amounts of resources, but are restricted to the Classical Age and limited to 125 population.

Enemy[]

Neutral to Enemy[]

  • Kamos (Set): Kamos himself appears once the Pirates' Town Center is destroyed.

Neutral[]

  • Shipwreck (Zeus): This player consists of a single Shipwreck, that provides 600 wood, 400 gold (300 wood, 200 gold on Hard and Titan) once within the player's Line of Sight.

Strategy[]

Shipwreck

The location of the salvageable Shipwreck

This guide is applied to Hard difficulty. It is, of course, also applicable for the other grades of difficulty.

Immediately as the scenario begins, the player's first task is to order their Villagers to build a House and a Temple. They should advance to the Classical Age as soon as possible with Ares, as the player will lack cavalry and siege weapons for this scenario. In the meantime, they should construct a Dock, Storehouses and Granaries, in order to exploit the nearby resources, and the Kataskopos should scout the western part of the island for Pigs and the Shipwreck, found to the northernmost tip of the island (but beware of Spearmen).

Another thing that is quite recommended is to erect Walls to the south of the starting Gold Mines, to avoid attacks from this spot. Once the player reaches the Classical Age, they should quickly build an Archery Range, to deter enemy Axemen raids, and gather enough favor (and food) to train Cyclopes (the Will of Kronos upgrade is strongly recommended, as it saves time and adds much needed crush damage) and some Hoplites. Do not forget to fully upgrade the human units as well, including Ares' myth technologies.

Once the player has enough forces, they should first wall the passages from the eastern to the western part of the island, to delay raids. After that, they should train two Transport Ships (and research Enclosed Deck), garrison them with troops, and sail to the easternmost part of the island, where there are no Towers. There, disembark and attack the Town Center with the Cyclopes immediately.

After the Town Center is destroyed, Kamos and three Anubites will show up. Kill the Anubites quickly, and then focus on Kamos. Once the player's units begin attacking him, the scenario will complete.

Trivia[]

  • Based on the in-game map, the island where this scenario takes place appears to be Majorca, in the Balearic Islands. However, the location is far to the southwest of where the real-life Balearic Islands would be.
  • After the scenario is completed, Kamos escapes in his (literally) hand-fed Leviathan, which is referenced in Kamos' mythology section. This is the only appearance of this specific Leviathan.
  • The Shipwreck that appears in this island is one of two cases of salvageable Shipwrecks.
    • More specifically, Greetings from Greece features a trio of Shipwrecks to the north of the player's starting position, that provide 300 gold.
