Majesty 2 – Completed!

Well, I’ve completed the campaign at least.. I have the extra missions, and various expansions to go! 😉

My Sean Connery sound-alike advisor said that Rafnir would attack if he sees my flag.. but I found him marauding through my kingdom on day 2, before any of my buildings were even completed and certainly before I’d set any flags!

On this first visit, Rafnir informed me that he didn’t come here to eat my underfed heroes.  Well, as I didn’t have any buildings yet, I didn’t even have any heroes!  Before he flew away again, he blasted away the progress I had made on my Ranger’s Guild..
