I cannot understand King Alfred's voice....

I agree. In the trailer I can hardly understand a single word said. It just sounds like some deep-throated fellow who has a cold mumbling that you must be his squire.

+1 Alejandro Great map! I would prefer if you the amount of times you got paper from the zombies was more though.

0 Lixis It was a very creative concept, but I just couldn't understand what the king was saying, so subtitles would be prefered. Also, with the fact that the villagers spoke everytime you clicked on them, got slightly annoying.

I couldn't "trade" with the villagers, which I found very irritation, so I didn't finish the map. But it was fun while it lasted.

+2 Nina The idea to add actual voices that talked was great, but I just couldn't understand the king and from that point had no idea what I should do.. also I bumbed into the invisible barriers all the time, I would've liked to explore the stuff you build and not get blocked out.

+4 Liounax It was a awesome mapp!! Tho where did everyone get the paper? I didnt cheat a magical unicorn have them to me. ಠ_ಠ

+1 mcMeAwesome Had some lag at the beginning when the screen was loading but otherwise the map was good, I got stuck some places though:(

+1 Daktronixx A great map up until the part where I get the deed, that keeps crashing my minecraft

2015-11-07 20:21

+1 Super8Mind Ended up deleting the map because the voices crashed my computer. Very well made map though. It was probably more of my computer than the map.

2015-11-05 21:48

+8 Programmer66 I started and the king talked to me, and I didn't understand him at all. So I got stuck and just deleted the map.

+1 BlazeReviewer Is there any language or mature themes in the map?

2015-10-24 20:10

+2 ibelieveyou4now finished the map basically. bug when you give the guy the saddle. map was very short as i finished it in roughly 15 minutes. also disliked the farming for paper from the zombies as it really slowed the whole movement of the map down

+10 Jewellink It was an alright map. Pretty simple. My biggest issue was trying to figure out what the king was saying. Wish there was more of a story. Finally figured out what to do once going through every NPC and seeing what they want. The repeating/ overlapping dialogue whenever you right click on them got annoying fast.

-16 LionDude this maps sucks you cant do anything and you just get stuck when you get the 3 coins

+7 kaidaguy Hey. Loved the map! very creative. loved the use of villager trading as the center of the map. i was wondering and i know i'm someone you don't even know but if you plan on on more maps, could i assist in building. I am actually pretty good.

2015-10-21 02:51

+8 Kiley Where do you go after talking to the King! It won't let me go anywhere and I tried resetting the map :c

2015-10-20 22:21

+7 Fudge ummmmmm AHHHHH I gave the coins for the deed then Minecraft CRASHED!

I couldn't understand the king either,
I harvested all the wheat, used some for charcoal,
which I gave to the guy with a saddle but I don't know what to do next!

The game ends (make sure you have the right version)
Plus I dun understand the king add subtitles ;)

+1 Alex I'm not english-native and this is too much for my body :s i couldn't finish the map ;)

2015-10-17 21:55

+7 bopekeco Love this map! I'm stuck - any help? I've harvested the wheat, traded for coal and given it to the forge guy. I harvested 3 bushes by the palace and got 3 sticks; traded for 3 coins. I can't find anything else to do!

2015-10-17 18:55

+1 bikerchic44 I gave the guy the oxen saddle,
the screen went black and minecraft hung.
I can't give him another saddle because the red cross is next to it.
I have already restarted once because the axe hung in midair and the forest didn't open, I am not restarting again

0 NinjaMaster909 This was a good map, I just wish there was a bit more action, like actually taking part in the battle or something. I also wish that there was text along with the npc's talking, as there were a number of people that I just could not understand, the king especially. Other than that, it was a good map.

+4 bikerchic44 Quoting Xloe:
Interesting idea. Shame that I could hardly understand what the king was saying and I took all the wheat so when I had to reset because I traded with the axeman the axe (the correct one from the forge) and the bread and nothing happened, it reset but there was no wheat. I got incredibly frustrated with this map very quickly. It's a good idea for the trading, but having only limited numbers of trades is infuriating if you accidentally trade the wrong thing you have to redownload the whole map. No thanks!
