Hannibal Barca has miraculously crossed the Alps and invaded the mighty Roman empire. However, his army is emaciated and tired from the long, treacherous journey.

New Lux Alliance Map: Ancient World - Leuctra
Lux Alliance travels back to the days of antiquity, with the new Ancient World - Leuctra map.

(image)

"The newly established democracy of Thebes proclaimed their intention to re-establish the Boeotian League, an alliance of sovereign cities and townships. The mighty Spartans had previously disbanded the League and viewed this as a threat to their dominance over central Greece.

The Spartan King, Agesilaus, refused to recognize the Boeotian League and immediately dispatched an army to put down this new insurrection. While initially caught by surprise, the Boeotian's regrouped and awaited the Spartan army near the town of Leuctra."



Find this new map in the Map Manager inside Lux Alliance.

New Lux Alliance Map: Medieval Battles - Grunwald

The Medieval Battles map series continues to grow with the new release
of Grunwald...

(image)

For years the Teutonic Knights have been raiding the lands of
Lithuania and Poland, taking control of strategic trade routes and
ports in the name of Christianity.

As a result, Lithuania and Poland form an alliance and unite their
forces in an attempt to repel the raiders and reclaim their lost
lands. In secret, King Vytautus and Supreme Commander Jagiello meet at
Czerwinsk and begin crossing the Vistula River. It isn't long before
Grandmaster Ulrich von Jungingen of the Teutonic Order is alerted to
the invasion and quickly moves to intercept.

The stage is set for the largest battle in Medieval Europe, the
outcome of which will change the course of history!

Lux Delux Map: SILKEN SAILS

2016-11-17T21:05:31-05:00

(image)

"Silken Sails" is a Pirate themed map sporting ships and sea monsters. This map is a tribute to all you Luxers... inspired by A Special Luxer.

Ships can access their own ports (see flags) and other ships. The exception is Mnemo's Plunder. It can also attack SEA MONSTERS.

The Sea monsters can attack ports, ships, and other sea monsters... However, due to their hunger for human flesh, they result in negative income.

Have Fun Luxers!
