The Tale of the Dragon is the campaign in Age of Mythology: Tale of the Dragon.
Due to the rumbling fights of the Titans in the Western world, Yin and Yang are shattered once again. This creates an unseen chaos in the otherwise peaceful China, which is thriving under the rule of Emperor Yao. As a General in the Emperor’s army, Jiao-Long must find a way to restore Yin and Yang and return peace to the empire.
The campaign consists of nine scenarios:
- Rising Waters
- To the West
- From Below
- The Realm of the Dead
- The Water Palace
- A Way Out
- Yin and Yang
- Tale of the Dragon despite loosely being connected to the main campaigns, it has no relation in terms of characters, or story, with the only connection being (according to Cysion, one of the developers) that the events of The New Atlantis have caused the disturbance of Ying and Yang, however despite this connection, the main characters of The Tale of the Dragon never leave China, instead directly summoning the Titan, Pangu.
- Seeing as The New Atlantis takes place 10 years after the Trojan War (roughly 1240-1170 BC) and Emperor Yao ruled over China from 2333 BC to 2234 BC during the Pre-Xia Dynasty, this would make the Tale of the Dragon campaign anachronistic.
- The Tale of the Dragon campaign is one of the most criticized aspects of the DLC, as most people have criticized it for being rather lackluster, not living up to the standards of previous Age of Mythology campaigns, and being loosely connected to the original campaigns.
- Despite Jiao-Long being the main character, Shun replaces him in this aspect (Due to having the most dialogue), the reason for this is unknown, likely due to story changes.
