Dc minimap the rhean floodlands

The Rhean Floodlands is a province on Kronus and one of the locations in Dark Crusade.


Made of the tons of silt the River Rhea dumps into sea, the Floodlands are a tightly-packed series of small islands covered with dense foliage. The Floodlands support a diverse ecosystem, including a large Kroot population.

An archetypal tropical climate pervades the Rhean Floodlands, featuring high temperatures, plentiful rains and pervasive vegetation. The silt islands of the region feature only mild topography.

A small map usually held by Orks, this can be tough because of the initial rush. If your honor guard is small, you will probably have Orks running around your base in a minute or two. Luckily, they have a habit of attacking your buildings, making it easier to kill them off.

When you have handled the first enemy rush, fortify the Strategic Point by the river in case they make more attacks (sometimes they just don't, unless you provoke them by attacking an outpost) while you gather resources and tech up to tanks and the like. When you have superior units, just advance counter-clockwise and take it all away from them.

The enemy bases are on the northeast and northwest hills, with some buildings between the top-left Strategic Point and the Relic. Your secondary and tertiary bases would go on the southeast and southwest hills on your side of the river. The three Strategic Points closest to the river on the enemy's side will retain any Listening Posts you put on them, considerably slowing an attack on the province. With Necrons, position a Monolith on the hill so that you can activate and teleport it across the river if the province is attacked.
