The 2nd Stronghold Historical Castle Competition


As designing a historical castle was the most requested contest idea in The Jousting Ground, Stronghold 2 Heaven is proud to present the 2nd Historical Castle Competition.

Unlike previous contests, entries in this contest may be submitted from the original Stronghold, Stronghold Crusader, or Stronghold 2 games. If sufficient entries are submitted from each game, then we may decide to have a winner for each.

We have selected 7 castles for you to choose from (including 3 Crusader castles), and to get you started have found some historical information and floor plans on each of them.

•Carreg Cennon in Wales [castle info * floor plan]
•Warkworth in England [castle info * floor plan]
•Harlech in Wales [castle info & floor plan * aerial photo]
•Conwy in Wales [castle info * floor plan * aerial photo]

Crusader castles:

•Margat (Marqab) in Syria [castle info * floor plan]
•Krak de Chevaliers in Syria [castle info * floor plan]
•Mamure Kalesi in Turkey [castle info * floor plan]

Your entry should be as close to your chosen castle as possible, but can be of any of the available mission types. We'd like you to base any scenario details on historical events, but we're open to some creative 'What if?' scenarios as well.

So what exactly are we asking you to do?

•The map and castle should be based, as accurately as possible, on one of the 7 historical castles listed above.
•The scenario should be based on a historical event involving that castle, or on a feasible What if?

Other rules and notes:

•The closing date for entries is 30th November 2005.
•All scenario categories can be used.
•We will only accept scenarios that have not been uploaded before, but you can submit a scenario based on a castle already featured on Stronghold Heaven.
•Entries will be judged by the SH Staff on accuracy, historical merit and (of course) playability.

First prize: game of the winner's choice, up to US$40
Second prize: choice of HG t-shirt or hat

Entries should be sent to kester@heavengames.com

Good luck!
The Stronghold Heaven Staff

I’m really pleased Kester let me in this competition, she was understanding, and for that I thank her. It’s great others don’t mind either like your good self. Maybe that had an influence, well either way I’m pleased now I’ve finally got my map in. Good luck. Andy

I've entered this comp with a crusader invasion map and I'm not expecting to win, but to get some experience and comments about it...and maybe later enter to another map comp (I hope there will be more) but this time with higher expectations

To Kester: Do you know already the date in which final results will be given?

You have plenty of time

I can't imagine the staff wanting another comp right after this one there is generally a few months break betwen comps, they also seem less frequent then in the early stages of SH which is understandable,

This one we got seven entries, which is pretty good, but the last two there were hardly any. Next contest might be something easier.

Results aren't entirely all in

I do have the results on my work computer now, so the hard drive failure at home won't slow us down any.

Quoted from Sir Hugh:

No one's map sucked. The judges have been impressed with the quality of all of the maps in this competition.
