Ladies and Gentlemen. On behalf of the staff at Stronghold Heaven, I would like to cordially invite you to compete in;

The Stronghold and Crusader Fantasy Scenario Competition



As the title suggests, we are looking for a fantasy/ficticious scenario that can be set in either Stronghold 1 or Stronghold: Crusader. The scenario content is entirely up to you, and can be based on either a siege, invasion or economic map. There are only a few limitations, which are set out below, and the competition is designed to allow you all to let your imaginations run riot!

  • No freebuild scenarios or skirmish maps; we want to see full use of the editor, including any events
  • You must produce a full story and/or instructions to accompany the scenario. In addition, you must produce a separate document to explain how and why you chose the scenario, what you are trying to achieve with the map and explain any specific events, landscapes and characters
  • You may submit one Stronghold 1 map and one Stronghold: Crusader map if you wish; two maps per designer

In the case of multiple designers with one account, you can either submit maps designed by both parties, or separated individually, but clearly labelled by the individual designer.

The idea of the competition is not just to allow you to exercise your imagination, but to explore the use of the editor and complete a 'packaged' map (i.e. map, write-up, separate document and screenshots/minimap).

A few other pointers;

  • Eye candy is up to the designer, however you will not be punished if you do not have great swathes of tricks littering the map
  • All entries will be judged by Sulis with assistance from other members of staff. Our decision will be final.
  • You must complete a new scenario, not a map already submitted to the downloads section (although you may use a semi-completed scenario from your hard drive as long as it has not been made public knowledge to others)
  • Entries will be judged on unique scenario design, a strong story and/or instructions, excellent use of the editor and a genuine 'feel' of fantasy or fiction throughout your scenario

The closing date for entries is 13 July 2007.

There will be two winners, one for Stronghold and one for Crusader. The winners will have a dedicated page on the site under the competitions tab with minimaps, screenshots and an introduction to the scenario, including the judges' comments. The map winners will also be added as a news item. Runners up will have minimaps and judges comments. All maps will have a link taking forumers to the relevant download.

Please submit your competition entries to Sulis@heavengames.com. Do not upload your entry to the site until after judging has taken place and the winners announced.

To all of you who play Stronghold 2 and Stronghold: Legends, your turn will be next!

No doubt there will be many questions, so please ask away

We wish you all the very best of luck!

Sincerely,

The Stronghold Heaven staff

I definately think that Sulis needs a break before he makes another competition.

hah, cool prizes! I'll send you the info later.

Thanks Lord Michael and Sir Hugh!

I want to make clear that I have updated the map. There's only one thing that's been changed... If you know you won it quicker than you should (using a shortcut) you should know I blocked it, making it impossible to win easier than it meant to.
Other than that, there's no need to download it again.

Wahoo! First Stronghold contest I've ever entered, too.
Loegaire used top be around here more (before my day) and was a popular designer.
I'll admit I've always been a Stronghold/Crusader fanatic and I still have it as my homepage, but that I was a popular designer was news to me. I've made a few maps, but this was the only one I've ever submitted to the best of my knowledge. Thanks for the compliments anyway though.

Sulis, I'm actually going to have to ask you to send me a copy of my own map. When I got to college a few weeks ago, I had computer problems which culminated in them wiping all my games and save files. I'll need it back so I can upload it, please and thank you. I'll send you my contact info later today too.

On the individual level the response may appear to be a fiction, but fiction in a wider cultural context has a way of appearing to be true.

Yeah, sorry. I was having problems with my CD and I wanted to fix something that was bugging me before I uploaded it.

Great looking map, Leogaire

That castle is vaguely reminiscent of a winged insect, in a way. Most unusual.

And I love stockpiles on boats! I used a small one in my La Muerte Negra map. But your one is much more impressive. It is great to see the workers loading and unloading. Well done!

What is the name of your map again?
(Sadly I don't have Crusader (yet) so I can't play it )

I uploaded it last night after making a last-minute fix, so it should be available to play shortly.

Comments on the other maps, plus the news item and display of your entries, will be coming very soon. I'm working on a layout and content today (even though I should really be working!)

Think of it this way: work is the exertion of energy causing the movement of matter, therefore, you technically are working. You're causing keyboard buttons to move!
