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

Cool. I'm not sure how my map would've stood up to that! You have got realy good with Himalaya height terrain, your mountains look realy natural.

All that himalayan looks really impressive. I wish you two would continue. But atleast we others will have a chance to win, heh.

Check out Rome, Duomo, Troy, and Ghost.
Also, check out my campaign! First chapter, second, third, fourth, and the fifth chapter.

if you submit before 11 a.m. BST 14th it will still be the 13th somewhere on the planet (just east of the international date line. Maybe the Gilbert islands - or maybe they are west of it - maybe Fiji then?).

edit
Hang on. BST is gmt+1 ? then that means you have 13hs not 11.
Oh heck. I'm off to bed. I can't think staight

Alas, I was unable to submit my map. A virus hit my computer on the 9th and there wasnt much left . All I've got is a half done version on my flash drive. Ah well least I'll be able to see everyones elses.

To err is human - and to blame it on a computer is even more so.

Okay, the entries received are as follows:

Ericgolf: 'Mined Over Matter' (Stronghold)
Von Schmidt: 'Siege of Ubadar' (Crusader)
Tammo VII: 'The Leven Wars Chapter 1: Holly Skogan' (Stronghold)
Loegaire: 'No Place Like Home' (Crusader)
Dougleass: 'Ghost' (Stronghold)

(have I missed anyone?)

All the entries are being distributed to the judges and we'll keep you posted on our progress. Thanks to all those who have entered the competition, and let's not forget those who started designing but were unable to submit an entry for various reasons. I'm sure there are some fantastic maps out there..

Best of luck everyone!

Yes. I was sure Younghappy entered a map. I am sure I read a post of his saying how he had time available now he has submitted his comp map? (or maybe I dreamt it)

So it looks like we can all be pretty confident of at least 3rd place (or nearly, if YH's map is in the comp)

I have many scripting problems. I probably could get them sorted out but it would be unfair on Sulis and the other judges to submit it so late.

I will release it as a normal map.

Rats! I cannot tell you how much I had hoped the deadline would again be extended. Alas, one must work for a living.

I had alluded in an earlier post that I did not think I would get to submit a map. I tried

Harlow's Wood 85% complete.......Along with Young Happy I guess. To the map room!

With the combination of power cutting lightning, nagging parents telling me to do stuff and scripting problems, I could not get it finished in time.

Terraining is 100%
Story is 100%
Scripting is done but needs to be refined alot

I was unable to submit on time as my computers monitor had some problem and the local guys took the monitor and dropped it so i couldnt enter .To the map room for me too but i am sure it will do great as a normal map.
