This is my first attempt at a Stronghold map, so any criticism from you guys will be welcome. The rivers effectively divide the map into 4 quadrants, the 2 on the right where you'll opt to build your castle. but where should you place it? The bottom left if the most defensible and forces invading troops to walk further (during play, push the F1 key, then create the invasion of your choice), but restricts what buildings you can place behind walls, and the resources aren't very plentiful. The top left parks you right next to the stone and iron mines, and trees are plentyful, but bears roam freely in this area. Choose wisely where you place your keep.
I've left this map unlocked for anyone to adjust as they see fit. I've also included the cede scripts, and have disabled them for this map. If anyone likes this map of mine, and wishes to create a cede scenario, please give me some credit for my part. Hope you enjoy it!
