While away at court my Lord, a general uprising has occurred on your lands. The Welsh Prince Jeffrey has mobilized the populous, seized Chepstow and garrisoned it with a small contingent of troops. You must act quickly to retake the castle with what troops you can muster before it can be reinforced. His majesty has ordered you to retake the castle and gather resources and weapons for the coming campaign to crush this rebellion. Your duty is to hoard enough stone, wood and iron to build another mighty stronghold. You must also build weapons to guard its construction. Due to troop commitments of the crown, it will take months before a large enough army can be assembled to restore order in Wales. You must retake Chepstow and aid in the construction of the new castle to be built at Ogmore.

* Must complete shipment of goods within 30 years
*** Player Notes ***
This is a "Cede Castle" scenario, where you as the blue player must retake the castle and then defend it against attack from your enemies. There is a time limit to achieve your victory objective (by Jan 1300 - 30 game years). This map isnt a hard map to play. It is designed to be a total packaged game with all three elements of game play (siege, invasion and economic). It may be possible to cheat some by deleting certain portions of the castle toward reaching your stone victory objective - I urge you not do this and mine your own stone! There are four major invasions and a few minor ones to keep you on your toes. As always, I hope you have as much fun playing this scenario as I have had creating it. I welcome constructive feedback and comments about my maps. You may contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
