Install to: stronghold/maps
TRY TO SIEGE!
At the foothills of the mountains,
near rivers which flow to the sea,
a keep was founded, built into the very mountains.
In this keep stood the Noble Lord,
not worshipped by his people nor hated.
He was all that stood against the pirates and brigands who swarmed from the sea.
The first and last defense of all the Inlanders.
The people of this land thought that war was petty
and it would never touch their fair land. The people were
surrounded by mountains, "they thought". Who could reach them?
The people had no worries or wants; the land was rich and inviting,
and gold was never needed, because the Lord never required taxes.
His keep was self sufficient.. This lord who the people rarely saw,
was always fortifying his castle walls and not interested in taxes.
So the people left him alone to watch their shores. The people never
cared if their Lord was adept at watching their shores, nobody ever bothered them.
Who had a care in the world?
Time passed and others learned of the land through the foothills,
As always, bored people gossip and proud people brag. Eventually Others
learned of these arrogant people. they thought of themselves better than most.
People were hired and preparatins made. You want what they think so little about.
THE LAND..... The RICH FERTILE LAND...
can you take it?
Do you want the land that you can't reach? There are ways to get
there... but their seems to be a few obsticles in the way? A few
Archers to kill and a few crossbowmen to bat away, but is that all there is?
Reach the keep, then step through the felled doors,
and claim the land that you have to earn.
BE careful which way you go, you may try to take more than you can,
there is more to all this than meets the eye...
because in your time of preparing a strong army is sitting in your
way. The fool Lord that has been sitting in his keep has been anything
but idle as you may find out!.
This scenario is geared to Invasion. You being the attacker, the
aim being to take the Keep by assault and kill the Lord of the Hill.
there is more to this than charge in and kill the lord because
I assure you it will not work!
There is no real time limit, so take the time to plan your attack.
In defending have fun with the pitch, timing is crucial...
Should you attack the initial stronghold or take out the lord at haste? you decide...
don't take any section of the map lightly.. there are surprises.
