The King has asked you to build up a new castle far to the south of the country. Your scouts have been on the lookout for a suitable location now for many days now. Finally, one of them reports back to you, and tells you of a valley. It has a large river running down the center, with plenty of defensive opportunities for a castle. There are some resources scattered around the countryside that should assist you quite well: A couple of deposites of iron ore and some trees. Also, a cliff face to the north has recently broken apart due to erosion, and provides a good place to site some stone quarries. Good luck, My Lord, and happy building!
This is a Free Build map I made to fill some spare time. I've tried to make it a nice little piece of countryside for you to build a castle up in: there are resources around but not in extravagant amounts. I've put in a couple of signposts so you can test your castle by pressing the F1 key while playing and specify an army to attack you.
