This is my first map, so the balance may be slightly off. The basic story is that King's Vale, a small town based around river trade, is under attack by a far superior force. The local lord (you) has been called in to help defend the town. Most of your troops are villagers who have armed themselves with what weapons they have (bows and spears and maces), along with a few of the lord's "elite" guard (knights, swordsmen, pikemen, and a force of crossbowmen). Use the defences provided and your archers to whittle down the number of enemies. A word of warning: most of your men are not in position when the scenario starts, as they have run to get what weapons they can. You have precious little time to reposition them, too, as the enemy starts attacking as soon as the map loads. Apart from that, good luck and enjoy the game!
Thanks for your review! In truth, I expected to fare much worse on this map. The problem with the AI has me flummoxed... I'm not quite sure how to deal with it. Previously in this scenario, the AI would just stop after the first few gates. I'll see if I can fix it up. As for map design.. well, in this case, I wasn't really concentrating on it. I guess I should more in future. And story.. first time I uploaded it, I put in a long descriptive story... but the upload failed for some reason (I think due to the ' in King's Vale)... and I didn't have time to retype the story. Thanks for your review!
