--------the map----------- this map is placed in Norway at the end of the Viking time, when the king Olav Trygvason was fighting a war to turn Norway to christianity. the story is fictional! --------the story--------- Two years ago our city was raided, by an attack from the Rat and the Pig, and burned to the ground. After two years of hard work to build up what was lost, tha Rat and the pig has com bak to finish what they started. It is time to seek aid from the gods, but not from the old heden gods of norse, but christanity,the one and only -God-. The King Olav Trygvason has promised his aid if you turn your peasants to christianity, and sends him a shipment of ale. -------hints----------- you'll need at least three hops farms, and one or two churches. the invasions aren't so big that they are a threat,but they can be a bother if you should lose your five crossbowmen. Good luck! ---------- i'm hoping this map will do well in the Castles of Wood,men of leather-compition. -Well i certainly did, it landed on 3rd place with 23.59points
Great map from Syndens, really enjoyed it! It really captivated the whole castles of wood feel. It played through very well, always keeping you busy with lots of invasions. The balance as well was very good indeed, it was obvious that careful playtesting had gone into this.
The map design was very nice indeed, good fort backed up agianst the cliffs. Only one thing that confused me a little, something that I have seen a bit recently was the fact that two of the rivers flowed away from the sea and not towards it! Doesn't matter much, just a little amusing! On the whole the map design was very creative, my favourite parts were the rocky cliffs and marshland. Good stuff!
For storyline I was undcecided between 3 and 4, (for judging I could give a 7/10). But I am in a generous mood so you can have the 4! This is a good map and it is nice to see it up there having 4.0. Nice work!
