My first map...probably insanely easy to most of you...comments welcome.
The guard on duty scanned the horizon silently from his vantage point upon one of the 3 towers of the castle.
"See anything?", yelled his partner from down below.
His eyes swept across the dark and misty wilderness, the last bit of flat and habitable land before the mountains that seperated one kingdom from the next. The castle was built solely to serve as an outpost, and hold off the occasional band of bandits, nothing more. Currently it housed several defectors from the enemy, who, in return for amnesty had offered to lead an army to the backdoor of a major stronghold that guarded the one pass through the mountains.
As the guard prepared to go down to the keep to get a mug of ale and some food and rest, he saw something out of the corner of his eye. A light. No, many lights, and they were moving towards the castle.
