Your father king Uther of the Pamesia leads the army against cruel and terrible king
Eard. Your father killed him in the biggest battle. Everything appeared that in the Pamesia
will be peace, after long ears of war. Your father sends you to your uncle Horos with gold. To help rebuild his ruined castle. But
on the route you have been attacked by the unknown group of soldiers. Only by the luck you
hide all gold and not been killed. Some poor villagers found you almost dead. They saved
your life. After a few days you retuned home. But not alone, with you had returned one
villager. He told to your father important news about lord Eard. He had 3sons. Two sons are
in the Pamesia and they are planning revenge, and another one brother is in the long trip
with his armies. They have returned to Pamesia approximately in the year 1426 and together
they strike to your father. But the villager knows where the most dangerous of sons are
hiding; it’s near his village in the castle Mounter. Your father gave to you quest, build
castle near village and destroy enemy castle.
Country Heloe Heloe is the most mysterious country in the Pamesia. Lies on the shores of biggest
known lake Loke. Some rumors tells that there are thousands of paths which leads from
anywhere to nowhere. Some rumors tell that before many hundreds years ago, here lived the
most powerful magician and he could destroy everything and could make anything. So that is
why the country is so strange. Sharp mountains. High waterfalls. big rivers leading through
the mountains. And peaceful lowlands.

I do believe this is the best Stronghold mission I ever played. It has taxed my brain like no other.
I tried reviewing this, but the review was rejected. An admin said he had "concerns" about my awarding Deadlock a top rating for every category, especially since I didn't know what balance was and I never read the story/instructions. So I've tried again, rather more seriously.
For playability is must get a 5. I've been playing it for ages, and although I have to perform the same actions again and again, e.g. deleting the ruined castle to get the stone, I'm still interested. I have wondered about the victory conditions - a few times I got a defeat message when I thought there was still life in the old dog, but I seem to get around this situation just by having a more convincing defence.
For balance, I suppose I'd go for 4, maybe 3. Oh, alright, let's say 3 to keep the admin happy. It's as impossible as it claims to be and not suitable for everyone.
Creativity is 5 again. No other mission has had such vicious attacks. I repelled a number of really quite huge attacks and then attacked the enemy castle, to find I need spearmen to fill in a moat and laddermen to scale walls. If I got a surprise, then it's creative.
Map design is, surprise surprise, 5. It's a nice enough map, with problems preventing creation of the perfect castle.
For the story/instructions, say 4. a lot of thought went into it.
I don't see how the extra mission that was mentioned could be done with Stronghold's lousy scenario editor. Could someone please tell me how to find it?
