While the King is away in Southern Iberia smoothing over the embarrassment caused by yourself and Doubletongue during your little escapade there, he has commisioned you, the Abbott of Quiglesbury, to oversee the production of weapons in his absence.
You must journey to an area known as Abbotts Lake and extract the valuable iron resources that lie there, manufacturing the weapons ready for the Kings return. In addittion, you are expected to compensate the King for his travel costs by raising a moderate tax.
You must be careful though, for the area is frequented by Ratty de Puce, an old adversary known to recruit help from other hostile Lords. The King has granted the hire of some of his Knights to aid you and your Monks, and Doubletongue, acknowledging his part in the Spanish Incident, has also promised to send assistance. Complete this task, my Lord, and redeem thyself in the King's eyes ...
This map is the third 'Abbott of Quiglesbury' story, the first being "Special Brew" and the second, a Crusader map, is still in production.
It's a classic style invasion map with a slight twist, designed and tested at normal. It might be possible to play at hard, but I didn't test it for that. Thanks once more to Jalis for playtesting.
