Execution Day

"Hooray! For today is Execution Day!"

Today is execution day and the New King is hungry. Not hungry for the blood of his enemies or anything of that sort, but hungry for a delicious sandwich. And when the King eats a sandwich, man he really EATS a sandwich (10 meat and 10 cheese and 2 Bread are required to feed the King; win requirement). This story takes place in the Kingdom of Irendi, who's southern grassy shores are commonly called the 'fields of the dead'. It has earned this label for the scores of captured enemy lords that have been executed in gruesome public ceremonies. On the typical execution day (like this one) the entire day is treated as a Holiday, and all are expected to attend (the executions themselves involve mandatory attendance). Scheduled to be executed today are the following men:

Skinner, Enemy Lord (Yellow lord) - Skinner was captured in the Battle of HELL AWAITS - where the actual stone walls were stained crimson from the blood of our great and valiant soldiers during the battle. He was a captain in the old Royal Privateers (before the civil war). Requested Method: Cremation (Skinner thought he was being asked of how to dispose of his remains when they asked "how do you want it done then?"). Use the pitch pits or engineers.

Snake-Eyes, Enemy Lord (Black lord) - Snake eyes is a scheming and clever son 'o bitch. He disguised himself (as a refugee) and tried to hide out at Six Pinnacles but was taken after a quick assault. Tried and convicted of Treason Against The King, he requests: Archer Firing Squad.

Headhunter, Native Enemy Lord (Orange Lord) - A small group of native peoples participated in the civil war, joining up with the King in his last days. Headhunter is the leader of that group and is being executed for: Aiding In A Civil Unrest. He requests: "To Die a Warrior's Death", which means by a sword stab to the back of the neck (swordsmen work good for this).

Canadia, Mercenary Commander (Blue Lord) - Captured at Death's Pass when he and a few of his soldiers decided to camp out and "influence by force" a region known to have strong fighters. Tried and convicted on the charges of Theft and Murder, and two charges of moat building in the second degree. Sentence: Death. Requested Method: Stoning (slingers work good on this).

Kill these four prisoners (win requirement) in anyway you see fit. The crowd would like to see the prisoner get a clean death, but the guards want blood and the prisoners want certain methods each (see above). To rebuild Six Pinnacles will take 5,000 gold (win requirement) to get just get the repairs started. Sell some of your resources to raise the money, or stick it to the peasants by jacking up the taxes. Oh yeah dont forget the King's sandwich too.

5,000 gold - Repairs
10 Meat
10 Cheese
2 Bread

Look for some real unique castle design work. I really put in a effort to get this looking right. There is a smoking volcano, the execution stadium, and a compete working road system and gated deer pen (for the meat requirement). Please download and rate this one, if you would please. I will be pleased to see some reviews for once (good or bad - feedback is GOOD)!

Playability: 3.5
This map is fun to play, and quite eye appealing, I love the ideas implemented into this map (Especially the execution grounds design).

Balance: 3.5
The map is enjoyable and not too hard, a great map for begginers and anyone looking for good old medieval execution.

Creativity: 5
I love the use of walls at different heights, the waterside dock area is also very clever. The clever elements of design in this map, were inspirational enough to make me want to try designing a map using the author's technique.

Map Design: 4
I loved many of the design elements in this map. The reason for a deduction here is that personally I would prefer a little more of the map to be used or decorated. But that might be just me :)

Story/Instructions: 4
A fun map with fun instructions :D, I think it adds fun and interest to attempt to kill the lords in the way described (if not a little impatiance with the arrow execution :P).

Additional Comments:
This map is highly creative. It is fun to play, and eye appealing at the same time. It is easy to win, but the fun comes with trying to kill the lords in their requested manner. Good job, and thanks for the fun and inspirational map. This is my first ever map review, but I know a good map when i see one! :)
