After King's death Your worst nightmare came true. Noone have respected King's last will, prince Robert have been caputed, and the country has to face a civil war.
Duke Wiliam Coswooll,also known as the Pig, becouse of his crest, has captured a few main castles at the North, other garrisons have declared their support for Coswooll.
Surrounded in shoreside keep of Ellenoor, You have to stop Pig's troops march to royalist South,and collect enough goods which are sought by the garrison of Moonfang - the sieged capitol of South.
This is my first map which I have decided to upload here. At least this one is working as I want it to, and is also quite challenging for me (altough I'm a weak player). Hope that it will give some of You great fun.
I played this map all the way through the first time on normal difficulty. It was fun the whole time. You have multiple goals to reach but have plenty of time to achieve them. The pig attacks about three times, with siege equipment. Its good enough to keep me playing and doesnt have any errors. So I will give this a 5, also here is my score.
Playing Level: 5000
Troops Lost 20%: 8000
79 Stone Extra: 790
31 Crossbows Extra: 1550
19 Leather Armour Extra: 950
On normal the attacks are a little easy. I thought I might have to use my surplus of crossbows during the last invasion. But after I destroyed the last two rams, I decided not to give the order to suit up the crossbowmen.
Good map that uses multiple economic goals and invasions against a easily defendable castle. Uses the natural terrain effectively to make the draw happen. Good work, and worth a low five.
Map Design: 4
Some of it is effective, some not so (the siege tower didnt attack). When you decide to include seige equipment in the invasion forces, I find its very helpful to play it a couple of times to test how it works. Sometimes you dont want to have to play and wait the whole game through to see the end invasion, after making a change. But thats the trick here. You might also try moving the start date up to the last year of the map, just to play the invasion to see if its good to go. This is not always possible with cedes though. I liked the mangonel use and ability to redesign the castle to my needs.
I read the entire write up without skipping it in boredom. Good enough to get it in the 4 category on write up, but room for improvement in length and details.
"Thumbs Up" from me, and I will watch this authors career with great interest.

Thank You Lollard for review, I wasn't expecting that Ellenoor would get such a high mark and so many good words from You. :-)
