This crusader map participated in the 2nd Historical Castle Competition. It didn't won (i'm not a pro) but I wanted to post it to receive comments, because I need to get better for the next comp...
Krak des Chevaliers was a very important crusader castle in arab lands, but it was never attacked by the forces of Saladin as he thought it would be very hard to conquer.
What if Saladin have attacked this castle?
Your mission is to defend this mighty castle and proove its defensive power!
There are many invasions and many short events so you should be aware.
The oasis is outside the castle so food would be hard to gather.
There is some stone outside the big inner wall of the castle and some more outside the castle.
Iron and pitch are avalaible outside too.
Protect well your inner wall and the entrance to your castle (by stairs as the door is a fake and it's surrounded by the moat) as you can't make stairs or high walls again!
When the invasion come, select your magnolels and put them to attack other units because I think they start attacking the enemy siege equipment and for that you got your ballistas.
