You are the valiant riders known as the Stallions of the East. Barbarians have taken a nearby fishing village, and have captured their sentry as well. Recapture your prisoners and prepare for their reinforcements. As soon as that is finished, you now have to aim for an enemy looming in the mountains to the west.
(more to the story in download)
-now possible to place a quarry.
-now animals to hunt.
-little surprise attacks on the way.
-Build a lot of woodcutters to clear woods for more production.
-Secure your village as soon as possible for your prisoners should be big help to your seige against the Wolf.
-Make use of your riders well.
I downloaded this and I am on my way to victory. Lots of crossbowmen in the towers and along the walls. If you had enough catapults (ie engineers) you could pick away at the towers. Otherwise its charging against massive amounts of crossbowmen, up a narrow mountain pass. No marketplace.

I was playing the map and I cant seem to find a place to put a quarry. If there is not one it would not make it possible to build churches.

The map had alot of things that were not needed like a religous buildings, quarrys and hunters post. The map was way too long with no events to keep the game going. The only strategy was just sending waves and waves of men.
This was right on target. The castle you had to seige was very well defended with many crossbows and overlapping fire. Even though you hav many men at the beginning they are quickly diminshed making this a long hard game.
The circular keep was nice and the enemy's castle had some custom made towers.

This was my favorite part of the map. A nice mountain range with a secret passage running through it which was concealed well.
A paragraph really isnt enough for a good rating. Next time try to tie in more details and more ideas.
A good map that gets hurt from longtivity and a short story line. I liked your map so dont take my comments too badly. Overall a tough challenge keep on designing maps.

Very nice......fun. I liked it.
Although the fort in the mountains has formidable defenders, the revealing of a secret way in made it to easy to beat.
Good map, good background. Again, I liked it.

Very nice. It looks good, well thought out.
Don't know whats up with that last rating, but you had something at least. A 1 is for if there is no story or instructions. If the creator has something, even a few sentences, the rating should be at least a 2. I thought this was deserving of at least a 3.
This wasw a fun map. I've always enjoyed playing your maps.
