Ive been really busy this winter with all kinds of projects and other work related stuff. As always, I was soon thinking about making another map and had to get this one out there for you to play.
Kreepers Canyon is a box canyon about 15 miles outside of Terrebonne, Oregon. Situated in the central oregon high desert, its a true desert with mostly sagebrush and tumbleweeds. The canyon was the location of shootouts in the old cattle rancher feuds that happened in the old days. Nows its a abandoned kitty litter factory, and is perfect for military sim games like paintball. We play there with about 40 people, defenders getting to defend the cat litter factory and snipers tower (see map). The caves are also a very defensible spot.
For the game, I put Christians versus the Arabs on this map. You (Christian king in walled area) are determined to take over Kreepers Canyon or die. You ordered your troops to force march (double time) around the mountains. They ran the entire night and set up their trebuchet on the far side of the river as the morning light shone. You begin your attack. You have six years before 1300 screaming arabs attack and they wont listen to pleas of mercy.
If you use the siege equipment provided you can accomplish the mission. If its too easy or too hard let me know and I can tweak it a bit and update it. Otherwise enjoy, map goal is reachable in its current state. Constructive criticism welcome!

ah, good. the ".5" bug is fixed(or else i can't give you a 4.5) It was a hard map, I couldn't beat it. The enemy is all over the map and you have to kill them all. Since that our melee troops suck so the tower must be taken by archers. I would of put my archers behind the hill and kill all the enemies up on the sniper tower, but i didn't have time to play again.
The enemy crossbowmen were too hard to kill, and you could only build flamethrower & arb archer.(no melee)so it might be too hard for stronghold newbies(like me) to play.
It was fun playing a new kind of map like that. The sniper towers, and the 1200 swordsmen -_-|
Map Design: 4
the map design was good, like the hills and shrubs.
you've made a long story but you could of gave some hints
What if some1 hacks and build 100 flamethrowers to defend the 1200 swordsmen? lol jk
Another fun small map.
Just wanna tell you to play my maps too lol.
(i only put up hard ones)

Use the engineers from the treb on the shields and move up missile troops slow on the ridgeline. It will provide full cover in some spots, and then you can indirect fire the tower.
Pikemen work great for clearing the cave system.
Get the iron coming in as quick as possible. Then sell it to make archers. Also crank up your taxes after a while for more gold.
