I found this map to be quite simple but I enjoyed it. There was a large range of buildings and soldiers. The gaps in the invasions were a little too large so I entertained myself by filling the entire valley with moats...
For balance I found this map a little too easy for my taste. By the time the first invasion was there I had platforms full archers and a few bandits attacked. Fires were easily put out, lots of resources, and by taxing the drunk peasants i soon had my 25000, ect.
I like the idea of the land of milk and honey, I just dont know where I've heard it before... Anyway I liked the nice big, simple fountain in the middle of nowhere though the symetrical trees made it look a little unnatural.
Map Design: 3
The map was a little basic and bare and the river was a little wierd with water flowing off of the side of that hill. Again I liked the fountain.Just needs a little more terrain work, apart from the north east hills its either flat or high.
Not much to say here, the story was a little empty with it just saying you won some land from the wolf. I would also have done a spell and grammar check.
Additional Comments: Not my favorite map but I dont hate it. Happy gaming! Keep it up you can only get better!

I did it. When I started playing, for a long while I thought the author had forgotten to do enemy attacks. When they eventually came, my keep and settelement were surrounded by thick walls packed with archers, and the enemy made no progress. This mission was pretty easy, with the only difficult aspect being fires.
The requirements were stringent: population 195, tons of gold, ale, crossbows, and blessed people. It would have been more interesting if the enemy had been at all threatening. By the end of the game I had the two enemy spawning points surrounded by archer-filled walls.
My keep and settlement had walls around them and there was absolutely nothing outside them, but I still didn't get the "Complete Castle" box ticked.
