I'm not a castlebuilder. Loving small farms in small dales, loving calm shallows and streams running down, loving forts that has only a chapel, a stable and a watchtower, as it were I'm a bonsai-manorbuilder. Though I also love chances "freebuild" has, I may update this map as "invasion" or "economic"(collect-arms-type).
"That day I first beheld the coast, and grieved to have a lifeless view, oh my lord, King deceived you! This is the map. Your new vassalage is a truly deserted and barren land, just cliffs, sea gulls, clouds, hills, shower, deer, streams, heath, tiny fields full of rocks, smoky mountains full of revolts! Yes indeed, my lord, I remember the words told by that monkey-faced, dung-made, old lecherous slug in the cesspit-throne! In exchange for your betrayal...mmm, for your support, he promised you a vassalage where is flooded by milk and honey and you will be steeped to your head and drowned... My lord, in truth, you have recieved a most barbaric frontier of this kingdom and you will be steeped in battles and blood! Oh my lord, please tell me a word you have to tell me. Yes? Loudly? Yes, yes, yes, yes indeed! VENGEANCE is the word! Make him learn a lesson! You can take back your old vassalage and more, oh I mean, of course, the throne! But now, you must endure, must foster your power. Fortunately this new vassalage is far from Home and you can keep your dogs as defences toward cheiftains. My lord, King's Navy guarantees your supply of ARMS, ALES, PITCH. About arms, you must equip your men to be respectable, otherwise chiehtains despise your power. But I was reported that chieftains also supported by King's faction, yes indeed, how dirty that toad is! Please look the map, my lord. Arable land is limited to the coast area. Then, I found two costal points for QUARRIES and two mountainside IRON MINES. Mainly bandits and chieftains come from mountain.(use F1-key) Now, my lord, plan your castle, gather your people and sail to your new vassalage!
