Attempting to colonize and reinforce the southern coast of the kingdom, the King has given land grants to several small time lordships.
One of these minor lords is you.Your land is a rocky peninsula and some nearby bits of land. The inhabitants are a small village of people who's purpose is to service the nearby lighthouse as this is one of the most rocky and treacherous areas of the coast.
Keep the lighthouse manned and build up a strong economy. There is a nearby quarry area but no iron, trees are numerous and there should be sufficient farmland for your new land. Do well and the King may take notice.
Authors note, this is my 3rd scenario and my first freebuild, maybe a siege next? I need to touch up on castle design. If the stilt doesn't appear on the lighthouse hit space twice and it will show up...... usually. Just hit F1 for invasions or events as there are two signposts. Please review or rate ;).
Oh, and be sure to check out the boat design, i didn't mean it to look like that but it sure does look interesting, and be sure to check out my other maps.

Well... A freebuild. There's never much to do on freebuilds except building. But i'll give it a 4.
I'll just give it a not too much-not too low scoring...
A weak 4, because costal, or island maps are not new, but still something more than just a grassy field. And also the eyecandy contributes to the four. One of the best freebuilds I think. Has very nice eyecandy on it.
Map Design: 5
Couldn't be done better. Flawless map design.
Not enough to get a 4 or 5, but there is a story.
If you want a recently submitted freebuild, you should get this one. (save Happytown)

Thanks for the 5 in map design. Hmmm maybe I should have done something with it like an invasion now that I think of it... oh well. I downloaded Happytown, by the way. And I wouldn't say the map design couldn't be done better... *cough*Devil's pass*cough*
Anyway I had fun making this map. Took me about 2 hours at night and a few on a sunday morning. It was rainy, my favorite type of day. Now you know. =)

Maybe ;-) My castles just don't end up right. Oh well, I'll try again. I'm thinking about making a Crickhowell castle but I can't get a floor plan...
Edit: Now I look at this a few weeks and 2 maps after and think...this is disappointing... I'm way better than this... I would change so many things...
