The curious incident with the death of Lord Middlefrithom

- The Assassin Chronicles 1 -

During the last years, the English and the French crown widened their influence and control among the lands of the east. Sometimes by force, sometimes by bargain.
Many cities are now under the administration of Lord-governors, and constantly people from the west settle in those towns.
Abadir is a small town at the coast of the black sea. The administration is incumbent upon the lavish Lord Middlefrithom – was incumbent upon lavish Lord Middlefrithom that is.
This morning, the Lord has been found cold and stiff in his private rooms, dead as a stone.
Rumour has it that he has been assassinated in his sleep, has his throat cut from ear to ear.
It seems that someone had something against the late Lord´s attitude of wasting other people´s money. But who exactly?
And how was it done?
No one can explain any details and no one remembers someone entering or leaving the Lord´s room. No traces or clues were left.
Being interrogated, some guards remind shadows moving behind them or in the corner of their eyes. They cannot recall a face or a person actually, nothing more than shadows.

Right they are
A shadow you were trained to be.
Not that you disliked the Lord Middlesomewhat personally, in fact he was a very amusing guy.
The only problem is that someone paid to see him dead. That´s it. Dead simple. You do not care for motives as long as the price is right. You do not even know if it was one of the Arabian princes or one of those western intruders, but someone made his homework and recalled a long forgotten ally. Loyal, as long as the payment suits.
It has been a long time since the clan of the Assassini last appeared in the open.
As you and your comrades ride off, leaving the city in dismay, you feel that it is just a beginning.
Some others will recall a long forgotten lethal weapon. - The clan of the Assassini…



Informations:
I tried my first Assassination Scenario.
It is rated hard because I just have to get a feeling of how other people react to certain situations. Perhaps you find ways to accomplish this map I didn´t think of.
By the looks of it you can afford to loose one assassin and still win.
In my eyes it is not possible to completly stay hidden, but if you got seen...run like hell and find some secure spot.
I would appreciate some feedback on how you liked this map, how you solved it and how difficult it was.
This would help to balance further Assassination maps to come. :)

grin ;-)
Thought such a title might be something new.
It´s hard to come up with new ideas as time goes by. (I´ve heared even Pixieland has been involved in the middle ages...:) )
If this maps plays good I will make it the first part of a series.


By the way: There are more assassins on the map in the editor than will appear in the game.
Anyone knows how to fix this ?

well, in fact there ARE more assassins. At least in the editor (See above) If anyone knows how to fix this problem, please tell me...
k4pod I am having the same problemb. I placed 140 archers, and when i launch the game, there were only 100! Also, other units I placed disapeared, leaving odd chunks in my formations. At first I was worried, then I saw that Warlord_Designs maps had the same problem, and I settled down, placed more units, and decided that this thing was a strange feature in the game, or a small flaw in my computer. I'm leaning tword the first, because the minimap of the map showa all units untill I launch the game, when, 2/7ths of my units disaper into a rip in the space-time contuinum.
