Ok then, time for another DS_M map! *cheers*
This is a little harder than my other maps, it has some great treats for you, but beware, some taste bitter ;).
On to the next part, a summary of the story, wich is very large this time, 2088 words! But it is worth the read.
You and the Wolf have been fighting for a long time, then he asks you to come to his castle and negotiate peace as the war is only using up valuable recources and men. Something goes wrong when you leave to ride home again, the steel crossbars that are inbedded in every gate fall and nearly kill you, convinced it is a trap you break the just established peace, 3 years and 2 months later the Wolf strikes with its full force and nearly kills you, you decide to fake your defeat by sending out a peasant in your, the king's, clothes. Happy with this victory the army loses interest in your castle and you can escape, you flee to a neerby castle, or well, castle, pile of rubble would be a better term.
Now, 6 weeks later, the Wolf found out, with the remains of his army he strikes you again, defend you castle!
I hope you all enjoy this map, it is not a part in the KQ series but still a good map.
P.S: Be sure to turn the map around a few times, the landscape looks good from all directions.
I have played it once on Normal. Personally, I did not find it too short on this setting. But I can see how it would take longer to get properly set up on the harder settings. (With the the attackers bashing down the quarries).
The messsages (certainly those near the end) were really well scripted. Well done! It always really adds something for me when those hang together. And the final wolf invasion was a nice touch :-)

A perfunctory and belated comment, I am sure; but "give praise when praise is due". After completing Brave Sir Robin's set, I am doing yours, Sir Knight. Just a thank you for hours of game satisfaction.
