-Lord Alvod and his subjects are moving south, following a pattern that his family has been following for generations. The North lands his father and mother ruled over have become too cold and harsh to live in. The new lands he moved to are much warmer and they are beautiful. However, he has unkowingly stepped into an area with settlements hostile to outsiders. He finds this out before too long, and now he must stake his claim by his blade.
-Included in this zip file is a minimap, a campaign map, the complete version of the story, and the actual level.
-My first submission to this site. I hope that you all enjoy it. I particularly like those little streams. They were a lot of fun to make. Also, for those looking for hints, move as fast and efficiently as you can, and don't be afraid to improvise!
-Yeah sure. Any reviews would be great.

This map was extremely fun to play for even me, an extemely mediocre player.
Everything was done perfectly for my playing level. The bandits came at just the right time, the invasions were well scheduled, the draughts made it challenging, as well as the invasions. Played at my level, it was a challenge.
The map is somewhat bland, but the scenario and building and troop availability made it awesome. It was like starting the Stronghold Campaign Trail over again - I had forgotten what it was like to play with spearmen and archers.
Map Design: 5
Very good - as I said, the creativity was kind of bland, but the design and the way the scenario and the story and the map all blended together was perfect.
Im not particular here, as long as the story makes sense and is actually a story, it works for me.
An awesome map - I have downloaded all of yours, and will certainly be rating them as well. I'll be looking out for number seven!

Thank you! : ) . Um, number seven is landscaped and stuff. I put up some screenshots but the topic containing them was unnoticed. The problem is it's got technical difficulties which I'm still not sure how to solve yet. However, if I get it to work...it will be sweet.

is that in your frigid north campaign thread?
Glad you mentioned it. I hadn't noticed those new screen shots. They look good! I have left a comment. Should bring it to the top of the list :-)
