As the forces of the famous spainish warlord Marcos Detres the Fair, they rest in the castle of Castio De Acazaber the greatest castle in the south of Spain, His forces take up thier guard posts.
As Marcos Climbs the stairs of the great tower he see's a great shadow coming towards him as he shouts "Scouts go to the north" As soon as he runs back to te top his scouts are seen galloping to the mound they gallop back faster eaxh second Marco demands explaination and gets the word of a great army coming towards them.
Marco breaks a deal with the neiboring lord that if he supplys him with weapons and food stocks that he will attack the enemy forces base to draw them back.
A limited amount of troops are available so defending this base of locations will be emense.
The fate of the free people under Marcos the fair, are in desperate need.
Interesting conflict here with multiple attack routes and the fighting is fierce at some points. Quite fun, and the castle works and looks good too.
I found it a tad easy on the attacks and a little mundane on the economic goal. Just turn off the bread in the granary and you have your goal eventually.
The castle is quite new and original and deserves the 5 here. The traps and elevation blending alone are the superior level in creative work.

I liked the whole battle and it took a while to get set up to defend. It all begins on the battlefield, and then a slow economic slog at the end to meet the goal. Get your sword production going and supplied with a sure source of iron.

Turn off bread in the granary or you will never make the 1300 goal. Always make swords.
