The news is late to reach your ears. By the time you have returned home,
the castle of Darkmoor has fallen to the army of Prince Jon.
A short distance away, your village lies in flames and your family is dead.
As you stand amidst the wreckage, your thoughts turn Northward.
There lies Darkmoor. The prince and his army are still there, getting
fat off the ill-gotten gains of the nearby-destroyed villages, while
the good King's remaining troops lie rotting in Darkmoor's dungeons.
Every ounce of your being cries out for vengeance, but you are only one
man and the Prince's army is massive. You pray to God with all of your might
and a vision forms in the fires of your decimated village; the vision of a White
Cross in the setting sun.
Time is short. The Prince's men will surely return soon. Whatever you decide
to do, you must act quickly…
This map was largely inspired by the "Usurper" campaign by Gordon Farrell and by the
various eye candy tricks discussed on the Stronghold Heaven forums pages. I spent far
too long working and reworking this map. Hopefully, some will find it enjoyable.
This map is meant to be fairly challenging and time consuming. If you're looking for
a large quick battle, than this is likely not the map for you.
