It was good, some fun to play but was abit long for an invasion :p Although I think you made it too easy as you place all the buildings to start, I got a tiny bit bored with this as I had absolutey nothing to do in the kindom. And the traveling fairs got abit annoying message after message :p
What can I say? You get enough crossbowmen. Just build a line of stone towers and place like 300 crossbows in there and your done. The invasions gradually got harder aswell :p
Not much creativity, you could of made a harbor and the boat (even if small), although that is hard and I do see this is your first try but on some of your next maps you might want to be more imagintaive :)
Map Design: 2
Nice island in the top-right, looks really good on minimap. The stone and iron mountain seemed abit dull and could of been alot better, achieve greater landscape design by using the equalizer tool to it's extent to create slopes.
Great story, still somthing in it seems missing.. like why was Duc De Puce going to invade you. Good storyline though :)
Work more on the map design and maybe not place any buildings (or atleast not as much) as this spoils the economical side of the invasion :( Especially when it comes to making the crossbow army :p
Hope to see more maps from you.. one day you could be a really good designer :D
