For centuries your people have lived in fear of raids and massacres from the mountain clans. Not to mention quarrels with your fellow christians in the valley. You are determined to to end this unhappy state of affairs. By the use of flattery, judicious bribes mixed in with a few threats you have formed a tenuous alliance with your two neighbors. Your plan is to systematically invade the mountains and destroy the Saracen strongholds one by one.
To play along with the story you should join with two European Lords in the plains against five Arab Lords in the mountains. Just a sugestion it can work with many different combinations. Played as as sugested it is VERY HARD. Since you are an European Lord the mercenary post is not available. Enjoy
It's been a while since i've seen another 8ply map. Is your suggestion for the gameplay 3v5? Maybe i'll place myself on the left middle platue,since Ai's might have trouble there i think.

Sorry, I guess I can't count. I did say 4 Arab Lords when it should have been five. Thanks for noticing, I just corrected story. I intended to play the three lower keeps in the plain against the five keeps on the plateaus as I like to follow the story if possible. This is very hard. I also played the three keeps on the left against the other five. It is very hard to get an eight player map without some cramping, however, in most cases the AI is still able to compete. The Caliph is able to use the left middle plateau with no problems.

Von Kamestra if you ever look back here at your past uploaded works and comments then might I request that as you make more maps you try to make them a little less ''checkerboard'' style you know with the rivers surrounding the players and allPlease don't take this the wrong way.
