Your Lord has dispatched you and your fellow knights to a small fort guarding the entrance to the Valley in which the Saracen Barbarians hide behind to asses its defences and its possible use as a staging post for an invasion into the very heart of the Arab’s lands. The news is, however, grim. The fort is severely undermanned, its stocks are low and the small band of Conscripts you mustered on your journey barely begins to fulfil its needs. What’s worse is a large force of Arabian troops are heading towards your position, determined to end the nuisance position of the stronghold and starve off an Invasion. Now, with limited men, supplies and weapons, you must gird your lions and prepare for a bitter siege with no guarantee of victory.
This is my first map and is a simple invasion scenario. In this map the first two attacks will come in quick succession, the others are more spaced out. Also, you have no Lord, thought I would make it a bite easier on you. Every time I have let the AI play it out, the defenders where overwhelmed and destroyed by the second wave. Enjoy!
Fellow Knights, Ladies and everyone in between. This is my first map and I know I made it a bit too big (I think a 200x200 or 300x300 would have been better) with a lot of empty space and not alot of detail, however there is a story and a darn good castle. Please review, rate and most of all, be honest, but not too honest, okay a little honest ;).
I have noticed a error in the map when (if) you are defeated, I am working to fix this and will post an updated copy shortly. Don't stop downloading though as I appreciate the feedback.
UPDATE: The lose condition for this map is now the loss of all your troops, so be careful and no, suicide rushes are not adivised.

if you think the map is too big, you can change it by pressing alt and "comma" in the editor. Then click the size you want, and press alt , again. This will cut the edges of yor map off, so be carefull.

Have you won yourself?
I can easily eliminate the counter attack and the 2nd but get stuck on the last attack i think it is!

I have passed the mission before, I thought it was a bit easy so I changed it to make it harder and write in a 'lose' target (if all your troops die). I've made some changes and the map works at last, I've just updated it so give it a go and please someone RATE IT!!!
P.S. I think there are four attacks, each one gets harder and more siege engines are used at each attack i.e. 3 catapults and 3 ballista in first attack, 4 in the next etc.
