We sincerely appologize for the late release of the second part of the Reign of Fire campaign. There were some problems and misunderstandings.
Here you can download the first chapter in the Stronghold Heaven Community Campaign. As you can see, its several months since it got released.
This map was fairly quickly made, but I hope you enjoy it. In all honesty, it was only made to get the campaign rolling. Once again, we apologize for the late release, luck was not on our side. The other installments will not be released so late as this one, and more time will be spent on them as well.
Reign Of Fire - Valley of Valhorn
Having secured the The Ruins of Samaria your plan is to find a good place for a camp where you can build your strength still further before pushing on to the elders.
You have secured The Ruins of Samaria and gathered your strength for the coming Battle of Kalimdor. However, you must now push on to make contact with the elders. The journey will be long and hazardous but with Samuel and your fearless people at your side you show no fear. The people are ready. You draw your blade to lead the way and search for some words to inspire your faithful followers. “The Dark Lord will not triumph. Forward! In the name of our beloved King Henry we SHALL overcome any evil in our path!” And the throng cheers as they set off in good heart….
Your plan is to find a good place for a camp where you can build your strength still further before pushing on to the elders.
On Normal Setting:
Gather 60 spears
Gather 50 meat
ericgolf - story
Dougleass - terraining and scripting
ericgold wanted me to mention that WDs story for the first chapter inspired him, and helped him writing the story for this chapter.
That's it, we had a few who signed up for playtesting but never replied. I'm grateful ericgolf could make the story though.
Yikes this map is very hard. I didn't lose but I couldn't get popularity up from zero. I love the terraining though. I like place your own keep maps as you can choose different strategic places, this offers som good areas for protection-river and cliffs e.g

I'm glad to hear you liked atleast some parts of it. I expected the worst.

Don't worry Dougleass. A map made by you is always going to be fantastic! Anyway, I'm not very good at playing stronghold, so some better players than myself will probably find this map alot easier (but still challenging). Maybe you could give me some hints on how to get off my feet in this map, so you could email me(firstname.lastname@example.org)
If I completethis map I PROMISE TO RATE IT!
Downloads don't seem to be going too fast. Maybe Lady Arcola could make a section on the homepage like with the 1st map.

Sorry young, can't help you. What I meant with I expected the worst, was that the map is kinda poorly playtested...
