Story
-----

You were marching around the country side at the head of your troops, looking for some castle to pop out at you, one which you could defend. It didn't really have to be
anything special. A bit of mostly intact ruins that pretended to be some sort of fortification would work. It was not very often that you had just run into a castle, but it had happened before. This time you were thinking about heading to your brother's castle. It was small, from what you could remember, but you knew that didn't really matter. Some random brigand, or so that's who seemed to be leading, was heading an army toward you to destroy you. You didn't really know why exactly they were chasing you, you didn't know what you had that they wanted. It didn't really matter though. Your men were quite simply the best of the best. They were tough, they were smart, and they were calm. They knew what they were doing. They also had a good leader - you. You had your tactics down. Even with your numbers being so low, you knew with a fortified place you could win out against virtually any force.
You made up your mind to head off to your brother's castle. The next day, you arrived there, and you didn't see anyone outside the castle, or on the walls. You went through the gate, and everthing was empty. There was nobody here. For whatever reason everyone had left. You scratched your head. First you have someone assail you for seemingly no reason, then your brother's castle is completely empty. There are no signs of death, plague, battle, antything. Everything was just gone. You decided that you would find your brother later. You had more important things to deal with at the moment. Your enemy would probably reach you the next day...

Author's Notes
--------------

I made this randomly one night. Not really sure why. I thought it was really cool, only I didn't bother to upload it until now. This map is geared more for defensive play, as the AI of course never really moves any troops, which is required for the defender to win. Some of you may be disappointed in the map size, but oh well. I like it. I recommend trying to beat this map on very hard. It's fun.

I beat this map defending on easy through very hard. I beat this map attacking on easy through normal (or at least that's what I remember).

Enjoy!

heh, an interesting idea yeah... You don't have much to do, or much time to do it in, but its somewhat fun. You run around looking for laddermen and kill them.

Balance: 4
I played it first on normal, and it was in fact very, very easy. A bit harder on very hard of course, but it could be better balance... normal isn't supposed to be so easy.

Creativity: 3
Not much at all really. I'm generous to give a 3. The only thing with the castle, is that its small... Very small.

Map Design: 4
eh... not much place to show of any great skills, but i'm generous here too, and give you a 4. I mean, its flat terrain but still added with some details.

Story/Instructions: 4
Never have anything to say here...

Additional Comments:
A very quick map, designed to be played on all levels, featuring... a tiny castle.
