January 1078:its a time of war in the arabian lands.There was a good strategic important fort which was well fortified and good playced on a mountine.It was a lookout fort for the arab country to hold and warn people from the invaders.After the atacks of the lionhearts army the castle was conqured.Saladin has paid you to take down and bring back the fort to arab forces but it would be hard becase saladin had not many troops and time to bring back the castle.War is closeing for overtaking jerusalem and he must defend it.
Saladin:''I give you some solders to bring back the fort becase it would be easier to strike back the lionhearts big army.The fort has lose many food suplies and it easier to conqer.I will pay you a lot of gold when you bring back the strategic important castle.''
This map was great fun. I enjoyed it. I got my army through the first wall, then the gatehouse then died. lol. I got it on the second try. The map design was good but needed a little work in some areas. Such as the elevation.
The castle was designed perfectly. I liked how it was constructed on top of a mountain. The balance was absolutely perfect. I had just a enough troops to kill the enemy lord. When he died, I had 2 soldiers left. lol
The story was what hurt the score. Your story-writing was not very well. But the concept was good.

An old enemy
A good siege map. The landscape has a somewhat different look.The dunes and elevation do need some gentler brush strokes but i suppose that is the whole reason why it looks unique; especially the castle structure. The raised land in the front of the castle reminded me of a map "Bagdad,Iraq" by lollard97367. There's a handful, a variety of units given to you. And the siege equipments.I found it a bit easy picking off archers and clearing the walls before storming in the castle. Using a combination of slingers and ballistae proved effective.
