Reckless Hate - Part 5

Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Difficulty: Hard

It is the year 1343 and a war has been erupting for the last year and a half between a kingdom of rich and beautiful cities and a kingdom ruled under a cruel lord.

In 1341, just before the war started, the two lords came together in a friendly meeting to form an alliance between the two kingdoms. Before this event, they were not known to each other. They sent messages to one another and then they agreed they would meet not at a city, but at an oasis. The kind and brave lord suggested this. He didn’t not like the idea of a neutral lord being in his city. He had a bad feeling about it because the other lord was neither enemy nor ally.

They met under the cool shade of a tree next to a watering hole 10 miles from the closest town. Both lords had a small party of troops. The lords stood at least three meters apart, not once taking their eyes off each other until an elegant man stepped forward and announced the names of both the lords, ‘King Agather and King Edward are brought here to pledge allegiance to each other…’ and he droned on…

King Edward, the kind and brave. King Agather, the cruel and heartless. King Edward did not know how cruel the other was. A few moments past and the elegant man was still talking, then he handed King Agather a scroll of paper and a feathered pen to sign. He finished and handed it to the kind lord. King Edward took the scroll and realised the other lord was smiling like the devil. It was unusual but everything was going good so far so he continued to sign.

Suddenly, an assassin lunged forward at King Edward! There was no time to think! He was stabbed in the shoulder before a group of spearmen hurried to save their king. The assassin was slaughtered in an instant. The two groups of soldiers fought each other and one of the spearmen yelled, ‘Sir, get out of here now! We’ll hold them off!’

King Edward grasped at his shoulder as he ran back through the rocky desert and away from the small battle. King Agather was furious. The plan did not go as well as he thought it would. He was supposed to kill King Edward and claim the kingdom as his. The cruel lord now had one more enemy; but this enemy, was like no other. King Agather made the biggest mistake of his life.

Sub Story:

Reckless Hate - Part 5
Defending the religious city of Remings

The few attacking soldiers that are still alive kill their enemies with no mercy. Finally, they kill the lord and slowly take off his helmet. With a large stab wound to his stomach, the lord is not dead! And it is not King Agather! He coughs blood and cries, ‘Please, I was sent as a decoy,’ (cough) ‘I don’t want to die…’

One of the attacking soldiers kneels down and talks quietly to the suffering man. ‘I will ease your pain if you tell us where King Agather is.’
‘I was told,’ (cough) ‘not to tell you-’
‘Tell us and you will suffer no more.’

The decoy man coughs twice then speaks. ‘At the city of Iseknos. It is impossible to siege, so don’t try. But-but there was another. A prisoner-’
‘Is the prisoner alive? When do you last see this?’

But it was too late. The suffering man suffered no more. He went still, eyes wide and frozen. The soldiers were silent, now they knew exactly where their king was. At the city of Iseknos.

They traveled across the desert, but there determination was strong and they were not exhausted. One hundred soldiers remained and they knew they couldn’t siege a city with only one hundred men. They needed reinforcements and they knew exactly where to get them. The peaceful religious city, Remings, had quite a large army; they were also a very close ally to King Edward. The king of Remings said he would let his army be called upon to fight along side him at any time.

The army walks through a rocky mountain pass for a couple of hours until they come out of a large opening and immediately discover Remings on the other side of a flowing river. The image is spectacular. The structures at Remings are beautiful.


The lord that you have to protect is not King Edward. Have fun playing part 5.

Lord4life Exelent map. the only problem is I'm unable to beat it. Here's the problem, I defeat the invasion but I dont have enough troops after it to slay the troops that you have placed near the Sign Post.

P.S. A great Series can't wait for #6. also thanks for the review.

Thanks for the kind words. I really do hope everyone has enjoyed this map.

I am having trouble with part 6, as I am caught up with the design of the outer walls of the city. I am going for a different approach to the designs. Hard to explain.
