I think this is better than my previous map. The story is in the 12th. century.
Saxon Doom part 1 - trapped
After William The Conqueror invaded Britan, the Saxons became prisoners in the island. They lived in fear for forty years. When the great lord died, the Saxons started preaper for a rebbelion. News came from the northern plains. The Vikings landed on the lands of scoths. The Saxons knew there is the time of escape. They wanted to leave the island. They stoled a ship in Hastings, where William killed King Harold. But they didn’t knew anything about navigation. They sailed to the west and after that to the south. In this way they get to the western part of Africa. They ran into a great storm. They dropped to a shore of an unknown land. They found an old settlement not far from the shore. They started to fight against the nature and the strange people of this land. They must be prepared to go deeper into this land and make a new strong kingdom.
You can find it a bit hard. Every year happen a lot of disasters, so you must be preaper for everything. And as well you haven't enough place to build a castle. You must protect your settlement any way you can. You have only a few years to prepare. Enjoy!
An average mission with stronger and weak sides.
The requests are numerous, you really have to do "everything" here. You cannot buy any weapons, so you have to decide between workshops and mercenary post. Time after time, five different bad events and an invasion will have every year. Fire is of course the most nasty obstacle to get along. A high amount of blessed people is the most difficult aim.
What I found challenging: the player has to act a lot inside the economy. re-set food rations and taxes, redistribute the workers.
And then, if everything is done, you cannot win. Winning time is set on 1150 instead of the game's starting date. (I finished in 1118).
Wether or how much the scenario was play tested? Other details also don't make the player happy. You can place a watchtower, but there are no stairs or a gate house to climb up the tower. Pitch rigs are available, but searching oil in the marsh is without success.
