Hello kind Lords and Ladies, I invite you to tour The Grand Hilltop Castle! The builders, after observing the mindless hordes of would-be designers constructing naught but large unattractive walls and claiming them unbreakable castles, accepted that their motley structure would be sieged and ultimately destroyed. Thus they created a structure that was both defensible and sightly and have garrisoned it with the shamed would-be creators who sought to pose as strategists. So come one, come all, tour The Grand Hilltop Castle! Enjoy the various amenities such as STAIRS! GATE HOUSES! OIL POTS! A DRAWBRIDGE! KILLING PITS! and much more! The kind staff will be happy to facilitate all of your mindless slaughtering needs, just ask nicely --- with an arrow or blade. Hopefully this brief jaunt to our fine establishment will amuse and challenge you for five minutes or so. Have a nice day!
Nice ad, although I do tend to like castles that are, lets say, not as impenetrable?

Thank you evil_space_cows. Was it really impenetrable? If not, how did you beat it?
C'mon everyone else!? After 60+ dls someone can give me feedback!

Wow what an excellent Siege That! Map, this castle uses pitch superbly and it best of all it was really fun to play.
I actually lost the first time I played this castle which is rare for me. The second time I attacked with 60 macemen 100 x men and 10 siege guys. I got one siege tower to the wall without moat then sent a some of my macemen to kill the archers. After I got all of x-men on the towers and they did quite a bit of damage. I thought once most of the archers were dead I could easily charge in with my macemen they broke down the gate and ran into tons of pitch and killing pits they all got slaughtered. I had to bring my x-men onto one tower and they shot everybody including the lord.
What would of made it a lot harder is if you had added a moat to both walls and deleted the stairs as I could use towers to my advantage.
There wasnt much of a story but the way you used pitch was pretty creative in a way.

I wish they would get rid of this and maybe replace it with castle design or nothing.
You didnt really have a story you just described the castle.
Additional Comments:This was fun to play thanks for sharing it.
