Map No.2 in The Saviour of Léugìm Community Campaign.


Once again you are Gregory. You have just escaped from Mardonton (hometown) and are on the way to the Captial. You hear news of the enemy approaching along the same route. set up a fort and prepare to ambush them.

Background Information


(Best read with Kingdom map enlarged) Bealaigh Hill or Halfway Hill is a small mount with a rocky peak. Appropriately named as it lies halfway along the road from Mardonton to the Capitol. On the edge of the Larcoill Mountains, it has as a commanding outlook over the surrounding forest. Just below Bealaigh�s slopes, the Anoir Road from the East meets the Mardonton-Capitol Road. Many fatigued travellers on their way to the capitol stop at this junction for the night. Travellers have the option of spending the night at Cyrska or behind the sheltered crags of Bealaigh Hill.

Cyrska, a minute walled hamlet was originally built as a rest and trade point along the road and to command the fording point of the river. Over time it has become a haven for exiles and those who are too lazy to work or fight. Travellers who choose to rest here rarely experience rest. The locals are rowdy, drunk and loud. They are good folks at heart and they do somehow mange to look after themselves despite their lazy reputation.

Story


In this mission you will play again as Gregory, the main character in the campaign. Gregory has just escaped from his hometown of Mardonton after a bloody siege. He decides to travel to the Capital and rally some support on the way. He and his remaining army arrive at Cyrska and spend the night with the rowdy locals. Early next morning they set off on their way to the Capital, as they pass Bealaigh Hill a weary messenger approaches from the Eastern Road. The message being that Dayon is heading for the Capitol too, along the same road!

Gregory decides to ambush them and what better place to do so from than Bealaigh Hill. A small fort is established behind the rocky peak and the army get to work on gathering resources and building defences. He must hold his position and kill the enemy to weaken their assault on the Capitol. Weapons must also be made to equip any new recruits.

Author's Note


I volunteered to make this map as I enjoy creating beautiful landscapes the most. I had never really made a forested map so I enjoyed experimenting with different styles. There will be times when you will feel like ripping your hair out and more peaceful times, and then the seige! I hope you enjoy this map as much as Ericgolf did! And we hope you follow the whole campaign with us.

so how did you all find the map?
Lord William1234 I have started playing it, and I must say that it is an awesome map! It looks very realistic, and it is one of the most (so far) challenging maps that I've played! I must say that so far, this map is well balanced (the Bandits and wolves make your popularity plummit, but around the time that people start leaving the castle, a traveling fair arrives to balance things out). Keep up the excellent work!

Thanks for the kind words and feedback! I thought after 167 downloads, there would be something to say. Any problem so far or critical points?

Lord William1234 No problems so far that I have noticed. I will rate it as soon as I am able to beat it. :)
