"And Tonight we celebrate!", King Longshanks said. We, the 501st Regiment, which by the way I am in command of, has defended one of the kingdom's most prized treasures, the Coast of Kalingor. Kalignor may just be a dot on the map, but it is a very important dot. Behind Kalingor, is mainland England. Kalingor overlooks the trade routes and sea routes which are very close to Kalingor. Kalingor is also a supply point for passing ships of the Empire. It is also a rich island, full of treasures, a small deposit of gold have been fount south of us right now! Also farming lands are close and abundant, trees are sprouting faster than we can cut them, and raw materials like stone and iron are in abundance thanks to the now dead volcano that once spilled raw materials down. We are currently feasting on meat, bread cheese, and ale. We are also feasting with our King, King Longshanks, and we are being blessed by the Pope as we speak! We are celebrating the victory against the Vikings that just tried to invade us from sea, but we have lit their ships on fire with our flaming arrows.Our towers have been nicknamed the Light houses, for lighting the Viking Long boats on fire. But, the King brings grave news, War has been recently declared on the French, and King Philip has sent a fleet to invade our shores. The King, cannot send any more supplies to you by ship because it is being directed to the war effort. The king has authorized you to mine, farm, and process it to defend your self accordingly. Before he left, he has left the last of his spare supplies, engineers, and a prayer. He also mentions the French fleet should arrive in 6 months(6 game years). You look on to the horizon as your King and the Pope leaves to fight.Your King has also left you with a request for supplies to help your country. Luckily some of your friends and family from the mainland who which are farmers, miners, and blacksmiths, has offered you supplies for money. You, your garrison of troops, and the 10 "Lighthouses" must fend off the French invasion force.
Hints and Tips:
Religion will be very needed a few years into the game.
If you match my selected 5 steps, bad things will happen.
Yes the castle is a square, it's a outpost what did you expect, the Disney castle?]
Trees won't grow on the highlands because well the seeds get eaten.
Of course I added braziers to the "Lighthouses" or they won't be able to light those Vikings ships on fire.
You can only build Lookout towers and Defense towers, because their the only Towers that the engineers know how to build
Sorry there are no ships, the sign post didn't allow me to build walls.
Difficulty:Somewhere between normal-impossible
Objectives to win: Turn your outpost into a city(100 population)
Defeat all enemies and win all invasions
Give your new people faith(100% religion)
Collect materials for the war effort(10,000 gold, 1000 bread, 500 wood planks, 100 swords and 100 metal armor)
Beware! At some point in the game, if you don't have my selected percentage of religion, a riot will appear. This will happen two times in the game. The second one is more sever consequences but harder to achieve.
This is my well 8th or 9th map. This is the most I've spent time on, about 4-5 hours. I have done about 3-4 hours of terraning, and if you played my maps, you know, that's a huge achievement. This is completely NOT historically accurate. But then again you may never know, their could have been a outpost on a island far from mainland, forced to farm and mine, and defend.
