Turku Castle is the largest Castle in Finland.it was built in the 12- century. then after the finland was set to the Kingdom of Sweden the castle was made stronger. After second World war the castle was damaged and needed to be repair becouse of Soviet airstrikes against Finland. Nowdays the castle is used as an Medieval musem and sightseeing of Turku, it is also the most important sightseeing for Turku.
Also medieval partys have been made in the castle. I have also visited many times in the castle myself. Turku was a capital city of Finland before Helsinki.
It's a January, year 1381. Enemy troops have destroyed the villages around Turku castle and are ready to siege it, they have catapults and siege towers, they have more men, they have better weapons. But can the defenders, the Brave warrios of Finland protect it from such a massive attack. Your either Defend or Attack the castle, faith of the castle is in your hands. The battle will be bloody...
(This map is Response to the 'Duke of Yorks medieval castle challenge) Hope you like it!
I actually had to double check that you were the same Fintrollx that had spewed forth from the depths of the editor so many maps in such a quick time.
And you are!
This is an incredible achievement! Well done! :D

I enjoy seiges the most out of any other type of scenario and this one was a blast. Lots of unit types and enough action for me. Warrants a five in my book
First time I played it I had 12% losses on normal. This was due to huge amounts of troop movement on my part. I brought every archer too the front 4 towers and used my pikemen to rush out to stop the gate from breaking. The enemy didn't breach the first gate. On very hard the seige weapons didn't work for some reason resulting in a 0% losses for me. Another problem was the houses on each side of the map. This diverted enemy troops making it much easier to defend the main castle.
An impressive castle design with a nice array of towers and walls.Some nice ruins on the side as well.
Map Design: 4.5
Sets the stage for a massive castle defense in the middle of the valley. A nice bridge as well. Nothing really hinders the game play, but it is not good enough for a five.
Basic story and instructions
Great map keep on designing them

For some reason, I only liked defending, but a great castle made this map a true siege with no doubt.
