Be aware this is my first map i actually took time to make and it may not be the greatest. Ais will work in most of the keep locations. For best results do not destroy the walls already placed. I realize that some of it looks un-natural but please keep in mind this IS my first map i took time to make.
This map is not located in the desert, so do not think you will have a food shortage.
"And you assure me this dam will hold all the water back? That IS alot of water after all."
"Yes we are the most skilled engineers in the land m'lord. You can rest assured and dry.Maby not completely dry heh heh heh.but not under 15 feet of water for sure."
"I'm still not amused. But i suppose i can trust you."
The lord of Ornaden walked back to his keep. he stopped and looked back to examine the dam some more. engineers were working around it and the one he was just recently talking to was heading back. The lord turned back without taking another look.
"MORE BEERSH! *hic* Theysh so kindly done-ate-it to ush for working so hard" A engineer said as he walked in with 2 and a half barrels of ale.
4 other lords, jealous of the land came to seige it. They made camp far from the Lord of Ornaden's keep and started a castle.
A day and a night later the dam had started to crack. The lord thought nothing of it and sent a few pikemen to fix it. Not knowing anything about dams, they simply covered the crack with rocks and mud and packed it in with the back of their pikes.
Another day later the crack had grown some more. The lord, more smarter this time, sent some engineers to deal with it. They brought a ox loaded with stone with them to repair the wall with. As they got to the top of the cliff the dam started to crumble. The engineers scrambled around but most of them were washed off the cliff by the raging waters.
The lord watched in fear as the waters rushed down the cliff. The lord screamed to the workers and peasents to return to their posts as the water rushed through the lands. Many were drowned and some made it back in time. Right now it may just be a series of rivers,but it will soon be a new ocean.
The lord of Ornaden sent messengers to the other lords that have made home to these lands. All the messengers carried a letter asking for a peace treaty.
YOU and ONLY you decide wether you get allys, or if you are rejected and forced to fight the ever growing waters and the jealous lords.
