The Siege of Cliston

Author File Description

File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Difficulty: Normal
Hi everyone! I have returned to making and submitting maps! Well, actually, the following map is one that I had made a long time ago. It was originally was part of the Rebellion series (which had to do with destroying the cathedral), but I edited it, and changed it into a siege. Your army is not huge, and you have no ranged units. So prepare for a reasonably difficult siege: at least, if you do not pay attention to all of your units at one point, you may suffer heavy casualties. Quick and swift tactics are the key here.


After a long and harsh journey, you and your army arrive at the fortress of Cliston. You stare in amazement at the monstrosity of the castle: 3 layers of walls, all well defended by great amounts of soldiers. You know that attacking this castle will not be easy, but you have no other choice: you must attack the castle, or your life will be forfeit. The king had sent you on this mission, after all. You draw your sword, hold it high in the air, and let loose a battle cry as you and your men charge for the castle. Arrows fly. Rocks crash. The siege of Cliston has begun.

Please rate and/or comment on this map, as I would like to know if you think that this map is either too hard or too easy. I hope that everyone who downloads this map enjoys it!

Shoot, I thought for sure that I had put it in there! Sorry about that, will update now with minimap. (It has been a while since I have updated anything, so sorry about that!)

EDIT: Updated with minimap.

AZ ViTrAzhAs Interesting castle shape. Not the traditional circle, with a bit of deformations. Three sections create a real challenge, I think.

Thanks for your comment. If it isn't too much of a challenge, please feel free to tell me, as I will be happy to update it in order to make it more of a challenge (if it isn't already).
AZ ViTrAzhAs I hope I'll find time. EURO 2008 is off and running, while I'm busy with my project, but I'll try it, hopefully :) Thanks for the map

Thanks for the review: I admit, it could have used a longer story. Glad you liked it: originally I had you use crossbowmen and archers in the assault, but that seemed to make it a bit too I took them out. Then I had swordsmen and Pikemen, but THEY made the siege too easy, so I took them out. In the end, you just end up with catapults and battering rams, knights, macemen and spearmen. (I was going to take the knights out, but after playtesting the map several times, I decided to keep them in). Glad you liked the map...the next map I upload will hopefully have a longer story than this one.
AZ ViTrAzhAs hey mate! Though I'm leaving in a few days, I'll surely find time to review this map.
