Desperately after banned from the Kingdom of Finewind by his own brother and now the king Fargor, Garek marches forward with just a bag of food and 250 gold coins. He haven't walked not a very long way until few of his loyal friends from Lighmond run after him. "We ain't gona leave you brother, we were bored of that place anyways" one of them says. Garek smiles little bit and says "Yeah men, if you want to stay with me stay, but im leaving this place now". So they agree to journey with Garek they walk from Finewinds little towns stealing some wood blanks and stone blocks, they sleep in the streets, steal their food..after a week of traveling they are out of Finewind. They come to an empty area, surrounded by forrest, stone, iron, and a little nice lake.. they decide to start building their home, encouraged by the revenge for Fargor what he did.. Garek remembers the 40 years which after he will go to kill his brother.But when they set camp to the good area of camping, they didn't know the dangers beneath the area, they see wolf tracks in the area, and a mark of bear movement, they know they will have to hunt for food, have to fight for it. But what other dangers there will be in the unknown land?

Author's Notes



Thanks for Ericgolf for playtesting at hard difficulty and for Steve_1805 playtesting at normal.(I playtested the map on normal)I suggest everyone to read the full story in zip file and suggest to play the map with the difficulty setting closest to your skills:
Easy - Beginner
Normal - Moderate
Hard - Pro
I also hope you have as much as fun playing and beating the map as i had making it! :)


Instructions



This is place your own keep map sets place to 40 years before the Battle of Lightmond. Where will they set the start of this is up to you, you must help Garek to build an Castle and prepare soldiers and resources before the year 1330, becouse after that there is only 10 years to train men for the battle of Lightmond. After finishing the map i suggest to play my map "The Revenge". and finally get the story to an end, you fellow strongholder must win it, to finish the fight between the two brother, Garek and Fargor once and for all!



Have fun & Goodluck!

AZ ViTrAzhAs Challenging mission, there are a lot of objectives to accomplish, you're always busy thinking about every aspect. Sad I can't play your mission, but I've read the full story - it had some mistakes, nevertheless it was an interesting and thrilling narration.

Good job!

Thanks man, it really is a challenge, that's how we like the maps here in stronghold, at least in my opinion. PYOK scenarios it is important that the map is really challenge, the player needs to play it more than once to complete it, ex. Mined over matter by ericgolf which i played many times until figuring out the way to kill the snake :), and in the story i think there is few mistakes but main thing is that it is understanded and giving the map the feeling i want to give to player ;)
The Hitman How cool... New Fintrollx map, I hope it's not as hard as the last one :)

Well, Hitman it is 'hard' map but it is proven that it can be beaten on Hard difficulty.
evil_space_cows I also hope you have as much as playing and beating the map as i had making it?

does the word 'fun' slot in there somewhere?

Looks brilliant by the way - 37th download!

Thanks alot Sulis for your detailed and really good review. i appreciate, it's really cool to finally hear someones thoughts of my creation, especially from you Sulis, thanks :)

And i totally agree that the Pig attack is the first real hard time fight, gotta have strong walls and alot of Xbows, coz if they preach the walls and gain access to the keep, there's nothing to do then. i beated the pig by really strong walls and strategic crossbow defending. :)

peter2008 A wonderful battle map which led to some discussion in the forums about beating it on Very Hard:

Senseisan I also got it at VH , but I had to trick by dismissing 40 bowmen at the very end to reach the 160 pop' needed ( it is very difficult to feed a permanent population > 150 on this map ! ).
Obviously , most of the 120 inhabitants were firemen ( +- 75 ...)
A tip is that population is permanently checked , religion is not ( seems 4 times in a month , can be wrong ), so dismissing your guys at the very beginning of a month increase immediatly
population , don't decrease immediatly the % blessed .
Hint : you can't have too much xbowmen ...
