Widespread Bloodshed -
By Fintrollx


This land in the middle east was an peaceful place for nature, trees to grow, rocks to rest, no one had set to this place to camp, i believe no one ever knew from this place until one day... all hell broke loose!
Crusaders have been traveling to fight against false believers and blasphemers! they come to this land in the evening seeing only a place for rest, tired of the long trip from their home land they make camp there, start sleeping, in the morning, one of the crusaders wake up early, he looks around when sun starts to shine from the mountains, he hears odd noise from the other side of a little lake, he sees something moving, he goes closer... he sees muslims praying for allah towards Mecca, they have also set a little camp, actually they discovered the place in the same night asthe crusaders! he runs fast to the camp wakes up everyone, terrifying of what the scout saw they start building defense, get food for themself, get more weapons, they know they can't go away now, the Sultan's forces would attack them from back, with mounted horsemen! Sultans forces also see the Crusaders, now it's even both knowing, they have to fight for this land.. NOW.. they know battle will be long, but hectic... The two lords start to prepare men for a bloodshed! "Show them no mercy!", Lionheart shouts and his brave crusaders start working!

Instructions and Authors Note's

You can choose between 1-2 opponents, i recommend to have 2 opponents to have the most hectic and get most fun from the battle, then it will be alot violent, as we like it :)
Get alot mines fast, i can tell you that, start fightning for them soon from the start. use your strategies wisely. This is also my first crusader map so i hope you like it, the actual place where to build is small but the mountains give nice eye-candy and place to make sneak attacks and ambushes to enemy. and honestly... give your enemies No Mercy!

Yeah, if someone wanna play multiplayer im ready (i have never played, just bought crusader alittle time ago)
von Schmidt Fintrollx, I could play with you. But I dont know if I can play with multiplayer, for some reason it's never worked before. And I'm not that good myself... I havent played a skirmish (or any map) for a while.
peter2008 Wow, a big size map with so little place to build.
The feeling is great being encircled by nature and enemies who can use the paths in the mountains to come in your back side.
Unfortunately the landscape sis fatal for AIs. The trees reach to the front door of the keep hindering the AIs in building their castle completely. The Wazir in the west could actually place the sceleton of his walls, but then almost no other buildings. Saladin whom I had given the wide plain of the south raised his economy but no single tile of wall.
Human players would be forced to act creatively. E.g, I took the northern part of, closed the entrances and succesively built outposts. Using every space I managed to let about 120 people work there.
The landscape looks exciting. The alternation of enclosure and openings, of wider areas and thin lines causes a dense athmosphere. Walking the fords in the middle of the lake is like walking on raw eggs.
East of the stream bushes are work into the rocks, that's lovely and vivid. Most parts of the rocks, however, are made up as pure blocks. In game this looks negatively. Which could add to the athmosphere mentioned but at least there's too much space of the map wasted.
As a last hint, the borders and transitions and the mineral resources should be finer modelled.
