We have determined the point of entry of the pigs invasion force in our land.
It is actually via a small wooden bridge which is unfortunately enough the only bridge unguarded by a garrison of our forces.
A group of engineers have already been dispatched to that location and have begun the construction of a small outpost.
Although the construction have been hampered by small raiding parties of the pigs, the outpost have successfully been constructed.
Your orders are to fortify the outpost by a much troops and traps as possible.
Do not presume that you have enough time to fortify thoroughly.
This is because our scouts have seen a second large invasion force marching towards the bridge.
Furthermore the king has given permission to use our secret weapon; boiling oil.
Use this wisely to fend off the attackers.
Also a group of engineers have reassembled an old trebuchet that could be handy in tossing cows and stones on the enemy.
If you have successfully defeated the pig’s forces then by the king’s orders build an inn to reward the troops with ale.
Thank you for your review and indeed i wasn't expecting a review on the first day so that was a good surprise.

Nice idea, the game being hard to loose though.
The "bridge" is rather a broad-way. This makes it difficult to find a layout for wood traps there. So the fight amounts to the clash at the weak gate. "Gate guardians". A somehow complex construction. Not easy to place the towers around for the oil-bearing engineers and more shields + archers. (Good the restriction of pitch traps.) If this line holds, the game is won.
Having survived the second, big invasion you have all time of the world to fulfill the requests.
