Along the border regions of Westphalia and Saxony lie the ruins of St Mary’s Monastery. This once glorious complex was a thriving center of commerce and learning located at a strategic road crossing along the Lohne River. Sacked by pagans many years ago, it is now nothing more than a pile of rubble. His Majesty has dispatched you, Leopold of Carinthia (Purple), to this site to lay the foundations of a new city. The region is ripe with fertile soil and abundant game to support your budding population. Timber, stone and ore are plentiful in the nearby hills. Knowledge seeking monks will once again be drawn to chapels built from the beautiful white stone quarried here. With such good proximity to the crossroads and river, trade will flourish.
However, Henry, Duke of Saxony (Yellow), has recently been stripped of his possession of Westphalia. He has protested that St Mary’s Crossroads lie within the borders of Saxony. He is not at all pleased that construction of this project is going forward. Rumor has it that the he has allied himself with the King of Jutland and plans a revolt. You must be prepared to defend yourself in event this evil plan comes to fruition.
Hey Duke, are you the same Duke of York from Lords of the Realm 2 all those years back? If so plz drop me an email (its on my profile). Earl of White, Jeff Red Terror, Alex the Ok, and I sometimes have the odd game through Kali.net which lets us play through our routers. also works good with Stronghold.
