peter2008 Hi Lord De gravile,
your second map ... well, well, surely not a beginner's one.

Edit2: How could I forget it, this map is a remake of the 5th mission of the Stronghold 1 economic campaign, "A Castle in the Marsh" (which can be won well on very hard). Down to the last detail as for landscape and castle, there are three main differences. The market is disabled now -where to get with all the wood? The bad events last far longer. And the win condition is far higher.

Started twice and failed, I started a third time and lost with too little gold though the population had achieved 122 in the end and I used all tricks I know. One has to use the art of math here which hints to very good playtesting.
You made a good job which is great fun. Write a story about the scenario - this place first inhospitable, then a small paradise - and you will probably get a good rating.

Edit1: TwoDie: 200 pop! Where do you place all the hovels? Made new attempts. 162 pop / 12.500 gold. Tried twice with 212 pop and got 6.000, then 9.500 gold.
Returned to 186 / 12.500. May the golden way lie at around 178 population?
The anti-food events are scripted so well coming in time to devastate hops and wheat. Once I had constantly 97% ale coverage, damn lacking 3%. :)
But a clever aspects is to discover: Think this is the craziest REBUILDING castle ever !!

lord dredde Hi Lord De Gravile,interesting map you've got here,(i've downloaded it and had a peek at the map),pity you havent a minimap for it here as you would get more downloads.Just remembered now-this is based on the stronghold1 map of the same name,good to see someone has made one for crusader.A very hard map,as there is little space to build and get a decent economy and raise gold,but it can be done.

Hi Lord De gravile,

it's very hard i have try 25X and the result is none, i forgot to have 200 people and 15000 gold. sorry

Stratego I doubt if it's really possible to get 15.000 gold in this scenario ... 5.000 is more realistic in my opinion.
