Take the Keep on the plateau and ally yourself with the two adjacent keeps. These keeps have European outposts that produce knights. The three keeps in the middle have Arab outposts that produce horse archers. The two keeps on the sides have Arab outposts that produce archers and slaves, or swordsmen and archers. The five keeps with Arab outposts should be allied against you.
Many battles during the Crusades were determined by the calvary. That is my reason for the predominate use of horsemen in this map.
The two spaces near the plateau are limited in space therefore I would recommend small keeps such as Richard and/or Snake others may work I am not going to guarantee it.
A very different Von Kamstra map must say. Can't wait to play this

Hi Von Kamstra-thanks for the great map.I chose king richard and the marshal as allies against the combined forces of the wazir,nizar and the caliph-Absolutely fantastic and intense gameplay.The map design is full of detail.Had a heck of a time defending my allies though,will choose the pig,and king philip next time .UPDATE- King philip got wiped out,even with heavy reinforcements,however the pig was a formidable ally.
Thanks for the awsome map
