The Rat was raised as an only child in lands belonging to the de Puce family.
The duke showed his mother favour ensuring that she never paid taxes and always had enough to get by. One day a messenger came by and it was revealed that his father was the same Duc de Puce whom his mother had once worked for as a serving wench.
Due to an unfortunate accident the entire de Puce family had been lost at sea whilst returning from holiday leaving the Rat as next in line to inherit the title of Duke.
Lord Woolsack and Sir Longarm have sent you to an outpost that is strong, but not heavily guarded, to defend the only passage to their main stronghold; Romanesque castle of Piacenza, Italy. But Duc De Puce Doesn't care about the stronghold. He only wants to see your bloody and disintegrating head outside of his keep. He is now sending his ELite Force to do what ever it takes to completely fulfill his barbaric needs.
Though the outpost is strong, there is barely enough troop power to hold off against all of De Puce's men, so use your tactics wisely, and purchase extra troops from the supplies that Sir Longarm so kindly gave you.
This is my first stronghold map i have added, also the first invasion map. I hope you enjoy it and please comment and rate!!
