You are a young and bold prince, who have just finished learning the basics of managing a castle. So you tell your father, "I want my first castle to be a challange, so none can say that I had an easy task."
Your father gave you a plot of land near the border of the enemy. Many battles had been fought on this land, with castles being torn down by constant raids. Therefore, as your father said to you, "it is No man's land". The castles who managed to survive here economically were destroyed by raiders, who thought that this piece of land was so poor in resources, no one else should be allowed to live here.
As you headed to your new castle, you had a skirmish with some of the raiders. Your troops easily defeated them, and they fled. However, some troops of yours got lost in the process. Also, your scouts report that the enemy knows you are there, and will attempt to stop you from making a prospers castle. You will have to utilize every defensive tactic if you are going to survive this.
Will you be be the first to create a succesful castle in the barren lands? Or will the stones of your castle join the ancient ruins...
