As one of the Snake’s nephews, the Snake has given you the command of a small hidden village in the forest a few years ago. Every year, you are supposed to deliver ale to one of the Snake’s counties. This year, your uncle is on a journey and far away from home. Unfortunaly, the Rat found your hidden village. Seeing that he has got not enough ale for this year and that the Snake is away, the Rat commanded some soldiers to loot your village, before your uncle returns from his journey and noticed what happend. Defend your base from the Rat’s men and deliver your ale to the Snake's county.
-Some messages deleted
-Different and a bit harder Invasions
This is my second map, i hope you will like it. This map isn't like the other economic maps. Your task is to produce just 75 ale and defend your base from small bands of enemys.
I hate impossible maps or economic maps where you have to play one hour and where every 30 a new event get on your nerves. So, this map isn't impossible like some other maps, but its quite difficult.
A good mixure of a invasion and economic map, like my other map before.
Good luck and have fun and dont forget the comments ;)
The map shows up in the invasion section.
Perhaps it should have been submitted there, because the attention of the player will soon be led to building up a small army and defend the village.
The landacspe is tasty and varied (mixed mountains, vivid shaping of the surface). Too plain though. Everythings works well. There are some restrictions and a comprehensive script with especially many messages. Some of them make up a funny story during the game. Some appear pointless. The Snake wants more ale, but the win condition does not change. The messages accompanying the victory sound a bit forced.
Overall, the mission is entertaining on the invasions part, quite straightforward on the eco side.

thanks for the detailed comment, peter2008. I m working on a new version for this map.
The Problem is that 80% are not reading the history and the messages should you remind that you are working for the Snkake (thats why you are yellow), and not against him.

The mission is ok, but not hard. With the village being hidden in a deep forest, my biggest fight was to get the wood out off the stockpile.
The complex way to get metal armour is exciting. The mission would benefit from some obstacles of this kind.
