Stunning to watch this castle grow. You have really assimilated the style of the Snake and created it anew. Great job.
I loved the single tiles of wall placed at the start and the curved walls at all. Funny the gap in the front wall (behind a moat) filled with a well. The initial steps are reasonable.
The great many workshops (about 30) are impressive again. Money-making and supply with weapons should be easier now. Wether it makes the AI stronger in attack, we should test carefully. The Snake acts like his colleagues, he trades away the surplus of weapons.
With just so many workshops, a negative fear factor was no good choice, imo. You make him weaker as he is anyway.
Two other important details. Despite the more than +20 population, there are no peasants left at the campfire. Training soldiers quickly becomes hard.
Usually, the Snake has a stock level of 10 items per good. And for some time I could observe him buying wood to keep this level. When under siege, but with the market still existing and ten thousands of gold cash, the stockpile was entirely empty. What may be the reason?? Perhaps an update for both reasons.
Last but not least, it was great fun to smash this castle. Many thanks.
