Boartrow

Lord Boartrow was getting to be an old Lord, many battles with enemy Lords and the regular trials of running a Kingdom were taking their toll on him, so when he asked me to go to the NorthWest corner of the Kingdom and start a small settlement there I was a little concerned, he wants gold wood and bread but he forgets that area was cleared of all the wood years ago and the ground is not level or fertile, we can raise some cows but getting wheat and still feed the people will not be easy.

Well I gave it my best shot I tried to change Lord Boartrows mind almost ended up in the dungeon, getting the goods asked for by Lord Boartrow will be better than the next ten years in the dungeon. After traveling for several weeks we arrived at the keep, it was a new wooden keep and the land was cleared and as uneven as I remembered. How can I possibly make the goals and keep the peasants happy for ten years, the goods the Lord gave us are not near enough and the market is only good if we have some gold, we will have nothing to sell, hungry people do not like to pay taxes.

Lord Boartrow sent me a thank you note for the goods we will be sending and for taking on this easy job. To bad he can't remember how this area is filled with bears and wolves, the men that came here years ago managed to get the wood then but lost many peasants to the animals and bandits in the area, to this point we have had to deal with the bears and the wolves, but the bandits still operate in the area, we lost a few buildings to them, it wouldn't be so bad but we have very little wood, only a few years left before we need to send the goods back to Lord Boartrow, maybe we will get lucky and be able to return to the castle, lord Boartrow did say he had plans for me, I hope their good ones, if I fail here I know the plans will be far from good.

As the new manager of this unfriendly place it's up to you to figure out how to combine the meager goods you start with and the poor resources found in this area of the Kingdom, 10 years seems a bit hard, only 9 trees and room for 4 wheat farms, wolves and bears killing workers will not help, but the bandits will be sure to knock out what ever they can, maybe you will get lucky and the bandits will attack while your realing from the plague or while your castle is burning, but probably not.

Put your thinking caps on for this one, normal will push average players to restart maybe even on easy until you get it, but the powerplayers will push for victory in one try at hard and still maybe even get a win on very hard.

Good Luck, Enjoy!

Hello Sir_Vet,
Played on "normal", I achieved about 270 bread (300 needed), 1208 gold, but only 15 wood...
what trick do you apply to get 150 wood if the trees disappear due to tree fungus?

Hi Stratego, The puzzle of wood was one of my goals with this map, that the editor has strange troubles with trees caused me troubles making this map:-)

"Spoiler"

How I won the map, it's like "Zimba" where I gave you much more than you need. I place a minimal amount of buildings, 3 dairy 4 hunters 2 huts and waited for the trees to spawn new trees, then sent out 2 wood cutters and more as the trees grew until I had enough wood, then deleted buildings( don't delete the granaries) until I had enough wood for the win, you can place one wheat farm at the start then later mill it and make bread, you will have more than enough.
Extra rations and an Inn will give you more than enough gold and keep your peasants happy.

I hope that will help.

Sir_Vet
