I made these maps as a challenge as both scenarios start at a relaxed pace,giving you the player the chance to build up his/her army in time for the bigger invasions that arrive later.In the time between the invasions you have a few civil events to keep you busy.
I have added two maps for extreme which are edited versions of 'righteous indignation' and 'the caliph's revenge'.
Lord_Dredde gives us different versions of the same setting. Build up a castle in the centre, and defend the area against raiding parties.
"Dark Tuncdxer pt2(hard)" starts with a bad event. You can handle it by lowering game speed to 20.
