Thank you for checking out my castle design for Stronghold Crusader!
The Abbot is by no means a powerful opponent, even though, as far as AI enemies go, he maintains a great economy.
He does, however, benefit from a +5 fear factor bonus in this castle... despite the fact that his fear levels are usually at least -2 in his original castle designs. As a result of this bonus his monks will be a little tougher, but they still fall flat on their faces when confronted with only moderate arrow-fire.
The truth of the matter is that no matter how well laid out his castle is, and no matter how many archers he recruits, (and he will recruit plenty), The Abbot simply refuses to properly garrison his towers.
