When designing this map, I first envisioned a map focused mainly on the combat aspect of Stronghold, not so much on the economic aspect. As a result, it will be fairly easy to set up your economy, but once the enemies start coming, they will come in huge numbers and frequently.
At first, I only had one signpost, but after a few playtests, I found that having enemies attack you from both sides is much more challenging.
Also, this map doesn't have much of a story at all. This is due mainly to the fact that this is a stand alone mission. Besides, who needs a storyline when you have great gameplay?
Ok, so, bon apetit or whatever you's mapmakers say.
