As promised ,here are the final two maps of the micro-campaign The tales of Pierre Le Truffe'
Map one'Resistance is Feudal'
This contains a 'cede' stlye scenario,where you must retake your newly built castle-there are now two'unwanted tenants',but only one has the keys!
There are a few invasions to fend off and maybe a bit of rebuilding.Featuring my favourite seige engine-the mobile tower!
Map two'Full leather jacket'-derived from the film'Full metal jacket' this was originally entitled 'Full mettle jacket' but changed for obvious similarities and the fact it goes better.
This ( P.Y.O.K.)scenario is a 300x300 map and takes place in England just months after the Battle of Hastings.
Basically this is a prequel to the missions where you fight De Truffe junior in the SH1 campaign-and you meet a Saxon noble who looks very familiar to old 'one-eye'* (*- note this refers to the Snake and NOT the T-rex from a story in the comic 2000 AD from years ago and in a now hard to find graphic novel called 'Flesh'.
-- Resistance is Feudal: The Pig as entrepreneur.
At first, Lord Dredde shows us again, he's master of the cede event. The castle and its garisson looks fearsome. As always, question is what is the cede condition. Thanks for the siege tower. Be sure that the bad guys have ruined the economy and want the castle back.
Second part is eco style. Feels funny to put the surviving defenders aside. No bad events bother you, so the mission a bit flaw until the wepaons are all produced. I recommend happy and disrespectful rebuilding, a decent fear factor and high game speed.
-- Full leather jacket: Stronghold is supposed to be a castle builder. What if you don't have the time to build your village quietly? The huge amount of starting weapons should warn you: train soldiers! As several big and rocking invasions are to come soon.
There are some choices as for which workshops you prefer. Otherwise: sensitive restrictions in the food sector, a Travelling Fair when you don't need it, and Theft from the Granary when you really don't want it. :P
A little swamp on the map does not contain pitch. So the rig could have been disabled. Chop trees for your life instead to win on the harder levels.
