Set upon the forested coast of Normandy, the morning sun has arisen and the King of France welcomes the day.
He is visiting his peninsula stronghold, the Citadel Castle of Stars, known by many as the Château Des Étoiles. Here he seeks solace and refuge, for as rumors may tell, on the horizon lies a dark and ominous threat.
It is the King's belief, that after a long and debilitating campaign in Germany from which many losses have been sewn, he will be safe from the hordes of Germanic warlords that seek retribution for his previous aggressions.
Little does the King know that even now a Germanic army approaches, led by none other than the General Karkan "The Wolf" himself.
When word from woodland scouts reaches the King's ears, he spouts: "No matter! This stronghold has never been breached, and even Karkan cannot reach me here. Guard! Send for my elite crossbowmen and set them on the walls."
Personally, I've never been too fond of the Siege That! maps in that they're very limiting. It's incredibly difficult to create a challenging map on them.

Very easy to win ...
An impossible to win map needs ( at least ...) the opponent king beeing out of range of crossbow men set on a reachable area ...
Setting near all defence on 3 towers when player can afford 4 trebuchets is nearly suicid .

That is because it is not meant for Stronghold Crusader, but for the regular Stronghold (In ye olde Britain, instead of the holy land).
