peter2008 Like in your last map, "The Outlaws", the start is great: one may become overwhelmed by the invasions of the Rat (who now also trains knights). Also, it's a good idea to trade away bread for iron (so one may not drown in gold).

Once you have found the key to deal with the invaders - wood and more wood -, the map becomes quiet. The invasions repeat. No events.

I thought, the blessing request would force me to leave the walls and protect some stone quarries out there. But there was no need for it even on very hard. Never saw the sea.

I`ve updated the file, there are more events now, it is a bit harder
Senseisan Both maps ( these and " Outlaws " ) are a fine job , playable even in VH and not to boring as economic winning criteria are not leading to stockpile mountains of goods using half of the map for storage .
Thanks for sharing them !

Thanks!!
peter2008 With few events added, the mission feels "rounder": attention is turned towards the village and popularity, too.

And the quality of the defences will be more thoroughly tested in between.

The first part is best drama. A screenshot adumbrates the drama.

Playability: 4.5
I enjoyed playing the map, the economic objectives bring more challenges into the mission while youre tackling off the rats men who as peter2008 sayed now has knights.
But there are too many invasions as well as recovering from all of the events.

Balance: 3.5
Again the balance was ok, training archers can hold them at bay but so many invasions can intervene with the eco objectives.

Creativity: 4
Good creativity i liked the ruins north of the castle but you should have put some real ruins. Damaged walls on your castle means you need to build quarries which can put pressure if low on
wood.

Map Design: 4.5
Good map design lots of trees, good source of wood. Very foresty place but still lots of space to build which can be a good, good thing.

Story/Instructions: 2
Not much of a story and very poor instructions.
Make your stories longer and put more detail into them.
Additional Comments:
Over all good map enjoyed playing it but remember to make some better stories or some more detailed instructions.
