Well the king has given u a capture Stronghold to look after while he is away waging other wars. Jealous Crusaders take offense and plan to siege Ur castle soon. Unfortunately you find that the king left no stone and little outer defenses, so you decide to use the massive slave force the king did leave to build trenches of wall out of stone and dirt to make some tactical defense. soo lets see how that go's....
PS. Some extra troops are coming from the king, buuut they might not be quick enough, so brace Ur self.
From the minimap, it looks a bit... boring... as the landscape is quite empty.
This scenario may have a promising concept, but you need to fill in some details instead of plain nothing - depending on what kind of landscape you think of, you can add smooth dunes and waves, steep and rocky cliffs, some grassland with trees and bushes, ...
Moreover, you have the choice to make either (for example) some groups of rocks - with vegetation in between - inside relatively even terrain or fill the whole space with them.
You can also reduce the available space by blocking off some areas with rocks and cliffs, or give the defenders natural height advantage (or disadvantage), you can create several paths for an ambush on the castle as well as wide, open grasslands, but you need at least anything instead of leaving most of the map blank.

Tactical ... retreat ! A short for-fun scenario. Less fun for some reinforcements arriving just after an invasion: ouch. But happy hunting for those who were given a good distance.
In February 1185, the racket will be over - without any victory event.
