Hope you like it!!!!
on a day the king called you, saying that he had an very important mission for you.
you left everything in your peacefull land behind to help the king.
when you arive the king is already waiting for you.
he tells you what the mission is:
you must defend the countries trade routes, the most money is earned from them, and it is needed to rage war against your enemies.
you leave his castle with a handful of men.
you must ready the castle to defend the trade routes, good luck!
As I never know if the " Difficulty : Hard " means that the map is hard or the proper level of game is " Hard " , I made a first attempt at " Normal " .
1% losses ( some soldiers waiting near barrack straight burned by a fire ... )
Main fortifications full staffed whith 360 crossbowmen near midtime , had to build a remote block of 10 round towers to accomodate the following troops ( near 800 xbowmen at least invasion ...).
Map is good looking , and AI works properly ( nobody can avoid swordmen stuck near signpost when the nearest fortification is moated ! )
The main problem is the drough at the very beginning , all this dead trees preventing from an early correct setting of buildings .
Further attempt at VH level ...
Edit 0% losses at VH level
The first invasion was a hot moment...
Nota The last invasion was only by bowmen and crossbowmen , as the following units were above the 1500 sprites limit ( I had more or less 900 crossbowmen in towers at this time )

Huuummmm ... I don't know ...
( As I spend the last monthes playing at VH Level all the invasions available on this site , until I win them and as I am currently playing those of page 63 , may be I am more trained than the average player ... )
A way to have the map harder is to disable iron trading , as simply by closing the gate when workers of the mine are on work , you get a very great income , and you can afford buying enough xbows and armours to train xbowmen as quick as paesans come .
Another way is to disable trade of xbows or leather armours ...
Edit As there is not enough room for dairy farms at the beginning , best disable Xbows trade .
I noticed that pitch traps and boiling oil are available , but there is no pitch neither on the map nor in the market .
Fire and plague events are just boring , and have a very little effect on the army training , just 30 soldiers less ( 28 wells and 2 apothicaries ).
I apologize for my poor english ( I am french ) , don't be too harsh for mistakes !
