Second map in a series of 4. You start with small but comfortable settlement next to an oasis. If a little outpost has been cleared you can also mine iron. Make weapons to sell them at the market and hire troops. A second outpost is waiting.
If you don't win, have a look around ... and wait until January 1201 for victory to be triggered.
PS: the first 5 wood are spent for the granary. With no wood left, the first woodcutters' hut is free.
