The story, file and image are inside, this is just a small easy map to mark the beginning of the story.
For anyone who played my LOTR maps I am still working on them but my stronghold 1 broke so i've continued to do it on crusader, sorry about anyone who doesn't have crusader nothing I can do. If I can pick up stronghold 1 I will make a campaign for both versions.
Playability/Balance: 3.5; 2.5 - so a 3
WOW! I have to tell you that you made the easiest missions I have ever played! Anyway I had a very good time playing this map. However it wasn't a great challange, the invasions were weak, I've lost only 4 spearmen.
I built a few woodutters' huts and apple farms, I've gathered the goods in less than 5 minutes.
Try adding smaller but more invasions and some events like apple blight or tree fungus, that would make it much harder and set the gold requierment higher(maybe to 300-500gold).
What to say...A simple gather a few woods scenario, not too bad to start a simple campaign, but it has to be more special and attractive to earn a higher score here.
Map Design: 2
Very bad looking and ugly landscape, I can create something like this in less than 10 minutes. At least try to spend a few hours on the design.
The map has a story, but it has too many grammar mistakes and it was written in MS word, which can check the text for mistakes.
Write your stories much longer and much more interesting, if you want to achieve higher score.
After a lot of reviews gotten I except people to learn something, but you make the same mistakes in all yur maps: You rush the design, spend a few minutes with scripting, and then you upload it to Stronghold Heaven. Please, playtest your maps or ask someone to do it.
