Your quest against the Pig was going well: while the king was being rescued you succeded to keep the Pig busy. Now, retreating from the previous stronghold, you are forced to take refuge on a small castle near the sea. The Pig is after you and don't have the time for a retreat. Now the matter is simple: use all you can think to survive because the Pig wants revenge and the Wolf is coming. The Pig is likely to attack with lots of soldiers, but beware of the wolf: scouts say that he is sending a knights and siege weapons. Also, in this place there is nor iron nor stone, and the market can't be replaced. (stone walls and portals as well).
1- use knights against siege weapons
2- fire, fire and fire. Burn them!
3- 900 gold at start is meant to buy some goods. Choose carefully, because earn money is harder than you think
Comment and review please! Not only they please me, but also help me to understand how to make better maps.
Wow this is a big improvment from your last map. Since you want advise, I'll give you some constructive criticism :)
(You probably read the first two from me on one of your previous maps.)
1) I like your castles. They are pretty fun to play with and have a lot of eyecandy. However, if you want a realistic looking castle, you should use less 90 degree angles. The castle will look much more realistic.
2) You had too much empty land around your castle. I had too much room to build farms and other buildings, so the granary thefts had no effect on me. The vast amount of land made it relatively easy. Try to place more rocks or maybe add some height to the land.
3) Your first few invasions were very easy to beat. I used the starting archers to easily take them out. Later, the invasions became a bit harder, but by then I had a large supply of crossbowmen and macemen to take them out.
If I had to rate this, it would be like this:

Thanks Knight of Russia! :)
I will try to remember your advises! You see, my main problem is that i find very hard making a good landscape. Slowly i'm trying to make more realistic enviroiment...all i need is practise.
Next maps will be better i hope, will spend more time in the making and...no more castle with only 90 degrees angles :)
In the mean time, while i slowly improve...you all will have to frown and point my errors :)
Constructive criticism is always well accepted!

You said: "You see, my main problem is that i find very hard making a good landscape. Slowly i'm trying to make more realistic enviroiment...all i need is practise."
If landscape is your mapmaking issue that needs improvement, besides practice I recommend downloading some scenarios rated with 5s on the Map Desig. Study them and you'll get the idea of a realistic terrain.
