Well, this is my first skirmish story, hope you all enjoy it. Like the description says, it's based on the skirmish mode of the stronghold crusader warchest.
The story takes place somewhere in the medieval era where 16 different Lords from different regions gather in the desert to take on the challenge to see who is able to conquer the great barren lands and sandy dunes.
This great event has taken place ever since the release of Stronghold Crusader Warchest, and now you being one of the relatives or the retired Marshall Sir Longarm, have chosen to take his position and take up the challenge of besting the other 15 lords in the desert skirmish.
CHAPTER 1: Entrance Examination
Having been defeated due to a certain mistake, Sir Longarm has decided to make an early retirement from the war business, hopefully being able to enjoy what's left of his life. You, being his nephew, have seen the opportunity to be able to partake in this conquest by taking your uncle's place. However, the king doubted you due to your lack of responsibility and wisdom. In an attempt to prove him wrong, you have taken up the challenge to get a taste of the desert by dealing with it's beasts first.
Having successfully defeated the lions, the king still has doubts about you, and decide to give you a short simulation on managing a town. However, you run into your very first enemy : Duc de Puce or also known as, The Rat.
In order to venture further into the desert you will need a good supply of provisions and gold pieces. Therefore, you stay a little longer to stockpile your resources, and at the same time endure more of the Rat's attacks.
Objectives: Acquire 200 Fruit, 100 Meat and 2000 Gold
Having set off into the desert, you'll now need to get past a fortified enemy encampment with the small amount of men you have at the moment.
Objective: Destroy all enemy troops
Difficulty : Hard
CHAPTER 5: This Barren Land
Now settling to build an encampment, things aren't as easy as it seems. You only have to rely on the amount of food you've collected to keep your men alive and to produce as much wheat as fast as possible, at the same time holding off an opposing force.
Objective: Acquire 200 Wheat
Well that's all in this zip file, more to come sooner.
