Woody Wood

You might think that it’s all about wood but it is not. But there are many other challenges waiting for you.


1. Background:

The kingdom of Richard faced a lot of troubles after a dreadful flood. The kingdom’s economy begins to fall. The houses of peasants and some weak buildings suffered a lot after the flood. The enemy also got a chance to attack. So Richard also decided to fight. But his own people protested against him that he was paying attention on fighting more than the castle and its economy. The people said that our houses are ruined and they have nothing to eat, nowhere to live. One day Richard, in front of his keep, addressed his people to help the kingdom in these dark days. They should work with tolerance and patience. Richard said that he is about to import food from the other states. The military has no time to help you. Please, try to understand. I will soon grant gold to the people whose houses are ruined. I will also give you some basics goods such as wood to rebuild your houses. And those people, who have the resources, should help these needy people. However after a long and effective speech, he, the Richard at last succeeded to convince them. The people said that if they are provided by basic goods, they will rebuild their houses and will try to stand upon their feet without get help by military. They will also work with great efficiency. Next day, Richard imported a lot of food from other states. The problem of food was solved. The next challenge was to donate gold to people. Richard, from his all treasury and from other allies, donated the gold to all needy. Now the wood was remaining. But the flood killed all the trees near or around the castle. In this situation, Richard called out a meeting in which some honorable people of the castle were invited.

2. Over to you:

You (Sir William) were one of the honorable men of the Richard. In the meeting, it was decided that some workers should go outside the castle walls to gather wood from unaffected areas. But this suggestion was rejected in a second, as the camps of enemy were more than the trees. Now Richard suggested a plan. He decided to set up a secret mission for gathering wood. It was decided that you should go with some workers outside the walls. The mountainous area was the best place for setting up the camp. In this area the enemy will not be able to discover you. First you did not agree but the situation did not offer you to disagree. So you reluctantly agreed. Richard said that you should go this night that the enemy won’t spot you. Then he provided you with some goods and workers and said that you should finish this task very quickly. Moreover you should not gather much people here that the enemy will discover you by noise pollution. He also said you to gather some gold also. When you have finished, inform me and I will send an advance party for safe return. Do not worry about us. We will successfully survive these dark times and convince the enemy to retreat. With these words, he allowed you to left.
Next morning you and your workers reached the valley between the mountains. Now, it is time for work.


Win: Gold: 999

Win: Wood: 222

Lose: Sir William died

Lose: Defeat time: Sept 1118


It is no use to write hints here; these are inside the download file. However some of them are here:
a. Gather plenty of wood.
b. Don’t let Sir William get killed by lions.
c. You can use ale to:
• Increase your tax rates.
• Sell it.
• Keep the ration level to half or none.
d. Hunters will be less efficient.
e. Don’t exceed your population beyond 33 or enemy will burn your camp.
f. Build some wells.

Author’s Words:

Every resource is around you. Iron and antelopes are at your back of your keep. Trees are everywhere. Yet it is not as easy task. Hunters will be less efficient. Trees will get killed by more droughts. Iron is less in quantity. It is a hard challenge, I challenge you. Events are linked to the conditions. I’ve employed two hops farmers instead of one to increase hops production. You’ll have to save these two farmers from plague, fire and lions. If get killed, only one farmers then will come. You can’t employ two again or it will consider a cheat. The market can’t be rebuilt if destroyed by enemy spies by fire. You should finish these objectives 4 months earlier (or much earlier)than defeat time (Sept 1118).
The first map I map sending with a hope of being rated. I don’t know it would be 1 or 5 but I think it should be rated.

Ok, see ya.

Oh, very sorry, Captain Diablo!
I was very busy for two days in some religious ceremonies. Much thanks for the review. Can increase the balance rating to 4.5 if I update it?
Also will you please point out the defect in balancing?
Captain Diablo Well fayez, it's not so much a defect: it's just my opinion. Other people may find Woody Wood to be very easy, others impossible.

But a 4 is not a bad score. I loved your map!
Indeed, as Captain Diablo says: 4 = Excellent :)
return of Yasko Superb map, Fayez. Took me a few times to win it. Nice challenge and design :)

Thanks Yasko. You should also take a look at my above economic maps.
riderwinz I wish you would convert your 1.2 maps to 1.1
