Greetings fellow armchair warriors to my latest (and likely last, at least for a while) Stronghold invasion, entitled The Left Hand of Darkness.
If you haven't read the novel, you really should. I command it!
As for the map itself, it's self explanatory: much like my old map The Challenge, you have a limited time to withstand invasions and kill the enemy lord. The key difference is shifgrethor: the novel's term for prestige/honor hoarding. It governs every individual in the world (some more than others) and it will govern you, the player, as well.
Buy 25 ale for the Snake (the only way to make the eventually overwhelming invasions stop)
No enemy/no invasions
And that's it! Make sure to read the notes before you rate--there are also some hints if you need help. Have fun and play smart!
At a first glance the map seems more intense than''normal'', given the short space to build and limited initial resources. Certainly a great attention to detail and the eye-candy. But to rate detailed I have to play a little longer. Anyway great job;)
