Date : 876 location county of Anjou France.
Type : cede map with ecogoal and time out. Can be played from easy to hard. At hard I advice to delete keep rear fortifications to gain extra space and enlarge the stockpile.
At any difficulty level, I advice to rely both on missile troops and melee troops.
Melee troops will be useful to wipe out bandit and crush more quickly invaders to enjoy more precious peace time.
brief story : after the Caroligian empire collapsed, Feudality rose, insecurity too, as well as provocate wars, and Viking raid.
Your overlord started to build a series of castle. Last one, builded from an old Roman Fortress, was just took by surprise by your neighbour the Duke of Britany.
Take it back and collect materials for the next fortress to build. Killing the ennemy captain would enough for the garrison surrender, or even it join you. To be clear it s a cede map.
Management is probably the hardest side of the map.
This map was design during december 2003 and january 2004.
