Cornered! - The Conquest of Cyprus


Instructions: Place your keep on the top right peninsula of land at the ocean's edge. Place whatever computer opponents you like on the other keeps and ally them all against you. This map will test your abilities to siege, defend, and multi-task. Build efficiently and smartly with the limited room and resources you have. Use your terrain to your advantage. Try 4000 or 8000 gold computer advantage for a very hard game and remember, there's plenty of pitch ;)



The year is 1191. Sailing to the island of Cyprus, Richard the Lion Heart intends to rescue his captured Fiancé' from the clutches of the cruel Despot Isaac Komnenos. Anchoring in secret near the port of Limassol, he awaits his friend and ally, Guy of Lusignan to arrive with thousands of troops to assist with the siege of the port. To his dismay, Guy doesn't show. A storm blew his fleet off course, and the delay could be hours, days, weeks...who knows. With impatience typical of the hasty Lion Heart, he decides to immediately land, to set up his war camp, and then prepare for battle. He sets up camp on a high Peninsula north of the port. To his dismay he spots five war encampments below the peninsula. Komemnos somehow knew he was here. He is preparing to throw all his forces at King Richard. In the coming days this will be a bloody fight to the death. Will King Richard survive and go on to capture Cyprus?

Note: This is by no means historically accurate, although the names and dates are real. Richard the Lion Heart did indeed capture Cyprus with much help from allies. But what if help didn’t arrive? Now the conquest of Cyprus is in your hands….

Have fun

Thanks LOH and RalfungeN

This is a map I've worked on little-by-little over a long period of time, so it's impossible to say exactly how much time it took me. Altogether the drafting of the map, test runs, follow up adjustments and the researching/writing up of the story probably took more than 8 hours. Enjoy.
surajsubba A bit different from your other maps i must say.

It's good that you're back

surrajsubba! Great to see you again. I just played your second of the "Dark Water" series. Exemplary work, as always from the master of SHC skirmishes. I have some very detailed maps that will show up in the download sections in the next few days, I hope you'll check them out and enjoy them.

It's good to be back.
