My maps are more simulations than stratetic fights. As simulations, they are as real as possible und represents always the lifetime of a ruler. You are this ruler, and your task will be to survive the time. These times will be sometimes very peacfully ( ;.)) may be, to peacefully), sometimes you will have nearly no chance. But which castle hat a chance, to survive the great war in Germany around 1618?
With every new generation, the apperance of the castle changes, because people always do exactly this. The landscapes changes too, because the existence of the castle and the settlements changes it. I recommend therefore, that you are looking for updates, because the maps could be very different. The events of earlier maps influences always the events of the new one.
You always get a completly developed large castle. Therefore happens nothing important in the first 5 years. The castles have the chance, to run fully, and you have the chance, to become acquainted with all functions. Best playable at 80%. Heavy freguented wooden portals slows sometime movements. Delete them, and it will be o.k.
You are part of the history of Lichtenstein, a castle with a living history. Although it really exists and the map based on it, the map is not a model of Lichtenstein. The History is complete fictional.
Castle Lichtenstein is build 1353 by the citizens of Winten to protect their trade routes on the mountain pass of Arodo. Three nobles are fightung over the control of the routes and they are not pleased about the fact, that the Lord of Lichtenstein will be the fourth. So made Kuno Lord of Freienstein,, Rodolf, Lord of Ebersbach and Tullio the great an alliance against Winten and their government. They gathered a mighty army and the first in the row against they campaign will be castle Lichtenstein. The army destroyed Lichtenstein, The alliance destroyed Winten too and began to fight against the others, to get the control over the trade-routes.
Tullio won the war and rebuilt Lichtenstein 1393, and submitted it to his follower Adalbert, the adminstrable. He began a harsh ruleship and had to fight against peasants, but also against duke of Eschenbach, Lord of the rebuild Winten, who tried to regain the control.
1393 – 1436 (43 years): Time of the great payback
You are Adalbert, the Adminstrable ( the rat) and people don’t like you. You have to handle wolves, revolting peasants, and there is the rebuilt Winten and the Lord of Eschenbach, who wants to take revenge, and he will do so ….
Hints: You have a strong, rebuilt and fortified castle, and you have money, and you will need both desperately. Although your trade connections are good, the traders will deliver not so much food, and the district can’t provide enough resources for such a large castle. You should build up your cheesemaking and the apple-gardens. There will be later on a row of invasions. Although one invasion alone isn’t very dangerous, the enemies will weaken your castle more and more and destroy your resources. But your enemies are relentless and come again and again. You will have to buy a lot of food, so be careful with your money.
