In a mighty king is a mighty trust, the trust of his peoples. When a
king does not have that trust, he is not great king. And King Volpe did
not have the trust of his people. His laws were harsh and his taxes bled
the land dry. One day a noble dares to rebel gainst his tyranical rule.
That noble is you. You flee from his armys and travel to a wild untamed
land that was full of dangers. A warlord known as the Rat roams the area,
and rumor has it he is in league with the Wolf. You must be prepared for
a heavey assault shold these rumors appear to be true.
An elaborate design and elaborate plans.I like it.

Edit: started playing this one on Very hard & lost on and on. With each try, my castle survived +1 invasion. Each time, I had to learn bit by bit what was possible & needed to be arranged / evented and how to kill them quickly. (And to get some moments to breath and expand castle and village). The closely repeated invasions of the Rat (but with uncommon troops!) make up a most "terrible" challenge for quite a time.
Though we see a ruined old castle on the minimap, it's a PYOK start. Which I found urgently necessary in response to the difficulty level: which location shields the eco areas best?
Neat micro-managment by low game speed last for long periods. Counted the wood being delivered. Apropos, there is also an unconvenient repeated eco event I ran into some times. :p
The author has succeded in creating a very difficult map using a small but thoroughly considered script !!
I had to struggle to the limit, during the first quarter, and feel deeply satisfied.
PS. In the end, about 100 dairy farms were running.
Hovels and market fit into the ruins.
PPS. Save file offered to the author (e-mail in the profile.)

Got it ...
Beginning is hot and setting as much traps you can afford is a must before you can train enough Xbowmen . Then you can breath and build a proper castle , , when the great invasion of '55 came I had over 300 xbowmen in 5 towers to deal whith ( thick walls can help ) . After they are dead and burried , just fill the map whith dairy farms and enough wells to reach the 212 population.
Destroy the ruins , close the spot and set there your gardens , avoiding workers roaming the map ( this spot was also used for hovels ) .
Not the easiest map I played !

Niveau de jeu = very hard. :)
Playing is for entertainment and many maps already reveal their depth on Normal level.
Yet it's great to play alongside another power player here.
