This is my first attempt at making a completed map for Stronghold. I based it somewhat loosely around the conflicts fought between Baltic pagans and their Christian rivals in the 13th century. This map is a siege where you are given the chance to play as either the Crusaders or the pagans. It was constructed in the new HD version of Stronghold.
As much preparation as I had time for was made before attempting to create this map. Using online tutorials as a guide I tried to do little things like flattened wooden walls in order to make the map look nicer and give the archers a place to stand inside the fort, and a shrine next to the keep where the inhabitants pay respect to a deity.
I hope you enjoy this map, and please feel free to give feedback. I appreciate it, and I'm sure I can learn something about mapmaking.
