This was a fun map to complete with a variety of goals to keep the player on their toes. I think that there could have been some more bandit attacks in the beginning; by the time they began to arrive, I had my keep enclosed and my archers scared them away. I liked the map design and that fact that there was little iron available.

The map is completely identical with "Weapons from Ruins" in the Siege scenarios section.
The beginning felt like an invasion scenario. Wolves attack, from the map and by the wolves event. Protecting the Lord and getting some organized defences was my only concern. Under the shelter of some archers, the economy could be developped and the town expanded.
Landscape is nicely varied, reaching from huge beaches up to hill country.
Some events keep on happening, but without any forcing impact. Altogether, the main part plays well and straightforward. On very hard, one just needs half of the land's space.
