This was a very enjoyable and challenging map. Having the wolves jump out of nowhere was kinda tough though - my Lord kept getting attacked by them, talk about a surprise. I thought that the bandit attacks were spaced out enough and I liked that there were a varying number of bandits each time. I am going to try this map on more difficult settings too!

Behind the harmless title hides a full program of economic build-up and managing.
The choice of PYOK allows to try several opening situations. Because it took me some attempts to get my Lord survive the dangers of the early periods. As often with hostile animals, wood cutters and hunters help fighting them. But here, they will by far not be enough.
The title is misleading. Main target is a high amount of stored ale. As blessing is reuested, too, some more religious buildings commend themselves to achieve a higher religious score. Population grows, so inns will be needed, too.
Though the small landscape looks rather rudimentary, the mission plays exciting in the beginning and entertaining on very hard.
