The map is one of level 4 (of 10) and hasn’t so much fortifications and ressourges. It is a siege map , but it is designed as an invasion file, to create a living countryside. Although it is the same castle as the one in the siege files, the map is differently scripted. You will be confronted with several waves of strong enemies, but you get some years to be prepared for it. There will be a block of events bevore, they could be very nasty, but also quite good.

Although it really exists and the map based on it, the map is not a model of Schlosseck. The construction is in parts complete fictional.
Castle Schlosseck, ruined castle which was built at place of an arrangement(enclosure) to be dated the 9th/10th century. It lies near Hardenburg, a part of town of Bad Dürkheim in Rhineland-Palatinate, about the Isenachtal on a projection of the Rahnfels.
About the castle any documentary documents are absent and its original name is unknown. The name Schlosseck is a postmedieval national-verbal tradition. In the early 13th century a highly medieval new building was established. In view of the territorial relations at that time the counts of Leiningen may be assumed as developers. Archaeological excavations proved that it probably still fell victim in the same century to a fire, but in the 14th century it was still inhabited.
