Hobnibitt War

Author File Description

Map Size: 300x300 (Medium)
Difficulty: Normal
Made with version: 1.1

Hobnibitt War - Hobnibitt War VH

Your King has just acquired a new county, Hobnibitt county over run by lions, some wood on the farm lands, iron in the hills and a rather angry Arabian Lord down the road who would like nothing better than to stop you from making any kind of stand here in Hobnibitt county!

You do have a few weapons to make a few troops with, a bit of something to help deal with the lions, and you do have enough wood to get a few wood cutters going, the food in the granary might last long enough for you to get more food coming in, if you manage to do those things then you might be able to make enough bows and spears to handle the steady invasions that will be coming, but the crops will have their own problems, trees will die off just when you think you have enough wood, lions seem to like the area and will be coming back for a visit as well.

If you manage to make it in Hobnibitt county then you might want to try and see if your good enough to try the very hard version, this version has more invasions and there will be more troops in the invasions, you have a little less to start with, getting enough wood will be a problem, food and gold is easy, making enough weapons and repelling the enemy invasions will be hard.

Restrictions are common here, only ale in the market, your troops are archers and spearmen, no walls or towers, you can't even put troops on the keep, wells only for the fires that will break out. Unrestricted lions and troops will bring balance to your stay!

I give you 2 maps, the normal version, still hard but not enough to call hard and the very hard version, this one will test your ability to hold a county in Crusader, you tell me if it deserves the title of very hard!

Enjoy your stay!

Good to see someone paying attention, I did post the peace version, but EaglePrince asked me to make it into a war scenario, Thanks EaglePrince!

So here is the war version, I give you 2 maps, a normal map and the very hard map, give them a try and tell me what you think.
EaglePrince I'm glad to see this new version of the map submitted.

I look forward to try it. :)

Thank YOU, Sir Vet. :)

riderwinz Another excellent map from Sir_Vet! I don't know how he keeps churning them out.

The harder version is a challenging map & I'd recommend turning the speed down low. I'd give it a 5 for playability.
You need to get your economy up & running quickly, as you have a lot to do.
I don't know how the market survives as he only deals in 1 item, of which I bought 5 early on.

Trees must be conserved as you have a lot of weapons to make... as much as you can, besides the required swords & armour. I still had some left at the end.
Don't overproduce food or acquire too much gold as you can't spend it once you've built all your buildings.

Your invasions of increasing size come from 3 directions, so troop placing is crucial & you have no walls or towers to help you.

If you want to make it more challenging, up the weapons required to 50 each... I did.

Hey riderwinz, thanks a lot, I just like making maps and have made so many it becomes easy, writing stories for them is hard.

The hard version is hard and you made it harder, you had more troops than I did and still had trees left over, I ended up deleting buildings to get the last wood I needed to win the map.

Having 3 sign posts makes the game more fun, enemy units coming from one sign post just doesn't get it done.

I did have the weapons at 50 each but decided to make it 40 so you only needed 2 armories, the only reason I put the weapons in is to make use of the iron, and to give a little more to do!

Thanks for playing!
EaglePrince I know it's been a while, but this map does deserve my feedback. :)

I've played it, and it was quite fun. I started by building a small town, and I was putting archers on top of the hills, while protecting the iron mines as well. I was also training some spearmen, so I could defend my industry if the enemy sent a larger invasions, or if he sent slaves on the city.

It was quite interesting to fight this scenario - even though we cannot build any walls. It was really fun to fight on those hill. :)

Thanks for coming back and telling me how you did with this map.

I used the hills for my troops as well, when an attack came I would move my troops to where they were coming in, I made spear men and used them to reinforce my archers.

The hills and no walls makes for a fun map to play, the hard version will have you thinking!

peter2008 So.

1) Another masterpiece by Sir_Vet. It can not be topped in its kind. If played according to the restrictions and possibilities, there will be no lazy second on the Very hard level.

2) A great setting both military and economy wise. The map is almost unique in two points. (Let's remember "Zimba" and "Zimba Two" by the same creator!)
a)It needed two losses to make me rethink the setup of economy (usually such as establishing the wheat and hops production chains). Other priorities required, Mylord.
Only when I supervised the wood cutters all the time, I could ensure a constant and sufficient income of planks.
b) The lack of any walls. The landscape offers some nice uphill locations for stationing troops there. Still, one has to move the army groups around when the invasions start to spread across the area.

3) So. It's a big thrill. A must download. People out there don't know what a Stronghold excitement they are missing.
Many thanks, Sir_Vet!
