this is a 2 part scenario which follows events at 'dragons' lair' (see chapter 3).This episode.
you have sent a thousand troops to build and maintain a remote outpost at the northern most point of the kingdom,after the attacks by the 'savage horde' at Dragons' Lair'to discover who has been supplying them weapons.
mission one is a place your own keep,but choose carefully as you need a good defensive position. mission two is a 'cede' scenario where you siege and then take control of the keep.
full story is in the map file.
Whilst part 1 of this chapter is fairly good to handle and even winnable, the second part, so called "cede-scenario", is way too hard! I failed several times after having conquered the wooden castle. Unfortunately your economy will be utterly destroyed, as you are disabled to buy wood. Particularly the ultimate invasion boosted me away and I got overrun by those masses of pikemen and knights ... no chance to repel or eliminate them all! Any hints how to master this tricky thing?

Hi, Stratego yes i can help.
Here's what i did(1) immediately after the 'cede' event move all your remaining troops to the keep,
(2) sell everything then use the gold to buy weapons-raise tax/build pubs/hop and apple farms
(3) I placed farms and used the trick for more workers- select the building.pause,turn off then on again.
(4)build walls and platforms and train crossbowmen,macemen and pikemen.
Hope that helps
Just submitted chapter 5 'Pay the Devil' and
have added two save files one is for mission two of chapter four,the other is for mission 5.

Sorry, lord dredde, but I have to tell you, that your hints did not work ... I only could sell meat and buy 15 leather armours and crossbows, unfortunately not enough additional military assistance to withstand the final invasions. If only I'd be enabled to build up walls or to enclose the keep

Hello Stratego, sorry to hear you didn't succeed with the second mission, i did some checking and it appears i uploaded the wrong file,as i have several copies of each map and i labelled the wrong file-i have been very busy and see that chapter 5 isn't posted here yet.
Chapter 4- you can buy/sell weapons,sell iron/stone and nearly all foodstuff.
Also the invasions are easier to deal with as they are smaller,in short i uploaded the extreme version.
again my apologies to anyone who has struggled with this copy.
