- The included text file contains Chapter 1 of the campaign story.
- This campaign was designed with the veteran Stronghold player in mind. Some scenarios may be quite challenging.
Playability: I found this a very testing challenge, it annoyed me enough to make me determined to beat it after several restarts.
Balance: Perfect balance, I never felt this was impossible,
just bloody hard!
Creativity: What struck me most was the apparently random events, noted because I played this several times, at first this puzzled me but I can now see how the author may have achieved this. For example only once in several plays did I receive reinforcements, dont know what conditions I met but they sure helped.
Map Design: Fairly realistic map, bit sparse but suits the gameplay.
Story: Good read.
