Title: Die Morti!
Map Type: Invasion
Install to: stronghold crusader\maps folder.
Scenario Length: approx. 8 years
"The Crusades are over. Upon returning home you find that your evil half brother Morti has declared you dead and claimed your lands and castle for himself. Due to your diminished army a siege is not possible. Besides most of the troops within the castle are still loyal to you. Use stealth and guile to kill the evil Morti and reclaim your rightful possessions killing as few troops as possible. You are going to need them because Morti has some equally evil friends and they'll no doubt be seeking vengeance not long after his demise."
[This map was made using a "cede castle" map. You start with 20 assassins and 5 archers. Your first job is to get your castle back then the asaults begin.]
This and other Crusader/Stronghold maps and stuff available at:
This is a nice cede-scenario!
It has been great to play this map and what pretty much looked impossible in the beginning turned out to be very much manageable in the end! Well done.
I just loved when my little black guys climbed the walls to finish the job. Balance is the only (very little) problem of this scenario as there were plenty of troops available to defend the castle. The invasions (or other events) could have been a little more challenging.
It would have been nice to play a little bit longer as well and some more events could have been triggered to keep the game running as interesting like in the beginning. Creativity therefore 3-4.
The map design is fantastic. I loved the many little features added by the author, which are showing his unique expertise as a mapper! Everything is in it's place to form a perfect ensemble. Just GREEEAT!
The story is a warmup for the action but one personal question: Who is (was) poor Morti?
All in all a perfect little game which led to pure joy playing it.
Thank you, Kevtor, for your good effort and: please keep them coming!
