Saint Brigid's Falls: The Rat of the Glens is the second of a series of five linked scenarios following the history and growth of the hamlet of Saint Brigid's Falls. In this second chapter, you are called upon by the bishop to to prevent the scoundrel who names himself the Rat of the Glens from levying taxes on the pilgrims to Saint Brigid.
NOTE: Even though these games are labelled as Invasion maps, they concentrate at least as much, if not more on the Economic challenges.
- your troops are outside of the castle
- be sure to liberate Saint Brigid's first.
This mission is perfect. Loved every minute of it.

Burn baby burn.
Burn baby burn.
Burn that wee town down!
That pyromaniac Jayhawk was at it again with this one. First one needs to clear out Brigid's of the Rat's men occupying it, then meet the economic goals, then survive the trickle of men from the signposts, THEN lay seige to the small castle owned by The Rat.
After that, I think my poor men need a well deserved vacation.
This is all about figuring out what order to take care of things (though I suggest dispatching the enemy in your town first...that's just me though), and then figuring out how to actually DO it. One small caveat, that maybe I shouldn't give away. Just because that green bar for "time until final attack" has filled in completely, that doesn't mean that there will be no more attacks, as I quickly learned when a troop of men came swooping out from the signpost while I was off razing the small castle. Wells are again your friend, as is a strong economy, as one not only needs to create a military, but needs to have an economic foundation for all the objectives to complete.
Fun all around, and ranked just perfect on my patented "argh-factor" meter.

A well crafted map. The author to this took alot of time and effort into the map design aspect. The story is what makes this map, and from the looks of the other maps it will only get richer. If you play Invasion nmaps, this ranks up there in the "must play" catagory.

I found this mission to be a bit easier than the first part, mostly because of being able to make x-men. I still found it be a lot of fun, with numerous challenges. I thought that the castle could have been a bit more of a challenge to siege, but overall I enjoyed myself once again.
