File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Difficulty: Hard
Made with version: 1

The King looked at you: "Stand up young knight. Your cousin died recently from the black plague that exterminated the all population of his province. As he had no direct heir, you are the one I choose to run that province. Your cousin was an original person, and I have been told his castle has been built of an original manner... I want you to make enough weapons to prepare an attack against the two nasty lords running the near by provinces, known as Lord Snake and Lord Pig. Be careful, they may try to take the castle, knowing the population has been killed. These men will go with you, they will protect you. You shall now walk to the castle."


Gold : 2850
35 Metal armours
30 Swords
30 Maces
55 Leather armours
Cruelty : 3

Be wise in the use of space as the castle is designed to slow you down. You have plenty of space to develop your economy but you might happen to find the castle a bit small. You might also find it a bit big to defend. You must make the good choices to succeed.

You can not build granary, stockpile nor armoury. Market place is limited to stone - which you can only buy -, to pikes and pitch.

If the enemy gets into the castle, be prepared to loose half, or two third of your population.
The plagues that occure will rarely kill your workers, due to the way the castle is built, but il will affect your popularity.
I choosed the smallest stone keep available to limit the amount of military units on it. You can only put 48 of them. If the game slows down, its due to the fact of a too high amount of units on it. If so, take some off the roof.
This map is made to be played on very hard, althought it can be played at a lower level if you do not succeed...

A map that has so much to offer and a great start by one of the sites newer members Duc de Noisiel.

Playability -5- Like any ecovasion there is alot to do, this map was no different whether defending of producing goods there really wasn't a dull moment.

Balance -4- this was good too, the balance between events defending and producing was a great experience and one i really enjoyed. great work.

Creativity -5- Truylly a creative map, a great design of castle, it is one of the most interesting I've seen in a long time, I particularly like the raised area for the stockpile. Good Job! and the balance beteen all aspects of the map is a sure 5.

Map Designs -5- It is an area wich I feel is so neglected in map we download I often find it har to believe the lack of effort. Designers like Nat and my vey own design partner Arthus(just to name a few)create wondeful and believable terrains and your terrain is not far behind, absolutely beautiful I cant praise your efforts enough. Terrific!

Story/Instructions -4- The story and notes are good but I feel a bit more is needed, in fute and mor body and lengthen is and your sure to get a five.

Oveall a great map in many aspects, Duc my friend you just might be one of the rising stars in the Map Design world.
Terrific Job. :)

Hey there, first i want to say that this map was very good I enjoyed it very much and it had much to offer not like any other no sense map.

Playability -5- This part was really good, the player has to start up quickly and you never get boored as there is one thing or the other happening

Balance -4- The Balance was also impressive but from my part a little bit of improvement is required.

Creativity -5- The map was really good looking, the castle is one of a kind, the stockpile is like in the middle and is at the highest point possible and its great, you've even got deers moving around in the castle compound and the sometimes get near the stockpile.

Map Design -5- Map design was really one of a kind the textures are really very impressive, the castle is placed in a very unique position to suit the map.

Story / Instructions -4- The story was good too but it looked like it lacked something hey thats for me to know and you to find out.

And over all a Great map, the terrain shows the time and attention paid to it Good Work....
