The Revenge -
By Fintrollx


Once upon a time there was an kingdom called Finewind, Finewind had large cities, trading routes to outer countries everything was nice, expect that the kingdom was near the sea, the ocean, pirates were pillagin and attacking to the near beach cities, so there were
build an fortress, large stronghold, a castle called Lightmond, after the castle was build, pirates couldn't harm the town's and cities of Finewind for good, their ships were destroyed by the castle of Lightmond, it was indestructible, strong walls, lot's of towers...Castle of Lightmond had an wise king called Philliph Deraktus, he had two sons which other one suposedly will been the next king, like an old radition was at the time... The two sons were Fargor a good
behaving kid, a calm person he knew from his birth how to act to another people, the other was... well the Philliph never liked him that much compared to Fargor, his name was Garek..Garek was an wildchild, sometimes badbehaving, all ways getting into trouble, sometimes he even stole his food from the
nearby bread sale, even though they had enough and good food in the castle for then... he was a waste, to Fargor, the two sons were never friends of each other they were always teasing each other, even had fights..they always ended on Philliph shouting at Garek even though it was sometimes Fargor the one who
started the the time they were 15years old, the boys...lived normally like rich people in the castle until suddendly just at the starting of the 12th century the
king, the father of Garek and Fargor pass away at the age of 76, it was a natural death and of courte 76 was alot of living age for that time, maybe it was becouse he was the king he could live healthy and have his food at the time he wanted, whatever so then was the time to read the king's testament, his will....
So the two boys were set to an room to read the paper, the testament of their father, they were next to each other and read at the same time the paper was in front of them..
The Testament said:"When i die, i ask your to bury me in smoke and set my ashes to the ocean, i want to have peace at the bottom of the sea...The boys readed fast both wanting to see who will have his crown..."So.. as the two sons of mine... Fargor will have my crown, my castle, my stronghold, the whole
castle at his command.Garek shall be banned out from Kingdom of Finewood, give him 250gold coins and food to his way out of here, no one want's see his kind in this land, hope there is no trouble to Fargor..."So there it ended the king's will was definetly unfair, an Punishment towards Garek..The the boys started immediatly arguing about it, but there was nothind to do, the testament were read
by the most highest court of Finewood and now it was set... Fargor were made the king, now he ordered Garek to be removed for ever "Leave now brother, i would have banned you anyways, hahahahah!! i don't even want to give you any gold to your trip, but that was MY dad's will so here they are... brother"Fargor handed Garek a bag of gold and food to him, Fargor quitly laughed while watching insulted
Garek's face... but he felt weard becouse he saw no tears on Garek's eyes kinda like he was full of anger, but still ready to leave withouth Garek turned from the gate, not even watching his brother to eyes he just walked and walked, until from the nearby hill he shouted as loud as he never did "I Shall have my revenge, after 40years we shall fight for the Kingdom of Finewood at this very same place and castle, i shall bring a large army
and execute you, drink your blood and watch your head in a silver platter, BROTHER! dont forget!"... then he turnd and walked behind the hill that was the last time Fargor saw him, or he thought so.....Fargor watched to the hill, still when his brother were gone from the sight, guards standing next to him,
you could see a bit of fear in Fargor's face, but then a guard said "Are you OK my king?"
Fargor answered "yeah sure i am", and laughed a bit and quitly then he walked smiling back to his

(At the year of 1340, the brothers then should have a War, you fellow stronghold player, shall play as
Garek and see how this all will end, the destiny of Finewood, and the castle of Lightmond)

Hints and Author's Notes

-This scenario is designed as playing the


since AI may be too stupid for this kind of castle it

works on defending but it should be too easy for moderate player.

I Hope you have a great time playing this map, it's not really easy map but i managed to beat this map (Tips on Zip File)
in normal, just find the right strategy!!

-Wings of Solitude - is about Garek preparing for the attack to Lightmond at Barbarian lands

Have fun & Good luck!!!

Okay, you really improved for a short period of time (not like me :D) and I though your work should be rewarded somehow... First of all, thank you for the great map, it was a pleasure for me to test it :) Here's a a little review.

Playability: 4.5
Really good. I didn't just waited for my army to kill the enemy with arrows, but there were moments where I had to use my lazy brain a bit :) I'm talking about the pitch ditches in the front and the pitch ditches inside the castle, which in fact burn the churches and prevented a huge fire, which burnt since the whole siege :) I also had to move the engineers, who were agressive and ready to spill the valuable melted lead into the water... there were some confused engineers inside, I used them to build trebuchets and kill the regrouping knights outside. Some bowmen were onto the ground so I needed to get'em tot he towers too. With one word - a map for fast thinking and good strategies. The only bad thing was that it was too easy... Yes, even for me :D I tried it again with increased difficulty, the result - they still couldn't touch the gate, leading to the keep's courtyard.

Balance: 3.5
The armies are not bad balanced, but it's obvious that with such huge defense force I would crush the tiny party, which approaches... They didn't had much ranged units, and I could just the god old trick, rushing the entrance of the keep with every melee unit I have... Far too easy, EVEN FOR ME :)

Creativity: 5
Great work here! The idea for a moat next to the sea, sounds weird, but somehow I liked it... I had a scout in the mountains, who watched the whole combat. I saw editor tricks too. Guess everything it's on the place it should be :)

Map Design: 5
Beautiful. Excellent design, with lots of details. The pitch between the plateaus looked like some muddy rivers :P there were stone paths, professionally designed castle, with lots of gardens. No need of more words, just good enough terrain for a 5 :)

Story/Instructions: 5
Nice, interesting story, we can see availability of HTML codes, such as italic font, bold font, resized letters and image hosting... Brief - this is how one average statistic page should look like :)

Additional Comments:
Keep it up, kid! :D
The Hitman No need to worry anymore, Fintrollx, I just submitted a review ;)

Thanks Hitman! nice review, i appreciate, i see the balance thing was different for me, i did alot playtesting and though this map was hard but not too hard, but i guess you are alot better as a player than me^^ that's why the balance could have been problem tho i didn't expect that :) but i appreciate nice but this map was ment for attacking only so i hope you were talking about attacking and not defeding but anyways, points 4.6! Respect :>

Ohh and not to mention i have new map coming. stay tuned!
