1st Campaign - Mission 11 - A new friend

Mission briefing:

Sigmaringen, June 1276. Treason! The monk near Lichtenstein deceived you and lured you into a trap. Worse still, the Snake has begun to surround your castle systematically and cut you off from your supplies. You must therefore depart and decide to move further westwards again, towards the Black Forest. The forest is under the reign of Duke De Puce who for his maliciousness is commonly called "The Rat". Part-way, you encounter a group of knights of the Prince of Sigmaringen. They are hastily riding to the almost completed castle of the Prince on a rocky plateau near the Danube River. The Snake, they say, was intending to prevent the completion of the castle by all means. The old truth applies: "I scratch your back, and you scratch my back." You will help the Prince to complete and defend his castle, and he will provide accommodation and teach you architecture and blacksmithing. Pacify this county and ensure a duly filled treasury.


I am fascinated by the depth of strategic thinking Stronghold requires from the player, and even more, the world editor, which allows you to design a map to the greatest level of detail and reflect all of nature's beauty in it.

Acknowledging the great work many authors have contributed to the Stronghold Community here, I created a set of missions to conquer medieval Germany. The missions have been grouped into several campaigns and feature many real-life maps, including many original German castles. The missions also include a number of fictional maps, a few of which relate to The Lord of the Rings (but which ones, will be left to you to guess).

The remaining missions will be uploaded in stages within the coming weeks once I have completed my test run.

At 'very hard' settings, most of my missions are hard but feasible.

Contact me if you have any questions.

I am using Stronghold 1.41.

blazinbullit Another fun map.

Wasn't hard for me, one try on very hard settings.

Again, I was abusing the market and in this case the fruit, I changed the position of the granary and put a lot of orchards, then selling those extra fruits, and making a lot of archers since I can buy wood and pump bow production, no problem with that helping height on my side also.

that little detail separates two different games: not being able to sell fruit would give an incredible twist to the difficulty of the map, maybe too much :P

When I was in a really good position I started collecting the resources for the mission :P, like years later with a ridiculous amount of archers, I never used neither spearmen nor pikemen, I didn't need Ale or bread either, I was using stone from the far away until I realized that next to the castle there was one available (again without taking a good look at the map lol) I think it is inevitable that some buildings will fall into disuse, especially if we have access to the market, It is a bit OP.

Btw, the horses that were there were very helpful in getting rid of the engineers and trebuchets, I took good care of them until the end, it was fun.

Great at always, keep going.
