2nd Campaign - Mission 34 - The Snake's nest

Mission briefing:

Kriebstein Castle, May 1285. Erfurt was kept but heavy losses on both sides were the price. In planning to take a deadly stroke against Beauregard, you call for reinforcements and pursue the remnants of Beauregard's troops eastwards to his home castle, Kriebstein Castle, which is situated high on the cliffs over a serpentine river. You fail to catch up with the enemy and see them move into the castle only from a distance. Circumvent the castle and siege it. Use a new siege tool, the trebuchet, to raze the towers and gatehouses to the ground. The conflict with the Snake must come to an end here for good. Ensure that your archers and crossbowmen survive the siege unharmed, should Duke Truffe come to the Snake's aid. In that case, you must defend yourselves from the ruins as you would never survive the open conflict with Truffe in the fields.


I appreciate 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 nature's beauty in it.

Acknowledging the great work many authors have contributed to the Stronghold Community here, I created a set of 66 missions to conquer medieval Germany. The missions have been grouped into several campaigns and feature dozens of real-life maps, including dozens of original German castles, based on their original footprint/construction plan. The missions also include a number of fictional maps reflecting Germany's scenery.

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. However, like in real life, you will need to build your castles wisely. Build at least two walls, two gatehouses, and incorporate an outer ward to repel the enemy.

I am using Stronghold 1.41.

Haha thanks. I'm working on it and have already uploaded the next 4 or so maps. But there's usually a delay until they are visible online.

I do this as a hobby but it actually takes quite a bit of time. Therefore, I can't guarantee when the final 66th mission will be online.

Hi @Forum Admins
There seems to be a problem with uploading new maps as my new maps (missions 35-39) haven't been unlocked for a few weeks. Could someone look into it?
@Ericgolf, are you able to unlock them? Thanks :) :)

Update: Map in the German language added to the download file (for those that prefer to play in German).
