3rd Campaign - Mission 39 - A stronghold in the countryside

Mission briefing:

Eltz Castle, May 1288. The Pig is in rage over his brother's death. He has sworn to pay you back. You require a well-fortified castle to defend yourselves against the Pig's main army. Eltz Castle appears suitable for this purpose. The castle is currently ruled by one of the Pig's governors and is situated well protected near a river. You cannot conquer this castle without major losses, however, last night your men poured large amounts of the pitch you collected in Cochem onto the area around the castle. Set the settlement on fire. Then turn against the castle and try to sustain as few casualties as possible. You must be prepared for an immediate counterattack of the Pig and, therefore, you need every man. Another problem is that you are short of cash and cannot afford a prolonged siege. Accumulate money once the castle is yours.


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.

Thanks for your interest. I haven't started one yet because I was still hoping the forum admins would revive this section of the forum and upload the other maps I had provided. I'll contact them once again to receive clarity. If it remains unsuccessful, I'll open a Discord channel.
