3rd Campaign - Mission 44 - Between a rock and a hard place

Mission briefing:

Braunfels Castle, October 1289. The ambush in the Taunus mountains destroyed your current plans as your main army was strongly decimated. Together with the survivors, you flee a few day's marches northwards into scarcely populated woodlands. The ruins of Braunfels Castle, positioned on a hill, appear to be a suitable refuge to rebuild your army. You are aware that the Wolf has decided to intervene. What's worse is that he will likely send his new swordsmen battalion against you. You don't have much time. Furthermore, your provinces urgently need weaponry supplies. You will need to look after that, too.


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.

Thank you! Sorry I haven't uploaded further maps yet but I'm still planning to do so when I have the time.
JRodo Great map, as expected, but I failed the second attack. I am sure that more experienced players had good fun. I only wish that the easy level was available :(
It appears that mission 44 is the ultimate post on this site. I do hope that this is not our last contact, since, as a designer, you have earned massive respect from us all.
If you migrated to Discord or anywhere else, kindly do give me a nudge on mail, Facebook or message 356-79618099.
Should you consider arranging this trilogy into a kind of SH-HD re-issue, I have some ideas which you may consider. This includes JPG sketches and other stuff that enhances continuity. Obviously, I may suggest considering ‘children of a lesser god’. We also deserve to enjoy your work :)
Till the next, thank you, and may peace be with us all.

Thanks, mate! Much appreciated. I'm still here, but unfortunately, didn't have the time recently to continue testing and uploading my maps. But I still want to do that someday!
