Notes

Once you find space to place your keep there are only a few possible spots for farms or other buildings left on this map. I started by putting in a few apple farms then placed lots of woodcutters to clear spaces for other farms/buildings. By placing the woodcutters where removing only a few trees gave room for a farm, then deleting them and building new ones once the land was cleared, I was able to increase my food stocks and grow hops and start producing ale for sale. I also sold a lot of wood and taxed highly when possible. Once I had enough money I started placing weapons workshops.

There were a few fires in this mission and later some attacks by wolves which meant I needed to create some archers.
