You have seen war come and go in this land, battles fought in distant lands against Lords and with allied Lords, as you have fought for the greater good the tribes have fought for their own greater good. Your castle has suffered and the villages you have depended upon for trade have been taken by the Tribes.
In the distant lands war has come to a slow grind now is the time to send some troops back to your castle to rebuild and regain the villages, pushing the Tribes out once and for all. The tribes know of your return and will not give up easily, they will wait until you reach your castle before returning to retake your villages from you, then they will come and try to remove you from your castle for good.
You won't need to rush there are no time limits, but you will need most of the troops and reinforcements you will get along the way, the hills are lined with archers and the siege equipment will be handy, the burning carts if placed in the right spot can burn a hole mountain top, I'm sure you will figure it all out. So get some troops to your castle, be ready to defend it and when you feel ready send your troops back out to retake your villages again so you can fill the request of 60 iron for the win.

This map and many more have been posted at "HeavenGames.com" under the name"Sir_Vet"
I will be posting more of these maps here as well as my Crusader maps.
ps: there is a spoiler in the zip if you need it.
ps: I have played this map many times and it all works the way it should, but there are a few spots where troops can stackup and go nowhere, they will be enemy and neutral, sorry I could not find out why. The game still runs normal though. Just save before attacking the stacked groups.
