As before, the maps based on floorplans of castles and ruins, the castle of this map t you will find Castle Hugstein, a large ruin, in France.
The way of scripting is meanwhile very developted. Therefore you will find here some necessary information.
You are always playing one of the charakters, in this case you will be the rat. The dialogues would be otherwise complete senseless and irritating.
Events are always connected , can enduring for a long time. For example: rabbits, wolves, bandits, fire. You should be prepared for these disasters, otherwise you will loose.
Sometimes an army of the rat is attacking you. But you are the rat??? ;-) Well, these are revolting peasants, religious fanatics, groups of plundering mercenaries, and so on. There are a quite range of possibilities.
If you fail in solving a oconomic mission, a large army will appear and attack you.
If you play a military mission, you will notice, that is nearly impossible for you to produce bows. I hate the easy way of producing simply hundreds of bowmen.
Your general task is managing a castle till the end. It could be a time between 15 and 45 years.In economic missions the invasionsarmies are small and less dangerous, but they can prevent you from reaching your goals. Some tactics, some people seems to be used to, will not work. The castles are often large, and it will ne hard, to care for food. Respect the times, where seemlingy nothing happens. The combination of events could be very devastating.
