So the most important thing to check here is the trigger. What trigger do you have that sets this event up?

Next, check out the markers- make sure both of the markers you specified actually exist on the map and are actually in the places you think they are. Then make sure the path you want Sir Grey to move to can actually be used and no parts are inaccessible.

If it's still not working, change the trigger condition to "Always" so when the game starts the event will trigger automatically. You can then start the game and move straight away to that event location and see if it's working. If it's your trigger that is causing this event, which is probably most likely IMO from experience, then this will show you what's going wrong.

If none of this has any impact, you should try to script a brand new event on the map with different markers and see if this one works.

Note though that it's also really useful when you're encountering problems with scripting to remove as much "clutter" as possible. When I come across issues like this, I'll often duplicate my map file and rename as "Map Whatever" A, B, C etc, edit the duplicated version and remove all other events on the map other than the one that's causing an issue so I know there's no conflict. It's also an easy way to try and solve a problem in a later mission to avoid playing the whole map through. Once you get a solution you just copy across the working event into your original map.

Have you tried as a blank map with no other events like I suggested?

Sorry if I was unclear I meant your current map but with all other events removed, i.e. so the move lord event is the only event on the map. That will tell you whether it's a problem with the map (i.e pathing) or whether it's an issue with the actual event.

Another thing you could try that would help identify whether it's a pathing issue is to setup a basic invasion to move from one invasion point to the other. In Stronghold 2 the invasion will arrive on the map and literally not move anywhere if it can't reach the "Move" invasion point. If it's blocked by Gatehouses, walls or other buildings then in 1.3.1 and 1.4 the game can also sometimes crash when the invasion arrives on the map, so that's another telltale sign if it that happens.

This will also give you reassurance whether or not the move Lord event is actually triggering, too.

For the purposes you need, a "Movement only" invasion would suffice.
