Exiled, War Scenario

Recommended Posts

While my current Crusader II project is on hold, I've decided to begin a new one for SH2.

 

 

Story

You have been exiled from your home land by the new corrupt king and queen. The two have heard about your past heroic actions and feel that you are a threat to their popularity. You were taken from your home at night by the kings men and left in a forest to rot. Sir William had heard of the happenings from his spies. He sent a small group of men to search for you. The men found you, just about to be torn apart by wolves. They helped you back up on to your feet and informed you of the situation. One of the swordsmen handed you a scroll, written by Sir William. It read:

 

"My dear friend. I only pray that you live on. News of the royal treachery saddens me greatly. You and I both know how the past King would have honoured your efforts, not criminalise them. If you have been found where I suspected, then there is hope. There is a small castle nearby, it is currently under the influence of Lord Black Briar, a commander who has gained his status by birth. He serves the new King in return for land and gold.

 

I am sure you know of my intentions. Take my men and head forth to his castle. Take control of the stronghold and maintain it. He is a cruel lord and so the people will welcome a new ruler, so long as he respects them. Also, these people know not of your previous quests, hence, your identity will be safe. I shall send more reinforcements before you begin the siege.

 

Alongside you right now, is one of my best men, Sir Jackdaw. He can offer tactical advice and support if needed.

 

I wish you the best of luck, be sure to send word once you have accomplished the task. I have faith in you friend. Remember, it takes more than troops to win a war.

 

 

 

 

There will be more than one mission but for the introduction, William speaks only of one. If you would like to find out more, then be sure to download it once it's finished :D

 

Be sure to let me know what you think of the idea :)

Maybe you'd be interested in helping me replace the actual game campaign with a custom one, this mission being among them?

 

It sounds like another great mission. I already have one mission but this sounds like it could be a great addition.

 

I can't say when though, I've been working on my mission for three years! :D

That sounds like an excellent idea. If I'm right. You want to create a lot of war/peace scenarios that all follow a storyline? :)

Yes. :)

 

And then I'll replace it with the official game campaign, and upload it here so people can download it. PM me for more information on what I've done so far if you want, I've written a whole introduction with tips and things on how to complete the mission best, briefings .etc (of those which I've completed)

Sounds great.

 

Just out of curiosity: can you take over a castle from an AI opponent in SH2?

Your story sounds like this is exactly what you want to do in this mission. Is that technically possible with the SH2 enginge?

It would be so cool if yes.

Yes, I'm pretty certain it is. I can't remember the exact event, but it's something like Convert estate to village which will allow you to take control of an AI's estate.

      I recently got a new computer, and I decided to give Stronghold 2 another go. I didn't play it a lot originally because I played the original and Crusader first, and I didn't really like the added complexity of Stronghold 2 at the time. Once you get into it though, it's fun in its own right. I've been playing through the war campaign, and I've gotten pretty far. Today I finished Chapter 11 (Treachery).   This level is really difficult at the beginning. I tried keeping the original layout at firs

    • Stronghold 2 Scenario Editor Question

      In the Stronghold 2 (and Stronghold Legends) scenario editor, is there another set of keys one can use when setting things like the start date without using the mouse wheel? (I honestly see no reason why there isn't since some people play on laptops and not all computer mice have wheels, but there is no indicator there is an alternative to using the mouse wheel in the documentation.)

    • Is there a New war Trail in the works for this?

      Hi guys, ?   ?? I found this Mod by Teutonen Ritter A few days ago and Its excellent. I was just curious if anyone knows how to add a? new war trail to the mod? I looked at the files and tried to figure how to get it back in but I came up short. I think it would be cool to make new missions for the trail that fit the mod. I asked the same question over at stronghold heaven and "Eagleprince" said I should ask over here.
