Stronghold 2 - Keep On The Borderlands map
Ahead, up the winding road, atop a sheer-walled mount of stone, looms the great KEEP. Here, as one of civilization's strongholds between good lands and bad, adventurers base themselves and equip for forays against the wicked monsters who lurk in the woods.
You now move up a narrow, rocky track. A sheer wall of natural stone is on your left, the path falling away to a steep cliff on the right. There is a small widening ahead, where the main gate to the KEEP is. The blue-clad men-at-arms who guard the entrance shout at you to give names and state your business. All along the wall you see curious faces peering down at you - eager to welcome new champions of Law, but ready with crossbow and pole arm to give another sort of welcome to enemies.
But now scouts warn of a massive army coming to lay siege. Soldiers must be roused from their bunk to defend the KEEP. With God's will, wise tactics, and some luck, we may yet see this day through.
Notable soldiers (knights):
1. The Bailiff (Southeast tower)
2. Captain of the watch, (south-west tower)
3. Sergeant of the Guard (inner gatehouse)
4. Corporal of the guard (West Guard tower)
5. The Castellan (The Lord)
6. Heavy Cavalry (near the keep)
At long last, I have completed this map. Something I've wanted to do for years. It was very fun to make and playtest. I hope someone out there recognizes this keep and enjoys the nostalgia (and action!)
