Enter the Dragon - A Welsh Medieval Total War II: Kingdoms AAR Settings: (WORK IN PROGRESS) Faction - Difficulty (to play as) England - Easy Scotland - Easy Norway - Hard Wales - Hard Ireland - Moderate Situation: It is the year of our Lord 1258, and the British Isles are in turmoil! Henry III, the English King, is the dominant monarch, owning more lands than the Kings of Scotland, Wales, and Ireland combined. Asserting their dominance over the British Isles has forced the English to spread their forces rather thin, and has created great animosity with the other British Kingdoms. The time maybe right for the Scots, Welsh, and Irish to make a push into English lands to assure their own long-term survival, though they have good reasons not to overextend themselves. Haakon IV, King of Norway has become aware that the Scots are keen to reclaim the Islands just off the mainland and is sending more of his men to the British Isles. Should any of the other British Kingdoms leave their shores undefended, perhaps the Nords may find an oppurtunity to secure themselves on British soil again. A five-way struggle for control of Britannia is about to begin! Can any one of these kingdoms manage to do what no other has, and truly conquer all of the British Isles in uncontested rule? Objectives: As Wales I only star with three provinces. Two are Castles and one is a City. There are also three Forts in my control though only useful for the defense of my two Castles. Cardiff, a City, is my most immediate objective and only truly Welsh province not under my control. It will also cut down the avenue of attack to three points - both for the British to attack me and vice versa. Securing the British Forts on these avenues will greatly tip things in my favor. The three Castles/Cities in the area will be my next objectives, saying that the British do not wipe me out first. Units: A new feature in Kingdoms is that when you capture an enemy Castle/City, you are then able to produce the same units that the enemy was producing in that Castle/City. While my Spearmen and Archers are superior to their similar Units, the British possess strong Heavy Infantry (while i lack Heavy Infantry) so it will be important for me to capture a center where these units are produced so that i can add them to my ranks. Navy - I dont plan on moving by Sea anytime soon and wont need to until attacking Islands and Ireland.
