So, what did you all do when you went up against the Snake's castle? I fortified my farmland to protect from the Pig's bandits first, then the main gate. For the assault, I massed macemen and a few catapults behind wooden shields. That ballista was still a major pain, because it took me a while to figure out its exact range. Lost a few engineers at first. >_>

Also, how do you do your assault the Pig's castle while escaping to the marshlands? I forget the mission. It's the one where the Pig is away. The guide talks about a hill that you can use to attack and clear out his towers that's out of range, but I've never been able to find this hill.

I can't quite remember the Snake's castle mission as I'm currently on Stronghold: Crusader now :]

However, the Pig's castle, Escape To The Marshlands mission was an... interesting one to say the least. I don't remember the guide talking about a hill? There's a hill you can use in the Wolf's castle in the last mission.

With regards to breaching the Pig's castle itself, I always went in through the West, attempting to get rid of that damn moat as quickly as possible so I can force myself in, get the dogs inside released to the enemy archers get mauled, and then hustling some Macemen up to take care of the rest. Then it's just a question of using your surviving archers to get on top of the towers to take the others out, whilst using your left over troops to rush the rest of the inner-bailey.

I think this will stay nicely on topic. Here's to another 500!

Sam,

You don't need to stay on topic at all. Look at the previous topic.

Hopefully this one will take less than 5 years.
So i get in a _____ and backflip
BUT I SURVIVE. I actually completed the flip, at the same time avoiding an RPG. I cannot express how awesome I feel right now.

Iunno. This board still has topicality, and the mods are fickle as all get out. I was part of the OBVC on the Oblivion boards, and we got modded to hell and back a year or two ago for social topics that still consisted primarily of game discussion.

I've also seen several dead boards used for social hideouts modded as well.
