In 1226 a widespread crusader fervor spread through Western-Europe. The Teutonic Order active in the Holy Land was given a small piece of land on the borders of Poland to defend it against its Pagan Prussian neighbors. Seeing it as a good practice ground for their wars in the Holy Land the Grand Master took the opportunity and brought the fight to the Last pagans in Europe. Little did he know at the time that the tables would turn and this small piece of land in the Baltic would become a holy state the size of a country...
For all you risk fans out there. In honor of the great Risk maps created by King Bob VI I've made a scenario very much like it, set in the Medieval Baltic region. You might be familiar with King Bob VI's Risk: Crusader, Risk: Hundred Years' War and daftpanzer's advanced Risk style system on which I based this scenario obviously. I've always enjoyed playing them as it creates a strategic gameplay unique to age of empires. This Risk version features 19 capturable castles and outposts, 6 active players and is based on the actual Baltic region. Several alliances exist and may change during the course of the game. Be prepared for a fun and lengthy battle set in yet another historical background.
You can play this scenario from the custom campaign menu.
There's also a small scenario included which showcases the general Risk maps and shows you how they work.
For some reason all my castles are re spawning troops automatically costing me all my gold. I haven't selecting the buildings but it doesn't matter they keep buying.
Currently I only have two castles, Danzig & Marienburg

Did you ever chat something? Try chatting 2, this should disable auto-creation. The version on steam seems to be working fine but maybe I need to reupload this version.
Btw the Teutonic Knights in Marienburg are free.

Thanks for the review Mash ;).
[Q]while there were times in which units of various strongholds under my possession were automatically created, thus draining my resource stockpile of valuable gold[/Q]
There are some units that auto-spawn but they're free. Otherwise it shouldn't happen unless you've chatted "1".
It's in the hints I believe. "1" enables auto-creation and "2" disables it. I added it because it can become tedious to have to select buildings all the time.

That makes sense, I missed that part. I'll have to check it out again. I was sure my gold had drained from being over 1200 to just 800 at one stage when I hadn't done anything.

Hi there! Presumably the updated Steam version has been taken down?
