The battle of Cedynia happened on 24 June 972 during the rule of first christian ruler of Poland - the duke Mieszko I. There was a war raging over the western border of the young country. Mieszko I wanted to capture easily defended and economically important end of river Oder River. It started a conflict between murgrave Hodon who was the ruler of neighbouring marchy of Lusatia (sometimes said to be Brandenburg). Murgrave wanted to extend his territory and gathered his forces. He recieved support from another man, count Sigfried and decided to attack. He was sure of victory and his raid was a private conflict which was against the agreements made by the German emperor. However, the battle was won by Poland
This is the beginning of an article on Wikipedia on that battle which I posted since I was working on it. It's my second fixed force scenario, not too much of triggers but I'm still learning that stuff. This time it's not like in the Battle of Chojnice - you have to fight with an enemy superior in numbers. Will you win?
(a rhethoric question, in fact it's not that difficult)
Increased the German numbers, added some more flavours (they can be found everywhere in the map on your side of river) and added them a bit more of tactics
I just wonder how many have found the whining hunter there.

I'm working on the scenario now and I reduced the morale boost to +5. Also I'm adding some details and developing the battle itself.
As about the western part of map - there was a swamp in the real battle there, but I'll try to make something of it
(alright, this makes it less historically accurate but more challenging, I'd really like to get some hints on further balancing)

Its a lot of fun, but its easy and short. I only had to try twice to win. This may not be historically accurate, but how about you have to storm the German camp, where there is another hero and more men.

Honestly, it's got the historic part crippled already, the original version was less challenging, because of better accuracy.
