What he describes isn't a killer neutral. He was describing a tert that can only bombard and not attack. Now, all of us who played KC1 would understand that you can't attack, but it doesn't say that in the legend. He's right, it should be there somewhere. Perhaps add: 'Trebuchets can only bombard'

Actually, it does say that already, in the upper right corner:
"Archers, Catapults and Trebuchets can only bombard unless stated otherwise."

Oh, there it is!!

Nevermind then, it's on there.

I wonder - does it just not stand out enough? Could it somehow be emphasized more?


No i dont agree you have more maps with alot of information and new players to the map must take there time to read it all before starting there first turn. If players are to lazy to do so they should not join such games its there own fault!
Maby CC could ad a tag to each map marking the dificalty of the map for new players to warn them...

The +2 of the castle is very little in a map that a player can have 30 troops due at an 8 player game. In addition the penalty of having the counselors+castle or the King+castle making the castles not worthy


The cumulative effect of Castle + 2 Knights happens in KC1, but it's something that I don't specially like.
On KC2 I didn't want to create exponential bonus like that one, especially one that involves castles (and knights, which are both part of the objectives). Also, bonus remain far more controlled this way without adding a feature that would necessarily override the negative effect of the King. Speaking of that, I do agree that the Negative effect of owning the King + Castles should be raised.

PS- There's no negative effect of owning Counselors+Castles.....

Nice map!

The House of Ecthelion seems at a starting disadvantage. It has access to fewer resources+villages compared to the other houses. It would be ok if village V07 had a road, but there isn't so there's no road bonus. I would consider connecting V07 to a road -- it appears to be the only non-roaded village, which makes House of E seem doubly unfair. Well House of Ingwe also has V14 without any roads, but that house also has 2 mines so it's ahead of the game.

Lol ... The House of Doriath has two Knights but the Knight on the right acts like an archer. Is it supposed to be an archer? That would make more sense to me!!

Some of the hex names are bolder than others. Like C6 compared to N50. This may well be intentional but I just wanted to mention it.

I really like the way the map is. It looks amazing.

Ok, with the knights/castles issue: The bonus either needs changed or the description.

It says a castle is +1 with every 2 knights. It needs to actually be every two or be re-worded.

I could add a simple phrase like:

'not cumulative'

This has quickly become my favorite map (I have been here since 2007.) Bravo! Can't wait for Kings Court III.

Playing the bottom right corner is tricky. Big gamble whether to go for early double catapults, as there's not a ton of income nearby.

Well, I'm not even sure how it really works, so I'm not sure the best way to rephrase it, but the word 'every' needs taken out if the bonus structure isn't going to change.

Can you explain how the bonus works?

You get 1 army for every 2 Knights and 1 Castle, effect is not cumulative with other Castles

So, you need 2 castles and 4 knights to get the bonus again? Or will 2 castles and 2 knight give another bonus?

it will only work for 1 castle, no matter the number of castles you have. That's why it's not a cumulative effect

So it's more like "you get +1 for every two knights, as long as you control at least one castle"?

If so, the following key changes I think would make it more understandable:
1. Remove the Knights bonus from under the Castle key
2. Add a new line under Knights, something like "+1 for every two if you have a Castle"
3. Swap the sections about Village and Trebuchet due to space restrictions
