Hello everybody !
At the moment I am at turn 105 with Carcassonne in the Mortal Empires campaign. I play it on Very Hard difficulty and I have to admit, I have some trouble and I could use your help.
Sadly, the High Elves (Lothern) made war on me, and it is truly an invansion since then. Fair Bretonnia is getting invaded by so many armies. The High elves send 6 deadstack at a time, on top of that, the Skealing and Varg are good for atleast another 6 armies fully stacked.
I am truly in trouble. I united the dukedoms of Bretonnia under one banner, sadly Alberic d'Bordeleaux didn't made it in my armies. He died when I confederate, and I couldn't fix that because Bretonnia them self where also confederating with them without Alberic d'Bordeleaux on the field
so I don't have him as a general right now.
At this moment I have all of Bretonnia, sadly after a true invasion of my lands (10+ armies fully stacked) I had to gave up the Capital of Bretonnia, Couronne, and everything in between till the city of Bordeleaux . I just recaptured that city. Everything from the North from Bordeleaux is lost territory at the moment.
On top of that, I have only 1 army. The Fay Enchantress leads a mighty army with Brave and noble Grail Knights from the Capital of Carcassonne !! I got 15 units in total ; The Fay Enchantress, 1 Paladin, 3 Royal Pegasus Knights, 2 Royal Hippogryph Knights and 8 units of Grail Knights.
This is my only hope. 3 armies and there generals (fully stacked with peasant units, like men-at-arms with shield etc) have been destroyed.
Also I made sure from the start I invested a good amount of my money in gifts for other kingdoms and empires, that is why I have some powerful allies who are helping me right now. One such ally is the Wood Elves. Thank god, if I also had to fight there MIGHTY armies, I was destroyed already.
Right now, I need to retake my land, and unite all the dukedoms again. Sadly with only 1 army, this limits me a lot, but I can't pay for more armies now either.
I need your people help !! what can I best do !?!? I could dismiss my powerful and EXPENSIVE knights in favor of cheaper units like Man at arms and more armies. But right now, the peasants are NO MATCH against the well equipped High Elf's. Only the Men-at-Arms (Polearm) have some armor piercing damage, and the Squire of course. But those are not strong enough against elf's, this means I need to use the knights.
And this means, not enough money for a second army !
What can I do !? how can I safe my realm and with units will deliver me from this Evil befallen on my lands !? The Fay Enchantress searches for a solution, and prays the Wood Elves remain friends ... if they turn against me, I am DONE !!
Thanks in advance !
