    CATAN - Legend of the Conquerors – Developer Blog Series – Part 16

    Epilogue Thora and Dagur succeeded in destroying all of the conquerors’ forts in time. A prolonged drought, which had parched the stockades and made them very vulnerable to the Catanian’s flaming arrows, came to the islander’s aid, and the cannons took care of the rest. When the reinforcing conquerors arrived and penetrated into the interior of the island, they searched in vain for their comrades in arms, who they wanted to join to form a large army. Dagur set a trap for the conquerors, which resulted in the death of many enemy combatants. …

    CATAN - Legend of the Conquerors – Developer Blog Series – Part 12

    The Story of "CATAN - Legend of the Conquerors" - Chapter 3 – Part 1 Introduction The conquerors encountered stiff resistance when marching toward the largest city in the northeast of Catan. The Catanians benefited from being familiar with the terrain of their homeland and knowing the appropriate places to effectively obstruct the path of the intruders and ambush them at the same time. Whenever the conquerors were busy removing an obstruction, Catanian archers emerged from a near forest, showered the enemy with arrows, and immediately retreated into the forest. Dagur and his cavalry pursued the conquerors‘ squads of hunters and pillagers that secured provisions for their army. …
