    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. …

    The rules for the battle against the conquerors differ from the rules described in the two preceding chapters. You do not move the conquerors across the game board – they stay in their forts. To conquer the forts, you must besiege them. First, you move your units (knights, cannoneers, and cavalrymen) to an unoccupied intersection at a hex with a fort. …

    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. …

    CATAN - The Legend of the Conquerors - Developer Blog Series - Part 8

    The picture below shows the northeast of Catan after the set-up phase. As in Chapter 1, at the beginning of the game, each player already has 2 settlements and 1 city. Each city also has a city wall, and each player has 1 basic knight at their command for free. You definitely need this reinforcement because after conquering the northwest coast of Catan (Chapter 1), even stronger invading troops penetrate into the northeast. …
