Episode 180: You Build Your Walls, I Dig My Hole [Stronghold]

Good fences make good neighbors, and better walls make corpses of your enemies!  Manage the happiness of your ingrate peasant population as you try to stave off endless attacks from your political rivals.   It's easier if they're entertained, though, so train that one bear the hunters brought back to dance, and see if that gets them off your back for a while.  What's that sign say?  Wolves in 10 minutes?

Boiling tar on your downloads!

Next time on Last Time, Contra III!
