Good Evening Sire.

Only Jesus are able to go over water. Oh stop...Chuck Norris too. But no one else. So you are best protected by moat around your castle. Every * * Noob are able to climb a mountain.

Thats it. Have an nice day!

Flat land surrounded by a moat; for the reason that you can have both lots of farm land outside the castle and still have a great defense. The size of the moat was not specified, so I would make mine rather large, giving my archers enough time to shoot the enemy :)

Easy...both.....flat land leading to a moat with a spire in the middle next to a cliff with a waterfall on each side and a bridge to get to the keep....You can see over the plains below to see armies coming from three directions....then they have to cross the water to get to he cliffs and then have to scale the cliffs....easy pickings for arrows and rocks. Meanwhile, in a siege, you still have access to water caught from the waterfall. If the water comes off a plateau at the top (like Victoria falls), you will be able to see enemies coming from above as well, and they will have difficulty bringing in siege equipment due to the river and bridges required to cross the river, which can also be collapsed.

A mountain peak is an ideal spot on which to construct a castle, if only for perhaps the two most important reasons: it is more difficult for the enemy to stage an effective attack, and it is easier to defend with fewer troops. Let's look at some of these advantages in greater detail. First, the rugged terrain makes it more difficult if not impossible to bring along heavy siege equipment. Second, the enemy will of necessity need to attack upward, wearing out the attacking troops before they can even engage in the already physically arduous task of fighting; on the other side of the coin, the defenders will be fighting in a downward direction, making the use of projectiles and heavy, rolling objects more effective. Yet a third possible advantage is a more effective use of sally forth tactics. Mountain peaks often feature narrow defiles and passes which are perfect ambush spots and bottlenecks, essentially making for perfect death traps. A fourth thought that comes to mind is the weather; the higher altitudes involved means the chance for snow and other inclement weather is greater, meaning the attacker's men will live in discomfort and lose men to the extreme cold during a siege, while a well-provisioned castle will have defenders who are more consistently fresh.

It's a castle...

On a mountain peak,
That makes people freak,
cos it takes a week,
to climb the creek,

Something so bleak,
It makes you weak,
It makes you reek,
And reds your cheeks,

You can't take a leak,
The rocks are antique,
You might slip n shriek,
and damage your sleek,
Dam beautiful physique,

If you, so to speak,
Meet a mountain peak,
Don't go medieval greek,
Just do a loud squeak,
"Let's Play hide and seek",
"All day and all week",

Lots of Love
GriffMaster
This is my work so please don't steal it.

I would rather create it in the mountains because the rocky terrain allows for really only a few key vital spots that you have to defend. However they both have their perks, for instance, the flat terrain allows for more building space and a more diverse selection of buildings as well as more wood available. But when it comes down to it I'd rather have defense than diversity so mountains it is. :D :) :lol:

To build upon the mountain, or upon the flat terrain?
Deciding which would be the best could drive a King insane.
One boasts strategic leverage with shear cliffs to thwart your foes,
The other, ample room to farm, protected by deep moats.
Tho' open fields entice me like a maiden at the ball,
I must build upon the mountain, for the mountain will not fall.
