Manual description[edit]

After the mysterious slaying of demon King Xenofex, Lucifer Kreegan solidified his rule over the clans in Eeofol. Following a visionary dream, Kreegan is rumored to have begun gathering relics to build an artifact, the legendary Armageddon's Blade, which has the power to set the world on fire.

Queen Catherine of Erathia orders her war-weary troops to invade Eeofol in order to dethrone the destructive demon monarch. But Erathia's people are split over Catherine's action.

Lucifer's hell-spawned army has pushed Erathia's soldiers back to the Eeofol-Erathia border, and there have been reports of the emergence of mysterious elemental Confluxes the size of cities. Though these Confluxes don't appear to be hostile, their intent is still unknown.

As Catherine, Roland and Gelu, you must fight the destructive Lucifer Kreegan and his demon army before he has a chance to assemble the Armageddon's Blade and engulf the world in flames.

Backstory[edit]

Queen Catherine, her husband King Roland, and Gelu, a warrior in Erathia's elite Forestguard, must work together to defeat the insane King Lucifer of Eeofol who will create Armageddon's Blade. With it, he plans to set the world on fire.

User commentary

Some may find the information in this section subjective or irrelevant.

  • There are four factions in this campaign: Castle, Rampart, Inferno, and Conflux. You should use the whole magical potential of three latter, since Castle doesn't have 5th level Mage Guild. Build Order of Fire in every Inferno town, so as to upgrade heroes' spell power.
  • In Gelu's Rampart scenarios, don't build Elves' upgraded dwellings. Gelu can upgrade their basic version, i.e. Wood Elves, directly to Sharpshooters, so you don't need Grand Elves at all. Sharpshooters don't have double attack unlike Grand Elves, but they don't need it as range and obstacle penalties are defied, their stats are significantly higher than Grand Elves' stats, and they have speed 9 which is brilliant for a shooter. They get an opportunity to kill Cerberi or Pit Lords with impunity. Save money for something more important.
