Jebus Cross

From Heroes 3 wiki

One of the most popular templates overall, due to its simple layout and fast pace. Every player starts on a big, poorly guarded and rich zone with the native terrain. From the starting zone them may enter the extra-rich central zone. To do so, they must defeat strong passage guards. Once got into the central zone, the player starts to accumulate power rapidly, that's why it's crucial to get there as soon as possible (even on the first week). This template is not considered well-balanced, because the outcome depends greatly on the starting zones contents.
