Ruins is an adventure map location, and commonly known as one of the creature banks. It is guarded by around 40–90 undead creatures. The more guards there are, the better the reward. Treasure contains gold. After defeating the guards, the shroud is removed from all tiles within 12 tiles from Ruins. If Ruins are already visited, the shroud is removed anyway.
The guards are divided into five stacks of:
Creatures of the same speed (Wraiths/Power Liches and Wights/Skeleton Warriors) are attacking in alphabetic order from A to E.
The hero's troops are located in blue hexes 1-7 (a tail hex for two-hexed creatures) accordingly to stack positioning in the army. But if the hero has less than 7 stacks, e.g. 3, they will be placed in hexes 1-3 no matter how they were placed in the army.
Slain enemies do not respawn (should the hero retreat or be defeated).
