The shipwreck is an adventure map location, and commonly known as one of the creature banks. It can only be found in water. It is guarded by 10–50 wights. The more guards there are, the better the reward. The treasure contains and possibly one treasure class artifact.
The guards are divided into five stacks of 2/3/5/10 Wights (red hexes) and 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).
Searching the shipwreck after the guards have been defeated decreases morale by 1. Visiting additional shipwrecks will not further decrease morale.
