Is there any custom message after picking up Armageddon's BladeArmageddon's Blade, Sword of HellfireSword of Hellfire, Breastplate of BrimstoneBreastplate of Brimstone or Shield of the DamnedShield of the Damned in this campaign?

I found there was no special message text here when the victory conditions were met in some specific scenarios.(The same goes for other campaigns, such as Foolhardy Waywardness) --- Sanust (talk) 00:03, 29 January, 2024 (CCT)

  • Armageddon's Blade Campaign, Map 2: Seeking Armageddon:
    • Picking up Sword of Hellfire: "Lying atop a small altar is a sword, its blade forged in the putrid flames of Hell itself. It calls to you and you oblige its wicked desire for carnage by strapping it to your side."
    • Picking up Shield of the Damned: "As the ground glistens from the coursing magical energy surrounding it, you notice a shield that is charged with hellish flame. Red and black flames lick about its surface and outline it in an ominous way."
    • Picking up Breastplate of Brimstone: "Gleaming in the sun is a breastplate that glows with an eerie orange light. As you get closer, you notice that flames appear to dance within the metal, under its surface. It is an odd looking sight to be sure. You immediately recognize that which you have sought for so long, The Breastplate of Brimstone."
  • Armageddon's Blade Campaign, Map 4: Maker of Sorrows:
    • Seer's Hut seeking Sword of Hellfire, Shield of the Damned, Breastplate or Brimstone and Sphere of Permanence:
      • Proposal message: <<"My master said you would be coming. He told me to meet you here and to expect that several artifacts would be delivered. Do you have the Sword of Hellfire, Breastplate of Brimstone, Shield of the Damned? Oh yes, he also mentioned you would be bringing my Sphere of Permanence. I've been missing that for many months now. Do you have all of these things?">>
      • Progress message: <<"If you do not bring all that you are supposed to, how do you expect my master and I to work on your Blade? We must do everything properly, else the intricate workings shall fail and the Blade will be useless.">>
      • Completion message: <<Khazandar and his apprentice go in the back and soon is heard the sounds of spells being cast, the pounding of hammer on steel, and the swearing of an injured hand now and again. After some time, old man Khazandar emerges from the forge bearing a blade wrapped in thick cloth.

He unwraps the cloth slowly and a pulsating light emanates from the weapon so recently forged. The blade looks odd, like none ever seen in Antagarich before. The hiltguard is shaped like an eagle and the blade has a strange shape to it, yet it bears the unmistakeable appearance of a weapon most foul.

"Here is your blade, Dark One. Thank you for your payment. Now leave me be"'>>

  • Not related to the text itself, but Khazandar meets a rather horrible end after forging the Armageddon's Blade: <<As your army approaches the city of Jagos, you can see a peculiar thing. There are scores of men crucified upon the battlements. One in particular stands out. He has longish gray hair, a full beard, mustache, and a strange aura about him, even while dead. It appears as though Grand Forgesmith Khazandar has met his untimely end, and not in a pleasant manner either. Rather, not only has he been killed, but he has been humiliated and put on display for others to mock and jeer as well.

You can smell the carnage for miles, yet you are drawn to this place inexplicably. Something must be done to stop this madness. Those who follow the dark one called Lucifer shall pay with their lives is the silent vow you mutter to yourself as you continue up the road.>>

  • Armageddon's Blade campaign, Map 7: To Kill a Hero:
    • Armageddon's Blade is laying in front of Xeron. The mapmaker didn't bother to add it to his Hero Placeholder. The text goes: "Here ya go Xeron. Here's the big bad sword.". IIRC the player can read this text by using fly and dimension door. But to be fair the same mapmaker placed 7 Scholars with different spells around some hero instead of customizing the hero's spells in the spellbook. Perhaps this was not possible before AB map editor was released.

I believe these are all texts related to the AB in the campaign itself. - Csaros (talk) 16:35, 28 January 2024 (UTC)

Thanks for you help! I have filled in all the missing content about AB campaigns. --- Sanust (talk) 15:29, 29 January 2024 (CCT)
