Stronghold / Castle / Rampart / Necropolis campaign (you play both on the evil and good sides). You must complete Rise of the Necromancer before you can play Unholy Alliance.

Manual description

Four heroes must discover the truth behind some recent occurrences. They soon learn the wizard's apprentice, Sandro, was really a necromancer with plans for world domination. Uncovering Sandro's true ambitions, the heroes must join forces to stop him, but they must first find the pieces of the Angelic Alliance in order to face the powerful necromancer in his lair.

Backstory

Four heroes must uncover the plot brewing on the AvLee-Deyjan border and the Erathian-Deyjan border. From there they must find the Angelic Alliance, invade Deyja and stop Sandro, the powerful lich who plans to conquer the world.

Heroes

Important information

  • Although previous Shadow of Death campaign descriptions state that Crag Hack, Gelu, Gem, and Yog advance to the next campaign (i.e. Unholy Alliance) with their primary skills, secondary skills and spells, it is not true. Heroes appear on level 25 in their first scenarios, but with no magic (Gem with one spell), and, what is even more important, with random set of eight secondary skills on Expert level (i.e. they cannot get any more secondary skills).
  • If you play a scenario where Gem doesn't appear at start, don't hire her in a Tavern, otherwise you won't get Gem in a further scenario, unless you get rid of her by firing or deliberately losing a battle which won't make you lose the game as another hero should be invincible.
  • When you play for Sandro against your former heroes (Crag Hack, Gelu, Gem, Yog), they all appear with skills they obtained when you had played for them.
  • After you have played for Sandro, he appears in final scenarios as your enemy with Armor of the Damned, but without Cloak of the Undead King.

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

While it's very hard for Yog to have both Wisdom and Earth Magic (see Talk page for more information), reload first scenarios of Crag Hack, Gelu, and Gem if they don't have good secondary skills, until they have really a good set of secondary skills (Wisdom and Earth Magic are a must, and at least three or four should be one of the following: other magic schools, Logistics, Offense, Armorer, Archery, Tactics, Intelligence, Sorcery).
