Third scenario of the Birth of a Barbarian campaign.

Campaign[edit]

Right-click text[edit]

You left the meeting with Boragus in a very happy mood. Wanting to prove yourself, you hurry off to Tatalia to deliver the first two pieces of the Armor of the Angelic. At first you thought this would be an easy task: you would walk into town and give the first two pieces of the Angelic Alliance to Alendora. After a few days ride from the border, you discover that Tatalians aren't going to make it that easy for you.

Prologue[edit]

When I confronted Winston Boragus, he admitted to setting Krewlod's armies against me to test my worthiness to join them. At first I was angry at this deception until the Duke pointed out that it was I who wanted to be a fighter. The Barbarian within me saw his point. But Boragus has a test designed to see whether I am truly ready to part with the Wizards of Bracada. I must take the magical Angelic Alliance sword, break it apart and distribute the pieces throughout Tatalia, Erathia and Bracada.

Scenario[edit]

Map description[edit]

Take the Sandals of the Saint and the Armor of Wonder to Alendora to win the scenario. However, if Yog is defeated in combat or you lose either component of the Angelic Alliance, the scenario is lost. Yog is limited to level 18 but will carry his experience and skills on to the next scenario.

Starting options[edit]

Timed events[edit]

Day 1 - Intro
After a few days travel into Tatalia, you discovered the Tatalians really don't want you in their territory. Since it will probably take some time to find Alendora, you are fortifying your army inside a little valley before beginning the search.
Day 4 - Journal Entry 12
Journal Entry 12: I sent my scouts out yesterday to search the countryside while I search the town, but we haven't found any sign of Alendora.

Day 11 - Journal Entry 13
Journal Entry 13: All but one of my scouts have returned to report they have been unable to locate Alendora. Hopefully the last scout is delayed because he is having better luck.
Day 20 - Journal Entry 14
Journal Entry 14: Just when I was beginning to fear that my last scout had been killed, he returned with the news that he found Alendora. Unfortunately, the man was so exhausted from his travels he managed only to blurt out something about a cave before collapsing. I ordered him to get some sleep and report to me first thing in the morning.
