This is the second map in the Heroes of Might and Magic III: Restoration of Erathia campaign Spoils of War.

Backstory[edit]

In times of strife, your mercenary ways will earn you great rewards. With Erathia collapsing under the weight of the Nighon onslaught in the east, the opportunity for some land grabbing has presented itself in the west. Erathia's lands are ours for the taking.

Briefing[edit]

Duke Winston Boragus, leader of Krewlod, has offered you a mercenary contract which will require you to make a series of raids into Erathian territory. The plan is to plunder enough gold to allow the armies of Krewlod to purchase what it would need for... other things.

Cinematic Briefing[edit]

Your abilities have been brought to the attention of the barbarian nation of Krewlod. Their skirmishes with the Erathian military on their eastern border are legendary. Many credit them for hardening Erathian soldiers. Recently, a border raid resulted in victory, and uncharacteristically, a large number of prisoners. Upon interrogation, their suspicions were confirmed. Without King Gryphonheart, Erathia has lost its soul. Your goal is to quickly plunder Erathian land within Krewlod's immediate reach. Once they have the resources they need... war will be discussed. Until then, your independent participation is needed. Should you be captured, Krewlod will claim you were an over zealous clan leader, acting outside the interests of the nation.

In-Game[edit]

Long have we skirmished with the Erathian Military on our eastern border. Many credit us for hardening their soldiers into the strong fighters they have become. A recent border raid resulted in victory, but it also resulted in an uncharacteristically large number of prisoners.

Our interrogations of these prisoners confirmed our suspicions. Without their King, Erathia has no heart. Our goal is not to start a war, but to quickly plunder the land that is easily within our reach. Once we have the resources we need... war can be discussed.

Until then, we require your independent participation to raid the Erathian territories to our immediate east. Should you be captured, we will claim you were merely an overzealous clan leader, acting outside the interests of the nation.

You will be paid well, but you will need to work for your money. The Duke has determined that Krewlod will need at least 200,000 gold to properly fund any further ventures. Get going, and good luck.

Quest/Objective[edit]

To win, you must accumulate 200,000 gold. Your Heroes will be limited to 12th level in this scenario, but your 8 strongest Heroes will be available to you in the final scenario of this campaign.
