Heroes Chronicles is a series of five stand-alone games and two free expansions, offering eight new single-player campaigns. They are based on the Armageddon's Blade/Shadow of Death engine, and therefore feature all the various features added by these expansions, including the Conflux town, magical terrains, and combination artifacts; however they only offer the ability to play the campaign, a tutorial map, and "preview" maps taken from the other campaigns in the series. Multiplayer, map editor, and random map generator are all absent.

Story[edit]

The Chronicles follow the story of Tarnum, a Barbarian warlord who becomes successively a knight, a wizard, a ranger, a beastmaster, and an overlord in various quests given to him so he might redeem himself.

Campaigns[edit]

WOTW, COTU, MATE, and COTD were sold independently. TWT was a free download for people having bought at least two of the Chronicles titles, and TFM was a free for those having bought at least three. ROTB and TSOF were bundled together as "The Last Chapters". They are now all sold together on GOG.com as "Heroes Chronicles: All Chapters".
