Groundbreaking is the second scenario of the Dungeons and Devils campaign in Restoration of Erathia Restoration of Erathia.


Right-click text[edit]

Our forces will cover most of the distance to the Erathian capitol by using underground tunnels. To maintain the element of surprise, you must attack any Erathian settlement you find. Use the vast network of caves in this area to accomplish this goal.



Reports claim a fleet of Enrothian warships have landed on the southern coast of Erathia. We do not know who commands this force, or its size. Through sources in Eeofol, we know Roland Ironfist cannot lead this fleet. Regardless, our plans remain unchanged. We start the last phase of our underground invasion and solidify our position along the southeastern coast. Afterwards, we can transport more reinforcements from Nighon. We have dug the last tunnels to this area. You will have the tactical advantage.


Map description[edit]

To win, you must capture all enemy towns and castles and defeat all enemy heroes. 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.

Starting options[edit]

Timed events[edit]

Day 1 - Day 1 Intro Part 1
As we tunneled into the region, we discovered a splinter colony that had long ago been thought lost. If they could be 'persuaded' to join our cause, they could provide us with additional troops needed to secure the surface towns.
Day 1 - Day 1 Intro Part 2
We also have an agent who has been spying on the towns in the area from a small, secluded island. Find him, and he will share his knowledge of the area with you.
Day 8 - News
An advisor approaches. "We have received report that warships from Enroth have landed along the southern coast of Erathia. At this time we do not know who commands this force, nor do we know its size. Through our sources in Eeofol, we know this fleet cannot be led by Roland Ironfist."
Day 22 - News
An advisor approaches. "The news is not good. The Enrothian force to the south is led by Catherine Ironfist, daughter to the late King Gryphonheart of Erathia. She commands a large force, and has established a beachhead along the coast. Unless we hurry, she may very well reach Steadwick before us."
