Terrain and Roads


Some terrain is difficult to travel across and reduces the distance a hero can move. Roads increase this

distance. A hero with the Pathfinding secondary skill (see Secondary Skills, pg. 35) is able to reduce the

effects of difficult terrain. This chart explains the effects of terrain on movement:

Example: A hero with Pikemen (Extra Slow) would have a starting movement allowance of 15 tiles.

However, over the difficult terrain of snow, this hero would only move 10 tiles. With Basic Pathfinding,

the movement allowance of this hero would increase to 12 tiles over snow, and with Advanced

Pathfinding, 15 tiles over snow.


Boats


Heroes need boats to move on water. Boats may be: built in Castle, Necropolis, and Fortress towns

located on shores, with shipyards; summoned using the Summon Boat spell; built at Adventure Map

shipyards; or found elsewhere on the Adventure Map — perhaps abandoned by another hero.


Boarding or disembarking from a boat takes the remainder of a hero's movement allowance for the

current day. To put a hero on a boat, click on an unoccupied boat. To disembark a hero, move the boat

carrying that hero to a valid shore location, indicated by the anchor icon. Boat movement is made at a

hero's full movement allowance. A boat can only carry one hero and their army at a time.


The Subterranean Level


Some maps contain a subterranean level. Heroes may enter subterranean gates to pass between the

surface and the underground. Pressing the Elevation Toggle control button switches the Adventure

Map's view between the two levels.
