Heroes and the
Actions in the Heroes III game are performed by heroes. Heroes explore the land, sea, and underground.
They gather treasures, resources, and other artifacts. They secure towns and Adventure Map structures,
adding them to your territory. Heroes travel with troops recruited at towns and other locations. With these
armies they can engage in battles against your enemies or lead the defense of your towns. As heroes
explore and battle, they gain experience points. When they have enough experience points, they go up a
level. At each level, heroes gain new skills and increase their abilities at skills they already possess.
In most scenarios, you start with at least one hero under your command. You can gather more heroes to
your cause by recruiting them in your town taverns. Heroes may be stationed in your town garrisons or
may roam the lands of Erathia. Garrisoned heroes lead troops stationed in a town's garrison if the town
is attacked by an enemy hero. You can have one garrisoned hero per town and up to eight roaming heroes
at any one time.
There are sixteen different types of heroes — two for each
of the eight town types. One type specializes in the use
of magic, the other is more battle-oriented. Heroes of all
types may be recruited in any town.
