Map Editor: We've added many new adventure objects; mass cut, copy and

paste; and far more customization objects for heroes, objects and spells. This

tool enables users to edit maps and also to refine maps created by the

Random Map Generator. For a complete explanation of how to use the Map

Editor refer to the online Help File. To run the help file launch the Map

Editor from your start menu and press F1.

New Creatures: We have added 23 new Neutral Creatures that can be found

wandering the lands. See page 18 for details on all of the new creatures.

Secondary Skills: Heroes that possess the Artillery Secondary Skill can now

control Arrow Towers during Siege Combat.

Revisiting Adventure Map Locations: If a hero currently stands on an

Adventure Object, players can revisit the location by pressing the space bar.

New or Improved Adventure Objects:

Quest Gates: Before you can pass through a quest gate, you must

fulfill the quest that is assigned to you.

Seer's Huts: Several new types of quests have been added to the

Seer's Huts.

Border Gates: Border Gates are different from a Border Guard. Border

Guards disappear from the adventure map after a hero visits a

Keymaster's Tent and returns with the password. Border Gates DO

NOT disappear from the adventure map. They remain in place,

continually guarding the pass. This behavior allows certain players

to pass, while preventing other players from passing.

Hire Base Level or Upgraded Creatures: If you have upgraded your

creature structures, you may now choose to recruit either the base level or

the upgraded creature. The default is to purchase the upgraded creature.

Guard Mines With Creatures: You can drop off creatures at your mines to

guard them. Whenever you revisit a mine belonging to you, you may choose

creatures to guard it. This is similar to placing creatures in a garrison.
