Campaign[edit]

Right-click text[edit]

Before we can declare our independence we will need a symbol. That symbol is the Grail, which was lost in this area centuries ago. We must find it, or our plan will dissolve even before we can set it in motion. You have but three months to locate the Grail.

Prologue[edit]

SECRETA.png

For the first time in the history of the Contested Lands, humans and elves have fought alongside one another to defend the region from invaders. When the celebration is over, old hatreds will return and we will be citizens of a land in conflict. We must think about the future of the Contested Lands. It is time to shape its future. If our fight for independence is to succeed, we need something greater than our armies to motivate the populous. We need a symbolic cornerstone. Seek out the Grail in the enchanted lands where the Unicorns converse with the trees.

Scenario[edit]

Map description[edit]

To win, you must find the Grail within 2 months.

Starting options[edit]

Timed events[edit]

Day 1 - Intro part 1
Even as you gather your forces to find the Grail, word reaches you that Erathian and AvLee forces are mobilizing to crush your bid for independence. Already, local militia from both Erathia and AvLee stand in your path. Fortunately, they lack leadership.
Day 1 - Intro part 2
Some of the locals are declaring for you. Most people are not taking sides. You MUST find the Grail to convince the majority that your cause is just. With the Grail, the majority will join you. Without it, troops from AvLee and Erathia will defeat your forces and hang you from the nearest tree.
Day 7 - Sister text
Scouts report your sister is to the north with a large force of War Unicorns from AvLee. Unlike you, she believes the Contested Lands belong to AvLee and declaring independence is treason. Your spirits sink, as you had hoped to avoid fighting her.

Rumors[edit]
