Tunnels and Troglodytes is the fourth and final scenario of the Liberation campaign in Restoration of Erathia Restoration of Erathia.


Right-click text[edit]

We now know how Erathia fell to Nighon and Eeofol. They literally tunneled their way under the Nighon Straits, breaking into the Dwarven Tunnels along Erathia's coast. We must now force them to use the tunnels again - this time as an escape route as we drive them from Erathia's lands forever!



Catherine Catherine : We now know how Erathia fell to Nighon and Eeofol. Through an extensive network of underground tunnels dug by the Overlord’s armies, they struck simultaneously in many areas with overwhelming numbers. Credit the military for holding the invasion to half the country. We have discovered the main artery for transporting forces from Nighon to Erathia; it is under the ocean, connecting the Nighon underworld to the Erathian mainland. Bracada and Avlee have sent armies to join the fight. First we must eliminate the remaining Kreegans and Nighon forces from the mainland, then pursue them underground, and drive them back to the shores of Nighon.


Map description[edit]

To win, you must capture all enemy towns and castles and defeat all enemy heroes. Some Border Guards can only be passed if a Hero carries a Quest Artifact from a previous scenario, but the reward is great indeed.

Starting options[edit]

Timed events[edit]

Day 1 - Intro part 1
The Dungeon Overlords are clever. While the Devils of Eeofol attacked Erathia's borders, the forces of Nighon tunneled nearly the entire distance to Steadwick, launching surprise attacks almost simultaneously across the nation.
Day 1 - Intro part 2
We should credit the Royal Erathian Military Command for holding the invasion to just the eastern half Erathia. Regardless, we now have the Dungeon Overlords on the run. Your job is to pursue them back under the Nighon Straits and establish a foothold in THEIR home.
Day 1 - Intro part 3
Forces from AvLee and Bracada will assist us in this final push. No Nighon or Eeofol outposts can be permitted to survive in the tunnels. We must teach the Dungeon Overlords a lesson they will never forget. Good luck.
Day 2 - Sailing away
You might be able to take a large force to Nighon by sea, attacking them from above, but you must use caution as the reef-filled Straits are both wide and treacherous.
