Starting movement points:

Yog (Birth of a Barbarian) is a campaign exclusive hero and is not playable in custom made maps. However, his portrait is available in map editor and can be chosen if a custom hero is created on the map.


The son of a genie enchantress and a barbarian chieftain, Yog has been studying magic to please his mother. While there he fell in love with Vidomina, before she became corrupted and turned to necromancy. He longs for battle, however, so when Duke Boragus invites him to join the Krewlod army, he jumps at the opportunity. He escapes Bracada, pursued by Aine. When he crosses the border into Krewlod, he is immediately attacked by barbarian forces. When he reaches Ulgak and meets with Boragus, he finds out this was part of a test to see if he was worthy of joining the barbarians. The other test is to disassemble and disperse the Angelic Alliance. Once Yog completes this task, he is fully welcomed into the Krewlod army.

In the main game and other campaigns, he uses the profile Yog Yog.


See his main profile for other campaigns.

Birth of a Barbarian
On the Run as a player hero.
The Meeting as a player hero.
A Tough Start as a player hero.
Falor and Terwen as a player hero.
Returning to Bracada as a player hero.


Although he is presented as a Wizard, his starting primary skills correspond instead to those of a Knight.


His specialty, interestingly, is Chain Lightning (same as Solmyr), but he cannot ever acquire a spell book: entering a Mage Guild while he is a visiting Hero results in a message box telling the player that "Yog has given up magic in all of its forms. His knowledge of battle and tactics will have to be enough to get him through the rest of his life." Thus, he cannot make use of his specialty.
