Map[edit]

A Prickly Business map

The path across the river is initially blocked by vines. These vines take no damage and remain full health indefinitely. Vines on the bridge are removed by destroying the Stronghold nearest to them, while both Strongholds must be destroyed to access the treasure.

All units and structures on the central island begin inactive, they will not move, attack, or use Groove. However, they can be activated through several means. Upon destroying a Stronghold, Greenfinger and Nuru will begin to move on the players, and Nuru may use her Groove. Upon destroying both Strongholds, Greenfinger will also enable his Groove. Damaging either Commander will also allow them to advance on the players early. Damaging any of the 4 units surrounding the treasure will enable them to advance upon the player. Lastly, taking a Barracks or a destroying a Stronghold will activate all units and structures on the central island--but Nuru and Greenfinger will not use Groove until their respective amount of Strongholds are destroyed.

After taking the treasure, a highlighted zone appears, where both Wulfar and the Twins must reach to complete the mission. This will begin enemy reinforcements, with a Giant, Mage, and Archer each former Stronghold's corner to the North-East and South-West. Additionally if one (and only one) Commander is defeated, an extra Giant and Mage will spawn at the North of the centre island. Afterwards, if the enemy has less than 8 units on the map, for the first time they will spawn 2 Warships, then they will spawn additional Giants, Cavalry, and Mages, across the map on all subsequent times, creating an infinitely replenishing army.

Greenfinger and Nuru do not need to be defeated to complete the mission, and defeating both of them does not grant an automatic victory.

The weather is Severe for the first two turns, after that it becomes Always Sunny. Upon taking the treasure, the next turn and all subsequent turns will have Severe weather. However, Severe weather does not affect Riflemen.

Story[edit]

13th May, Iron Root Reserves

As Wulfar and the Twins move towards the Iron Root, they are spotted by Nuru's scouts. With this intel, Greenfinger and Nuru position themselves at the Iron Root to defend against the Outlaws. The Iron Root is protected by extremely powerful vines, so the Outlaw family prepares a pincer strike, to take out the key Strongholds defending the treasure.

After successfully escaping the Gloomwoods with the Floran treasure, Errol and Orla reflect on their skills and differences from Wulfar, but are interrupted yet again by Vesper arriving to receive her gold. Now three of the heists are complete, they need only one more to pay Enid's ransom.

Dialogue[edit]

Opening Cutscene
(Enter Nuru)

Nuru Neutral.png Hey!

Greenfinger Neutral.png Nuru! I thought you had gone westward to hunt in the Lost Leagues?

Nuru Neutral.png And I thought you were at the Great Tree!

Nuru Happy.png Anyway, never mind that - it's lucky I ran into you.

Greenfinger Neutral.png Lucky? How so?

Nuru Neutral.png Scouts just told me there's a band of Outlaws working their way north through the Gloomwoods.

Nuru Neutral.png From the path they're taking, it sounds to me like they're heading for Iron Root.

Greenfinger Neutral.png The gold reserves...

Nuru Neutral.png Yeah!

Nuru Happy.png And guess what? The scouts say one of the Outlaw chiefs has come in person!

Greenfinger Neutral.png And this is cause for excitement?

Nuru Happy.png Yeah! I reckon we're in for a pretty good fight!

Greenfinger Neutral.png ...I suspect you're right.

Nuru Neutral.png Can't let those Outlaws get their mitts on our gold!

Greenfinger Neutral.png Quite so.

Nuru Neutral.png Let's put the pedal to the metal!

(Exit Nuru)

Floran Portrait Small.png Slasher: ...?

Floran Portrait Small.png Stabber: Metal petal?

Greenfinger Neutral.png Judging by the context, I believe she means us to make haste.

Wulfar Neutral.png The Vines surroundin' the hold are impenetrable.

Wulfar Neutral.png But they're fed by the roots of the Western and Eastern Strongholds...

Wulfar Neutral.png So if we destroy the Strongholds, we destroy the Vines.

Wulfar Neutral.png Then we can grab the gold and run. Escape boats will arrive for us when the time comes.

Errol and Orla Happy.png Got it, Da!


Start of enemy Turn 2

Greenfinger Neutral.png Hmm... A pincer manoeuvre...

Greenfinger Neutral.png They've certainly thought this through.

Nuru Neutral.png But they're vastly outnumbered... and they have to get past the two of us too!

Orla Neutral.png Aye! Me especially.

Trivia[edit]

  • This is the only mission to feature multiple enemy strongholds at once.
  • The map likely originally included Ally Strongholds to be defended, based on unused dialogue.
