The map includes Fog of War.

The player begins with 3000 gold. With the mage, this gives them 10 uses of the mage's healing.

There are no buildings to recruit units, but prisoners can be rescued in the map to grant additional units, listed below:

  • East: 2 Soldiers, 1 Spearman
  • North-West: 2 Soldiers, 1 Archer
  • West: 2 Spearman, 1 Archer

While a set of archers are present within the main chamber of the map, they will not attempt to attack any of your units through the walls until one of the surrounding gates has been destroyed.


13th June, The Gloomwoods

While Mercia and Emeric travel through the Gloomwoods, Caesar could sense villagers in danger. Alongside his personal guards, they encounter a fortress occupied by bandits, with villagers imprisoned inside. Caesar valiantly dashes to the rescue, charming the trapped villagers to his side, and scaring off the outlaws.

After his heroic rescue, Mercia arrives to find Caesar again, and they continue on their adventure through the Gloomwoods.
