The Breach map

Felheim will spawn a total of 3 soldiers and 1 spearman. The player will receive 2 soldiers and 2 spearman.

While a village is present, the enemy will never attack it. This however can be used for reinforcement, if the player is already familiar with this feature.


8th June, River Aldor

Some months after the death of Mercival, Mercia ascends the throne as queen of Cherrystone. Felheim have begun their invasion against Cherrystone, as scouts breach the country's border.

It becomes clear the Felheim army will only continue to advance upon Cherrystone.

Wiki Guides[edit]

Simple strategy

Hint: Move in to attack as soon as you can.

The mission is extremely easy to S-rank. Follow the tutorial, then when given free control, immediately attack the enemy soldier with your own soldiers. On Turn 3, you just need to eliminate any standing enemies by attacking with all units.


Opening Cutscene
Several months later...

Emeric Neutral.png Congratulations on your coronation, Queen Mercia.

Mercia Neutral.png Emeric... Do you really think I'm ready to be a queen?

Emeric Happy.png I have no doubt. You are your father's daughter.

Mercia Extra.png I hope you're right...

(Enter Swordsman)

Cherrystone Portrait Small.png Royal Guard: Your Majesty! Felheim scouts have breached the border!

Mercia Extra.png They're here, in Cherrystone?

Mercia Extra.png ...

Mercia Extra.png I can do this.

Emeric Happy.png I know you can.

(Exit Mercia, Emeric, and Caesar)

Cherrystone Portrait Small.png Royal Guard: Wait! Your Majesty! Your crown...!

(Exit Swordsman)
Mission Dialogue

Introduction dialogue

Emeric Sad.png These skeletal warriors are Felheim troops!

Emeric Neutral.png We must defeat them all to secure this region.

Emeric Neutral.png We should begin by attacking the closest Dreadswords with out unit of Swordsmen.

Mercia Extra.png Right... Let's get this over and done with.

(Attack Dreadsword)

Emeric Neutral.png Notice the numbers that have appeared next to the two battling units?

Mercia Neutral.png Yeah! There's a little number next to each of them.

Emeric Neutral.png These represent the units' health. They appear when it drops below 95%.

Emeric Neutral.png The number 5 indicates that the Dreadsword is down at around 50% health.

Mercia Extra.png And my Swordsman is down to about 80% health. Got it!

Emeric Neutral.png Then let's attack the Dreadsword with our second Swordsman.

(Select to attack Dreadsword)

Emeric Neutral.png My Queen, may I interject for just a moment?

Emeric Neutral.png When selecting a target, a Damage Preview will appear above its head.

Emeric Neutral.png The Damage Preview indicates what damage will be dealt by both units during combat.

Mercia Neutral.png Sounds handy!

Emeric Neutral.png You see, the health of a unit suggests more than how close it is to defeat.

Emeric Neutral.png The more damage a unit takes, the weaker its attack power becomes.

Mercia Neutral.png So a healthy unit is a stronger unit?

Emeric Neutral.png Indeed! But it looks like your Swordsman will do just fine here.

[Mercia's Turn 1] (1) If selecting something except attacking the enemy Dreadsword from the forest

Emeric Neutral.png Let's move the unit of Swordsmen to the forest and attack the Dreadsword.

[Mercia's Turn 1] (2) If selecting something except attacking the enemy Dreadsword

Emeric Neutral.png Move the Swordsman to the tile below the enemy, and choose 'Attack'.

[Mercia's Turn 1] (3) If selecting something except attacking, after moving to location below Dreadsword.

Emeric Neutral.png Attack the Dreadsword!

Start of Felheim's Turn 1

(Dreadspears appear)

Mercia Sad.png More undead?!

Emeric Neutral.png It seems like they're not giving up quite yet.

Start of Mercia's Turn 2

(Pikemen appear)

Emeric Happy.png Friendly reinforcements have arrived!

Mercia Neutral.png Just in the nick of time!

Emeric Neutral.png Look! It seems like we've been provided with a new unit type - Pikemen!

Emeric Neutral.png This might be a good time for you to learn about Critical hits.

Mercia Sad.png Critical Hits?

Emeric Neutral.png All units have conditions under which their attacks are stronger.

Emeric Neutral.png We call these attacks Critical Hits.

Mercia Sad.png I've never heard of those.

Emeric Happy.png Do not worry, my Queen. This information is easy to find.

Emeric Neutral.png Let me show you how to find information about a unit's 'Crit'.

(Bring up Tile Info screen)

Emeric Neutral.png This is the Tile Info screen.

Emeric Neutral.png Here, we can find useful information about out selected unit.

Emeric Neutral.png This part gives us a good overview of the unit.

Mercia Neutral.png Hmm... the Pikeman Crits when adjacent to another Pikeman!

Emeric Neutral.png You can bring up this Info Screen on any unit, terrain or structure.

Emeric Neutral.png Use it often, and you'll learn fast!

Mercia Neutral.png Alright! I'll make sure to check it often.

Emeric Neutral.png When you're ready, you can close this window.

(Close Tile Info screen)

Emeric Neutral.png We should make sure that the Pikemen stick together.

Mercia Neutral.png Got it!

(Move Pikeman)

Emeric Neutral.png We've lined up our first Pikeman.

Emeric Neutral.png Let's attack the Dreadsword with our second Pikeman!

(Select to attack Dreadsword)

Emeric Neutral.png Let me draw your attention to the Damage Preview once more.

Mercia Neutral.png Oh, the arrow is flashing!

Emeric Neutral.png Well spotted. A flashing arrow in the Damage Preview is a good sign.

Emeric Neutral.png It indicates that you're about to land a Critical Hit!

(Pikeman defeats Dreadsword)

Emeric Neutral.png Thanks to the placement of the first Pikeman...

Mercia Happy.png ...the second Pikeman dealt a Critical hit!

Emeric Happy.png She learns fast! Hahaha.

Emeric Neutral.png Keeping your Pikemen together will ensure a stronger offence.

Emeric Neutral.png When encountering a new unit type, it's important to learn about their Crit.

Emeric Happy.png I'll leave you to defeat the rest of these Felheim troops.

Mercia Neutral.png Thank you, Emeric. I couldn't do this without you.

[Mercia's Turn 2] (1) If selecting something except left Pikeman's detail view

Emeric Neutral.png We should find out more about Pikemen!

[Mercia's Turn 2] (2) If selecting something except moving the right Pikeman to the correct location

Emeric Neutral.png Let's move the Pikeman on the right into a good position

[Mercia's Turn 2] (3) If selecting something except attacking the Dreadsword with the Pikeman

Emeric Neutral.png Attack the Dreadsword using the second Pikeman.

Defeated all enemies

Emeric Happy.png That's the last of them.

Emeric Neutral.png Well done, my Queen.

All ally units are defeated

Emeric Sad.png Oh no! Maybe you should have paid more attention to the Pikeman's Critical Hit condition!

Completion Cutscene

Mercia Happy.png We did it!

Emeric Neutral.png A good start, but Felheim won't stop there. We must remain vigilant.

Mercia Extra.png They'll be back?

Emeric Neutral.png Yes. And in greater numbers.

Mercia Sad.png A whole horde of skeletons...

Emeric Neutral.png Indeed, and much else besides. I'd forgotten you had so little experience with the undead...

Mercia Neutral.png Cherrystone is normally so peaceful. I've never seen them here before...

Emeric Neutral.png But now they're coming, and they won't stop.

Mercia Neutral.png An undead army...

Emeric Neutral.png All undead but one. We've spoken in your lessons of their leader - Valder...

Emeric Neutral.png ...a living man, and--

Mercia Neutral.png 'And a Necromancer of great power.' I haven't forgotten...

Emeric Neutral.png Well, we should make a move. The undead are likely to be advancing upon other parts of the kingdom.

Emeric Extra.png Emeric... Do you think Valder will come to Cherrystone himself?

Emeric Neutral.png Yes, Your Majesty. I do.

(Exit Emeric, Mercia, and Caesar)
(Enter Swordsman)

Cherrystone Portrait Small.png Royal Guard: Your Majesty! Wait!
