NEW GAME - CHOOSE YOUR SIDE

SS_choose.jpg

When you play a new game, just before starting the first battle you are asked to choose your side.

King Dionisus I - human armies: balanced army with good soldiers and bowmen, powerful mages, healing clerics and heroic paladins. Building special powers are good for both defend and attack.

Dark Lord - orc forces: aggressive army with high damage potential thanks to tough regenerating troops causing high hand to hand damage. Orc shamans assist the battle with effective ranged area damage. Building special powers are principally oriented to damage and kill enemies.

Dual Mode: remember you can play both armies. After you win the war with one army, try to see the other side's point of view and win the war with the other army!

BATTLE BRIEFING

Before each new battle the commander's logbook tells the development of the story and explains what both armies are going to get as new strategic tools for the next engagement. Read carefully if you want to know which new forces you'll have at your command for the next battle!

On the right page you can find a detailed list of the resources available for the next battle: available money, buildings and troops (with max number for each unit).
