The Campaign Edit

The original Campaign of Warlords Battlecry III has you trying to fight an ancient evil that arrived just recently on the face of Etheria.

During the campaign you have the chance to travel through the land to gain alliances against the evil, find powerful artifacts and gain specific boni (which only work in the campaign).

Notes: Edit

  • It is not possible to ally with the Daemons since there is no region which they rule.
  • Similiar, it seems impossible to ally with the Knights - though I have to try using the repeatable missions.
  • You can only Ally with the Wood Elves if you already start friendly with them.
  • You have to choose between the Dark Elves and the Dwarfs, there is no way to ally with both.
  • To Ally with both the Empire and the Ssrathi, you need to defend Kalpaxotl first and then defend Ensmouth.
  • Closing Rift at Sundered Isle will imcrease relation with High Elves by 1.
  • Completing 3rd Gift of Coatli will reduce relation with Ssrathi by 1.
  • Twillingt Wood's mission line will set up you relation with Fey to ally.
  • Khazdhul Mines mission in Khazdhul increase relation with Dark Dwarfs by 1.
  • Completing The Garb of Thyatis on Guardia will reduce relation with Knights by 1.
  • Getting Keep to lvl 5 in Ehlariel will also improve relation with High Elves by 1.
  • Protect High Elves at Lunarion will add +1 to relation.
