Four rivals compete to reign supreme in Mordsweiler, a wide valley high up in the mountains of Tandria. It may be beneficial to choose your strategy wisely depending on your starting position. There are two marketplaces allowing trade with the world behind the high mountains, one located at the western border, the other at the eastern border. To the north is a cavernous labyrinth of cliffs, a defended sector which offers a victory point when conquered. If you are looking for help in overcoming your competitors, search for the Pilgrimage Site in the north, the Enchanted Tower in the southeast or the Dark Fortress in the southwest.


The Realm of Nienroth is divided by a broad river. Two rulers have set up camp on opposing sides of the river. By the riverside, you'll find another town sector - already fortified by palisades - which offers a victory point when conquered. Long bridges grant access to a huge river port located nearby. Two special places are also worth a visit; the Royal Observatory in the northwestern mountains and the Ancient Library near the meandering river in the south. Choose your tactics wisely depending on your starting position, as it may favor a certain strategy.
