Narrative: For the first time in history of the Contested Lands, humans and elves have fought alongside one another to defend the region from invaders. When the celebration is over, old hatreds will return and we will be citizens of a land in conflict. We must think about the future of the Contested Lands. It is time to shape its future. If our fight for independence is to succeed, we need something greater than our armies to motivate the populous. We need a symbolic cornerstone. Seek out the Grail in the enchanted lands where the Unicorns converse with the trees.

Suggested Solution:

A. Starting bonus - Boots of Speed

B. Approach - use several heroes to collect creatures from the surrounding dwellings

C. Strategy - first of all, build a Mage Guild in your town and have your closest hero visit it. Then, while she collects goodies near by, build a Tavern. Hire several heroes to organize an early army. On day 3 build a Blacksmith and transfer an Aid Tent to your main hero. Be prepared for numerous ambushes along the way. There are, also, many points at which you will be met by free reinforcements, so make sure you check out-of-the-way places in order to get all the events. Keep collecting creatures for several weeks, while building up your town as much as you are allowed. The more advanced dwellings are up north past the Garrisons. There is a Hill Fort there, as well - use it to upgrade your troops. Getting the artifacts behind the Border Guards is not essential, but you could, if you have the time. Remember, you get only 2 months to find the Grail so don't waste too much time on anything other than collecting troops. By the end of month 1 you should have more than enough to kill the swamp guardians and claim the Grail. Just avoid walking near the trees when you're heading into the swamp. If you get too close, you will be ambushed by a large force of War Unicorns. The Grail is randomly buried, so you definitely will need all Obelisks to identify the exact location.
