Starting Bonuses
A: Necklace of the Lion
B: 8 Cerberi
C: 3 Hell Chargers

Map Outline
Agrael is the hero in question, as he attempts to flee from Godric in a foreign (Haven) landscape. The map requires no town development, though your hero must navigate his way through large numbers of neutral creatures to attain artifacts and other skills needed for the final encounter. The map is quite straightforward, though it employs the use of the underground and teleporters as a means of transport.

Inferno Campaign Walkthrough

843 YSD: Falcon's Last Flight (Single Scenario)

Players: 2 (FFA)
Size: Normal
Goal: Scenario
Underground: Yes
Victory is near! It is the year 843, and strengthened by an eclipse, the Demonlords have invaded Ashan in great numbers. The Imperial capital of Falcon's Reach is surrounded and the hated Falcon dynasty is nearly extinct. The Demon Sovereign has all his attention focused on this campaign as he hopes to see the fulfillment of an ancient prophecy -- that the world of Men shall exist so long as there is a Falcon heir. There is one small fly in the ointment, however, another legend states that the scions of Falcon shall never be defeated as long as they hold Falcon's Reach. With that in mind, the Sovereign has sent his loyal general, Jezebeth to see to the end of the Falcons.

Map Outline
You play the side of evil in this smallish single-player map, which is typical of Heroes of Might and Magic 5 maps. It is a hero vs. town situation, though the AI is focused on defending its town (as is suggested in the storyline). Exploration plays a large part in the map, and there are a number of neutral battles to look out for, too.
