Five unique heroes try to recover a mysterious artifact. On their way they have to defeat five guardians with great powers. Each hero has an unique amla path allowing you to develop 20 unique skills and spells. On the way you can find random loot and make decisions that influence the dungeons.

You can buy or find a variety of Weapons, Shields, Helmets, Armors, Rings, Shoes and Amulets. Those can be equipped in the rightclick Heromenu, that allows you to equip and unequip items, review your Skilltree and have access on consumables such as healing herbs, potions, unidentified flasks and portalscrolls.
Beside the recruiting of units you can hire mercenaries. Those are expensive, but offer to summon unique and loyal units. Each character can develop up to four different right click spells allowing you to summon units, damaging, slowing or poisoning your enemies, or to teleport yourself.
Different traps and will endanger you, while secret passages allow you to take an alternative way or to discover a variety of secrets. Enemies will now cast spells. Cheat Mode, Tutorial and Skip Story Buttons are available.
0.23 'Shadows over Elensefar': This update contains a lot of wording changes. Typos and some words almost everywhere have been corrected - there is still alot to be done. Thanks to the helpers in the Wesnoth Forum. Why calling this update 'Shadows over Elensefar'? Yes Elensefar in the Worldmap is in Danger, the orcs are up for something! Right! I created 7 Random missions that can be done for the cityguards of different cities in the Worldmap. Deliver Parcels, Scout Areas, Destroy Orcish Outposts/Watchtowers, Take out random generated Banditcamps and Monsternests and finally destroy the secret superweapon of the orcs! You can now buy 'true' teleport scrolls and use them from your menu. Dwarven Bombs have to be used from the Consumables Menu as well.
