Warlords have risen to test leadership and tactics, as players carefully manage their resources, gather armies and recruit heroes as they strive for victory. Lord Morglin Ironfist is forced to flee his homeland through a magical portal, because his cousin, Ragnar, had usurped the throne after his uncle, Ragnar's father, killed Ironfist's father, the legitimate owner of the throne. He finds himself along with his few followers in a strange and uncharted land, called Enroth.

Featuring twenty scenarios of challenging gameplay, this opus offers players the opportunity to use powerful spells to wipe out enemies, build massive armies and fight to the last man in epic battles.
