new troops get onto the 
battlefield, the sooner they'll 
get the experience they need. You'll also need to leave behind a defense 
force afterwards to hold back enemy troops who will try to recapture the 
area. (More details about defense forces on page 28.)

you create, and you expend a certain amount of gold for each humanoid

receive salary, the amount paid being determined by his or her Cass.

If you want to keep your castles from being captured by the enemy, you 
need to leave a defense force behind to guard against further attacks. After 
you select the area you want to advance to, a window appears with the 
names of the castles you need to tend a defease force la Next, pick the 
characters you will use as your defease team. Don't assume that just 
anyone will do—if your defense learns aren'l strong enough they will be 
defeated by the enemy, and you will have to march back to reclaim the

by highlighting the first member with the 
D-Button and pressing Button C, then 
selecting the next member. A maximum 
of five characters can be assigned at a 
lime, but three reasonably well-armed soldiers or able-bodied monsters 
should be able to hold the territory for as long as is necessary. 

When you've finished assigning troops 
to the castles, the number of days they 
can hold their positions appears next to

many days to win the next battle.

When The Time Comes 

As you know. Veloncse is already working on counteracting the spells 
which the great wizard Gilliam placed on the Jewel of Darkness. Fortu¬ 
nately, Gilliam is the greatest sorcerer in Cheshire, and his spelb are 
extraordinarily complex. Even his most skilled pupil, the dark wizard 
Velonese. will need months of incantations and spell reversals to break the 
magic seals on the Jewel 

Unfortunately, not even Gilliam can tell how long it will take to break 
those seals. If you rush too hastily to destroy Veionese's Elemental 
demons you may be able to make it to the island where the Dark Wizard 
awaits, but you need to build up your unit's strength before you have any 
hope of defeating the Dark Wizard.

Suggestions And Strategies 

• You need to leave fighters behind to fend off attacks the enemy will 
make on territory you've gained. Remember that not only does it cost 
valuable time to go back and retake and castles you've lost, but you also 
lose the extra income the castles and surrounding villages are sending 
you as support. And your troops are not going to be happy if they have 
to work without wages. 

• When you're brining out your team after the first battle, take a moment 
to look at the enemy's positions and consider your own unit's movement 
and fighting abilities. For example, since Serpents can't travel far on land 
per turn, you'll want to bring them out first so they can get a ahead start, 
and save the fast-moving creatures like Moppogryffs and Rocs for last. 
Use the terrain map to find out which Lind types each of your characters 
moves over best.
