Take over one city at a time with your hero to eventually rule the entire land! Recruit troops, buy weapons and steeds, and learn skills along the way.
Don't Be A Hero - The first one in is the first one dead. If you are low on health potions don't risk being in the middle of a swarm of enemies, stay to the outside and take them out one at a time.
Magical Weapons - Enemies drop magical weapons. Some of these can be far better than the ones you get in the merchant shop.
