Heroes of Might and Magic III  → Armageddon's Blade

by Harukaba

Heroes of Might & Magic III: Armageddon's Blade was released in September 30, 1999 and continues the story started in Restoration of Erathia in six campaigns. Queen Catherine and King Roland are rebuilding Erathia following the Restoration wars when the Kreegans from the Inferno castle suddenly waged war against Erathia. Unfortunately no one is in the mood for more fighting and so defeat seems certain until a new ally appears mysteriously overnight. The Conflux town is a new addition to Armageddon's Blade and the troops are elementals from the planes of fire, water, air, and earth. Another ally is Gelu, a half-elf with the ability to turn ordinary shooters into marksmen.

In addition to the new Conflux town, other improvements Armageddon's Blade provides are a random map generator, an improved map editor, a campaign editor, and eleven new campaign heroes. What's odd is that only one of the six campaigns directly has to do with the main story.

The six campaigns are as follows.
  1. Armageddon's Blade consists of eight maps and is the main campaign in which you play both on the side of Erathia and on the side of Eofol as you alternatively try to make and take back Armageddon's Blade.
  2. Dragon's Blood consists of four maps and is the story of how Mutare takes her place as a mighty ruler in the Dungeon kingdom.
  3. Dragon Slayer consists of four maps and follows the daily life of Dragon Slayer Dracon as he goes around the countryside killing dragons with his Tower troops.
  4. Festival of Life consists of four maps as Kilgor fights for leadership of Krewlod, a Barbarian kingdom.
  5. Playing With Fire consists of three maps where Adrienne returns to her Fortress home only to find it under siege by Lord Haart and the undead.
  6. Foolhardy Waywardness is a bonus campaign and can only be played after all of the previous maps are completed and consists of four maps which you play as Christian as he tries to get back home after his boat crashes on the shore of an unknown island.

Where does this lore come from?

gelu had the blade since the kreegan campaign. he sailed to Vori, to the city voril to get the sword of frost. tarnum and his dungeon army holds him back along with the azure dragons. kilgors wife kija goes for the sword and is nearly killed in the effort by tarnum, tho he spares her. gelu finds the sword, and tarnum, and they do some sick power battle. gelu loses, and when tarnum looks to the sword again its gone, stolen by kija. the action that made tarnum spare her meant the end of the world

In the Armageddons Blade the first mission with Gelu(or Catherine let's say its Gelu)there is occassionally lied to you how to win the mission!The Kreegans are on the south-coast and you are supposed to fight a guerilla war against them. What i did was to attack the kreegans directly in the beginning of the game.(after failing a hundred times using the strategy i was supposed to)in like two months i won without capturing the conflux with a bunch of artifacts!

To othniel:

No, that campaign tells just how he became the King of Krewlod.

In one of Heroes Chronicles game you see how he got the blade.

Don't you play Kilgor in 'Festival of Life'? That AB Campaign tells how he got the Sword of Frost, I think.

World of Lore is another name for Axeoth, right?

So Kilgor was the one who collect the better wives. :D

But how did Kilgor end up with the Sword of Frost?123

Kilgor has the Sword of Frost.

I see, thanks.

Restoration of Erathia (a.k.a. RoE) is the subtitle of Heroes of Might and Magic III, the core game. It's not an expansion.

I just have a question about the expansions. What is the difference between Heroes III and Heroes III Restoration of Erathia? You listed them as seperate games in the maps section but i dont see RoE in the expansion section.
