Yes in fact it is required, all play testing was done with the equilibris mod.

Hi there! Great campaign, I really enjoyed it!

I have a problem though, on the last map, how can i get to Vixen? I defeated Mirlanda, Paulus and the other "colonels" of the Coalition, and sent Lamentia through the portal to talk to Nathaniel. And now?
I saw a portal that exit in the area where Vixen is located but I can't access to it. Am I missing something?

Have you visited Lonehawk and read the 4 Logbook entries? After that you must speak with the High Priest Alatediar (behind a Portal in the "Wolf's Eye").

Hey Jeff, excellent campaign thanks. <br> <br>Myself and a couple of other friends just recently bought HoMM IV again after many years(thanks GOG)and having a blast with Dragon's Fate. Hard to beat Heroes IV for the campaigns especially after HoMM V. Thanks again.

Yes, I've been replaying Dragons' Fate for the last few months and I'm about ¼ the way through the last map. I just found the Lonehawk Quest Hut, but so far, he isn't home. So I'm exploring and building up my castles.

This is such a great campaign, such fantastic story & character development, lots of great battles and quests. I highly recommend it to everyone. Thanks again Jeff. Image

It is gratifying to see new and old (not age) fans still playing and enjoying DF; for me that is what it is all about. Its creation and doing LS was everything I now enjoy about gaming. The fact UBI/Nival failed to produce a good campaign editor or game that lent itself to fan made campaigns is what eventually drove me away from Heroes V. I am disturbed and saddened by the fact it appears UBI/Black Hole Entertainment is going to make the same mistake. That may well signal the end of my involvement with the Heroes and MM universe.

It really is nice to see the old games still being played. User-made maps and quality campaigns like this one is the main reason why. :)

But, please, don't let this "end of involvement" happen, before you have finished and released the "prequel" in work, the "Beginnings" of the story of Talon and his group. ;)

With HodgePodge's help (reanimated) the work could proceed with success, and I will do what I can as support, too.

YES, WE CAN!!! :D

Thanks Koni, perhaps I will finish it, but I have not even looked at it since I sent the last version to you. My summer was disrupted when two of my three dogs died, Hera who appears in the underground of DF when she was a puppy died in early July and the male Zane at the end of the same month. :( Those events just took all the wind out of my creative sails. It may come back and if so I will relook at the Beginnings. Of course contributions from you and HP will certainly help move the project along.

Hello,

I've played the Campaign a few years back and now I intend to play it again, this time no cheats.
Now I'm stuck in the Third Map, where Karth and Lorelei explore area in search of Dragonkeepers. Warning, spoiler ahead! (The 'spoil' code doesn't seem to work so I'll colour it with difficult to read font, to show the content one should copy it or highlight with mouse-selection):

[spoil]Karth and Lor have stolen the Fairy Dragons Scroll, but it hadn't appear in my equipment (probably to prevent me from using it and loosing). Then I went to Eefreet. Then I revisited him and fought him, which caused destruction of his house (quest hub). Then I intended to go back to Blue Player Elve Town to give the scroll back to Druids. On my way there, I was attacked by a small group of Elves and Griffins. The gates to the Blue Town are sealed, because my heroes are suspected to be responsible for the thieft, and I see no way to actually repell my deed. It's getting worse, as second hunting team includes phoenixes and will smash me, and I have nowhere to escape (I lost my town).
I think I might spend too much time for pointless map-wandering. I don't know if the fact I subsequently partially did a quest for Nightstar (elvish Dargonkeeper) but revisited him with the potion not before I saw the gates banned, has much to do with my current trouble.
How can I repay back?
[/spoil]
I wouldn't like it if I had to start the map over again. It's so disturbing as I remember that on my firts playthrough it was relatively easy to go through this map. Please help!

Ok it has been 15 years but I looked at some of my files; unfortunately I think win 10 is keeping me from fully opening some of the event steps. However, try returning to Lemmar. I can't open up the part of the script that tells me if you must survive the phoenix attack first. So try if not and if no other course use the win cheat to defeat the phoenix.

I'll try it. Too bad that newest Windows is picky this way, it shouldn't favour new programmes over old ones. Maybe one day there'll be something like DosBox for Win XP era? Who knows.
Thank you very much for help! Also congratulate on so extensive and vast campaign, and the second campain in addition to this one (Lamentia's Story). Both are fun to play and track heroes' fates and choices and symphaties. Good work! A lots of better than original campaign set for HoMM IV.

Edit:

It worked! I visited Nightstar with Karth and Lemnar with Lorelei at the same time, then had to wait a few in-game days. Phoenix band hit me, but I fled to Blue town where I became locked between walls for a short time. Then the gate opened as the news reached the blue city. Now I'm exploring onward!
Much thanks!

Jeff, in case you haven't had the pleasure yet, I can highly recommend downloading iLiVeInAbOx05's Map Generator Tool. It allows you to view, move, copy etc scripts. It has an easy 'tree view' giving good overview of sequences etc.
Now Rubinia found the solution, but still the program is highly recommendable. Also did I mention you can copy/paste map areas and paint with the void terrain.
