Glory of Days Past → A New Way

I found that the key to this campaign is not to be afraid of losing towns as you head down the underworld, and also to build your forces before heading down. Blue can out-hire you initially and they have Ogre Mages, which are really great as damage-soakers if nothing else. Losing towns loses you money per day, but money seemed plentiful (possibly because the AI doesn't try to flag every resource, sometimes just riding by them!), so don't worry too much. In the worst case, trade resources for cash.
Have a strong expeditionary force. Keep buying troops practically every day and have them meet you if you are on the move and exploring. Charge down to the underworld and take Blue's castle, which is the only one that has a Tavern.
Once you do that, you will see that Blue had a strong town, including the Breeding Pit that increases creature production 50%. Stock a strong army and slowly head up, keeping an eye on the teleporters or leaving a reserve force to hold castles.
Now that you've swapped positions with Blue, blue will be on the receiving end of what it did to you. You can now hire faster than Blue and you can also hire Ogre Magi.
As soon as you take the last city, you win (unless there are enemy armies around, in which you must hold your cities for 3 days), so be sure to have picked up all the permanent bonuses, including those from towns, before finishing. Quest
