    Below are the starting values of each section of the map.  Your path is linear 
    until you finish mission 3, Pirata Aerodrome, then you can make your own way 
    around the map and choose what missions to take on.  Each location on the map 
    has a unique mission.  Once the unique mission has been complete you take 
    control of that location.  If you lose a location you can take it back but you 
    won't have to do the unique mission again.  You will instead have to complete a 
    generic, take all the cities level.  These will only yield experience points 
    for you heroes.  
    
    Below are the starting values and bonuses each location gives.

    Building Cities
    ---------------
    When you take a location you can use wealth to build up the cities in these 
    locations in the same way you do in a mission.  
    
    * Military District (cost 1 wealth)
      - Awards 1 army point after construction.
      - Defends against enemy attacks.
      - Each district controlled increases the starting population limit during 
        scenarios.
      - Military districts send imperial musketeers as reinforcements to adjacent 
        scenarios.
    
    * Industrial District (cost 1 wealth)
      - Awards 1 invention the turn after construction.
      - Industrial districts send clockwork men as reinforcements to adjacent 
        scenarios.
    
    * Merchant District (cost 1 wealth)
      - Generates 1 wealth per turn.
      - Merchant districts send reinforcement caravans full of wealth to adjacent 
        scenarios.
    
    * Palace District (cost 6 wealth)
      - Upgrade to a large city
      - Generates 1 point of wealth, invention and army per turn
      - 3 non palace districts are required for each palace district
    
    The price of districts increases by 1 for each district that already exists so 
    to create a palace district will cost you (1+2+3) 6 for the districts and 6 for 
    the palace, 12 in total.  Additional palace district costs 10 points.  
    Districts under attack from enemy generals cost more to place so beware.
    
    Early on the game I would suggest building merchant districts to generate 
    wealth to expand and defend your lands.  
    
    You only need to build military districts on the edge of you territory where 
    the enemy is most likely to attack.  One military district will hold off an 
    attacking army for one turn so work out if you can save a location 
    before moving.  You only have 1 free move and 1 attack per turn so watch where 
    the enemy moves and plan your attacks and defence accordingly.  
    
    Industrial units are useful because the points provided help you research new 
    troops and also upgrades troops to use in battle.  
    
    One point of note is losing a battle against the enemy isn't always a bad thing 
    because you get the income from your resources in the city.  When you play the 
    later campaigns, especially the final one, this will come in very handy because 
    the missions at the start are very difficult until you have researched extra 
    soldiers and advances.  
    
    Campaign Goals
    --------------
    If you can take Feligno (Don Scloria) or Wasteland (Lord Rocco) you will remove 
    that general from the map.  The quicker you can achieve this the better, you 
    can then concentrate on the Doge and defending your lands should be easier.

    Your experience will carry forward into the second and third part of the

    ================================================================================
    {                                                                              }
    {                              2.3 - Mission Guide                             }
    {                                                                              }
    ================================================================================
    
    The mission section offers notes on the quests and what you need to do to 
    trigger or complete them.  
    
    Some general advice on scenario's:
    
    * Build barracks a soon as possible
    
    * Gun Turrets are probably not worth the money you pay for them.  They cost 
      around the same price as 3 musketeers but defensively 3 musketeers are better 
      because you can heal them.
    
    * The smelter research is a great way to get a constant supply of free soldiers.
    
    * When you have a big starting army you can sometimes rush the enemy and win 
      scenarios much easier. 
    
    
    ================================================================================
    ********************** Mission 1 - The Venazzi Expedition **********************
    ================================================================================
    
    Start: Giacomo, Carlini, 3 x Imperial Musketeers
    
    Main Quests
    -----------
    1) Head to the mine (+1 experience)
    2) Avenge Petruzzo (+1 experience)
    
    Side Quests
    -----------
    None
    
    
    This level is linear so follow the steps below:
    
    * From the starting position kill the 3 enemy venucci conscripts.  
    * Follow the path and kill the 3 enemy conscripts and spider.
    * At the second marker kill 4 venucci conscripts and spider, you will get 4 
      clockwork men to help.  
    * Watch Cutscene, main quest 1 completed.  
    * Destroy gate on bridge and cross.
    * Kill 6 vennuci conscripts and 2 Doge walkers.
    * Destroy the barracks to complete quest 2.  
    * Watch closing cutscene
    
    Notes:
    * You donít get any more enemies on this map than are listed above so you can 
      take your time healing and sniping with your heroes.
    * Putting your heroes in front of your menu will save health
    
    
    
    ================================================================================
    ************************************* Map **************************************
    ================================================================================
    
    * On the map you will only have one option to attack Padonia.  Take this time 
      to spend the 2 experience points on Giacomo.  I would recommend purchasing 
      the sonic boom upgrade.  
    
    
    ================================================================================
    ************************** Mission 2 - Padonia's Folly  ************************
    ================================================================================
    
    Start: Giacomo, Carlini, 2 Imperial Musketeers
    
    Main Quests
    -----------
    1) Giacomo's Walker
    2) Defeat Marwan (+1 experience)
    
    Side Quests
    -----------
    1) Relics
    2) Condottieri Outpost
    
    This level you need to defeat the enemy in the east of the map.  You can play 
    through the tutorial if you want otherwise just crack on with the game.  The 
    best strategy here is to hold at the start and build the base and your 
    forces then attack in numbers.  You'll find it hard to lose this level.  
    
    
    Main Quest 1
    ------------
    The walker is situated by the first marker on the map and is guarded by a 
    gun tower and a few enemies.  Destroy the glass shards holding it and watch a 
    cutscene where Venza, another hero, will join you.  
    
    Main Quest 2
    ------------
    Marwan is in the far corner of the map, simply build up enough troops and 
    assault.
    
    Side Quest 1
    ------------
    There are 10 relics scattered around the map to collect for small Timonium 
    boosts.
    
    Side Quest 2
    ------------
    In the northeast corner of the map is the outpost.  Simply buy, trade or 
    fight it to take control.  
    
    Notes:
    * Relics give you small Timonium boosts
    * Attacking glass shards releases trapped soldiers
    * The smelter research allows you to train an unlimited amount of clockwork men 
      and is useful when building a defensive at the start of the level.  
    
    
    ================================================================================
    ************************************* Map **************************************
    ================================================================================
    
    * You will be able to spend 2 more experience points so buy the gun turret for 
      Carlini
    * you can also add to your starting army, you only have a few points so choose 
      either a clockwork soldier or an imperial musketeer.  If you want to mix up

    After the help from Venza in the last mission you now have to help free Pirata 
    from the Doge.  
    
    This level requires you to destroy the Doge's Sky cruiser in the north east of 
    the map.  You can play the tutorial as part of this map, this is the last map 
    you have the option of showing hints.  You need to basically establish a base 
    across the ravine and use that to build a force large enough to destroy the sky 
    cruiser.
    
    
    Main Quest 1
    ------------
    Lenora is found on the other side of the broken bride.  You need to use a cargo 
    dirigible to cross the ravine.  
    
    Main Quest 2
    ------------
    You need to use Giacomo's augmentation skill to heal her and get a new hero.  
    You also get the plans for the aerodrome for future missions.  
    
    Main Quest 3
    ------------
    The Doge's base is in the northeast corner, capture it to beat this mission.
    
    Side Quest 1
    ------------
    You need to create the following to complete this quest:
    
    * Telescope
    * Research Mining 1
    * Create 3 clockwork men
    * Create 2 steam cannons
    
    Side Quest 2

    There is an Inn, A mine and an outpost in the east of the map.  Trade or 
    capture them to complete this quest.  
    
    Side Quest 3
    ------------
    Just south west of the place you find Lenora you will find an aerodrome.  Use 
    the diplomacy option and send 300 wealth and 300 Timonium to complete the quest.
    Once completed your new ally will send a constant stream of pirata fighters to 
    attack the sky cruiser.  
    
    Notes:
    * The Doge will either cross the bridge to attack your new base so defend the 
      opening to the bridge and situate all you buildings as far south of the city 
      as possible.
    * The Doge will send cargo dirigible full of troops to attack both your cities 
      so remember to defend both, although his main attack will be on your newer 
      city.
    * To defend from a dirigible build some defensive air units, gun turrets and 
      steam factories.

    After the 3 mission you are now free to choose what you want to do.  Your 
    ultimate aim is to capture the Doges capital in Venucci.  Your immediate aim is 
    to remove his two supporting generals.  You want to choose one of the capitals 
    and head for it.  Beware, the capitals are extremely difficult missions.  
    
    I will detail each mission on the map you can choose the order you want to 
    attack.
    
    You want to spend your experience and wealth before taking on each new

    1) Establish A Base
    2) Collect Timonium
    
    Side Quests
    -----------
    1) Mining Companies
    
    This is a time and resource management mission the aim is to maximise your 
    Timonium production.  Here is a guide on what to do in order to beat this 
    mission.  
    
    * From the start take the town and build up industrial, military and merchant 
      district.
    * Find and destroy the enemies and outpost to the east of your start 
      position.  You might fin it best to wait for reinforcements first, and heal 
      using augmentation.
    * By the time you take the outpost the enemy will be attacking the main town so 
      head back there and defend it.  
    * If you have enough money buy the second mine as soon as possible and make 
      sure you have the maximum caravans allowed.
    * Build a barracks.
    * Build 3 research buildings, the first create a calculator so you can covert 
      money into Timonium.  The second build a smelter for free soldiers.  Finally 
      build a bore hole and set it to Timonium.
    * Spend research points on mining, saving enough for level 3 (requires large 
      city)
    * Build a palace district to make a large district then research mining 3.
    * Build up your troops and cross the bridge.  
    * Take out enemies and capture the outpost.  
    * You need to take out the 4 mines next so kill the soldiers and take the 
      mines.  Once the soldiers are dead use 1 unit to capture each mine and head 
      east then south to find the enemy camp.  Kill the enemies here and capture 
      the outposts.  
    * Use wealth to buy Timonium to meet quota.  You shouldn't need to use any of 
      these mines to meet the quota so don't bother buying any miners for them.
    
    
    Main Quest 1
    ------------
    From the start of the level take the nearby town as quickly as possible.  
    
    Main Quest 2
    ------------
    You need to collect 2000 Timonium in a limited time period.  This will be tight 
    but if you manage your resources correctly you will be able to do it easily.  
    
    * Buy the calculator to spend gold on buying Timonium
    * Create a borehole and set that to extract Timonium
    * Research mining when you have the points
    * Buy clockwork miners when you have the points
    * Buy miners for your two mines
    * When buying troops buy clockwork men because they only need gold
    * Near the 4 mines guarded by the enemy are a few Timonium deposits that can be 
      collected
    
    Side Quest 1
    ------------
    * when you have established a base capture the mines from the enemy.  
    
    
    Notes:
    * There are some bonus Timonium deposits to pick up near the 4 enemy mines.

    3) Defeat The Scavengers (+1 experience)
    
    Side Quests
    -----------
    1) Capture The Mines (+1 experience)
    
    In this mission you need to defeat the scavengers attacking the town initially. 
    You then have to defend it whilst building up your base.  When you have enough 
    troops you need to head east to destroy the scrapyards producing the clockwork 
    monsters.  You'll need to build a barracks and then lots of military districts 
    at the start and just defend.  Steam factories are useful to help defend the 
    base if you can afford them.  Then use the smelter to help produce free troops.
    Don't forget the to research mining and politics to cause damage to enemies 
    before they get to your base.  
    
    
    Main Quest 1
    ------------
    Completed when you kill the creatures attacking the town at the start of the 
    scenario.  
    
    Main Quest 2
    ------------
    To locate the source either use a telescope and look east or move some troops 
    east.  
    
    Main Quest 3
    ------------
    You need to build up a big army and defeat the 3 scrapyards then concentrate on 
    the scavenger boss.
    
    Side Quest 1
    ------------
    You can either capture, trade or buy the two mines located in the south and 
    centre of the map.  Best to leave this mission until you have a good defence 
    build and buy the mines.  
    
    
    Notes:
    * There are some bonus Timonium deposits to pick up around the map.

    ************************* Tarona - The Rogue Viscount **************************
    ================================================================================
    
    Start: Giacomo, 2 Imperial Musketeers (+ your other army units purchased)
    
    Main Quests
    -----------
    1) Wreckage
    2) Defeat The Viscount (+1 experience)
    
    Side Quests
    -----------
    1) Aid The Mercenaries
    2) Disrupt The Power (+1 experience)
    
    This is a storm the base scenario where the main objective is the viscounts 
    base in the north of the map.  You first objective is to destroy the 
    wreckage so the snake like creatures turn against the count.  You then slowly 
    build and defend your base moving out and upwards towards the Viscount's base.  
    You can capture a second city to the southeast of your own and five extra 
    mines.  One just to the north west of the base, guarded by neutrals, one to 
    the south of your base, one to the south east of your base, one in the far 
    east and one just to the south of the Viscounts base.  Siege weapons help 
    greatly when taking the base and if you have saved enough invention points 
    you should have invested in juggernauts which are very effective.  
    
    
    Main Quest 1
    ------------
    The wreckage is just east of your start guarded by a gun turret.  Destroy the 
    wreckage and the snakes will turn on their master.  
    
    Main Quest 2
    ------------
    To capture the city you want to slowly build a good defensive position in the 
    base you start with.  The enemy will constantly storm the base so just sit back 
    and defend whilst you build up the defences, city and research.  Eventually 
    you'll be able to start pushing out down the path and take out the bunker 
    blocking the path north.  You can then take a second town to the south east to 
    help gain resources.  Then you'll want to move northwards and take out the 
    power generator to make the city easier to take.  Establish a barracks, steam 
    factory outside the base so you can generate troops more easily to reinforce 
    your attack.  Finally storm the base, eventually you will overwhelm it.  
    
    Side Quest 1
    ------------
    To aid the mercenaries you need to trade with them and eventually they join 
    your cause.  I wouldn't rush this side quest because you only gain a few troops.
    
    Side Quest 2
    ------------
    The power generator lies to the north east just south east of the Viscounts 
    base.  There are a few other structures here so destroy them all to make the 
    final assault that bit easier.

    1) Contact Distruzio
    2) Capture The City (+1 experience)
    
    Side Quests
    -----------
    1) Capture the outposts (+1 experience)
    
    This mission is also a storm the base scenario.  You do get the help of an 
    extra hero, Distruzio, when you find him just to the east of your starting 
    point.  Distruzio has a base just south of the enemy city in the north east of 
    the map.  For some reason this never falls so don't worry about defending it.  
    Once you have Distruzio you also gain his sidekick Zeke who is a rather useful 
    unit.  He can change into air, land or siege mode.  Once you have Distruzio 
    you'll want to move all your troops back to your main base.  Basically build it 
    up and defend until you have a large enough army to take out the city to the 
    north.  Once you have this city you'll want to take the outposts in the centre 
    of the map (3 in total).  This will complete the sub quest.  You should build 
    up the second base because that will be the main target for enemy now.  It 
    helps splitting forces one to guard the base and the other for conquest.  Move 
    your main force to take the city in the south east of the map.  You should then 
    build up a force and help destroy all the enemies in Distruzios city.  You 
    should then establish barracks, aerodrome and steam factory before storming 
    the enemy base.  You should take it eventually and complete the map.  
    
    This will eliminate Lord Rocco from the strategic map making life easier for 
    you.
    
    
    Main Quest 1
    ------------
    Send Giacomo to the east and you'll meet him by the mine.  Return them both to 
    your base.  
    
    Main Quest 2
    ------------
    Once you have taken the other cities establish a defensive position in 
    Distuzios city.  Then storm and capture the enemy town.  
    
    Side Quest 1
    ------------
    The 3 outpost are located in the middle of the map and will attack anyone, 
    including the enemy, who goes near.  Once you have captured them you complete 
    the mission.  You don't need to worry if you lose one because the mission will 
    remain completed.  Itís probably best not to allow the enemy to capture these 
    as he will use them against you.

    This mission has several cities scattered across the map.  You aim is to simply 
    eliminate the enemy.  
    
    Main Quest 1
    ------------
    You should build your forces up and try and take out the enemy as quick as 
    possible.  If you have a decent sized starting army you can take them out 
    almost immediately, pressing them whilst you build up your forces.  Sitting 
    back and defending makes this map difficult because it is very open and the 
    enemy can attack you from all sides.  
    
    
    Notes:
    * If the enemy general is present then you will have to take on two enemies, 
    which can be very difficult.

    Main Quests
    -----------
    1) Capture The Castle (+2 experience)
    
    Side Quests
    -----------
    1) Capture The Camps
    
    Attacking the castle can be difficult and isn't easy without the assistance of 
    the other camps.  You want to build up your defences, capture the other three 
    outposts then take the castle.  
    
    Main Quest 1
    ------------
    You need to build a barracks, an aerodrome and a steam factory.  You then fend 
    of attack after attack from the castle.  Eventually you will be able to summon 
    all your heroes so do so.  You'll then want to take out the 3 gun turrets one 
    defending the approach on each path to the castle.  Finally take out the 3 
    camps and then with the troops you receive storm the castle.  
    
    
    Side Quest 1
    ------------
    If you take out any of the camps then the castle will take them over if you 
    leave them undefended.  A good strategy is to take out the soldiers guarding 
    them and get the strength of the camp down to almost capturing it then leave 
    them.  When you have done this for all three send three of your flying units to 
    each and take them over simultaneously.  You can then storm the castle from 3 
    sides.

    1) Defend The Camps (+2 experience)
    
    Side Quests
    -----------
    1) Capture The Camps
    
    Defending the castle is more difficult than attacking in my opinion.  You only 
    have to defend it for a short period of time so simply build up your defences 
    and defend.  
    
    Main Quest 1
    ------------
    You have two camps to produce soldiers so it probably isn't worth trying to 
    build barracks, aerodrome and a steam factory.  I would probably ignore the 
    side quest to capture the camps and just concentrate on defending.  If you take 
    your main army away from the castle then it will be overrun quickly.  If you 
    have a good enough starting army then it may be easier to take a camp early.  
    After a while a timer will run out and you'll win the mission
    
    Side Quest 1
    ------------
    Take out the three camps to stop the attacks.  Not achieved this mission yet.

    This is a capture the enemy city and defend an allied city.  I would recommend 
    building an aerodrome as soon as possible and send as many flyers (or 
    destroyers if you have them) to defend the city.  You can also build gun 
    turrets to defend the city.  Once you destroy the bunkers the attacks on the 
    allied city will subside and you can concentrate on taking the enemy city.  
    
    
    Main Quest 1
    ------------
    You need to take control of the condottieri camp, company mine and city to the 
    north of the camp.  You are probably best to do these in that order.  
    
    Main Quest 2
    ------------
    You need to take out the three bunkers and that will clear the path to the 
    enemy city in the east.  When you clear the bunkers the Pirata city will send 
    help in attacking the enemy city.  
    
    Side Quest 1
    ------------
    Simply summon Lenora to complete this side quest
    
    Side Quest 2
    ------------
    Send Lenora to the allied city and you will be told that they want 300 Timonium 
    and wealth to build 2 air destroyers for you.

    1) Free The Prisoners
    2) Capture The Airbase (+1 experience)
    
    In this mission to attack the enemy base you either need Cargo Dirigibles or 
    air destroyers.  You can research an air destroyer transport which allows you 
    to transport several troops and has the same attacking capabilities as a normal 
    air destroyer. If you complete the free the prisoners mission you get an extra 
    hero.
    
    
    Main Quest 1
    ------------
    You need to take the airbases to prevent the constant attacks from the air by 
    the enemy.  You will need to build up you base and defend against the enemy who 
    will drop cargo dirigibles full of troops in the middle of your city.  Once you 
    have a good base established you should use air destroyers to remove the gun 
    turrets from the cliffs.  You can then freely attack the base from the north 
    east of the map. You should be able to build a steam factory when you take out 
    the mine from which you can create several juggernauts or cannons to pound the 
    city and defeat the enemy.  Once defeated the general will then be removed from 
    the strategic map.
    
    Side Quest 1
    ------------
    The mine is located in the east of the map and is guarded by several troops and 
    a gun turret.  Destroying the door will free the prisoners and you will gain 
    several troops including Battaglion, a new hero.  
    
    Side Quest 2
    ------------
    The three airbases are situated to the east and north of the base.  As you take 
    each base the enemy will try to take them back.  The base that is most 
    important is the one to the east.  This will change hands several times during 
    the mission.

    1) Find The Master
    
    You have to pick 3 heroes to use on this mission.  You have to choose Giacomo 
    but have a choice of the remaining 2.  I would recommend Distruzio because of 
    his attack and healing grenades and you get an extra unit.  Lenora is also 
    useful because of her shameless piracy skill.  You don't get any extra units so 
    take your time and heal when you can.  Once inside the prison you have around 
    12 minutes to complete the level which is probably more than enough.  
    
    The enemy numbers are fixed so you won't have to worry about more enemies 
    spawning.

    Start: Giacomo, 2 Imperial Musketeers (+ your other army units purchased)
    
    Main Quests
    -----------
    1) Storm The Bridge
    2) Capture Ranconi (+2 exp)
    
    Side Quests
    -----------
    1) Capture The Observatory
    
    This mission can be quite difficult if you storm the town too early.  Once you 
    have captured the town the enemy sends demolition trucks to destroy the bridge 
    and if you can't destroy them you lose the level.  The best approach to this 
    level is build the town up and call as many of your heroes as you see fit.  
    Air units are good because of the limited width of the bridge when you have to 
    cross to the other side.  When you have made it over destroy the buildings and 
    then take the city.  
    
    Main Quest 1
    ------------
    The first task will be complete once the city to the east of you starting point 
    has been taken. I would recommend building your town to its maximum and 
    defending then taking the enemy city.  You have to be quick then to prevent the 
    enemy blowing the bridge and losing the level.  
    
    Main Quest 2
    ------------
    When you trigger this mission you have three objectives:
    
    * Don't let the bridge be destroyed
    * Destroy the steam factory
    * Capture the city
    
    Destroy the trucks generated by the steam factory then the steam factory.  You 
    can then concentrate on destroying the enemy city.  
    
    Side Quest 1
    ------------
    Not really to difficult if you capture the town just attack and capture the 
    telescope to complete this objective.  
    
    
    ================================================================================
    ************************ Venucci - The Plains Of Venucci ***********************
    ================================================================================
    
    Start: Giacomo, 2 Imperial Musketeers (+ your other army units purchased)
    
    Main Quests
    -----------
    1) Fall Of Venucci (+1 experience)
    2) The Hammer
    
    Side Quests
    -----------
    1) Ammo Depots (+1 experience)
    2) Fire The Hammer
    3) Land Leviathan
    4) Repair Leviathan
    
    This is a take the city scenario with plenty going on to keep you busy.  You 
    want to head north and east and destroy the ammo deposits as soon as possible.  
    These are guarded but you should have a decent enough starting army to do 
    this.  Meanwhile build the base defence and prepare to be battered by the 
    "hammer".  When you have destroyed the depots you'll want to build up your 
    forces and head to the hammer and take that out.  Your next task would be to 
    find and defeat the leviathan, which you can then augment and it will become a 
    useful weapon.  
    
    The next task is to use the hammer on the reinforcements that appear to the 
    east, poison should take care of them.  Once all these tasks are done you'll 
    only need to take the enemy city to beat the mission and end the campaign.  
    
    
    Main Quest 1
    ------------
    Simply storm the city to complete this quest.
    
    Main Quest 2
    ------------
    Capture the hammer like you would any other building, it can't fight back but 
    may be guarded by the leviathan.  
    
    Side Quest 1
    ------------
    Destroying these two ammo depots will save you being the recipient of some 
    hardcore bombing action from the hammer.  You'll find they blow up when 
    captured and are guarded by two juggernauts and several soldier units.  
    
    Side Quest 2
    ------------
    Firing the hammer will be activated when the hammer is captured.  The Doge will 
    bring in reinforcements in the northwest of the map.  The hammer has 3 
    different shells which you can use.  Choose the poison to kill them.  It make 
    take a few shots.  The telescope is good here for locating the target.  
    
    Side Quest 3
    ------------
    The land leviathan is the same boss as the scavenger boss from earlier in the 
    game.  However, once defeated you can repair it and use it on your side.
    
    Side Quest 4
    ------------
    To repair the leviathan you simply use the augmentation skill of Giacomo.

    Below are the starting values of each section of the map.  Your path is linear 
    until you finish mission 2, Azar Haraf, then you can make your own way around 
    the map and choose what missions to take on.  Each location on the map has a 
    unique mission.  Once the unique mission has been complete you take control of 
    that location.  If you lose a location you can take it back but you won't have 
    to do the unique mission again.  You will instead have to complete a generic, 
    take all the cities level.  These will only yield experience points for you 
    heroes.
    
    Below are the starting values and bonuses each location gives.

    Building Cities
    ---------------
    When you take a location you can use wealth to build up the cities in these 
    locations in the same way you do in a mission.  
    
    * Military District (cost 1 wealth)
      - Awards 1 army point after construction.
      - Raises population limit at start of scenario.
      - Sends reinforcements to scenarios in adjacent territories.
    
    * Magus District (cost 1 wealth)
      - Awards 1 magic the turn after construction.
    
    * Merchant District (cost 1 wealth)
      - Generates 1 wealth per turn.
      - Sends caravans containing wealth to scenarios in adjacent territories.
    
    * Palace District (cost 6 wealth)
      - Upgrades a city to a large city, a large city to a great city.
      - Generates 1 point of wealth, magic and army per turn
      - 3 non palace districts are required for each palace district
    
    The price of districts increases by 1 for each district that already exists so 
    to create a palace district will cost you (1+2+3) 6 for the districts and 6 for 
    the palace, 12 in total.  Additional palace district costs 10 points.  
    Districts under attack from enemy generals cost more to place so beware.
    
    Early on the game I would suggest building merchant districts to generate 
    wealth to expand and defend your lands.  
    
    You only need to build military districts on the edge of you territory where 
    the enemy is most likely to attack.  One military district will hold off an 
    attacking army for one turn so work out if you can save a location 
    before moving.  You only have 1 free move and 1 attack per turn so watch where 
    the enemy moves and plan your attacks and defence accordingly.  
    
    Magus units are useful because the points provided help you research new 
    troops and upgrades to use in battle.  
    
    Campaign Goals
    --------------
    You have two campaign goals on the map each will give you a key when 
    completed.  When you have 2 keys a new location, Mezekesh, will appear which 
    is the last mission in the campaign.  
    
    There are 3 enemy genies to contend with on the map, defeating a Genie will 
    eliminate him from the game for a couple of turns.  They will then respawn in 
    an enemy controlled land.  
    
    
    ================================================================================
    {                                                                              }
    {                                3.2 - Heroes                                  }
    {                                                                              }
    ================================================================================
    
    You have the chance to upgrade each hero you meet with experience points gained 
    in missions (and on strategic map).  It assumes you haven't upgraded any hero 
    values.  The points needed are shown below:

    The mission section offers notes on the quests and what you need to do to 
    trigger or complete them.  
    
    Some general advice on scenario's:
    
    * Build circles of sand\fire and glass a soon as possible.
    
    * When you have a big starting army you can sometimes rush the enemy and win 
      scenarios much easier.

    From the start you need to head west then south over the bridge.  Destroy the 
    guardians and circles of sand to capture the relic.  Acerbus will then join you.
    
    Main Quest 2
    ------------
    Follow Acerbus to the south west of the map defeating two Alin armies that 
    spawn on the way.  You can also destroy some more circles of sand on the way.  
    
    Main Quest 3
    ------------
    Acerbus will change into Marwan.  You don't need to actually attack him at this 
    point because Arri will turn up and defeat him for you.  
    
    Side Quest 1
    ------------
    Destroy the circles on the way through the main tasks the others are just to 
    the north of Marwan by oasis.  There's no experience for this so you don't need 
    to complete this mission.

    You need to defeat the attackers, including Marwan to beat this quest.
    
    Main Quest 2
    ------------
    You need to capture a trading post, build a sand spire and build a circle of 
    sand to complete the quest.
    
    Main Quest 3
    ------------
    You need to destroy the 5 sand spires that will constantly attack you.  
    Basically, build and defend then attack and destroy each spire.  The Floating 
    city is useful in this quest.
    
    Side Quest 1
    ------------
    The floating city moves around the map, you can capture it like any other city.
    It then provides several bonus attacks which help in the main quest of 
    destroying the spires.
    
    Side Quest 2
    ------------
    You can attack his small settlement in the north of the map but he'll also be 
    attacked by Alin so you shouldn't need to worry too much about this quest.  It 
    doesnít carry any experience so avoid if you don't fancy it.

    Main Quest 1
    ------------
    You have a small amount of daylight time to build up your defences ready for 
    the nighttime attack of the salamanders.  I would build just 2 miners and 
    concentrate the rest of the creation of troops to defend.  Reach daylight to 
    win this quest.
    
    Main Quest 2
    ------------
    The salamanders will retreat in the daylight so use this time to fortify 
    defences and build more mines.  Glass fortresses are very useful in defending 
    the vital entry to the city and more importantly your mines.  Create troops to 
    defend and attack each of the three lairs.  Probably best to take out the one 
    in the west first and return before nightfall.  Attrition at night is a killer 
    so stay in the city boundaries.  The day night routine continues until all 
    salamanders queens are defeated.  The final part of the mission is to kill 
    all remaining salamanders who won't respawn once the queens are dead.  
    
    Side Quest 1
    ------------
    You basically need to complete a great city before the end of the first period 
    of sunlight.  Build mines and miners to help get as much Timonium as possible.  
    It isn't worth any experience but is useful for expanding your research and 
    more importantly you gain control of Belisari, another hero who is then 
    available in future missions.

    The city has some defenders, you shouldn't have any trouble taking the city 
    though.  
    
    Main Quest 3
    ------------
    This can be quite difficult, basically just build up troops and defeat the 
    enemies as they appear.  You will need to defeat the 3 genies to complete this 
    part of the mission and not lose the city.  
    
    Side Quest 1
    ------------
    This mission is easy enough to complete so long as you collect the relics on 
    the way to the city.  Diztruzio's Zeke is useful here in his scout form to 
    collect them if you are defending the city.

    balance building city with troops to prevent you from being overrun.  If the 
    Oasis falls you will lose the mission.
    
    Side Quest 1
    ------------
    The camps are in the NE, SW and NW of the map.  If you capture them then they 
    will provide some initial troops and unlimited free troops which spawn over 
    time.  These are difficult to acquire because of the cost of the sites.  You 
    might need to use the diplomacy to send money to and from each hero.  Also, 
    using Pulitore's calculator to turn Timonium into wealth is useful.

    fall so don't spend too much in trying to defend it.  Instead build up an army 
    and defend your base from the volcanic creatures that attack constantly through

    city and the flying troops to free the dragons.  There are several enemies on 
    route and guarding the dragons.  Once freed they will join you.  
    
    You then need to build up a very strong attack force and take the Alin city in 
    the north of the map.  It is heavily defended by glass citadels which you 
    should destroy to make the quest easier.  The base will constantly attack you 
    whilst you build your army and city.

    This is a defeat the enemy with a slight twist in that the map is split by a

    several armies in control groups to defend constant attacks then use boxes and 
    flying units to take a city of the other side.  You then need to take out the

    Main Quest 1
    ------------
    First take the city near to where you start and build it up.  You need to 
    capture the sand citadel that Dakhla is guarding and ensure that the dark Alin 
    do not do it first.  Basically you'll want to take out the dark Alin first (one 
    of the side quests) then concentrate on defeating Dakhla. Once the dark Alin 
    are out of the way then this is fairly easy to achieve.  You'll probably want 
    to take out his treasures to help you (side quest).  This gives you the key of 
    sand.
    
    Side Quest 1
    ------------
    To defeat the dark Alin you need to do the following:
    
    - capture the dark Alin city
    - destroy the glass citadel
    - destroy all the dark spires (3)
    
    Two of the dark spires and glass citadel are just to the east of your city.  
    They defend some oasis so take a decent force and take these out.  The final 
    spire and city is in the north of the map.  With a decent force you should take 
    this out easily.  
    
    Side Quest 2

    It's easier to take out the treasure area but this is best left until the Alin 
    have been dealt with.  The treasure is in the south of the map.

    You need to defeat the 5 dark glass lairs on the map.  To make things more 
    difficult Andromolek will attack constantly and so will the glass lairs.  
    You'll want to take out the one's nearest to the base first then defend and 
    build you city.  Take the city to the west and defend it because the enemy will 
    take it if you leave it undefended.  You'll want to do the side quests before 
    advancing any further.  Once the side quests are complete, take the other 
    cities and work you way to the main Alin city and take that out.  The final two 
    citadels will then be a piece of cake.
    
    You will get Andromolek as a hero to use in future missions when you complete

    Side Quest 2
    ------------
    He'll ask you to bring a salamander to him and capture a salamander nest.  You 
    can create a salamander at your base for the first or get one from the 
    salamander nest to the east of your starting city.  Beware though, if you 
    capture the salamander base before triggering this quest then you'll have to 
    hope the enemy recaptures it then take it back to complete this quest.  This is 
    a glitch in the game.
    
    Side Quest 3

    and your defences.  The enemy will send dark wind transports to take her away 
    which can be easily destroyed.  They enter randomly on the map so split the 
    defence forces into control groups to make it easier to destroy them when they 
    appear.  You then can launch a rescue taking out all the enemies that guard 
    Damanhur.  Once you've done this you have a new hero for this and subsequent

    The enemy will constantly attack you whilst you build so prepare to defend

    this.  You now have the key of fire, one of the two keys needed to unlock the

    ------------
    This is quite tough as you would expect.  I would use the army to scout the map 
    outside the tunnels first and defeat a small Doge army in the east, saves doing 
    it later in the mission.  You then enter the tunnels and work your way around 
    them until you get to Sawu.  You'll encounter enemy on the way which you should 
    kill and heal as you go.  there are several oasis you can capture to help your 
    healing.  There are also prisoners trapped in glass you can free to supplement 
    your army.  On the way there are several sub bosses to fight:
    
    - Elder Glass Golem - very tough boss who splits in two lesser golems
    - Bazek, Spider queen is also very tough
    
    To beat these make sure you always keep your powers at maximum as you move 
    through the tunnels by just waiting until they recover.  You should also do 
    this with Sawu.  
    
    When you get to Sawu you'll want to defeat the citadels guarding the entrance 
    and the other enemies then retreat from Sawu.  When your at full health and 
    powers take him on with all you have.  He will summon a huge dragon that you 
    should kill.  Try to release the trapped prisoners in glass with clockwork 
    men.  He will also encase your men in glass which you will need to free to use 
    them.  Eventually he will be defeated and join you.

    After the cutscene retreat into the mine and fully heal and replenish powers.  
    Then exit the mine and defeat the Doge, Lenora and a group of pirata will join 
    you at this point.  When he is dead, heal back up and replenish powers then 
    head towards the hammer in the east of the map.  There is an oasis that is 
    useful to capture so you can heal before moving onto the hammer.  The hammer 
    can only attack if you are in its range or if you are fighting enemies.  There 
    are a lot of enemies guarding the hammer so defeat them slowly and draw them 
    back to the oasis to make it easier.  Lenora's piracy skill is useful to 
    capture extra troops.  Finally when you have defeated the guards take out the

    Below are the starting values of each section of the map.  Your path is linear 
    until you finish mission 2, Chumuk, then you can make your own way around the 
    map and choose what missions to take on.  Each location on the map has a unique 
    mission.  Once the unique mission has been complete you take control of that 
    location.  If you lose a location you can take it back but you won't have to do 
    the unique mission again.  You will instead have to complete a generic, take 
    all the cities level.  These will only yield experience points for you heroes.
    
    Below are the starting values and bonuses each location gives.

    Building Cities
    ---------------
    When you take a location you can use wealth to build up the cities in these 
    locations in the same way you do in a mission.  
    
    * Military District (cost 1 wealth)
      - Defends against enemy attacks
    
    * Holy District (cost 1 wealth)
      - Awards 1 technology the turn after construction.
    
    * Reactor District (cost 1 wealth)
      - Generates 1 wealth per turn.
    
    * Palace District (cost 6 wealth)
      - Upgrades a city to a large city, a large city to a great city.
      - Generates 1 point of power, technology and army per turn
      - 3 non palace districts are required for each palace district
    
    The price of districts increases by 1 for each district that already exists so 
    to create a palace district will cost you (1+2+3) 6 for the districts and 6 for 
    the palace, 12 in total.  Additional palace district costs 10 points.  
    Districts under attack from enemy generals cost more to place so beware.
    
    Early on the game I would suggest building reactor districts to generate wealth 
    to expand and defend your lands.  
    
    You only need to build military districts on the edge of you territory where 
    the enemy is most likely to attack.  One military district will hold off an 
    attacking army for one turn so work out if you can save a location 
    before moving.  You only have 1 free move and 1 attack per turn so watch where 
    the enemy moves and plan your attacks and defence accordingly.  
    
    Reactor districts are useful because the points provided help you research new 
    troops and also upgrades troops to use in battles.  
    
    Campaign Goals
    --------------
    You have three campaign goals on the map:
    
    - Tecuhtli (Xil - the sun god)
    - Teomqui (Shok - goddess of storm)
    - Kahal (Czin, god of death)
    
    There are 3 enemy generals to contend with on the map.  Capturing the campaign 
    goals will remove the general from the map according to their capital.  You'll 
    want to take out Xil and Shock as quickly as possible to concentrate on 
    building your cities and taking on Czin.

    After the first mission you need to decide which factions heroes to use in this 
    campaign, Venucci or Alin.  I'll list them both.  You get Giacomo but will have 
    to rebuild his stats because his powers have changed.  It assumes you haven't 
    upgraded any hero values.

    The Cuotl missions are very hard to beat as you would expect being the final 
    campaign.  If you have spent a lot of time on building up Venuci heroes then 
    it's probably best to take them into the final mission because they will be 
    more experienced.  Iím playing through with the Vinci but may replay with Alin 
    to see if it is any easier.

    Yontash will join you at this point.  You need to manage both bases building 
    and defending.  Then take out the enemy sites dotted around the roads on the 
    map.  Don't forget to defend your bases when doing this though.  When you've 
    cleaned them all out head to the temple with a hefty army and assault it to 
    complete the mission.

    impossible if you do this quest as soon as possible.  Instead build up a great 
    city, summon all your heroes, then complete the mission.  I would leave the 
    subdue part until last to allow you to create a massive army.  
    
    Main Quest 2
    ------------
    With your mass army simply march north and take all the cities.  You should do 
    this easily with the mass force.

    This map is split into 5 land masses, 4 in each corner and a large strip along 
    the centre.  Your base is in the south west and the enemy in the north east.  
    You'll need to use fane's to move your troops off to get to the enemies base, 
    flying units are a bonus too.  There is a Pantheon in the centre of the map 
    that allows you to create Kuls Fighter Bombers.  Other than that this is the 
    standard defeat the enemy map.  Build, defend and attack.

    This is probably the toughest map in the game.  I wouldn't even think of

    1) Defend Shipments
    
    
    Main Quest 1
    ------------
    The map is split into two sides with a big ravine across the centre.  The only 
    way to cross is two bridges or flying (you can use a fane too).  
    
    The start of this is very difficult if you are doing the shipments.  You need 
    to concentrate on creating the two flying heroes and 3-4 fighters. You must 
    also maintain a good ground army to fight off the attacks from the enemy.  They 
    will head for you main city across two bridges, mainly the left but the right 
    later in the mission.  There are a few shrines dotted around to make your side 
    of the divide safe.  If you complete the side quest the attacks seem to subside 
    a little so try and guard the bridges and kill anything that tries to cross.  
    When you have a big enough army defending both sides push on and take the 
    enemies cities.
    
    Side Quest 1
    ------------
    You need to defend seven shipments that will randomly appear on either the east 
    or west of the map.  They are impossible to defend without flying units so 
    you'll need to construct a temple as soon as the level starts.  You should be 
    able to save enough manna to call 2 flying heroes.  If you have researched 
    Venza's advanced flyer she is perfect as she will last 3-4 times longer than 
    several quetzal fighters and is cheaper.  Lenora is good as a second hero 
    because she can use her piracy skill to convert flying enemies to aid you.  
    
    if you complete this quest you are awarded the city of vengeance.  A massive 
    floating city with the following:
    
    - 2600 Health
    - Transport Capacity Of 25
    - Gravity Wave (a crippling wave of shocking force destroys all in its path)
    - Reintegrate (fully repairs the city of vengeance)
    - Disrupt (fiery beam heats brick to melting point, doing tremendous damage to 
               one target building)
    - Good attack and siege values
    
    You can only use the powers if you have a great City!

    Xil will attack you eventually so just build and defend from the start.  If you 
    are doing the mission with his army not on this mission of the map then he will 
    not resurrect.  Trying to win this mission with him on the map is extremely 
    difficult.  Once you have the eye, work your way east and take his capital.

    The capital is in the north west of the map, although the side missions don't 
    yield anything its essential you take out the other cities before the capital.  
    The city to the east is the one to take first.  Once you have it you'll find it 
    is easy to defend because it is surrounded by mountains.  You can then 
    concentrate on taking out the other two cities.  With these out the way the 
    final city is a piece of cake.

    - Capture one of four sanctuaries
    You can take any of the four sanctuaries, one tip here is before doing this 
    just wait for lots of re-enforcements to arrive until they stop coming then 
    take the sanctuary in the south east.  
    
    Main Quest 2
    ------------
    - Capture the Cuotl City
    The city is in the centre of the map and should only be attempted with a large 
    army.  Taking outposts increases your population cap plus gives research points.
    You can't build a city only soldiers so spend you money on heroes and strong 
    troops.  When you have taken all four sanctuaries you can attack the main city.
    
    
    Side Quest 1
    ------------
    There are 12 groups of hidden fallen around the map.  Simply find them and they 
    will join you.  
    
    Side Quest 2
    ------------
    Raid 3 Cuotl caravans to achieve this mission.  They seem to travel to and from 
    the outposts.  You can also take them out when they gather in the main city.
    
    Side Quest 3
    ------------
    You need to capture and hold all 4 sanctuaries.  To achieve this you'll need 
    all of your heroes and split them and your ground troops to guard each 
    sanctuary once you have taken them.

    Main Quest 1
    ------------
    - Destroy the first power node set
    - Destroy the second power node set
    - Destroy the third power node set
    
    There is a 30 minute timer but you'll do it way before then.  You need to use 
    your two armies and take out the power nodes and any other enemy structures or 
    enemies on the map.  You can't get into the middle yet so just worry about the 
    outer part of the map.  By the start of each group you can create extra troops, 
    each group has it's own funds and they can be sent to each other using 
    the alliance if needed.  Just take your time here slowly moving and conquering 
    the map.  You'll have more than enough troops to beat anything the enemy throws 
    at you.  When you destroy the last node the centre opens up and you'll take 
    control of Giacomo and a group of troops to finish Czin off.  
    
    
    Main Quest 2
    ------------
    - Destroy Czin, the death god
    - Giacomo must survive
    
    Giacomo
    1 Death Spider
    1 Elite Sun cannon
    2 Elite Sun Idol
    1 Elite Storm Disk
    1 Eagle Bomber
    1 4 Hybrid Clockwork Man
    2 Elite Sun Jaguar
    2 Defenders
    
    You need to make your way slowly towards Czin taking out any enemies in your 
    path.  Then kill Czin and watch the end cutscene.  Seems pointless to award 
    experience here because you can't use it but hey ho.
