    Quick report #2 bout new units 'n' stuff. So, new units fit in well. Especially banishers. Hydromancers where great with that accelerting spell, but now I have to replace them with necromancers. I've always felt like necromancers are garbage(yes I said that), but now unholy frenzy is the only way you buff your units, considering there is no inner fire or acceleration anymore. Darksteel golems, tho. Are their stats higher than regular golems'? I think they are. Their "natural" HP regen is 0.25( if i calculated it right), but I feel like you could just remove the autorepair upgrage, and give them natural HP regen of 3, or maybe 2.5. Not much to say about paladins, they are just a great addition.

    The recruits aren't a massive part of his army( i think) so it isn't that fatal that they aren't experienced.

    The Golden Guard who enter the continent through portals can resupply them. Maybe not the way the empire can, but every aid will help massively in the war effort.

    Are you forgetting the Dwarven tunnels? What else besides dwarves and vermins resides under the surface?Yup you guess right,minerals a shit ton of them.

    They are not trying to fight a attrition war...They just wanna blast the demon heartland and be done with it.So more minerals>more war machinery.

    Yes, but while Gardon has the Kingdoms, Elves and Dragons supplying new forces, the Golden Guard doesn't, only if we count the Dwarves.

    If Gardon keeps being as smart as he has been, his next move will be, most likely, defeating the Dwarves and gaining their advanced technology and minerals to supply his troops.

    And since both the orcs and Progaderas' forces weakened the Dwarves, they will be easier to defeat if Gardon sends a massive force.

    Don't worry man. I troubled times where the Golden Guard are surrounded and out of supplies they can rely on Portal ex machina to fix everything. :D

    @LISBOAH

    I think Shar mentioned that with the menace done below the surface,Dwarves regrouped and now are way more stronger that the dwarves we got to play.

    Having to split your forces in half when you are dealing with a dangerous foe such as GG and Van Durce takes alot of guts including here Gardon and his boys aren't really familiar with the heartland of the dwarves(i would assume).Its not like he is going to invaide the dwarves with just one detachment of IF.

    And go where?

    Yes, but Gardon has more forces to and he can overwhelm the Dwarves. If the Dwarves are defeated, the Golden Guard will be easier to defeat and will lose their only ally in the continent.

    And about the matter of the tunnels...I don't think the Dwarves have proper security against Lord Brian's shadow warriors. They can scout the area without being noticed, warn Gardon's forces and then they can come up with a strategy to beat the Dwarves...

    Not to mention the Dragons...

    They want to transport troops from the continent of the human empire to the continent of Arkain. Don't ask me how this will work out, it's just their plan.

    Numbers dont mean much in a well defended position inside the tunnels.
    The only reason why Dwarves were in such a shitty situation to begin with was cuz the majority of their forces were ouccupied holding the front vs the demons and other threats(what i managed to piece through from Zarin and Holy Bastion dialogue i might be wrong here)

    Also Shar did mention that dwarven numbers were quite high so i assume they do have some sort of manpower to help both the Golden Guard and defend their heartlands.

    On the Shadows part yeah i do agree however maybe the alliance might help them in that regard.(Also from i have been able to theory-craft their numbers seem rather limited,Lord Brian gave us control of them for just a short period of time and then took it back again,ofc this could just be Shar making stuff difficult as always.)

    Dragons are no good in tunnels,i think :p, BUT you never know,maybe this Blake dragons do have some retarted wingless snake like breed they can use in tunnels.

    They can shapeshift into humans if they want. Thanok is an example.

    I think this is for difficulty reasons. The fallen mage guild had no shades so if we kept the shadow stalkers we would have taken them out way, way too easily.

    Remember that neither Golden Guard and Dwarves are aware of the existence of these shadow warriors. Why? Because we killed every single man that faced them. And even if there were survivors, these men served the undead so...

    So they are totally not prepared!

    Since Gardon met with these dragons at least twice in caves, they might have some experience in walking in tunnels..

    @Championfighter25 Still shapeshifting into humans beats the reason of using Dragons in the first place.

    @LISBOAH You're accually right...I forgot we squashed them back to oblivion.
    Still a Dragons greatest asset its his mobility,i think him walking on four an breathing fire inside a tunnel even tho sounds good still is not as good as smashing gryphon riders and pegasuses and arial machineries on the skies.

    They shapeshift into humans and then shapeshift back into their original form. it's just a way to deceive the enemy of their true identity.
    They can be effective in tunnels, at least the small to medium ones. I can't imagine the big ones even fitting in there.

    Merry Christmas, happy holidays, happy Sanguinala
    yes that's a thing I'm not kiddin'.
    Thank you to all the people who have stuck with us and I certainly hope you have enjoyed playing the series. We are nearing the end of the Second Human Book and I'd like to think we can still surprise you with so few levels remaining. Heading into the new year will certainly be interesting and will no doubt provide its own set of challenges but we will see this through.

    Have a good day and enjoy the new year as it comes.
    timezones my eternal enemy

    But one more thing, thank you Shar.
    *pass out*

    Yes is. I think you meant when will the second book be finished?
    There won't be an exact release date. He tries to work on the chapters whenever he can.

    in chapter 5 we can still research necromancer's master training in arcane sanctum of our ally even if necromancers are not available for them
