    Chapter 3 isn't as hard, since you have Gardon with his beneficial auras, as well as cora....in this chapter you start off with no heroes...

    I already told you a strategy on how to deal with them.All you need is to make sure to use your spellcasters spells properly.

    Not to mention blue uses its acolytes to defend its base..... plus I've been wondering @Shar, about the final chapter in the First Human Book... what the hell is the use of the Red Human base there? is it there just to sit around and be cute? XD

    If aedale gets corrupted by that point, she and a host of her demons appear at that base and fight for your side

    The chapter was easy, the only reason it took so long was because we had to find out what was causing the crashtodesktop.exe used by the vengeful deathlords.

    We might need to have more missions without a hero if you're all having this much trouble.

    Edit: NEWS FROM THE PEACEKEEPERS AGENTS,
    I've just been informed more chapters without hero support have been planned.

    It took me a great deal of time to finish chapter 4, Damnit!
    the guards on the first group of trebuchets are a pain in the neck
    I still dont understand when can the enemy see my shadows lol
    After I attacked the first line of defenders, the others saw me and kicked my ass lol
    My strategy first was to get rid of the blue undead base then attacked the city and it worked
    You cant attack in full force, you have to win through attrition and guerrilla tactics
    About the mayor and his guards, holy crap Shar why did you have all those units around him??, when I try to lure a few of them to my forces, instead I got the whole army on me and my forces are destroyed lol
    The game crashed twice I think when I was attacking the final base "Magee Guild", that was a few days ago dont remember exactly when it crashed but at the third time it worked well
    I just noticed there's a new version you said that the trebuchets defenders have been reduced a little :3

    Overall, the missions are AWESOME and Lord Brian is a badass!

    So currently playing the lovely no-hero chapter there is one thing worth noting, Trebuchet's cannot attack buildings I am unsure if this is intended as I can use attack ground to just destroy buildings anyway.

    Chapter 4 - Clicking on the Ark buildings unlocks the power of the sun to obliterate your enemies iris's

    This is all for now :p

    I guess some hints for chapter 5 could help. Note this may include spoiler, it is better to play for yourself and feel the accomplishment of overcoming this obstacle.

    Consider sacrificing your early units for a more numbered army or so you can gather gold quicker, you start above the "No upkeep" limit of 50. I did this to upgrade the 3/3 and spellcaster upgrades quicker.

    Immediately kill the Blue undead base, its harassment slows you down and its extra goldmine is useful.

    !IMPORTANT! Truesight range is extended viscously, use it to find shades (Yes there ARE a lot of shades look for them!) with your scout towers allowing you to get your invisible units in further.

    Snow can be built upon for towers.

    Build towers for your later defence of the trebuchet's, also make Guard Towers in case gargoyles attack.

    Know when to retreat, you don't have heroes to back you up. Make tower checkpoints so you always have positions to fall back on. (E.g. the only exits from the city make amazing chokepoints)

    More Hints/Edit: You don't need to be the melee backbone, Your ally can provide that. For most of the attacks I was actually just making priests, hydromancers and Necromancers to support allies (Frost Shield, Inner Fire, Healing, Slowing the enemy, Crushing Wave burst etc...) Grey wolves also provide +3 armor aura, This totals to a whopping +13 armor!

    Upon entering the city focus on killing the first orange right hand base first over the rohir nexus to the left, the Rohir nexus is much less aggressive and brown will tend to focus the right base first. Edit: The right path is blocked
