The people of the great veldt seek your assistance. One of the rider clans has started terrorising the settlers in this region, taking their belongings and steal their flocks. If no-one helps them they will have to leave their homeland. The local population doesn`t possess much, but they are willing to offer their most precious heirloom to anyone who can drive the rider clan away.

A great map with rather high XP to losses.

Blocking is a major help in minimising losses for good XP gain on this map.

Blocking is a technique for attacking 1 camp with a single general and soldier to allow a second General to attack the intended target and avoid the first camps area of effect.

Better maps and image of this adventure will be supplied when i next tackle it.
