Dungeons And Devils

Dungeons and Devils is the evil campaign in Restoration of Erathia. It sees the dungeon overlords of Nighon joining forces with the Kreegans of Eeofol to take over Steadwick, Erathia's capitol city.

In an earlier post, I mentioned that the campaign takes place before Long Live The Queen. However, I noticed that in one of the cutscenes, the narrator mentions Enrothian warships landing at the continent's southern coast. This suggests the evil campaign takes places roughly around the same time as the good campaign.

Unlike the good campaign, you're given a choice between two starting scenarios. Regardless of which one you pick, you'll have to do the other later.

In A Devilish Plan, the Kreegans launch a preemptive strike on Erathia's closest ally, the elves of AvLee, by slaying the Gold Dragon Queen. I'm not sure why the creature resides south of Eeofol instead of AvLee itself. But I suppose the AvLee region isn't very hilly.

The other option is Groundbreaking, which sees the dungeon overlords sneaking into Erathia through a network of secret underground tunnels. The Nighon forces appear to have developed this strategy by watching Bugs Bunny cartoons.

In the third scenario, you'll have the opportunity to pick one of the earlier teams to lead the final attack.

The last thing I'll say before jumping in to the campaign is that I find the evil narrator oddly endearing. He doesn't have that muffled, demonic, Darth Vader voice usually reserved for demons. In fact, his voice most closely resembles the Old Spice guy? Also, he refers to the Nighon and Eeofol forces in a way that suggests he's not allied with either faction. Who is this mysterious man?
