Deal With The Devil

In Deal With the Devil, Queen Catherine discovers that Roland Ironfist is being held by the Kreegans in the city of Kleesive. Catherine sends her army into Eeofol to rescue her husband.

Kleesive can be found within a volcanic circle at the map's eastern edge, guarded by nasty arch-devils and a special hero called Clan Leader. Once Kleesive falls, the scenario ends.

Here, we get our first and only look at the corrupt lands of Eeofol. Sure enough, it's a nasty and grim volcanic land. The Kreegans thoroughly terraformed the peaceful land of the halflings into something you'd see in Dante's Inferno. If Eeofol had a fantasy counterpart, it would be Mordor from Middle Earth.

Team Catherine doesn't spend a lot of time in Eeofol, however. The goal is just to rescue Roland, not to invade the entire nation. Thus, with Eeofol's invasion of Erathia ended, the story immediately pulls back and refocuses on the necromancers of Deyja.

Later, in the Armageddon's Blade expansion, we get a more thorough look at Eeofol. But I'll write more about that part of the story after I finish Restoration of Erathia.
