Horseback
Horseback Map.jpg
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.

Description

A great map with rather high XP to losses.

Blocking is a major help in minimising losses for good XP gain on this map. For more info, see Blocking Tutorial.

To win this adventure, you should defeat all camps. However seeing this adventure also has a Camp Leader, defeating the Leader will automatically defeat all other bandit camps also.
