Quite boring overall
While the game mechanics are good and the abilities are interesting, I can beat any map without any serious competition, regardless of the settings. I just attack everybody I see and then win. The story mode was nice but very short and with very limited building options - nothing like playing HMM6 for example. I am done with it, pretty sad about it though.

I heard about that. Gotta be Kingdoms to open up the shadow world portal? Or is just a spell you find?

Heh.. I should open a new topic. I did, Copied this to there

Its in one of the random branches of "Cave" quest. Usualy from Quest Scrolls bought from Altar. I say usualy because I think it might be Level dependant. You could get it from a Quest Hut but they are usualy all cleaned from the world by the time your Level'd up. My current crews on Quest Scrolls are all above L'10.

Its in one of the random branches of "Cave" quest;
The "Cave" quest comes directly or from one of the Inn quests indirectly and has many random branches ..fissure, crevice ..etc.
Quest text mentions 'big hole' - 'something fell' - 'giant gets up says gate/portal will not hold'. A fight starts, win and spell is added to spell book.

Usualy from Quest Scrolls bought from Altar;
Altar, once level'd enough or Building built, not sure which, has Scrolls in the store on any of thier proporties. Just like Queen'P has Magic books you can buy for the magic spells.

Or; There is a faction trait you can get for your custom faction that adds in same Quest Scrolls. It also gives one the skill of +1 prestigue and +20 influence for quest completion, I think. The Scrolls and Skill might be separate. Its been awile since I looked. Come to think of it. Ya, they are separate as I was "keeping Altar alive" to get the scrolls and then getting bonus from doing them.
I created a couple of factions with Scrolls and found its not worth it, takes up ability slot and I still have to buy them. ..but now have multiple Factions with scrolls and I get the bonus skill.

Shadow World Portal is a spell that shows up in World page of spell book.

Before you open one; find a space with room around it, add some roads for access around it. I usualy add 2 then 3. The monsters spawn every few(maybe random) turns.
Spell maitenance _5_ each.
Two differant armies spawn, randomly. Both are Epic, one I think must be double Epic. Each gives great XP.

I didn't want to spoil the surprise.

Collecting the "chest" after just kills portal, you get nothing. Stepping on portal directly kills it. Chasing demons and "landing on portal" indirectly does not.

The spell use to show up on R-Tree randomly (25% chance) as well. Use to.

wew..

It's a portal to Hell.

Demons spawn through it. Pretty crazy. I haven't seen it yet. But I don't play Altar.

You don't need to be Altar.. anyone can get it.

Any "Cave quest" could have it. I suspect many have gotten it but not looked at thier Spell Book "World" tab.

Anyone can buy "Quest Map" scrolls from Altar or Magic Books from Queen'P. You just need to visit thier property and shop in thier store.

OR buy differant armour and Weapons.

Or buy other scrolls once the Conclaves are up to certain levels. Like a scroll to summon Air Elemental, Scroll Scribe building from a Level pop.
