Beginning log

After making their way through the Dark Forest, Leonster stood before the Liberation Army at last. However, even the lightly guarded southern gate was defended by high cliffs and numerous ballistae. Breaching the gate was not going to be an easy task.

  • Note: If Leif visits one of the houses, the player will be given the choice to either accept the villagers' help, or to rely on their own strength.

If the player accepts the villagers' help, NPCs will spawn from the houses on the turns after Leif visited.
The number of NPCs that spawns per turn will vary, an NPC will not spawn if a unit is standing on top of the designated house.
