The Story So Far...
Well, links to it. Click the links below to see the story/maps in order so far in case you missed any:
Now that the heroes have thwarted the demons at almost every point, hell, undefeated, and undeterred, makes the climb to assault heaven. (The second time, for those who accept Christian eschatology.)
How This Map Works
This is a lord fest. The map has six sections. One is Earth, and the demons don’t go there at all. They are bypassing Earth on their way to the sky. The other part of the map has paradise, three tiers of purgatory, and then hell itself. Each level, except purgatory and Earth, has a Lord. This is a lesser Lord for all tiers except Hell. As you may recall, Lesser Lords have 1/3 normal hit points, but otherwise are fully-functional. The invasion tokens are spawned in hell, and march upwards through the tiers till they reach purgatory. When they exit purgatory, doom is scored. (Presumably they are attacking heaven’s gates, but who knows really?)
You can move from Earth to any of the levels (except Hell – you can only attack Hell once all the lesser lords are killed). Thus, you can bounce around between levels, going to Hell Time after Hell time. One interesting feature of this map is that at game start, the demons are ONLY in Hell Time areas. You have to attack a Lord if you attack at all. Of course once demons have moved into Paradise, or you’ve killed a Lord or two some non-Hell Time spaces open up for you to score courage. But it is quite an experience.
How to Defeat the Purgatory map
It’s pretty straightforward. Figure out which of the lesser Lords you want to take on first, then hit it again and again till it’s dead. Meanwhile, don’t let the demons get away from Paradise.
Eventually you will have cleared out the three lesser Lords and, as with the Vatican map, you have to take on the final Lord in the late game. But it’s pretty cool to actually be in an area officially labeled “Hell”.
