You might have to move a file to be able to host it though (check description).

- Choose a coop secondary hero which will change player after death.
- Run around for your hero quest to get a ship.
- Resettle to another land.
- Questing 'n stuff. Maybe even level up once in a while.
I learned from my mistakes in LongRoadHome and LongRoadNorth. In Online Testing I found a lot of mechanics where hard to understand without knowing about them. Thus I tried some new stuff that isn't as complicated anymore:
- As known from other hero maps, the market is now a seperate place where you can buy units/food using a Theocrat. You dont need to be afraid of making a purchase on running up to anyone anymore.
- The troop recruitment system from LongRoadHome is gone. In the market you pay with food/gold and population for troops. The Army Spawn is always close to the active Hero Monument Spawn Point.
- Look out for P0 Healers as you know and love them, making all units healable when you have access to such.
- Personal Quests are better explained, also shorter. Following the green symbol shown in your recruitment area you don't even need to read anything quest related. Just move your hero to the symbols and collect them.
On 100 favor your hero levels up and you get a chat message on what has been improved by how much. XP is gained +1 per killing, 1 for medusas gaze, 100 for each gathering quest (Villagers, Ships, Donkeys) and about 50 to 100 for personal hero quest milestones.
On Level Up the heroes get the following stat modifications:
Atalanta: 3 ATK, 21 HP, 3 Hack Armor
Starting Units: Militia & Arcus
Bellerophon: 1 ATK, 16 HP, 3 Income
Starting Units: Hypaspist & Hero Catapatles
Scorpion Man: 2 ATK, 50 HP, 1 Pop, 1 Income
Starting Units: Mercenary & Chariot Archer
Medusa: 2 ATK, 12 HP, 1 Range
Starting Units: Toxotes & Ulfsark (Heavy Call of Berserker Swine Array)
The Food and Gold Redistribution has been done for the first 3 chapters. The resources found are distributed evenly among all players. So if one player finds 12 gold, on singleplayer he keeps all, on 2 players everyone gets 6 gold, on 3 players everyone gets 4 gold. (P2 should be P2 for two players, so dont put a bot for P2 unless you play alone or want to play on 3 players difficulty with the secondary hero bugged when p2 gets him and doesn't use him ever).
To have easier numbers I worked with a "BaseAmount". For Singleplayer x6 is what he gets. For 2 players x3 is what each player gets. For 3 players x2 is what each player gets.
BaseAmount of 72 (50food, 22gold): ~70% food here.
-- 6 civilians hold 5 BA food each. (30)
-- 4 crate deposits hold 3 to 9 BA food. (20)
-- From 12 corpses 0 to 1 BA gold can be gathered. (9)
-- Killing various enemies and structures accounts for the rest.
Transition River and Area 2:
BaseAmount of 50 (30food, 20gold): 60% food here.
-- 5 supply boats hold 5 BA Food each. (25)
-- 1 crate deposit hold 5 BA Food. (5)
-- 12 donkeys hold 1 BA gold each. (12)
-- 4 corpses and enemies account for the rest of gold. (8 )
BaseAmount of 30 (30 gold): 0% food here.
-- 3 donkeys hold 1 BA gold each. (3)
-- 1 crate deposit holds 0 BA food. (0)
-- corpses hold 8 BA gold. (8 )
-- area quest grants 19 BA gold. (19)
