Heroes III: The Restoration of Erathia™

Murdered by traitors and resurrected by Necromancers as an undead lich, Erathia's deceased king commands its neighboring enemies to seize his former kingdom. His progress is halted when his daughter Catherine, Queen of Enroth, returns to the shores of her homeland.
In the service of Erathia, beset by enemies external and internal, you command the land's greatest heroes and fiercest creatures in Queen Catherine's war to restore her homeland, discover her father's killer, and free him from the prison of his undead body.

Heroes III: Armageddon's Blade™

In the demon kingdom of Ecofol, Lucifer Kreegan has a vision to set the world on fire by constructing "Armageddon's Blade." Seeking to dethrone this insane king, Catherine invades. However, her generals report the appearance of the fiery Phoenix and mysterious elemental Confluxes. As Cathering contemplates her next move, she wonders -- do these omens foretell of Erathia's victory . . . or the world's destruction?

Heroes III: The Shadow of Death™
