SCG IV The Black Moon Tribe

We are the last homeless members of the Dark Moon Tribe...we where expulsed from our Homeland because we refuses to bow before their "God of light" gave up our proud Worship of the God of War&Death...we spitted at the feet of his dammed messenger...but...then he sends some Flamming Bird to punish us...our Weapons...our armor..melting away within secounds...and then came their Avatars...a eagleyed archer and a mercyless Warrior swinging a great twohanded Hammer...

After a long odyssey a few clans gathered here...we will rest,gather strenght and convoke the Tribe...gather a new Horde...and prepare our revenge

Basic Rules as Always

"Special Rules"
1.Again up to 15 Turn per "Rule"

15. School of sorcery, attack gargoyles.
16. paladin's boots. attack clerics.
17. lost 2 barbs, fair wind, dispel(sell). Chaos school, ->Goat meadow.
18. Brigands.
19. Short sword, defensive tactic 2. Attack undead.
20. Leather overshoes. Demons. Hire scout, barbs, explore.
21. scout - undead 6, skip. Commander - lost all barbs, chalice of life, short staff.
22. Scout - nothing, comm takes barbs, attacks undead.
23. scout - farm, orcs 4, level(marksmanship2). Commander - leather belt. Workshop, bow and arrows for scout. Scout - rainbow walley, commander -potane.
24. scout - battle mages, commander - clerics.
25. scout - Restoration, round shield. commander - level (discipline), magic weapon, hand crossbow.

You did counterproductive job by conquering all first ring without clearing sites.
Basically, start should be: clear sites, can't clear - conquer province with sites, and clear them.
Optimal way on this map should have been like - gargoyles&clerics in demesne, then Goat meadow with its 6 sites, where commander could clear all but knowledge store, maybe with 1-2 retreats to demesne for fresh barbs.
This way we could have second hero by turn 5, and second ring by turn 15-20. (conquer->move away->return->clear site->move away instead of conquer->site->move away) - wasting 2 turns per province.

Yes..i can see the point.
I fear i am not very familiar with the commander, until now i used him as a 3.Hero most the time if i have at least T2 Units.
I was slightly upset when I posted this - lost shard in 3 turns after taking reign.
It was
1. school of sorcery - attack holy lands.
2. I won.
Stenria's scout attacked me. killed commander, freely reached castle and besieged demesne. Couldn't even bury com and hire another hero, because had like 5 crystals.
4 nearly dead barbs in the swamp is no match for scout with 3 fresh swordsmen and 2 pikemen.
