victory conditions - Bonus?

Post by revolushn » April 27th, 2008, 12:42 am

Just wondering if there was a list of what the bonuses are if you finish scenarios in a campaign before you have to. I always try to get the bonus condition if I can, but often dont know what I actually get as my bonus (other than gold for finishing x number of turns early).

For example in HttT, What is the bonus in bay of pearls? I killed both enemy leaders quite quickly but couldnt work out what it was that I was rewarded with... Some are obvious like an extra unit or two - gotta love loyal units, but i was just wondering if there was somewhere I could see what the bonuses are.

cheers - rev

IIRC the bonus in BoP is the choice of which scenario comes next - if you destroy the land leader within the time, but not the sea leader, you go direct to muff malal, and vice versa to the isle of the damned.

I think.

In general, the bonus is cash, in the form of an early finish bonus.

yeah i gather that. But are the scenarios that stipulate in brackets that there is a bonus if you kill the leader (instead of just surviving turns or reaching a point still just cash? It would seem that we wouldnt need to be told that there was a bonus in that case as there is always a bonus for finishing before the time runs out.

Play TROW and you'll see that not always. :wink:

In HTTT -- yes, 'bonus' there usually means something additional. Sometimes it's even not mentioned as a bonus, like gryphons in 10th scenario or Dwarvish Guardsmen in 15th.

Simply kill orcs before they killed the Dwarvish leader. Then he will give you Guardsmen.

If you kill both leaders you get to choose what scenario you play next (Isle of the Damned or the peninsula one)
