Shadows Over Ashan, global mod for Heroes 7 with new faction – Xel

What exactly is this mod and what happened to the Wryn Pendragon: Umbramancer project?

Shadows Over Ashan (TSoA) is a so-called “global modification”, meaning that it works like any official DLC. It will add new things to the original game, specifically a new nation/town and units which you can play in both single player skirmish maps and multiplayer maps on one PC (hot seat).

The original Wryn Pendragon: Umbramancer (WPU) project was canceled, but its strong foundations gave rise to this DLC. Except for campaigns and a script-based systems, everything has been preserved.

Unfortunately, not everything can be edited in the Heroes 7 editor, so these problems may occur while playing:

  • There is no Xel town music.
  • There is no Xel town siege map (Dungeon one is used instead).
  • There is no Xel town for scenario maps (those has already preset starting towns – even if you select Xel from the menu).
  • We do not recommend playing in windowed mode (game may crash).
