___|1: BASICS|______________________________________
 Ok, I hate strategies who start off all personal so anybody who wants to learn 
anything about myself personally can go to the end of the strategy.
 Starting the game you should forget about all the units in the castle apart 
from the maximum amount of pikemen your character can get for protection, go to 
the nearest town and rent a boat.   Take this boat around the edge of your 
current continent and put all the gold you find as leadership by giving  it to 
your peasants, try to get to the next continents as quickly as possible.
 Leadership System:
 The first thing you need to understand about the game is this, your progress in 
the game depends solely on your ability to run a decent army.  You can have all 
the money in the world and still not have the ground to have a decent army.  The 
reason for this is the "leadership system".  To explain the leadership system 
the amount of leadership points your character has is linked with the size of 
the army you have.  In finer detail you cannot have an army with a higher mass 
hitpoint value than your leadership point value.
 e.g  50 militia has hitpoints of 100, which works out to 2 hitpoints for each 
unit, if your leadership is 100 the most you can have in your army is 50 
militia, any more than that and they will go out of control, rebelling against 
 Completing game:
 You don't *need* to kill every contracted villain in the game, apart from in my 
eyes you really should because it doesn't feel like you've completed it properly 
otherwise, you just need to locate the scepter to complete the game, you do this 
by checking the "check puzzle pieces" and seeing if the place is familiar yet.
 Morale Group:
 Morale groups are what distinguishes whether your armies are happy or sad, you 
cannot mix two armies who dislike each other, eg dragons don't like Giants.
 Here is a chart showing the UNits morale group  
        A     B    C   D  E     LEGEND : N = Normal
                                         H= High
      A N     N    N   N  N              L= Low
      B N     N    N   N  N
      C N     N    H   N  N
      D L     N    L   H  N
      E L     L    L   N  N
 For full units morale group see troop strengths chart.
___|2: Species|______________________________________
 Militia are not very defensive units, they are killed easily because they have 
a hit point value of just 2.  Their attack value is of 1-2 which is also very 
weak, these are emergency units and should only be used in dire needs.  movement 
is 2 paces
 Attack Value 1-2
 Hitpoints 2
 movement 2
 Archers are the worst of the shooting type of units, they have a hitpoint value 
of 10 and an attack value of 1-2 but attack values of archers should be nulled 
due to the fact that their bow attack values are not listed.  They move at two 
paces at a time.
 Attack Value 1-2, bow 1-3
 Hitpoints 10
 Movement 2
 Pikemen are the best units available in the castle at the beginning of the 
game, they can move at two pace at a time,have 10 hitpoints and a attack value 
of 2-4 making them great in close combat at this stage. 
 Attack value 2-4
 Hitpoints 10
 Movement 2
 Peasants, ahem..... suck.  they have 1 hitpoint, their attack value is 1 and 
they have a movement value of 1, they can only be bought at around 300 at a time 
and, they just totally suck... lets put it this way, I've seen 5 dragons take 
out 3000 peasants.
 Attack Value 1
 Hitpoints 1
 movement 1
 Sprites are not the best creatures due to their awful hitpoints, exactly the 
same as peasants, but they can fly(move anywhere) and they have got an attack 
value of 1-2.
 Attack Value 1-2
 Hitpoints 1
 Movement FLY
 Nomads are quite good creatures if you have them in a large enough group, they 
are quite tough to kill early on in the game with the hp value being 15 and they 
are quite strong with an attack power of 2-4, they can move at 2 paces at a 
 Attack Value 2-4
 Hitpoints 15
 Movement 2
 Ghosts are very dangerous creatures to have for two reasons, one is that if the 
week of the peasant falls when you have ghosts in your army, they will be 
resurrected as peasants.  THe other is that every unit a ghost kills turns into 
a ghost and joins you.  I know your probably thinking that is a good thing but 
it isn't.  The reason for this is that it is easy to get too many ghost and have 
an out of control army.
 attack value 3-4
 hitpoints 10
 movement 3
 Gnomes are underrated creatures and in large numbers can be worthy adversaries, 
they are quite strong and have a fair amount of hitpoints.
Attack value 1-3
 Hitpoints 5
 Movement 1
 Orcs are great.  They are by far my favourite army in the game.  They have a 
hitpoint value of 5, a damage of 2-3, which is different when they are firing 
arrows and a movement value of 2.  They are not the best archers in the game but 
are good all rounders as they are good at hand to hand fighting also.
 Attack value 2-3, bow 1-2
 Hitpoints 5
 movement 2
 Elves are great archers, but don't get them involved in a close combat fight as 
they will just lose it.  
 Attack Value 1-2, bow 2-4
 Hitpoints 10
 Movement 3
 Wolves are ok fighters, they have good movement and are not too bad but not 
something you'll want later on in the game.
 Attack Value 1-3
 Hitpoints 3
 Movement 3
 Skeletongs are a lot like wolves, only not as good...
 Attack Value 1-2
 Hitpoints 2
 movement 3
 Zombies are steady fighters, they are moderately strong and have alright 
hitpoints, they can't move very fast though:(.
 Attack Value 2
 Hitpoints 5
 Movement 1
 Dwarves are like Gnomes but better lol.  They are stronger, more hitpoints but 
the same movement.
 Attack value 2-4
 Hitpoints 20
 Movement 1
 Ogres are quite hard to kill especially early in the game but luckily they have 
a very small attack level for their hitpoints.
 Attack Value 3-5
 Hitpoints 40
 Movement 1
 Trolls are good creatures to have for a number of reasons.  Firstly they have 
high hitpoints, secondly they regenerate their hitpoints.  A minus factor is 
that they are very weak. 
 Attack Value 2-5
 Hitpoints 50
 Movement 1
 Barbarians are good fighters, they are a great addition to your army and until 
you find something better they'll do lol.
 Attack Value 1-6
 Hit Points 40
 Movement 3
 18: Giants
 GIants are just great, you won't find them until you get to the last continent, 
saharia.  They are very very good, just look at their stats.
 Attack value: 10-20, throw 5-10
 hit points 60
 movement 3
 19: Archmages
 Archmages may seem awful at first due to the fact they haven't got a large 
amount of hitpoints for their cost and that they have a low attack level, but 
they can fire two fireballs every battle which are absolutely devastating, plus 
they can fly, these are my second favourite armies.
 Attack value 2-3 shoot 50+
 hit points 25
 movement fly+1
 20: Druids
 Druids are a lot like archmages except for they have three shots, but they 
can't fly.
 attack value 2-3 shoot 45+
 hit points 25
 movement 2
 21: Vampires
 Vampires are quite good creatures, however they are expensive.  They are good 
because as they fight they can revive lost vampires by killing other races.  
 Attack Value 3-6
 Hit points 30
movement fly + 1

 Their.... alright I suppose, but there are much better armies out there, trust 
me, just experiment and you'll see they are not great.
 Attack Value: 3-5
 Hit points 20
 Movement 4

 Demons are good creatures to have for one reason, if you have one measly demon 
against a 100 dragons, he can kill 50 in one blow thanks to his kill half 
 attack value 5-7
 hit points 50
movement fly +1
 24: Knights
 Knights are quite good fighters, (instant army, see secrets).
 Attack value 6-10
 hit points 35
 movement 1
 The big expensive guys, very strong but require the best leadership abilities 
to handle.
 Attack Level 25-50
 Hit points 200
 Movement Fly+1

Each artifact has its own seperate effect, here is a short description of each::

Amulet of Augmentation:
The amulet amplifies the users spell power, this is useful if you are the 
sorceress as it doubles your usefulness, whereas if you are the barbarian it 
helps because he has very low magic powers.

Anchor of Admiralty:
When renting a boat, the amount you need to pay weekly drop from 500 to 100 gold 
for the holder of the artifact.

Articles of Nobility:
The payment your character recieves every week increases dramatically.  The King 
pays you more money because the articles signify extraodinary service to the 
kingdom through historic action.

Book of Necros:
This book increases your spell memory which is very handy when you are using the 
instant army + cheat.  

Crown of Command:
This is one of, if not the most important artifact in the game.  It doubles your 
leadership thus making you able to have an army of double size.

Ring of Heroism:
Like the crown of command this also increases your leadership, but it also 
increases your luck by helping you beat impossible odds, e.g a giant killing a 

Shield of Protection:
Makes your army harder to defeat by increasing their hitpoints.

Sword of Prowess:
Makes your army stronger by increasing their attack values.

___________General Tactics _____________________________________________

Not a lot of people do this but if your army consists of all creatures which can 
fly, then by pressing B you can fly.  note that sprites don't count as they are 
too small to lift the character.  Units which do work are : 

The instant army/raise control trick:
Note(you must be on the highest possible rank for your character)
This is something which you can do to kill arech dragonbreath easily.  This is 
what you must do, first buy two town gate spells, and one castle gate spell.   
Go around all the different towns to find a town which you can buy raise control 
spells in, and write the name down, and then a town in which you can buy instant 
army spells in and write the name down.  
Use the town gate spell to go to the town which has the instant army spells in 
and buy the maximum amount, use them all them buy the maximum amount again and 
use them again.  You should know have 1500 Knights/Trolls/Ogres depending on 
your character.  Obviously they will be out of control, so use the town gate 
spell to go to the town which has the raise control spell in, buy enough raise 
control spells to raise your leadership up to enough to handle your units, then 
use the castle gate spell to go to the castle which your having trouble with and 
bingo, one dead dragon ;).

Completing the game effectively!:
Go through the continents, avoiding battles and picking up maps to the new 
continents, from there go to Saharia and find a dungeon/cave/encampment in which 
there are either vampires, demons, dragons or archmages, and buy a small amount 
of them.  Discard ALL your other armies then go back to your boat.  Go to 
Continentia and fly around picking up all the artifacts and treasure.  Then 
Forestria, then Archipella, and finally Saharia, pick up about 5 dragons and 15 
archmages then fly back to continentia and destroy all villains, get your 
promotions then go back to Saharia and buy more dragons/archmages.
Kill all the villains in Forestria and Archipella and get promoted to top 
promotion.  Buy 1 peasant in continentia and take over 1 easy castle.  Garrison 
all your units apart from the peasant then continuosly search the area until you 
get down to about 150 days remaining, you will now have lots of money, garrison 
your peasant and take your other armies then do the raise control trick, 

___Personal Info_____________________________________

Ok now about me, my name is Chris Jones and I am a 16 year old from Wales in the 
Kings Bounty was one of my favourite games of all time and I feel that it didn't 
get the praise that it deserved.  Might and Magics makers were said to be 
greatly inspired by this game, and thanks to the emulation age maybe more and 
more people will see the game and buy it now.  
Anyways if anyone wants to add more info to this strategy, just say hi or wants 
to talk about anything especially rpgs for the old 8 and 16 bit consoles, email 
me at or send me an ICQ message on the number      

Anyway til next time.
