I've now successfully completed the Sharee game. Paladin and wraiths did the bulk of the work, with hydras appearing at the end. After that I finally had some luck with Horus and started on an island of my own. Early on I could hardly have been more pathetic, but my power level went nuts late game with magic-immune heroes. I cast the spell of mastery and raked in 9822 points. I'm currently playing as Oberic. Thanks to an ideal map, a balls-to-the-wall rush with hell hounds allowed me to defeat three wizards before 1406. I rule Arcanus; it's only a matter of cracking open a tower and conquering Myrror.
