Fit out the seat of your clan to build a mighty and prestigious fortress, and upgrade it continuously with better weapons and defense facilities. Pursue the evil Clan Chief from one battle to another, and grow stronger and more powerful. You start out with a small shack, but you will soon be able to improve and expand each element of your residence. Eventually, you will become the lord of an extensive castle, able to withstand heavier attacks. You can play the campaign battles as often as you wish, for an unlimited time.
