Receiving news of her father's death, Catherine Ironfist, Queen of Enroth, sails for Erathia to attend her father's funeral. Fearing the worst, she assembles a military fleet as her escort. Arriving on the coast of Erathia, Catherine finds an allied wizard's tower, devastated from battle and abandoned, and learns Erathia is falling to its enemies. Mustering local armies, Catherine marches to Erathia's capitol, restoring lost land along the way. While rescuing Erathia's besieged capitol, Catherine discovers her father was poisoned with a goblet of wine. Setting herself up as queen, Catherine goes to war to restore Erathia's borders and discover her father's murderer. In the course of war, in an attempt to counter Catherine's recent successes, her enemies resurrect her buried father as an undead “lich” and make him general of their armies.

In Heroes III, you control the actions of heroes to complete mission objectives in a variety of conflicts taking place in the mythical land of Erathia. As heroes travel across the land with their armies, they can explore, seek artifacts, and find treasure, as well as lead their armies into battle. Towns can also have armies garrisoned for their defense and act as centers for recruitment, the learning of magic spells, and trading. Towns you conquer become part of your territory. You may develop your towns to provide yourself with offensive, defensive, and logistical advantages.

Missions can be self-contained single scenarios, linked together into multiscenario campaigns, or played as multiplayer scenarios against other human players across a network. While a vast array of predesigned scenarios come with the game, you can also create your own using the Map Editor tool.
