S2C3M5 The Decoupling

The final battle in Hammers of Fate is meant to be the siege of Tor Hrall, by either Haven or fortress troops you are provided with after liberating Horncrest and the Stag Duchy. However, it is possible to not only assemble a sizable army of Inferno troops, but also to capture Tor Hrall with Ylaya and Isabel before liberating Horncrest and joining forces with Duncan and Wulfstan.
The following combat replays were recorded from playing Hammers of Fate in the Tribes of the East game engine, and therefore you will see some grey inferno troops that are alternate Inferno unit upgrades introduced in Tribes of the East.
In using Inferno forces, we also discover something interesting: That the adversary, King Torghal, is scripted to always have maximum mana all the time. In the first video, we see that the demonic Familiars have drained him of all his mana early in the siege, but he nevertheless is restored to his full amount.
The remaining videos show three different replays: A human-controlled Ylaya, an AI controlled Ylaya using the AutoCombat function, and the rarely-used Armageddon in play as Ylaya's Warlock skills allow that spell to harm even normally fire-immune units.

S2C3M2 The Break
The first movie starts with Ylaya passing a garrison. In this mission, she must escape Soulscar territory by passing three garrisons in two, three, and four weeks respectively, before strong forces block the routes. The second movie appears after the final garrison is passed, then cuts to what happened in Dwarven lands while she was spying on the Soulscar.
