"Some say that once upon a time the Black Archer was the leader of elves in some other world, and that he came to Ardania either seeking his fate or running from it. Others believe that it was he who taught the Arethi elves the dark secrets they know, but later left them to wander the world offering his service and his skill with a bow to any who possesses enough gold to hire. When being asked how he should be named in a contract, the Black Archer always says: "Lord Keeper. That's the only name I have left."
(From "The Overall Description of Everything" by Master Altus Bumblegate)

This unit has the potential of getting two actions that reject Rangedicon damage bonuses; Arrow of Hatred and Arrow of the True Flame. This means that Bodkin Arrow, Heavy Arrow, or Head Shot can get a triple effect of Rangedicon damage bonuses. See Damage Calculation Guide for details.


  • This unit's picture bears a striking familiarity with the hero Sagittel, one of the protagonists of another strategy game, Elven Legacy, made earlier by the same developer. It is also supported by the official lore text, which heavily hints that the Lord Keeper doesn't come from Ardania.
  • Lord Sagittel was also known as the bearer of True Flame in the Elven Legacy (he was also an excellent archer).
