This article contains lore taken from Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness, Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal, the manuals, and/or official bonus maps.
For the Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness version of this mission, see Assault on Hillsbrad (WC2 Orc).

Thandol is the third and final mission of the Horde campaign in Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness Shareware.

This is an early version of the mission Assault on Hillsbrad as seen in the retail game. It shares similar mission objectives, but the map design and mission briefing are different: in the retail game the Horde chooses to attack the kingdom of Lordaeron through the island of Zul'Dare rather than through Khaz Modan. In the retail game the Horde does not turn towards Khaz Modan until the second act.

Mission briefing

The Horde is preparing to launch a massive assault the mainland of Lordaeron.

Alliance forces guard two strategic sites within a network of newly formed ice bridges that create a barrier our warships cannot pass.

In order to launch an attack against these Alliance towns you must claim one of these strategic sites and build up your forces.

Once your armies are in place, proceed to destroy all the defenders of Lordaeron.

Questionmark-medium.png
This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

As its name suggests, Thandol is located somewhere near or within Thandol Valley and the Thandol Span. Alternatively, it may represent an early production name for the Thandol Valley or the Thandol Span bridges which later appeared in the retail release of Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness. If the latter is the case, then it would mean the area was renamed before the retail version of the game was released.
