The Dead Mines is the fourth mission of the Human campaign in Warcraft: Orcs & Humans.
It has been some twenty months since Sir Lothar, one of the crown's greatest heroes, led an expedition into the Dead Mines to search for the Lost Tome of Divinity. They were never heard from again. However, the great knight has recently appeared to the Abbot of Northshire in a vision - battered and pleading for assistance. King Llane has ordered you to lead a detachment of warriors and healers into the mines in an attempt to find Sir Lothar, heal him, and bring him and any other survivors back alive.
Wounded can only be found in this mission, and once they are healed by a cleric, they will resume their roles as Archers.
