Hard Mode is only available in the Veteran version of The Banished Cells I. When you get to the final boss fight against High Kinlord Rilis, you have the option to activate the Scroll of Glorious Battle, located on a corner of the central platform. Activating the scroll will display the following:
- <This scroll bears the insignia of the Undaunted and a potent spell, conceived of by the renowned Hroltar the Boaster. When invoked the scroll will empower one's enemies with astonishing power.
- The full incantation isn't short on colorful language.>
- Give me a foe worth bragging about!
Activating the scroll will cause a blinding flash of light and will make the boss fight more difficult. If your group dies, the scroll will need to be activated again to reenable Hard Mode.
