- For the faction in other games, see Stronghold.
"In a world of constant conflict, you are that conflict. War and turmoil are your tools of self-expression. Under their banners, the Orc clans live free and proud, and the time for vengeance is always at hand. Can you channel the Orcs' demonic anger and avenge your ancestors!?"
Stronghold is a faction in Might & Magic: Duel of Champions.
Constantly defined and mistrusted by the human Holy Empire the Orcs' blood thirsts for war. The Orcs of the Black Skull clan have started to hunt down Griffin troops moving within the free cities and the Wolf Duchy.
Stronghold is a faction oriented on physical combat, particulary offense. It relies on creature's deaths, through Enrage (allied) or Bloodthirst (enemy). Deploying creatures can sometimes be quite fast. Most heroes use Earth magic on their disposal, though there are a number of those that use Air, too.
Stronghold's units are beastmen (harpies), orcs, cyclopes, centuars and goblins.
Kassar Blackskull is the only hero in Duel of Champions that does not have any Magic schools, has 21 Health and had its own artwork, despite never available to be played as a hero card (he was planned to be featured as an opponent in the campaign, but only remained in the game files).
