He appears in the Master scenario of the Rise of the Necromancer campaign in Heroes of Might and Magic III: The Shadow of Death.

Notes[]

For some time, fans debated whether Ethric of Bracada and Ethric the Mad were the same person or not. This was settled by Jennifer Bullard, a member of the Might and Magic team, who stated that, yes, they were.[1]
