King of Dragon Pass (the A# site)
|King of Dragon Pass
King of Dragon Pass is the first computer game set in Glorantha. From the people at A# it "...combines interactive stories and resource management to create an epic saga of conflict, magic, and community".
The game is a great introduction to both Glorantha in general and to the world of the Orlanthi in specific. The game is quite gripping and fun to play and really does force you to think like an Orlanthi would. From my experiences of playing the game they are the most miserable bunch imaginable to try and rule. Cajole would be a much better term! The number of things you have to look after make the game much more challenging...and speaking personally I really enjoy games that allow you to both explore and build things as well as have battles. The game has a lot of the features my favorite games like Civilization II or Masters of Magic have, building, exploring, developing but all on a smaller and more personal level.
All in all it is a very good game that's a lot of fun to play.
