DescriptionThe world exists apart from Chaos through the use of a Magical Crystal. This crystal gives life to the world. Outside the realm of the crystal's power, there is Chaos -- no sunlight and no magic.
The world is made up of Elves, Humans, and Dwarves, though the dwarves have moved underground. Through trickery by a wizard who wanted to destroy the crystal, the elves waged war against the humans in an effort to destroy the crystal. However, the humans were able to defeat the elves. The wizard did not like losing and has brought the undead and other monsters into the world to destroy it. It is up to you to search for and find this crystal in order to prevent the chaos that is threatening your world.
Battle Mages is a real-time strategy game (RTS) with role-playing elements. Characters in the game will respond to your actions as well as live their lives without your intervention. This allows the game to become more realistic as you take your character through quests in an effort to locate the crystal.
You may choose from four characters for your own character (three types of mages as well as a mage that specialized in tactics). Then choose upgrades for your character and find various armors, weapons, and artifacts to help you on your journey. You may recruit units to help you in your quests as your travel throughout the lands.
You can view the entire map by scrolling around, but if you move too far from your units, you will start losing mana.
