    Bard's Tale Fans, Rejoice!

    The designers of the Bard's Tale series, Wasteland and Battle Chess wanted to pool their talents to create the ultimate role-playing fantasy. They knew it had to be a first rate story with state-of-the-art animated graphics. The result was Dragon Wars.

    King Drake of Phoebus has declared all magic illegal - magickers have been slain or fled into exile. In retaliation, enemy islands have threatened to unleash their dragons - beasts who are the most destructive force in Oceana. Docked at a harbor in Dilmun, you are arrested on suspicion of spellcasting.

    Imprisoned and stripped of everything but your wits, you are sentenced to life in a dungeon. Magic is your only salvation - a worldly possession in a world possessed.

    • Over 60 monsters and 65 spells.
    • Supports characters from Bard's Tale I, II, III.
    • A unique combat system: choose complexity of combat resolution, determine spell strength, select tactics of ranged combat.
    • An easy to use pop-up window system.
    • Save the game anywhere.
    • A paragraph book to enhance storytelling.
    • No graph paper needed. Auto-map keeps track of your every move.

In retaliation, enemy islands have threatened to unleash their guardian dragons, the most destructive force in the world. While docked at a harbor in Dilmun, you are arrested on suspicion of spellcasting.
