      Your party begins as slaves in the city of Draj. You must find a way to escape into the hostile wilderness, join with other escaped slaves and create a rebel force powerful enough to destroy the evil sorcerer-king's armies. Your party moves realistically across the screen picking up and examining objects, interacting with physical surroundings, conversing with characters and battling monsters.
