Mixing the gameplay of Civilization
and similar games into real-time and with a 3D view, players must build up a small village in the Dungeons and Dragons fantasy universe into a Stronghold. How much micro-management you wish to do is up to you; the computer can take care of much of it.
You recruit and train Fighters, Thieves, Clerics and Magic Users to venture out and claim more land and resources, which include removing hostile forces. Take control of food supply and the production and management of buildings including castles, markets and magic schools.
Your victory condition is based on your alignment: Lawful players must advance to the rank of Emperor, Chaotic players must destroy all enemy strongholds, and Neutral players must do both!

The Press Says
There are currently no topics for this game.
Although some may consider them overly simplistic compared to Advanced Dungeons&Dragons rules, Stronghold performs well with the bare bones Dungeons&Dragons rules. That's the reason why there's only three alignments and demi-humans' sole 'jobs' are their 'race'.
