Description

The sequel to the 2007 role-playing game Eschalon: Book I takes the player out of familiar surroundings and into a completely new part of the world of Eschalon.

Like its predecessor, the game is an old-school turn-based role-playing game with the outcome of every action being determined by the player statistics. New additions include weather effects (which actually influences gameplay), the option to select the gender of your character, the addition of hunger and thirst affecting your survival, and making items and equipment suffer from entropy. Most of these additions can be turned off before playing for more conservative players.

Thaermore has fallen, overrun by monsters from neighbouring Amireth. You have been forced to flee to the land Midlande, purchasing a cottage just outside of the town of Eastwillow. Your life becomes slow and uneventful. That is until you discover a note left on you doorstep asking for you to see a man you do not remember ever meeting....
