Description

Rage of Mages is an isometric role-playing game, in which the main character and his companions must journey through the world of Kania, on a quest to find a magical weapon that will break the cycle of war. The player generates the protagonist by making him either a Mage or a Fighter, each with their own skills and disciplines that may involve weapon proficiencies, elemental spells and resistance to them, etc. The player also allocates points into the four main attributes - Body, Agility, Mind, and Spirit. Over the course of the game other characters will join the party. NPCs can also be hired to tackle some of the more difficult missions. Combat is done in real time and relies on tactical preparations and planning.
