    Age of Wonders

    The story begins in the early days of Earth when a fragile balance of peace exists between all ancient races. The introduction of humans into this utopian world marks the beginning of violent and bloody limes. In its quest to expand and destroy, this new race lays waste to the ruling Elfin court. From the rubble, two factions emerge: the vengeful Cult of Storms and the peace-loving Keepers.

    Age of Wonders II: The Wizard's Throne

    Awakened to join an immortal group of Wizards in the Circle of Evermore, you must restore balance to a world on the brink of collapse. Powerful spheres of magic are thrown against one another in a war of Wizards the likes of which have never been seen. By mastering magical forces of creation and dealing with the deities who govern them, you must establish a fantasy empire and confront other Wizards in your quest to control THE WIZARD’S THRONE.
