A long time ago the world was once ruled by an Empire of Magic where many mages lived. During the reign of its 23rd High Mage the empire reached a period of peace and prosperity. In the midst of this period strange things began to take place in outlying territories. Whole garrisons of soldiers and scattered townspeople disappeared without a trace. Undead raise from their graves to spread death and destruction across the empire. The school of Adu sends its apprentice Artemian to find out what is causing the strange occurrences.

Control Artemian in this fantasy turn-based strategy game as he searches for the truth. Travel through 12 levels over a wide range of terrains from snow-covered mountains to fiery deserts. Control over a hundred different units and spells as you conquer evil. Take on a wide variety of quests from capturing towns to saving townspeople from an evil death.

You control several groups of set number of soldiers with one hero. Each character has a set number of action points in which to use in traveling and fighting. Use a vast number of spells from Druid, Mage and Psionic to defeat your enemies. Train your troops in conquered towns to upgrade them along with your heroes.

Special features include a difficult setting that rewards you the harder the difficult setting is, many sub-quests that enhance the storyline, using the terrain to your advantage like setting ambushes and sieging castles and a multiplayer system that lets other players play as the enemies, neutral units or allies.
